Acid Mothers Temple return with an expanded Melting Paraiso U.F.O. line up featuring the added guitar skills of Japan underground legend and new full time member Tabata Mitsuru (Boredoms, Zeni Gava, Leningrad Blues Machine etc)
‘IAO Chant From The Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out‘ finds the band revisiting the past and once again taking Gong’s infamous ‘Om Riff/Master Builder’ to soaring new heights. This is a completely new studio version recorded in a new Japan, one that’s still coming to terms with recent catastrophic events.
Split into two almost equal parts, ‘OM Riff From The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. Parts 1 & 2‘, this is the sound of a reinvigorated Acid Mothers Temple playing some of their most up-tempo and groove based music for some time. The laid back nature of last years acclaimed ‘The Ripper At The Heaven’s Gates Of Dark‘ opus is put firmly aside in favour of some heads down riff heavy freak-outs. Taking the original classic work as it’s backbone, and stretching it out to new highs and taking on an almost Krautrock sense of repetition and sonic attack. This is definitely more akin to the much loved Acid Mothers Temple live sound, and should appeal not only to long time converts but pot headed pixies and new kids rediscovering what guitar based music is all about too. File under Acid Mothers Temple, Gong, Krautrock, Psychedelia, etc etc
‘IAO Chant From The Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out‘ will be released worldwide by Riot Season on 19th November 2012 on CD packaged in Gatefold Card Sleeve (first edition only) and Vinyl limited to 500 copies which will be pressed on suitably swanky coloured wax.
