Baal, Mephisto & Diablos - Lords Of Destruction

Artists: Baal, Mephisto & Diablos
Title: Lords Of Destruction
Label: TRIPLAG MUSIC
Format: CD
Released: 26 Sep 2008

Right, we have 3 brave and resourceful Japanese (Mizuki Nishihata,
Kagetoshi Nakamura and Takeomi Matsuura), who personify three of their
projects (Baal, Mephisto and Diablos)... but not the way you'd think
they would. Asian dexterity is evident: the guys separated into 3
groups, 2 in each. I haven't noticed a pronounced distinction between
the music tracks of these virtual teams, however if it works out for
them - we'll accept and support!

Their music bears similarity with the drama of puppet theatre: passing
comical lightness coupled with imminent chaos.

Each track starts as if out of nothing, but then bit by bit a harmonic
sound stream assembles. Synths excite and overwhelm at the same time.
Resembling a bait, they tell you more than you expect to be hear. The
fuss & hiss in high range, which modern day "dark" music is plagued
with, is quite meaningful here. High ranges are maintained for the
whole duration of the tracks, but devoid of soup of annoying glitches,
which could 'turn off' the listener seeking to be delivered from it.
Everything seems legit, details merely emphasize the main drive
'pulling the cart' forward without obstructing the 'wheels'.

Special emphasis is brought to the music by the low range. Japanese
didn't slave the fashion by accentuating the lows, but diversified
them instead. There is plenty of it here - lax or viscous or swinging...
There is not much sense in trying to find a proper adjective to
describe it - easier to put the music on and give it a go.

A lot of attention is given to intros. Dry bass kick at the start
(that is so convenient for mixing but so dull to listen to) is not
always there. It's hidden at times to trigger a natural flow of
metamorphose of sounds.

It's a pity there is no traditional Japanese instruments. It could
enhance the ambiance of the Far Eastern enigma that we're intuitively
aware of. However, random ethnic undertones surface up in kaleidoscope
of synthetic trance patterns, not as themes, but the hints of artists'
origin.

Japanese ability to work hard is well known, but the other side of the
coin is that they break away from it with a full swing... perhaps even
better than Finns or Russians do. Their music reflects the rhythm of
the Empire of the Sun - evolved sharpened automatism, the future, that
comes closer by the day though enormously hard work.

That is how the philosophical context of the album has been revealed to me.

Listen good,

Sincerely yours, Anix Gleo.

awesome compilation love the computer game too!! mephisto and baal are the best for mf runs if anyone knows what I'm talking about!!! and if any psytrancers want to play some diablo III together when it comes out that'd be sick!!

favorite trance necromancer's club, black twisted (!) horn, and terror's end.

Thanks guys for another wonderful japynthm. you're the best!

And thanks triplag. You guys are the best label out there in my own humble opinion. EVERY SINGLE compilation is just sick! and the best twisted music coming out.. and a great label with a great radio that's poppin off everytime I turn it on. KEEP IT COMING TRIPLAG!!!!!!!!!
