Boomkat Product Review:
There's never a shortage of Acid Mothers Temple albums - they seem to fly out of the AMT studio on an almost monthly basis - yet somehow they still manage to drum up some sort of excitement. While there are seldom too many surprises tucked away in these records (the same fuzzed-up guitars and electronic wig-out elements seem to recur over and over again), you get the sense that Kawabata Makoto and his band are in a continuous process of refinement, as if remaking the same glorious psychedelic rock opus over and over again, but in a new parallel universe each time. Glorify Astrological Martyrdom is another impressive turnout for the band, featuring two long-form tracks and one shorter (yet no less sprawling) composition. Pick of the bunch has to be 'Cosmic Soul Death Disco', which features a central riff Tony Iommi himself would be proud of. The grinding low end hook evolves and morphs across the twenty-nine minute duration while insanely energetic guitar solos spider outwards and the usual cocktail of theremin abuse and cochlea-damaging oscillations hit you from the widest possible angles of the mix. Marvellous stuff - and the other two tracks don't exactly let the side down. While 'Phantom Utopia Or Suicidal Star Warriors' converges on a more experimental mindset with a noise/drone underbelly, 'Stargate Of The Hell' is five minutes of pure prog bliss, closing - as all songs of this ilk were surely meant to - with a gong blast feeding back into a tape loop for a painful thirty-second coda. Tremendous.
