Laniakea: A Pot Of Powdered Nettles (House of Mythology, 2016)June 12, 2016 at 12:05 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
Magickal collaboration between Massimo Pupillo (Zu) and Daniel O’Sullivan (Ulver, Guapo, Miracle, Grumbling Fur, etc). “The Contagious Magick Of The Superabundance” has dark bassy loops, viola, mantra-like vocals. “The Sky Is An Egg” has proper vocals, and has more strings and a bit of deep bass guitar. “Zone In Parallel Rose” is a bit more industrial-sounding, with rapidly thumping drums and more strings and choral vocals and more upfront vocals/lyrics. “Calcite” is kind of a continuation of the theme of the first song, but it goes into a different direction, with wordless choral vocals/moans, screeching tape noises, a phoned-in children’s voice, some more dark rumbling bass guitar, and other sounds/sensations. Really good, recommended for fans of Coil and anything World Serpent/United Dairies-related.
