Fuck yeah! I've been waiting for this one; sometime in the last year or two Belgium's Sylvester Anfang morphed Amon Duul-style into Sylvester Anfang II and released a stellar track on a split 7" with chums Burial Hex last year that showcased their evolution into a more classically psychedelic sounding ensemble. I couldn't help but write 'ensemble' there, sorry. The crucial difference between that track and their previous percussion-based primitivist freak folk (genuinely actually freaky - check out the cover for Satanische Vrede) for me is the addition of an old school bass sound. It sounds like a proper woody bass, like Chris Hillman style or something, underpinning almost everything here and instantly conjuring up a complementary structure hang their always intriguing atmospheric creations upon. They've always invoked a ritualistic black magic feel but now you're made to feel propelled inevitably towards the sacrifice. The self-titled CD and double LP contains an intoxicating mix of classic outsider sensibilities with modern drone, electronic and noise twists.
