Scherzoo - 04 (2018)
The fourth album from this French band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of mellotron, electric piano, organ, drums and bass.
This French zeuhl band is back again with their fourth offering.
I have reviewed their first two albums in # 1 of this blog. I have yet to get hold of their third album and will try to get that album sometimes soon.
The band's take on zeuhl is minimalism first and foremost. The band makes a lot of sound. But the music is not as grand and big as Magma and other zeuhl bands.
I have always compared this band to the likes of Present and will do it again. There is some very vicious dark tones in their music. Brooding, doomy music.
The music on this forty-five minutes long album still works and there is a lot of very interesting details here. The bass for example.
This is not music for everyone. This is music for the few. But it is a rewarding experience, this album.
There is no great pieces of music here. The overall quality is good though and I like this album a lot. So check it out.
