HAIKAI NO KU
OCTOPODA MONOLITH TAPE
Second tape on At War from this great Newcastle trio. Since the first demo I put out over a year ago, HNK have released a full-length CD and an LP on Burning World.
This tape sees HNK away from "album" mode, being a totally free-form 30 minute plus death dirge jam. It builds up to an intense high (pun intended) at the 16 minute mark, floating in clouds of Hashishian vapour before plummeting toward the riff-filled land prophesied in "Jerusalem" years before.
While the heady influence of Fushitsusha is most certainly at the forefront, Mike Vest is still calling the shots here and there's more in common on this record with his day job with cosmic stoner warlords BONG that on any Haikai record before. One of my favourite bands going around right now, hopefully we'll be having more to come from these guys soon!
