Ten Stars Ten Horns
short history lesson to begin with. Christopher Walton and Stephen Pennick
once recorded as Endvra. They released 6 superb and essential dark ambient
works. These recordings are increasingly difficult to find but any music
fan worth their salt should have them all in their collection. Mr Pennick
went onto release recordings as Ontario Blue and Mr Walton seemed to have
completely disappeared off the music map. Until now.
The music of TenHornedBeast
is a million miles away from the work of Endvra but that’s not to
say it won’t appeal to die-hards of his old band. Using drums, bass
and guitars "Ten Stars - Ten Horns" is a sludge / drone / gloom
masturbatory wankfest. Fucking magic in other words. Forget all preconceptions
you may harbour at music produced by these basic instruments. "Ten
Stars - Ten Horns" touches areas you wouldn’t think possible.
Some tracks are so black ambient in style and execution you wouldn’t
believe it and yet they are so enthralling your breath is literally taken
away. On other tracks the sound of "Cop" era Swans springs to
mind, and they were the dogs bollocks at that time, slow, grinding, pounding
and harsh. TenHornedBeast
rumble and roar over 6 tracks of nerve shredding uplifting music that
I cannot help but admire and enthuse enough over it. The perfect ‘pick
me up’ record for those shitty days in life when you need something
to make you feel alive again.
Play it fucking loud. Play it often. For fuck’s sake just play it.
Immensely satisfying to the nth degree. I believe that there will be a
2 x CD release from this project sometime in the near future. Bring it
on Christopher. Bring it fucking on. Sooner rather than later please.
