Many thanks to Sandro Kaiser for his masterly ratiocination.
“Here we have a look at a new sub-division of My Dance The Skull called Hill Devil Drum and its inaugural release is ‘Erschepzal’ by Sacher-Pelz, which I assume to be Maurizio Bianchi. He worked, before turning out many records as M.B., as such, but I am not entirely sure why he decided to go back to that name. He has five pieces, and track timing on the cover doesn’t add up – more like a piece per side, and these sound more or less like the old music by M.B./Sacher-Pelz. Dark, moody, but industrial, moving heavy blocks of synthesized sounds forward, yet it comes without the usual distortion and feedback on the first side. Feeding back it does through a line of delay machines and throughout Sacher-Pelz places minimal but essential variations in pedals and EQ, and creates beautiful dark apocalyptic soundscapes – 1984 has yet to come. The b-side is cruder and louder, and does have indeed flying bits of feedback tossed around, and is alike musique concrete gone entirely wrong. I have no idea if this was recorded recently – the cover say ‘captured between the end of 6030 A.M. and the beginning of 6031 A.M.’, but who knows what that means – or in fact 1979 as part of his early roots, but it sounds great, so I was thinking. ” Frans De Waard / Vital Weekly
