Artist: CARLTON MELTON/QUMRAN ORPHICS
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Mid To Late
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Brand new split of heavy freakiness from one of our favorite local bands CARLTON MELTON teamed up here with new-to-us bizarre shamanistic cult collective QUMRAN ORPHICS. The Melton side is two 10-minute slabs, the first, "March Of The Cicadas," sounds exactly like the title implies, a slowmotion dirge over martial rhythms with buzzing electronic hisses and stratospheric guitar leads. The closer, "Murder Ridge" is a noirish Bardo Pond-like spiral of burning sonic embers and sustained decay. The Qumran Orphics side is a stranger beast altogether. Recorded from a live set at the Blank Club in San Jose, Qumran Orphics is led by KFJC DJ CY THOTH (host of the show Firebunker, that plays lots of our favorite metal and experimental sounds), backed by an array of simmering guitars and shifting droning electronics. Like a strange and unfurling Crowleian ritual, Cy Thoth croakingly intones bizarre utterances one might hear in an H.P. Lovecraft story. Its a wild and charged performance. Not sure where this project will go next, all info on the group is rather scant or cryptic, but were definitely curious!" - Mid to Late.
