It has been two years now since D-A-R-K Records released a two track digital EP by this demented duo, consisting of Wille Waldemar Hermansson and Jarno Elias Wallasvaara, entitled Pharaos Phart, while Wille W. Hermansson raised one too many eyebrows last year with his Astroschnautzer debut album on Space Boogie Productions. That same label now brings us a full lenghth album by these suomi freaks!

I won't do an in depth track by track review as it has already been sort of done in the artist/label promotion sub forum, but it's not even that necessary to break things down here. Bottom line is that Lost in luxor is right up my alley, tickling my spot in just about any imaginable way! Despite the funny as hell, and thus very conspicious, cover art and some pretty goofy track titles, there is nothing looney about the music. This is just great, eleven relentless tracks moving at supersonic speed and spanning over almost 78 minutes of time is about as good as it gets.

All tracks, and I do mean each and every one, are loaded with high octane energy, while sick 'n' demented sounds protrude from all over the place, dribbling out of the speaker and drilling their way to the core of your head. The thing to keep in mind here is that this is *not* an album which is set to rediscover tap water, its main focus is aimed at keeping the crazy dancers four feet above sea level at any given time. There isn't much, if any diversity here as well, but what you do get is a massive onslaught of constantly accelerating audio wizardry, shifting and morphing FX, raw, bulldozer like party music which leaves no time for breaks and/or pauses. In fact, with the exception of A Bulk Of Hulks, no other track uses samples or vocal snippets of any kind.

It's bound to set you on a roller coaster of a journey during the most intense part of the night. Dark, mental, twisted, uncompromising, groovy all the way through and cerebral full on psy trance from Finland which deserves to be exposed and heard. Play it loud. Dance to it hard.

There's an acute instinct for detail these guys are obviously very well acquainted with, as each track provides quite a few particular and erratic sound patterns, with pretty unconventional arrangements of intractable layers, enabling the album to successfully dodge being pinned to the frequently emblematic and standardized niche of similar releases.

Fans of hard as nails full on music and always dissimilar suomi sound, as well as fans/DJs of acoustic insanity should be on home ground with this top of the line party psy trance which never ventures far too deep in the realm of darkness, avoids stereotypes and steers clear of cheesy elements, and still not detaching itself from the constantly present psychadelia factor.

Uncontrollable dance floor mayhem guaranteed.

yeah, a mad album for the trancefloors! hardly anything that new or exiting for homelisteners but in a party this will shred everything into tiny pieces! :posford:

 

and for the "artwork", i like it, it's great, and it seems it's made by gayface :lol:

My God... :wacko:

 

Dark is not my cup of coca-cola but this is something different. It has to be because of that slight sub-suomi feeling, if i could say that. :unsure:

Anyway "Lost in Luxor" needs more listens from my side.

Tracks i really liked are: #02 Lost in luxor (07:58)+#05 My mummy is a mummy (06:43)+#07 Jesus vs shitler (07:48)+#08 Nymphomaniac nefertiti (05:50)(absolutely gorgeous deep samples used in this track and fabulous name by the way :lol: )+#11 Tutankhamon 10000 (06:42)

Others i just can't get into, definately i need more listens.

Excellent dark psy album IMHO...not the regular scratches or russian hardcore sound..this one is groovy and crazy...Astroschnautzer's debut was one of my fav album last yr..he has impressed again with this one this year..best groovy dark sounds...but the title and cover art are bit wacky .

Ever heard of Google? Or Wikipedia? :P

 

"Luxor (Arabic: الأقصر ) is a city in Upper (southern) Egypt and the capital of Luxor Governorate." "As the site of the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes, Luxor has frequently been characterised as the "world's greatest open air museum", the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor standing within the modern city."

I was curious because one Sci-Fi writer used name Luxor for reality generated by computer where the prisoners were sent. Once their mind been extracted to the digital forms they enter the luxor in two forms either as soldier or as a scientist, Computer simulated world after the 3.WW which went nuclear of course and Luxor was the last survival base of humanity made from tons of concrete. Base was attacking by huge worms which put remaining mankind to pressure and they fought with weapons (soldiers) and with technology (scientists)...and thx to time dilatation (1 month on Earth=10 years in Luxor) the earth scientis were ebale to extract technology inovation from Luxor......Sorry for Offtopic

 

As for album, proof that chaos can be organized, good shit

Old songs are better.8/10

Have to check their older work then....

 

As for this piece. It's still most played album from 2008. Funny I never looked at this stuff as a dark psy. While the average Dark-psy is full of randomness, structure here is carefully guarded and never fly away... st. like harmonized disarray.
