3 stars Michael Zucker produces a lot of music stuff, put together on multiple albums. If you're up for this, really time consuming to explore, when jumping around on his bandcamp site. I started with some recent tunes and immediately got caught by this EP. Sometimes he produces at his own risk, sometimes collaborating with other musicians. On this occasion it's more a Michael Zucker Band, a trio including Pavlo Krokidis on bass and then drummer David Solis. A weird album title, isn't it? But, as quite obvious, the songs are about various diseases, so let it be. Thematical themes or concepts are mostly accessory, the music may tell the real story however.

I would specify this one avantgarde tinged heavy psych somehow, presented in a partially agressive outfit, just take the vocals for example. Guitars are multi-tracked, soaring, the other instruments more than needful attachments in fact. Speaking of lively drums and a punchy bass. The brilliant Broken Hourglass came to my attention especially, finally challenged me to write this short review. This one differs a little, not only concerning the title, but also when it comes to the flow in general. More melancholic and empathic, makes my day. The Michael Zucker music collection is definitely worth a check - 3.5 stars finally.
