Boomkat Product Review:
First vinyl edition of Zoviet France’s sought-after 1991 album of ambient-industrial nuance, originally issued via Canada’s Death Of Vinyl Entertainment, now as part of the ‘Châsse 2ᵉ’ set in Vinyl-On-Demand’s comprehensive reissue programme
With patented hypnotic traction, ZF invoke mesmerising ur-states of mind with mystic loops and vocal mantras encrypted in the band’s secretive matrix of FX. It’s definitely not recommended for use while operating heavy machinery, or even writing for that matter - it’s a sort of “ambient” musick but will lure your attention away and absorb susceptible heads in its nuanced, inharmonic complexities with uncanny traction and potential. Seriously save it for somewhere padded, lowlit and private and allow the shamans to do their work in return for a rare session of the lushest, altered, hypnagogic states.
