Artist: VOICE OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Named after an 1870s tome of lectures on the Apocalypse, RICK TOMLINSONs VOICE OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS distills years of divergent musical exploration that followed his much-acclaimed VOICE OF THE SEVEN WOODS debut (Twisted Nerve, 2007). This time around, multi-instrumentalist and sound sculptor Tomlinson has assembled a full-fledged rock group. On their self-titled new release, infernal and primitive energies mingle with the bucolic reveries that won him previous acclaim. "Open Lighted Doorway" begins the album with a glimmer of the pastoral sounds that mark Tomlinsons earlier recordings, soaked in reverb as if corrupted by time; the monolithic "Kommune" follows with rolling guitars and rhythmic layers of primal percussion. "The Burning Mountain" erupts like flames from an Anatolian mirage-a tide from the East. The purely acoustic "Dry Leaves" offers the listener a momentary respite before "Dalaelven" breaks the spell with its vertiginous howl. This blinding acid haze is broken only by the stripped-down vocal harmonies of the introspective closer "Disappearances." Received a 9/10 rating in NME, a 4/5 rating in MOJO, and 4/5 rating in Uncut." -Holy Mountain
