Voice of The Seven Thunders – Voice of The Seven Thunders

Voice of The Seven Thunders – Voice of The Seven Thunders
Tchantinler recordings / Twisted Nerve – 2010
Waardering: ****

Voice of The Seven Thunders is the new name under which English Rick Tomlinsen’s magical freak and fruts is sent out into the big wide world. Apparently Voice of The Seven Woods was no longer the right word for the musical content; and he surely has a point there. The new record is even more prone to experimentation and definitely less folk oriented. It’s electrified! It rocks and it shaves! It reminds of Popol Vuh and Amon Düül II; who decided to delve even more into the Arabic, Egyptian and Indian musical influences which are used by bands like Woven Hand. Other worldly influences are also constantly lurking around the corner. Like a true sound-artist he sculpts his intriguing structures, which grab you by the neck-hairs and drag you with them through the seventies and never drown in artsy fartsy posturing. And whether the songs drag themselves along like dead animals or run like coyote’s on speed; it all sounds damn tasty!!
