Description

One of the most sought after Zoviet releases……

:Z*O*V*I*E*T * F*R*A*N*C*E: 

S*H*A*D*O*W*,**T*H*I*E*F**O*F**T*H*E**S*U*

VERY RARE 1990 CD DOVe CD66 (Death of vinyl) CANADA 

 

It's been well over 25 years since Zoviet France debuted. Disbanded now, the music, still commands respect  To me, they are the Picaso of experimental music. Not easily understood, their sounds,                                                                         blazing from a location, like an abstract painting, evoking thoughts to understand its beauty.                                                                                                 You have a sense that its beautiful, but don't know why. 

Hypnotic and mesmerizing, this Cd should come with a disclaimer that it shouldn't be listened to while driving or operating heavy machinery

 

Released just before a four-year layoff, Shadow, Thief of the Sun is both one of :zoviet*france:'s better releases as well as one of its rarer albums (the label it was on, Death of Vinyl, had limited distribution and eventually went out of business). 

While :zoviet*france: often wanders out into fairly random soundscapes, most of the material here is grounded by a drone of some sort, with atmospheric chanting and other instrumentation designed to complement the drone. The drones aren't particularly heavy-handed, and sometimes it even threatens to float away altogether, as on the 20-minute-plus "Come Infinite," which knits together the delicate threads of scattered percussion and woodwinds. About the hardest edge here is the percussion-heavy "Cahi-Yn-Yan," but even that percussion has so much echo that it seems almost gentle, too. It's not as if stuff like this hasn't been done before — indeed, in places it's very reminiscent of early Kraftwerk or Tangerine Dream. 

About the only real complaint that you could aim against Shadow, Thief of the Sun is that it runs over an hour, thanks to the many lengthy tracks here, but for those who love industrial drones, that just means there's that much more material to submerge yourself into. Definitely recommended. 

 

All tracks composed by Robin Storey, produced by Ben Ponton & Robin Storey
