Painkiller - The Prophecy (Tzadik USA 2013)

Another John Zorn arrival

The second Zorn release from November, a live Painkiller recording from several concerts in europe in 2004-5. Selections edited into one 65 minute long suit of mindblowing proportions. Zorn and Laswell are impressive as usual but the Japanese Drummer is brilliant and his solos are excellent. Not so much of the Hardcore stuff like their first albums but plenty of more atmospheric and dubby improvisations with plenty of great Zorn Sax. A well put together suit and an enjoyable if not taxing listen.Rating 4/5.
