An Albatross

Blessphemy (Of The Peace-Beast Feastgiver And The Bear-Warp Kumite)

The album title "Blessphemy (Of The Peace-Beast Feastgiver And The Bear-Warp Kumite)" is by far the least ridiculous element of An Albatross' debut album, which clocks 18 songs in just under 30 minutes in a way that's likely to make you reconsider your stance on artist originality. Just the album opener "In The Court Of Bear King" makes you think HORSE The Band should be thrown right back into the serious-category with its organ introduction that could be straight from Robin Hood. But before you realize, you're pulled into a chaotic mess that can best be described as Wolfmother on speed, stereoids, LSD and heroine while having an anxious attack.

The first real track (can any of them be called real? you decide), the ridiculously titled "Lysergically Yours, My Psychadelic Bride" takes Wolfmother's 70s rock sound, accelerates it into a ridiculous speed filled with chaotic keyboards and guitars flying in and out all over the place without any real structure, all shadowed by the growling / screaming / singing / shouting / yelling / whatevering vocalist who shouldn't have escaped the mental hospital. Before you realize, the keyboard effects bring in a psychadelic feel, while the pounded drums texturize the whole mess transforming it into one unrecognizable chaos of effect-laden melody and noise, all grinded down to pieces by the lightning-speed guitars. The best part of it all is, that it works!
