9/10 according to on Fri 29 Jun, 2012

Oren Ambarchi and Haino have been playing together a fair bit recently. I guess it was only a matter of time before Stephen O'Malley got in on the action. On this occasion he's playing bass, Oren is on drums and Lord Haino guitar, synths and vocals for another power trio record.

This recording is from a concert in Paris circa November 2011. When things open up Haino's vocals growl almost demonically, underpinned by gentle possibly brushed drums and mysterious tinkles. O'Malley is fairly restrained on the bass, almost feels like he's finding his place within the trio. I like to think that his involvement though will at least get some Sunn O))) fans checking out Haino's stuff - Oh and shitting hell what about Fushitsusha reforming!!! I’m off to Newcastle to see them which I never thought would happen as long as I live.

Anyway, when things get going the trio work really well together - Oren can really smash it out on the drums which compliments Haino's caustic guitar howls and once O'Malley gets going on the bass he does a decent job to be fair. If you've been digging the recent Haino/Ambarchi/O'Rourke outings then there's no reason not to add this one to the collection. It's a nice recording and has lovely artwork to boot.

Oh and gotta love those track titles. I think Haino is the new Shakespeare. I don't follow a great deal of rock music these days but Haino is one I'll always check. To me his charm is that he manages to embody the true spirit of rock 'n' roll while simultaneously shattering it into oblivion. Mix that up with some spiritual eastern magic and you have a true character that wields the six stringed axe like no other (Buzz Osbourne and Matthew Bower are probably exceptions). Ideologic Organ is coming into it's own as a very interesting label that has a nice contrast with Editions Mego. That Akos Rozmann LP was an absolute blinder. Recommended!

So, what do you think?
