The Psychic Paramount - Gamelan Into The Mink Supernatural

I'm not sure how this one slipped past me, but after listening to Gamelan Into The Mink Supernatural, I can say with confidence that it would have cracked my top 5 for 2005 had I heard it when it was initially released. The Psychic Paramount are fucking LOUD, and that is in no way an understatement. The band's sound is quite difficult to describe. Essentially they create a huge distorted wall of sound with manic drumming and endless looping guitars. The end product is pretty jaw dropping considering these guys are only a trio. I suppose you could say this album is what it would sound like if you were front row for a Can concert circa 1972 and a 747 crashed into the venue while the band continued to play. If you're a fan of groups like Comets On Fire and Acid Mothers Temple, don't hesitate and download this record immediately.
