Ready for drones, doomy jazz, dark atmospheres and female demons from the underworld? The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation (a.k.a. The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, for thos of you who haven't been listening) is promising this and much more with their forthcoming "Succubus" CD, which will be released on Ad Noiseam in late Spring / early Summer 2009.
Recorded during a jam session in early 2009, "Succubus" is freely inspired by Jess Franco's 1968 movie of the same title. This album will be presented live again on March 28th at Patronaat in Haarlem, 2008 (more information here). And scroll below for a trailer to this session.
While The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble are hard working on their upcoming full length album on Ad Noiseam (slightly postponed for a late summer / early Autumn released, and at the moment bearing the working titles "Here Be Dragons"), praises keep on coming in for their very recent "Mutations EP" (adn105), out now on CD, LP and digital:
-from Popmatters: "The production is that much more spooky, rich, and atmospheric, and the song structure that much more purposeful and realized. It seems they have struck a perfect symmetry in the studio as a group, feeding off one another and performing cohesively. There is not a wasted moment to be heard."
-from Earlabs: "a deep emotional work, demonstrating how the meeting of acoustic and electronic sounds in the best moments can end up in atmospheres of otherwordly beauty."
Scans of print from Germany's De:Bug and France's Nuke are below after the break.
Hint hint: The Teknoist's label, Ninja Columbo, has a new website online over at ninjacolumbo.co.uk . Head on there for more information about everybody's favorite gabber / d'n'b madman and his label's output, or for just plain old zombie loving.
