Deveykus - Pillar Without Mercy (Tzadik 2013)

Another arrival from Tzadik records.

So many great albums and so little time to get through them all. The Tzadik CDs are arriving thick and fast and this one has been released under the radical jewish culture banner. This is a slow burning monster of a rock album, the tunes move at almost glacial speed with plenty of heavy guitar and a trombone playing along with the guitar melodies or on top of the crunching guitar. Don't usually get to much into these slow spacerock sort of things but this one is very good with some wonderful guitar pyrotechnics and the trombone giving it a slightly different angle. There certainly is plenty of variety in this series and I have yet to be disappointed with any of the Tzadik releases I have acquired so far. Rating 4/5.
