On disc: Taurus

Life - Claudia Ehrhardt - 6 stars


(self-released - 2012)

Taurus is Steve Floyd (Dark Castle) and Ashley Spungin (ex-Purple Rhinestone Eagle) and Life is their first release. They release the 2 tracker with 35 min. running time on their own.

The first track is called Life Part 1 and the first 2+ minutes are just some strange noise, then spoken words set in and a guitar joins. The track is 16 minutes long which means that the duo takes you onto a journey into ambient doom / drone scapes. No easy listening album, it's a challenge! Towards the end the spoken words are back... A kind of mantra... a repetitive passage which also opens up Life Part 2. Partly it's slowed down... like a tape running to slow due to low batteries... Then it gets lost in the guitar and drums... The words add a repetitiveness to a chaotic soundscape. It's a roller coaster ride! It can be tiring, if you aren't in the mood for this experience!

It's tough to give you an idea about what to expect, so I can only recommend to give it a try and see, if you can get into it!

6 stars
