Dai Kaht - Dai Kaht II (2020)
The second album from this band from Finland.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, keyboards, guitars, effects and Kobaian vocals.
The band had help from a choir.
The one and only zeuhl band from Finland is back again with a new helping of zeuhl.
The opening of the album sounds like the band is a Magma copycat. That is the opening of the album....
The music takes a much more manic, super-busy road after the opening track.
The band has their own style and there is even some more than hints of thrash metal and jazz here. But a good reference are the Japanese zeuh scene. Koenjihyakkei is a band that springs to mind.
Not everything here is hyper and there is indeed a lot of Magma references here. There is even some folk music from Finland here.
This band is one of the most original sounding zeuhl bands out there. Ditto for this album which very much pushes the envelope.
This is also a very good album and one all zeuhl fans need to check out.
