Ahkmed are a compact three-man group of guitar, bass and drums/vocals who produce a mountainous noise that moves like tectonic plates. distance opens with one of the most basic and plodding of all drum beats, which hardly prepares you for the head-spinning delirium of the psychedelic guitar that gradually insinuates itself into the mix, weaving around the pedestrian rhythm with a skill any guitarist would be proud of.
Essentially a single piece of music comprising endless varied movements, the two minutes at the midway point of ?Soma? encapsulate the Ahkmed ideology of almost tidal rises and falls in the music. That said, almost any two minute section snatched from the hide of distance would produce much the same result ? it?s the patterns and variety that set this album apart.
distance is long, battered, rough and ready ambient doom (a la Jesu, with real drums) bursting into early-Hawkwind-esque wall-of-sound sprays. At various points strewn throughout the hour-long album, there is a grand total of around one and a half minutes of spare vocals topping off the weird moodscapes of backwards sound, over-loaded bass, endless guitar effects and assorted trickery, reverb, echo, drawkcab phasing and lushly imperfect note streams.
Ahkmed?s extraordinary noise sounds as close to deep space musical transmissions being received by radio as it?s possible to get. This is darkest stellar vacuum noise (yeah, I know, it?s a tautology) rather than the open desert soundscapes that Ahkmed?s origins imply? and I love it. distance is highly traditional in instrumentation but radical in tone. Bloody marvellous.
Farflung - A Wound in Eternity
Unborn Planet (4:32)
Endless Drifting Wreck (6:44)
Like It Has Never Been (5:04)
Stella Volo (5:31)
Silver Shrooms (5:25)
This is one of the most monstrous Farflung albums to date. “Unborn Planet” opens the set and is a space rock 'n roller that recalls the first Farflung album, 25,000 Feet Per Second. We’ve got killer molten guitars and space electronics and the trademark Grenas vocals. This leads directly into “Endless Drifting Wreck”, one of my favorite tracks on the album. It rocks hard throughout, but also eases the pace at times for some dreamier floating segments, only to peak out for a high intensity finale. “Like It Has Never Been” features a mixture of electronics, a steady rhythmic pace and a bluesy space-slide guitar that sounds great. The music trips along for a while until launching into yet another classic Farflung sonic meltdown. “Stella Volo” is another rock 'n rolling song, with multiple amazing freaked out space guitars that jam away, and a cool tribal segment. “Ix” is a little different. It’s as deep space as anything on the album, but has a dark and menacing vibe, plus an almost orchestral foundation that gives a very full sound and added intensity to the music. “Silver Shrooms” has been around for a while though never officially released. Give it a listen on the band’s Myspace site for a nice teaser taste of the album. “Invincible” is another one of my favorites, starting off as a space-prog rocker, but later taking off into a mercury bursting manic space metallic rocking blast. This sucker will leave you battered and bruised. And “Precognition” features more high powered metal and prog fueled space rock that brings the album to a close.
Wow, if had you to choose one album to play for someone that didn’t know what space rock is this would be a hell of a good choice. Outstanding musicianship, tight as a knot band, excellent songwriting and production. I sure hope someone picks this up and releases it soon.
