Death Alley - Superbia

Label : Century Media | Archive under stoner

Release type: Full-length CD

Cor : The live registration ‘Live At Roadburn’ has made quite some turns in my stereo and I’m still impressed every time I hear this album by our fellow countrymen Death Alley. After the very well received debut album ‘Black Magic Boogieland’, they release their second studio album ‘Superbia’. The live album could easily be categorized as stoner, because of the Monster Magnet-like parts and the extended psychedelic jam versions, but the studio records are slightly harder to pin-point. This is once more sometimes chaotic, filthy and loud, sometimes freaky psychedelic (also with some more laid-back parts), always cunningly performed, even including some parts in the fusion/prog/kraut direction. At times one can think of King Crimson in terms of freakiness and craftsmanship, but in this case with overwhelming energy from pure punk. Especially the guitar of Oeds Beydals brings some truly great stuff, but also the rest of the band contribute their parts very well. These guys have delivered a very decent piece of work again!
