The Meads of Asphodel (U.K.): “Sonderkommando” (Candlelight Records)

The Meads of Asphodel (U.K.): “Sonderkommando” (Candlelight Records)
For as long as I can remember, this band has always been weird and experimental. They show that they can write catchy stuff, with almost pop or punk sensibilities, if they wanted, but they prefer to throw themselves into the eye of the storm of the weird. It sounds that for the black metal punk Pink Floyd moments they have tons of guests. It also sounds like they have spent lots of time into this project. It is 1 hour and 10 minutes long.
It is extremely vulgar, and also beautiful; poppy at times, demented at others. Approach only and only if you like the very weird side of metal: at times they sound like geniuses, and other times they sound like a bunch of street punks who in their fantasy dreams wish they could writes those classic concept albums like Pink Floyd and the Beatles; but alas, they are a bunch of black metal punks, and they can’t help but make quality fuglyeautiful sounds.
