You know how sometimes you listen to an album for the first time and you keep saying “hell yes” every few minutes?
I am sure you do that once in a while, when the music is just too good to remain silent.
I’ve just spent almost an hour doing that. OK. I played some songs more than once, so I’ve just spent more than an hour sitting on the floor, listening to Merkabah and saying “hell yes” every few minutes. Because their music is so damn good.
Merkabah is an absolutely brilliant band from Warsaw, Poland. Their sound is an explosive combination of noise rock, math rock, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, and jazz. The band dwells heavily on rhythmic complexity and overall intensity of the sound. There is a great sense of physicality in their music that manifests itself through continuous high energy and dense compositions.
Merkabah’s latest album Moloch is an apocalyptic tale of immense obscurity. It is a challenging and rewarding effort that will leave you feeling moved and perhaps disturbed, in the best way possible.
If you are a fan of loud and complex music, you will love Merkabah.
