Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand - The Cosmic Trigger

More cerebral dark rock from Albin Julius and company, otherwise known as Der Blutharsch and the Infinte Church Of The Leading Hand, with The Cosmic Trigger on Julius' own WKN. Dense, melodramatic, haunting. Shades of the militaristc marching music from the earlier days of the project are buried deep under layers of psychedelic haze. Theatrical and tense, absolutely everything about this, including the exaggerated, lounge-y vocal feels alive and incredibly authentic. Hallucinatory and intense rock for celebrating the end times. Everything happening outside of the tape scene has no interest for me, with a few exceptions, the past two DB recordings being prime examples.

Can't find an edition size listed anywhere, which I assume means it's a massive pressing. Black vinyl, tip-on jacket stamped with blue foil. Includes a CD of remixes by Geoffroy D. of Derniere Volonte, which are absolutely fantastic. Grab at Tesco.
