Here’s something you don’t hear every day. A theremin album TOTALLY WORTH listening too. The theremin is a rather neglected instrument partially due to its overuse in grade B horror films. But Istanbul-based musician [ Cihan Gülbudak ] recording as [ Meczup ] on " Hanging From The Purgatory’s Pendulum " shows that this instrument can be a thing of beauty. Vital to its success is the way [ Meczup ] plays and loops the instrument into gorgeous arrangements . You do not have to listen farther than the first track, “A Tale For Lancinant Screws” to realize what an exquisite recording this is... For those who are not familiar with the instrument [ Theremin ]. The following article can come very handy. The [ Theremin ] originally known as the aetherphone ~ etherophone, thereminophone[2] or termenvox ~ thereminvox is an early electronic musical instrument controlled without contact from the player. It is named after its Russian inventor, Professor Léon Theremin, who patented the device in 1928. The controlling section usually consists of two metal antennas which sense the position of the player's hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude [ volume ] with the other, so it can be played without being touched. The electric signals from the theremin are amplified and sent to a loudspeaker. The theremin is associated with a very eerie sound, which has led to its use in movie soundtracks such as Miklos Rozsa's for Spellbound and The Lost Weekend and Bernard Herrmann's for The Day the Earth Stood Still and as the theme tune for the ITV drama Midsomer Murders. ~~~~~~~~ ( [ Theremins ] are also used in concert music [ especially avant-garde and 20th ~ 21st-century new music and in popular music genres Rock, Psychedelic Rock bands in particular, such as [ Hawkwind ] who have often used the theremin in their work ). GIVE THIS ALBUM A GO LADS. TOTALLY SHOCKING AND AMAZING ). ~~~~~~~~ Artist - Meczup Album - Hanging From The Purgatorys Pendulum [ * * * * * ] Release Date - 2010 Genre - Instrumental, Drone, Experimental, Film-noir soundtrack [ AMAZING INDEED ] Tracklist 01 A Tale For Lancinant Screws. 02 Kwaidan 03 Garoun A 04 Puriest Morning of All Times 05 Blossoming in Cemetery 06 Shadow-A Parable 07 The Ribald Genie 08 The Bridge of Khazad-dûm -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Meczup - Hanging From The Purgatorys Pendulum -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recommendations: Blackfilm | Tinderstick | Bodof Songs | Isartum | Jefre Cantu-Ledesma --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
