Onto Sweden's Keplers Odd with their 3rd album called Strena Seu de Nive Sexangula (A New Year's Gift of Hexagonal Snow). This is their first commercially available album in the UK and it's certainly the first time I've heard them. Also the label is new to me.... Fractured Space Records. A promising start for the label this one. Dark ambient drones and throbs creating a glacial dark icy wonderland in my mind. At times it's quite industrial sounding and it's not for the faint hearted as some tracks are quite harsh (though compared to artists like Prurient it still probably sounds like Abba). I'd like to see these live so they could fill my belly with their weird noises and make me feel all strange. It also makes me think a lot of the possessed forest in Evil Dead 2. That's a funny film..... Anyhoo this is dark and swirly and it's kind of making me feel a bit weird now so I'm turning it off but I do like it.
