Boomkat Product Review:
On this new full-length from Thee Silver Mount Zion Memorial Orchestra (and the Tra-La-La Band, let's not forget about those guys) you'll find yourself confronted with a series of twelve brief tracks of feedback overtones ushering in the main body of the record, which fires up circa track 13. '1,000,000 Died To Make This Sound' is the fittingly understated title of this first piece proper, striking up with all the bombast you'd expect from such a formidably intense band, led by a central vocal spat out with a whiny venom reminiscent of Public Image Ltd.-era John Lydon. The song develops into a frothing swell of guitar distortion and ferocious drumming before entering a final phase characterised by choral chanting and maudlin, overcast strings. Following on from there, the title track comes as a slow, lumbering heavy rocker before evolving into something approaching the blues halfway through. After all this guitar-driven fury the album's second half allows some small amount of respite. You'll still encounter unforgiving levels of intensity, but the guitar abrasion is offset by a more accommodating approach to string ensemble dynamics, particularly during the quite wonderful 'BlindBlindBlind'. Highly Recommended.
