by Steve Moore
Released: Oct 2007
Label: Relapse Records
Steve Moore's debut solo album is cut from similar cloth as his band Zombi's work, shrouded in velvety analog synths and minor-key affect. But The Henge takes Halloween-inspired melodies and launches them into deep space, where they meet up with Germany's kosmische tradition. For all its somber restraint, the album ventures far and wide, variously deploying cavernous rock drumming, new age arpeggios, ominous choral pads and even the black-hole guitars of bands like Sunn O))). It's sequenced as expertly as an art film; you emerge into the light feeling reborn.
