Skepticism - Farmakon
The iciest band of these days is coming back a new time to haunt us with some extreme doom. Recorded already two years ago and following the excellent mini CD "The Process Of Farmakon", "Farmakon" continues in the same vein, with still the same obscure concept, and they seem to be coming back on some way to the traces of "Aes", with very long tracks, close to fifteen minutes.

You will find here the two tracks "The Raven And The Backward Funeral" and "Farmakon Process" is some slightly changed versions (compared to how we knew them). And the four new tracks are simply terrific. Slow as a snail trying to escape your fork, cold to freeze your fingers, and at the same time, beautiful as a blond Russian girl who'd be lying half naked on a bear's skin. Bear whose voice can by the way be heard here as vocals…

But there's no need to tell more about it. You'll have understood it, this is still high class SKEPTICISM, that you must definitely own. (Online August 18, 2003)
