It seems like with every latest improvisational album from Rune Grammofon, I say to myself, "there's no way that this can continue any longer." I keep telling myself that the next release I hear from the label will simply run aground and afoul as it retreads similar ideas from past groups on the label, but here is Bushman's Revenge proving me wrong once again. You Lost Me At Hello is the second album from the young trio comprised of Even Helte Hermansen, Gard Nilssen, and Rune Nergaard, and it finds them taking the groundwork laid by fellow Rune Grammofoners and then stomping down on the pedal even further.
The most similar group that one might draw comparisons to is Scorch Trio, but whereas that former group tended to double-dip on the avant jazz leanings with explosions of Hendrix-style shredding, Bushman's Revenge leans much more rock and even metal. "Count The Holes In Your Head" kicks off the 8 track, 50-minute album and it's full-on doom sludge, with an absolutely thunderous rhythm section that grinds away behind alternately massive slab riffs of guitar and arm-bending pyrotechnics.
On the flipside, album-closer "Champagne For My Real Friends" opens with some clean guitar chord progressions that make it sound like it's going to be a real lighter-raising balladeer. Over the course of 5 minutes, though, the group slowly twists and grinds it through a passage of squiggling psych and finally a chant-along chorus that arrives as some sort of twisted version of what you might have expected in the first place. It's one of the more straightforward cuts on the entire release, and it's still pretty darn massive.Read more ›
