Editorial Reviews

These psy-trance innovators have become one of the biggest electronic bands on the planet. Twice ranked among the world's ten best DJs by the bible of the scene, the UK's DJ Magazine, the Israel-bred, LA-based duo bring a frenetic rock energy to the form. Their explosive show, featuring guitars, live drums, intensely passionate vocals, and an ambitious multimedia backdrop ranks among the genre's most unpredictably joyous events. Their recordings continually venture where other electronic acts fear to tread. The follow-up to 2007's "Vicious Delicious" marks a return to their metal roots. Guests include Jonathan Davis (Korn) and Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction, Porno For Pyros, Satellite Party).

I'll say right now--this is probably my second favorite album.

This album is basically exactly what you would expect from IM if you have followed them for their last few albums.

I am a fairly new Infected Mushroom fan, and I am really enjoying Legend of the Black Shawarma.

This album is basically exactly what you would expect from IM if you have followed them for their last few albums. Viscous Delicious was a big step on the way from pure trance to the unique sound that IM has developed. You will recognize, in this CD, several themes introduced in Viscous Delicious CD, but the songs and sounds are evolving and more refined than they were in Viscous Delicious, while still raw and in your face. I am not certain that this CD has quite as much energy as say 'Eat it Raw' and a couple other songs on Viscous Delicious had, but overall, I think I like it better, as there is not a single track on this CD that is boring. Perhaps the best way to state it is that if Viscous Delicious had moments ranging from 6-10, this album is a solid 8-9 all the way through.

Personally, I feel there is plenty of pure trance out there, if that's what I am looking for, but when I am in the mood for IM, there is nothing else like them. I am so glad they decided to continue on the evolutionary path they are on, because there is nobody else doing what they do and I love what they are doing.

Just a good, original, fresh album. If you are an I.M. fan, then there is no reason in the world why you should not purchase and enjoy this album from front to back, especially if you were a fan of the 2nd Converting Vegetarians CD. While it is a good album, if you are looking for psytrance, you should just hit the 'back' button on your browser. Contrary to popular belief, Infected Mushroom IS NOT psytrance, so do not buy this and expect "The Gathering", because you will be greatly disappointed. The album quality is high, the music is very new and exciting and it deserves the respect that all I.M. albums deserve.

The first few listens had me kind of shaking my head, because you never know quite what to expect from these guys. And that's why they're one of the more interesting groups out there. I still can't stand the first track, but this album's otherwise in top rotation for me right now.

Infected Mushroom has gotten progressively more metal (many of the riffs from Vicious Delicious could have been lifted wholesale from Poison), and this album continues and expands on that trend. It's a functional album -- perfect for aggressive situations. It's not some cheesy testosterone-fest though: this music has a twisted sense of glee -- it's not brutal, humorless noise. There's nuance here -- songs get more interesting after ten listens; the opposite effect of most music I hear.

Infected Mushroom has always been the most perfect running music out there, and it's great for the car if you're in a hurry. Not so great for background music at a mixed-company dinner party.

This album has some gems, and I'm delighted to see they're still evolving.

In the beginning of its career, Infected Mushroom focused almost exclusively on creating danceable music in the electronic, psychedelic trance style. Over time they have gradually transformed their music, increasingly incorporating various elements of other musical styles they are interested in, such as rock. Legend of the Black Shawarma really exemplifies their various influences. While Legend of the Black Shawarma is a great compilation of electronic and danceable synthesizer music, the synthesized melodies are also laden with vocals and guitar, reflecting the musicians' interest in rock and metal music. My favorite track off of the new album is "Saeed." It is a really interesting piece with a great blend between electronic computer music, guitar and vocals, and I think "Saeed" really epitomizes the work Infected Mushroom is does in blending trance with other musical forms to create something new.
I really like how "Saeed" starts with a computerized sound made into a rhythm - the sound is reminiscent of a vocal sample that has been processed and then assembled into a rhythm. This rhythm sets the stage for the strong rhythm which joins in around the 25 second mark, and another rhythmic layer that is added in about 40 seconds into the piece. These layers of percussion were actually achieved by tapping on an acoustic guitar and then processing the result. When the vocals initially begin they are so processed that the words cannot be made out - in this section, Infected Mushroom actually cut the syllables of the words and used only selected snippets. It is not until about one minute into the song that the vocals are able to be discerned in what can be considered the chorus of "Saeed.

Any Infected Mushroom fan should find something to like in this album. If you are a fan of classical Infected Mushroom, the songs "Herbert the Pervert," "Project 100," "Franks," and "Slowly" will not disappoint. Some of those sound exactly like their songs did years ago. On the other hand, if you enjoy their rock fusion/lyric-containing songs like the sort prevalent in Vicious Delicious, those are present throughout, especially "Smashing the Opponent" and "Killing Time."

Additionally, there was a music track included on the CD that isn't listed here: "Riders on the Storm -- Infected Mushroom Remix." This was a pleasant surprise, considering Amazon made no mention of it on this description page (though I find now that it is one of the mp3s you can purchase if you do it that way.)

Put shortly, this album is another solid addition to any Infected Mushroom fan's collection.
