Seven that Spells - Live DVD
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: July 2004
7 that Spells is a wild psychedelic jam band from Croatia. I reviewed their debut CD called The Blowout a few months back. This live DVD was recorded on May 20th, 2004 and captures about 40 minutes of the bands madness. As well as the concert you have biography and contact info, a picture gallery and the complete Blowout CD audio included. The band lives porno as reflected in the topless women on all the menus and the bands song titles. The DVD was shot with 3 cameras (it would appear) and camera audio as well. The guitar is too low in the mix for my tastes but the raw energy of the performance is captured well. The DVD begins with La Viadellic Prositutzione from the Blowout CD and it is a totally wild guitar freakout session. Next up is 69th Door To Venus with some wild guitar torture as the band grooves. These are much more freaked out versions than the CD, which I prefer. Rosies House Of Pleasure has a great groove laid down by the bass and drums for Nikach to play some insane acid wah guitar over the top. Mary’s Sweet Inferno has an extra drummer (female) and synth player joining the group. Now they move more towards some space rock but lacking a bit of control. Bliss My Cosmic Peach is a slower moving spaced out psych fest and perhaps the coolest song of the short performance. Check this cool band out for sure!
