Editorial Reviews

Unclassifiable and with boundless originality, SHUB-NIGGURATH blends influences of MAGMA, ART ZOYD, UNIVERS ZERO and KING CRIMSON with echoes of PENDERECKI. From this unique alchemy comes a feverish, violent, intense and dark music in which the listener can sometimes hear anguished female vocals and a Robert FRIPP-like guitar. The relatively classical instruments used (Harmonium, guitar, bass, drums & trombone) blend with strange metal sheets sounds when those are either hit or scraped. Reissued by the label Gazul, the first album ""Les Morts Vont Vite"" (1986) is now considered a timeless classic. Issued five years later, ""C'Etaient De Tres Grands Vents"" was recorded by a band reduced to four members only. At this occasion, the line-up from Paris had gone even further into dissonance and contemporary music, abandoning thus all rhythmic patterns and harmonies. ""Testament"" (2003) is the last musical testimony by SHUB-NIGGURATH. The musicians decided to issue those last compositions as a tribute to one of them, recently deceased. Here are then ten tracks that can be classified among the most radical and daring as far as experimenting is concerned. The proof will have been made, one ast time, that SHUB-NIGGURATH was indeed a major band in contemporary music.

Format: Audio CD
It's a tribute to this band that, in succession, each of their three albums have been considered by me my favorite. At this writing, this one comes in third. But at one time it was first. TESTAMENT may always be their best, and it's truly amazing how LES MORTE-- has come on so strong recently for me. Creepy and vile, any true-blue fan of what scares will want to own this album.
