Guitarist Brandon Seabrook's pre-apocalyptic summit, oozing centuries of purloined caterwauls, Die Trommel Fatale is a poly-rhythmic exploration of the dark side of the drum, layering cello, bass, electronics, voice and guitar against dichotomous drummers. In part inspired by the Peruvian jungle, feature string drones and ghostly vocals evoking ancient shamanic landscapes designed to eviscerate the listener. In discarding the use of cymbals, Die Trommel Fatale melds the primal propulsion of the drums with tight ensemble passages and solo experimentations. Cinematic landscapes emerge from a bone shaking fusion of drums, guitar and guttural shrieks."
