Acid Mothers Temple & The Cosmic Inferno - Ominous From The Cosmic Inferno
A new Acid Mother's release is always a cause for excitement and a test of stamina. Easily one of the most consistently inventive psych bands, AMT provide trippy drone and berserk guitar freakouts with no sign of running out of ideas for both. In their latest incarnation as AMT and the Cosmic Inferno, "Ominous From The Cosmic Inferno" features a short set (six tracks) of really long space jams, a couple checking in at just under 20 minutes.
Makoto Kawabata and friends assault the ears and inspire the soul; taking a cheese-grater to your brain is as good a path to Nirvana as any, no? Kawabata's guitar majesty is most evident on "Nipples in the dream woods" and "Dark Side of the Apocalypse," as well as toward the end of Ecstasy in Hell."
Limited to 1000 copies, the initial pressing comes in the form of a mini-vinyl release, with gatefold and even a pop-up of the band. But while taking its cues from the heavy hitters of the Seventies, Acid Mothers Temple is never less that forward thinking, and, musically, always aiming for Beyond.
