Album Review...Seven That Spells - Superautobahn

Croatian Psych rockers Seven That Spells album  Superautobahn has been re-released by German Label Sulatron Records on Heavy Black wax and limited to 500 pressed.
Released 3 years ago this monster of an album features only 3 tracks, 3 long, very heavy pounding slabs of beat driven monsters. All of the tracks here follow the same pattern of  fast moving drums accompanied an by ever building noise of guitars that scream along. Opening track  The Wall displays perfectly what's on offer here, a wall of noise, high heavy sonic sounds breaking briefly at its center before pushing on hard, heavy and measured. Second track The Pyramid starts off  with a Jazz sound before very quickly morphing into a rhythmic trance inducing pulse of guitar noise and more driving beats taking its time to move ever forward to its white noise conclusion. However it's album closer The Colossus that stands out, playing at just under 22 minutes it's hard to believe the sheer size of this as the sonic guitar, weird brass and quiet vocals
Pulse hypnotically and noisily on and on  until all that's left is a quiet breeze. There's a clear appreciation for Krautrock here and with the psychedelic rock sound the two marry perfectly, Niko Potocnjak has recorded an engaging and exciting listen not least in part to contributions by Acid Mothers Temple's Kawabata Makoto, This is highly recommended stuff, but grab one on vinyl now, they won't be there much longer.
