Before I got my hands on this piece of plastic I only knew Promon from the competion winners CD “Psychedelic Sparks”… But now they have chuncked out a whole CD filled with crazy-ass sounds deep from the Swedish forrests…

A brief description of each track.

#1 Short intro-track to get you in the mood for

#2 Woow! This track is good from the first second… This has got to be one of the coolest track-introes this year… The track itself is more average, but still very psychedelic… You can just hear the sound of the Swedish forrest-elfs running around in this track… Nice! ;o)

#3 This one is very trippy… Packed with Terrence McKenna “LSD…Psychedelic” samples which floats on top of a tiiiight, twisted beat and crazy sounds…

#4 Alright, now things are getting REALLY sick ’n’ twisted… Bizarre even! Throughout the track there is a sample of a kiddies-choir singing “It’s a mushroom, it’s a fungus… And it’s growing all around us and among us!”. You can tolerate it when the kids are singing it, but when the Promon-guys themselves launch into singing it’s downright awfull. Aaarhg… Make it stop! Well, if this track wasn’t as good as it is, the awful singing would have ruined it… But I can cope with to long-haired Swedish dudes singing a bit I guess! Also, the melody and well-fitted bleeps and beeps make up for it! ;o)

#5 Great track. Once again riddled with crazy samples… This time they emphasize a lot on the words strange and weird… This is a very dark track with lots of hard-hitting acid-sounds… What a Weird-Sick-Twisted [!] track… In a good way! Nice indeed!

#6 Another crazy-ass tune filled with all sorts of sick sounds… This could just as well be a Finnish track. It has the same level of madness… I like it! ;o)

#7 Woow… Another great intro… This time even scarier… I almost wet myself when listening to this at a high volume… This is a more minimal track with a few melodies thrown in at the middle, but the crazy forrest flavour is still intact… This could be early Delta-material…Good!

#8 An equally dark intro here, though a tad weaker than the one before… This track is also not as melodic, but slowly develoups into a deeeeep stomper…

#9 The last full-length track is the well-known Throbbing Hobbits from Psychedelic Sparks… It’s not among the best tracks on this CD but it really shows how the Promon-sound have evolved … It has a tribal-touch to it and those twirling sounds are fitted perfectly… I guess we all know the sample “..If an atom could change itself why couldn’t man change an atom?”… Nice track!

#10 before hitting eject on your CD-player after listening to this album, you need to clear your mind and prepare for the real world around you, and therefore we have track 10… Spooky sounds indeed…

Well, this is a great album, and I recommend it to all lovers of Scandinavian madness… This was conceived deep in the Swedish forrests and Promon have managed to provide us with a soundtrack of those dark woods… Until the next Schlabbaduerst you’ll have all you need here… Extremely good!
