ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE gibt es schon seit 25 Jahren, der Namenszusatz & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. ist allerdings erst 2016 hinzugekommen, als die Band sich neu formierte, damit begann ihre Klassiker neu aufzunehmen und um die Welt zu touren. Mit ‘Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe’ kehren sie zum Riot Season Label zurück. 3 altbekannte Longtracks schmücken das neue Album, die CD kommt mit einer Coverversion von GONGs "Flying Teapot" als Bonus!
‘Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe’ sees the band return to their old label Riot Season for the first time since 2012’s 'IAO Chant From The Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out' (CD still available). Both label and band have gone on some wonderful journeys during that time apart but both felt the stars were finally correctly realigned to renew their partnership in all things weird.
Long time AMT fans will immediately recognise some of the song titles listed on the album sleeve here. But the songs themselves have been reworked and transformed far away from their original versions. New boy Jyonson Tsu's quiet, almost whispered vocals bring a whole new aura to proceedings, despite the familiar riffs hidden in the depths below them. It's so laid back in places it's practically horizontal, with only occasional trademark piercing guitar squeals threatening to destroy the peace and calm. The whole of side two is taken up with the twenty minute epic 'Black Summer Song' .. and if this is an indicator to where the AMT mothership is heading going forwards we're all in for another fucked up and magical ride.
If you stepped off the AMT ride over the years, possibly overwhelmed by the amount of releases they were once firing out ... it could be time to step back on it and check out where they're currently at. In a world that's more messed up than ever, we could all use a little break away from the norm, and nobody takes you as far away from the norm as possible as Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
The CD version comes with a sixteen minute bonus song, a cover of Gong's 'Flying Teapot' which has never previously appeared on CD.
