Carpeaux – Black MagicPosted: October 15, 2011
With the godly Carpeaux, I ensured him that I would review his album a while back so here it is:
If anyone were to listen to this album on their first take they would wonder if there was a story book meant for this epic tale. At the same time the guitars have the feel and the sounds from a lot of early Hendrix recordings of Black Magic with some wild flaying around. But at the same time it’s got this nice math rock you would hear out of Tool or Muse (which I’m sure he hates both groups). Overall the album has got a single trance like feel running through the entire album. Almost would be perfect album to listen to drunk in a dark room so then your imagination could build up and listen in depth to the album. The Vocals are dark deep and meaningful but too deep for me.
Best track on the album:
Gilgamesh, fifth king of Uruk: Such a powerful creation that needs to be listened to either live or at 100db minimum. With a power swinging bass line and a flaying guitar, vocals that come from the deep depths of the sea, only a king could deny his rights into a kingdom of soloist’s with this track.
