CATEGORY: HEAVY ROCK | DURATION: 42 MINUTES
Heavy rock gets an extreme Japanese revisioning in Satori, a 5-part, 42-minute opus which commences with one of the most blood-curdling screams ever committed to vinyl. After that, Flower Travellin’ Band explore a soundscape of the Seven Hells with the heaviest, most grinding guitar assault outside Black Sabbath, riven by repetitive Orientalist tropes and marked by Sabbath-like tempo changes. Satori is a trip into enlightenment through the demonic medium of amplified electric sound, with all the terrors, mysteries and ecstasies which that implies.
