Haiku Funeral - Assassination in the Hashish Cathedral
(Hikikomori Records HRCDR006)
From Aural Innovations April 2010 update
This is a strange, dark journey and features Bulgarian Dimitar Dimitrov (Glades of Gloom, Corpus Diavolis, and Unhealthy Dreams) on electronics, vocals and spring drum) and American, William Kopecky (Kopecky, Yeti Rain, Far Corner, Snarling Adjective Convention) on bass, vocals, spring drum and children’s harp. The CD features 9 experimental tracks in 53 minutes and was recorded in Marseille, France on Halloween 2008. This CD is limited to 50 copies and comes in a half DVD case with all the lyrics. On the web page it is described as mental distorted drug hallucinations! It has an amazing sound and could easily go into some scary movies. This is pretty far out but also creative stuff.
