9 Dead Alive
Reviewed by BravoMarco
Acoustic guitar maestros from Mexico, taking this art form to completely new levels. The raw energy that they produce can take your breath away at times. From slow sensual moods to an almost punky feel – This release has it all.
Flamenco meets Neofolk (nearly)… & everyone is happy.
All instrumentals apart from 3 (sampled voices) 9 (musicians having a chat)
Play All – In Particular 1,3,6,8 & 9
1) The Soundmaker (4.53) Gloriously rousing opener. At times this is foot tapping, head nodding perfection.
2) Torito (5.03) A little busy at times – Although the rockabilly moments make up for it.
3) Sunday Neurosis (5.16) Background speech, under slow strumming – Atmospheric broodiness. 1st minute is the up tempo intro piece.
4) Misty Moses (4.39) Stirring stuff with a driving beat.
5) Somnium (3:43) Following in the same direction as the others really. Not as inspiring.
6) Fram (4.31) Splendid tune – Brings a smile to you face.
7) Megalopolis (5.01) Slowing it down, film score like that feels a bit wishy-washy at first.
8) The Russian Messenger (4.53) Strong percussion based with hard working guitars.
9) La Salle Des Pas Perdus (3.02) Bright & very breezy.
