Double CD of bleak and sinister metal-oriented improv from the duo of Jamie Saft on keys and bass and Mike Pride on drums and hostile and freakish vocals.
Released in: USA
Bleak and sinister metal-oriented improv from the duo of Jamie Saft on keys and bass and Mike Pride on drums and hostile and freakish vocals. Kalashnikov is another name for an AK-47, the Soviet assault rifle of choice. A fitting name for this band and release, as Mike Pride's drumming bangs out slamming bullets of percussive action while Saft builds thick distorted worlds of sounds fitting for warfare. Pride's intermittent vocals are bizarre interventions, cross-talk in the chaos, that work to punctuate (or puncture) the incessant drive of these pieces. The pair are joined by Yoshiko O'Hara (Bloody Panda) on vocals and Jonathan Moritz (Evil Eye and Trio Cavaet) on sax for the track "bluezz." Insanely thick and disturbing music.
