    Zeuhl: Magma and others

    Okay outside of Magma, I've been told that the following are essential...

    • Eider Stellaire - 1st
    • Eskaton - 4 Visions
    • One Shot - Ewaz Vader
    • Weidorje - s/t
    • Zao - Z=7L


    I already own Weidorje, which is awesome, and I just received Ewaz Vader, which seems pretty sweet. (I'll post more on that as I get used to it.) I pretty much aim to get the rest by the new year.

    My recent faves don't come from this list, but they are Setna's Cycle I and Xing Sa's Création de L'univers. I'm stoked to hear the Setna follow up is planned for January.

    I recently bought the Corima debut too, which is growing on me, but has made it clear that I'm not ready for the harder, faster Japanese stuff.

    I'm tempted to cycle back around to Magma and buy the Live in Japan release so I can finally wrap my ears around "K.A." But these explorations into these other bands are proving too rewarding to stop.

    I'm sure you know Univers Zero and Present ... they seem rather Zeuhl to me. Also, Dun is fantastic. Highly recommended. I don't know any of the bands you've mentioned, so there's more for me to discover, too.
    Check out Colouratura's sophomore release Unfamiliar Skies - out this spring on Melodic Revolution Records!

    I wouldn't count Univers Zero or Present as Zeuhl as I think they are more Dark Chamber Rock or Avant Progressive, they do have some Zeuhlish elements.

    If you want to explore another couple of good dark Zeuhl bands check out Shub Niggurath - Les Mort Vonts Vite, and Archaia - s/t.

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    Well, this is the vid that got me started on Setna and a larger Zeuhl kick this autumn...

    I've been getting big into early Ruins - the Ruins III/Stonehenge/Burning Stone era. Stonehenge is so much better when you just lop off the bonus tracks and listen to Infect instead (from which they all come) because 70 minutes of them can be tough to take at once! But they are as Zuehl as it gets!

    1st two UZ albums?
    Present's Rev de Fer (or most of No 6 and High Infidelity)?

    Pretty zeuhl. Not copy-cat zeuhl, but def. strong zeuhl influences.

    Oh I agree, I said zeuhlish elements you say strong zeuhl influence, I think we're in basically the same ballpark.

    Yes, Setna is great. Also Rialzu, awesome obscure album from a band from Corsica!

    Great! Looking forward to it.

    Eskaton and Zao are certainly must haves and I'd also recommend a band I recently discovered, Ga'an.

    I put in the order for 4 Visions so I assume I'll get it next week.

    Two more to go.

    Guapo are certainly worth checking out. Black Oni is superb IMO.

    Does it matter that this waste of time is what makes a life for you?

    Too me, Zeuhl is "magma-ish".

    That's a fine album (all three I've heard are) but for me Black Oni is best: it's tighter and more intense.

    I just received 4 Visions in the mail. I'm ripping it in as I type...

    There is a One Shot show recently posted on Dime.

    Abus Dangeroux - Le Quatrieme Mouvement

    Zeuhl fusion.

    Corima - Quetzacaotl

    New band from Los Angeles is Zeuhl heaven.

    Just picked up these two in the last month and both are highly recommended.

    I've spun it a few times already, and I'm digging it. It's a bit busy, but that just means I need to give it a few more spins so my mind can acclimate to the structure of the music. (The same thing is going on with the Corima disc, though 4 Visions appears to be somewhat more accessible to me.) Even at first listen, I could tell that this was the "real stuff." The folks went for it, and didn't fold in any bullshit. It sounds like its from another planet.

    I love that little synth riff at the beginning of "Attente." And they do take the time to work out some serious grooves (albeit not as much as Weidorje, but then that's what Weidorje did). I've focused on the four tracks of the original album, and have given the bonus track only a cursory listen. I figure I'll get to them once I've digested the original work.
