Boomkat Product Review:
When Holy Mountain compare this band to "Mayhem performing Twin Peaks incidentals in a prairie recorded by The KLF" it's with good reason. The grimy black metal soundtracks on offer here sound like they've been recorded onto some shoddy fourtrack recorder that could never really hope to do the ferocity and scourging nature of the band's sound any sort of justice, but what the end product loses in terms of heaviness it more than makes up for in spook-laden, nightmarish ambience. This is especially true of a piece like 'Dreamcast', which comes across like an especially uneasy Xela track, loaded with grotty music box twinkles and a general air of '70s Euro-horror foreboding. More in the style of fizzy, guitar-spun Norse metal, 'Treeman' and 'Encante' are here to remind you that Yoga probably spend a decent amount of their time covered in black and white face paint, LARP-ing it up in the woods at the weekends, but there's so much more going on in here: take for example the cryptozoological death drones of parting piece 'Chupucabra's Rotting Flesh' - it actually sounds rather like one of The Caretaker's blurry, uneven crackle-scapes. Ace.
