Le Temps Detruit Tout - Lars Bjørn - 3 stars

Le Temps Detruit Tout

Le Temps Detruit Tout
(Heaven And Hell Records - 2012)

There are tons of good music around, and there are new releases that goes in a tempo and attitude so slow that the listeners are lucky if they can stay awake during the whole and full album. The Reticent is a one man band made by Chris Hathcock from North Carolina, and he has made a new album which can best be described as slow stoner rock. Drums and guitars are interrupting each other on this album, and the worst part is, that Hathcock makes strange songs, jungle music, and on the song Nihil Ex Nihilo he is speaking endlessly about galaxies and outer space. Another song, Le Tenia is guitar-wise almost a copy of the intro to Dio's song The Last In Line. As the last song of the album Hathcock makes a slow, slow cover version of the old R.E.M. hit Losing My Religion, and I would go as far to say that Losing My Religion is the best song on this CD.
