Seven That Spells - Superautobahn (2012)

The tenth album from this Croatian space rock band.

Three compositions, one hour long album. That is what we get here. When listening to this album before reading the credits, I thought this music sounded like if Mr. Kawabata Makoto from Acid Mothers Temple had worked with the band on this album. Guess what ? He is the guitar player here ! That explain why this album is such a racket, such an hour full of distorted space rock.

The first song The Wall is a pretty chaotic songs which leads nowhere. The second song The Pyramid is a pretty melodic, slightly distorted three bars bass line with tonnes of distorted guitars and saxophones on the top of that. For twenty-two minutes, that is. The best song here by miles. The final song The Colossus is a more heavy song again where chaos reigns and there is a bit more melodies in swing.

The end result is a very heavy, a times very chaotic space rock album which have a pretty basic rhythm structure upon where our Japanese friend Kawabata Makoto uses to unleash terror with his distorted guitars. For some reason, this album actually work. This is actually a good album and I like it a lot. Check it out if you can.
