Komara – Komara (2015) I started listening this material totally blind. Did not have a clue who these guys are and what kind of experimental/progressive rock they will deliver. The cover art work kind of make me think of Tool (the videos for “Sober” and “Prison Sex” from their brilliantly wicked 93’s “Undertow” album) – but in a bad way. I almost skip the album because this horrible cover. Glad I didn’t!
“Dirty Smelly” have a kind of healthy, driven Faust flavour and starts just like a Nine Inch Nails song left off from the “With Teeth” album or like “Driver Down” from the “Lost Highway” soundtrack. It’s pure alchemy and unleashed Magick! From the second track on I was intensively haunted by the feeling of the Miles Davis/Marcus Miller collaboration “Music from Siesta” (1987). With the last but one track, “Afterbirth” the Faust/Nine Inch Nails feeling it’s back. The best 47 minutes I spend lately and I admit, it’s the only record I’m spinning around ever since. And most probably it will be hard to change it with something else in the near future.
“Komara” it’s an intense, refreshing experience and the living proof that the music it’s not as dead as we might think while we’re listening to the radio.
Then I read the info and I find out who are the guys playing in Komara. (more…)
