Colour Haze - Chopping Machine (1995)
The debut album from this German band.
The band was a trio with a lineup of didgeridoo, bass, guitar, percussion and vocals.
A guest played violin on one track here.
I reviewed their 2012 album She Said years ago and really loved that album. So I decided to get the rest of their albums for a review somewhere down the line. That moment has now arrived and I will review all their albums.....
.... Starting with this album, their debut album.
It has been said that this album is a bit of a one-off album and not so representative for the rest of their career.
It is a debut album after all and most debut albums does not really give many indications about the future albums of a band. This is a good example.
The music here is a mix of space rock and post-punk. There is a lot of harsh vocals on this album and a lot of harsh bass and guitars. There is not many colours here as most of this one hour long album is pretty grim.
The quality is not good at all. It is barely a decent album.... and not even that.
In simple terms, this album lacks most things. Hence my lack of enthusiasm for it.
