Starless And Bible Black Sabbath
Released: Feb 2006
Label: Alien8 Recordings
This Japanese psychedelic collective -- that has sold somewhere in the neighborhood of a jillion records on the underground -- delivers this ode to two major influences (King Crimson and Black Sabbath) with their usual dedication to total brain annihilation. The title cut begins by slicing the riff from Sabbath's "The Thrill of It All" in half, then finishes by setting the inner universe on fire. Totally excellent music for going insane to. "Woman from a Hell" sounds like Spacemen 3 in a knife fight with Mainliner.
