(Resipiscent - RSPT045) 2xLP $26.00
A saga that began four albums and five comic books ago -- with a fat stub of flesh burrowing beneath the grass to uncover hex givers, beepers, and the severed heads of sisters -- draws to its epic conclusion deep within The Maze: once a war sanctuary, then a home, now a bio-mechanized sarcophagus, and the only way out is up. Though this story is crushing, the resulting shards dance, creak and spill into a psychic underground vast enough for cymbal, cello, tuba, storms, timpani, piano, guitar, foghorn, harmonica, double reeds, trumpet, Sylvester Stallone vocals, and synth that makes Pink Floyd blush. Sheck’s sound is singular, unmistakable: sleep talking, skidding drums, 64th note woodwinds at full tilt, cult chorales, resplendent horns, and escape-velocity dance anthems. Includes free download. Edition of 300.
