Intersections by Mekong Delta
Released: May 2012
Label: Steamhammer
Given their earlier output's elusiveness, there's a public service in these German thrash weirdoes re-recording a career-spanning selection of old material with their current lineup: Only bassist Ralph Hubert remains since 1985, the other four new since 2008. For those who've ignored Mekong until now, this serves as a fascinatingly playable de facto best-of: art-rock structures given speed-metal velocity under power-prog operatics. "Sphere Eclipse" hits like some ingenious higher-math bricolage of Voivod, '70s Scorpions, Van Der Graaf Generator, Magma and Amon Duul II. The songs stick, too.
