La Morte Young – La Morte Young EPPosted: December 22, 2014
Following the excellent and haunting debut album from 2013, the French primordial molten drone riff lords La Morte Young return with a self-titled EP album released on Death Carnival Records. While the opening shortie “Whisper of Dharma 3” suggests a continuation of the post-human amplified noise, it’s quieter and more nuanced, even though it’s still as improvised and structureless and version 1 and 2. The following “When Angels Speak of Love” sees La Morte Young at their most organized to date, throwing a simple drum pattern in the vein of Les Rallizes Dénudés but without the overdriven Mizutani guitar, this time replace with a lush, almost shoegaze sensitiivity. Suddenly, these barbaric orcs show their softer side. Intriguing.
