Liblikas – Wooden Spaceship

Liblikas – Wooden Spaceship
Self-Released – 2013
Prog, Psychedelic, Metal, Stoner
Rated: ****

Lo!  And Liblikas unleashed a chugging, churning and mulching juggernaut of a sound, angelic in consistency, demonic in intensity and almost biblical in scope.  Drums and guitars put in work like pistons fired by the fuel of a thousand goblins, on a narrative track that tells road stories of epic proportions.  Heavy and intense as being trapped in a car crusher, ‘Wooden Spaceships’ is more smothering than abrasive however, and there’s an undeniable, almost folk-like warmth to the record that invites the listener in before dinner is served… But unfortunately, no matter how inviting; you’re still on the menu.  Jazzy arrangements with teeth let you know this Estonian quintet is willing to fight for its meals and nothing comes easy.  That’s just the way they like it.  Can you make it out in one piece?  There’s a really cool concept behind this record, and with Joop’s permission, I’d like to reprint it for you right now:

“[Wooden Spaceship] tells the story of a man who awakes to find himself in our bewildered world, with no recollection of his past, trying desperately to get his innocent and unwitting head around the everyday proceedings of a world hell-bent on needless hustle and haste, a world he now finds himself stranded in. Over the course of his journey, he lives through a wide spectrum of emotions never felt before: amazement, insanity, love, panic. Eventually finding it all a little too much to bear, he flies away into the peaceful space.”
