SCUM FROM THE SUN “4”

SCUM FROM THE SUN
“4”
(Avantgarde/DecimoPianeta)
I don’t know what it is that sits uncomfortably when I see music being described as doom metal/experimental/industrial. Don’t know if it has anything to do with the Emperor’s new clothes. That you can polish a turd to shine like gold but it is still only a turd. Hopefully this is anything but a turd. Sure it is experimental but it is far from pretentious. This paints soundscapes so grand that it is hard to comprehend on the first listen. You need to devote time to this to fully get the whole picture. Listening to this on head phones I get an almost sick feeling. It is as if it is too much to take in at once. You need to dissect this album into smaller comprehensible pieces for it to sink in completely. That I like it makes it easier to digest it. I don’t even know how to describe it musically but to leave it at the label’s description. Anders Ekdahl
