Mystical Communication Service – The Fierce People
Cat-#: BD003 | Formats: Vinyl & Digital | Release date: May 12th 2016
Total runtime: 30:34 | Tracks: 4 | Genre: Psychedelic Rock, Blues Rock, Prog
“The Fierce People” is the third album by the Berlin based psychedelic rock band “Mystical Communication Service”, which revolves around the fictional character Yanez di Mompracem, marking the end of a trilogy of records created within a very productive period for this ever-evolving band. As a centerpiece of this LP, the 15-minute long title track evokes an apocalyptic scenario somewhere between a primeval jungle and modern factory landscapes: “Electric Miles” played with the attitude of Steve Albinis’ “Shellac”.
After “Mystical Communication Service” demonstrated their love for soft psychedelica on their last album “The Marvelous Space Adventures of John Blue”, “The Fierce People” presents itself with heavy weight guitars and rough progressive rock. Composed for a show played as a support to Damo Suzuki (Can), the 15 minute long title track evokes an apocalyptic scenario somewhere between a primeval jungle and modern factory landscapes: “Electric Miles” played with a “Shellac” attitude.
The album was recorded at the studios of Berlin’s heavy rock icons “Kadavar” which clearly shaped the fierceness of “The Fierce People”. The B side is home to two fuzz monsters, but closes this chapter for the band with a peaceful mind: a vinyl version of their first EPs’ title track “Gypsy Spirit”.
