- Final Exit by Umberto
9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 18 January 2012
Below the artist and title of this new Umberto one-sider (the other side is a picture disc too) is the following statement - 'This Record Is Intended To Accompany The Last Moments Of Your Suffering'. I've gotta assume that he means those blissful few seconds before you die peacefully in comfortable surroundings as opposed to the moment an surprise axe swings toward your ill prepared cranium or the moment you get shot in face drive-by style whilst having a conversation with your mum on the phone because this is a seriously peaceful record. It's like the ghost of a thousand Enya voices lifting you to the heavens. As you might gathered, 'Final Exit' sounds pretty much nothing like his last few Goblin-esque outings. No bad thing mind as this is an excellent indulgence in ambient synth composition. Couple that with a fairly decent concept, from the ghostly synths and vocal tones to the use on a single beat drum beat to symbolise the listeners final few heartbeats, and you've got yourself a winner. The cover art is a photo of a man suffocating himself with a plastic bag. Good times.
Get it while you can, cover art would suggest a John Zorn-esque uber hardcore blast, but it is a 15 minute soundscape piece, much unlike his usual (and very good I might add) Goblin takes, concur to the 5 stars given
Get alerted to new stock from this artist / label.
