Album Notes
Octopus seem to be getting even more complex, bringing ZERO HOUR to mind at times.This is an almost 24 minute EP of four songs. In the liner notes they thank CAST and TRETTIORIGA KRIGET.They also include 87 pages of instrumental music notes,so those who are brave enough can try this at home. Good luck with that.
"Slussen" comes out of the gate hard and fast. Absolutely ripping guitar a minute in as the band rampage all over the place.This is complex and heavy duty just like ZERO HOUR. Spoken word samples arrive 4 1/2 minutes in. "Zeitgeist" again makes me think that these guys have taken the complexity level up a notch over their last record "Bonsai".There are some guest screaming vocals before 1 1/2 minutes. Vocal samples 4 minutes in that continue to the end that basically rip Christianity. Not impressed. Quotes like "Christianity just is not truth" and "Jesus did not exist" is b.s. in my mind. But hey this is about the music,and the music is excellent.

"VI-I-VII" features face smashing riffs that lighten briefly after a minute. Vocal samples 2 minutes in as riffs and odd-metered drumming continue. A relentless drum attack 4 minutes in. More vocal samples 6 1/2 minutes in as heavy guitar and odd-metered drumming continue. "Momentum Kriget" i'm sure is a reference to their Swedish friends.This is another assault of relentless power. Spoken words after 1 1/2 minutes as drums and guitars ease up before the heaviness returns again.

I like the direction they are headed in. This is very impressive.
