Orthrelm

OV

Ipecac 64

Released on June 21, 2005

$13.25

Orthrelm is a bizarre beast of a band; one part pummelling endurance, one part prickling electricity. Their music, always played at breakneck speed on guitar and drums only, is an enlivened mix of technical metal and crazed improvisation, put simply they are truly breath-taking.

One of the things i love most about the music of Orthrelm and their guitarist Mick Barr's other bands is that in the majority of their songs and sounds...when it comes on blasting at you in unfathomable speeds and precision - the affect it has upon you is such that it drives you deep into your mind in hypnotized contemplation. And this album takes that occurrence to the furthest extreme.

While most Orthrelm albums have mostly short songs of between 1 to 3 minutes length, this album is one song that's 45 minutes long. And in that 45 minutes they manage to pack 150 albums worth of notes and riffs into a single focused effort of utterly unique crazed fury. For the first 18 minutes of "OV" there's 4 or 5 different riffs that are played over and over and over sinking you deeper into your skull. It's important to note that not only is this album deeply weird and fukd-up but it kicks a profound amount of ass too. I have about dislocated my head from my spine freaking out to this music before.

As with all albums that Mick Barr plays guitar on, this has the most mind-boggling and advanced guitar playing you'll ever come across. You could play guitar for 30 years and never reach this level of playing, its just that great.

The variation of different riffs you'll hear presented on OV will blow your mind. There are parts where the guitar almost sounds like some rebel military personnel on the most crystal meth you could possibly consume without overdosing tapping out the most frantic morse code ever communicated with human hands. Its also important to note that the music on this album never really relents, save for one brief part about 30 to 31 minutes in where the guitar slows down briefly before dropping out completely while the drummer sets up the next section, and when the guitar reappears its as frantic as 173,000 machine guns firing on you all at once.

You would think that with the level of energy and fury being communicated throughout the course of this recording that it would begin to slow down towards the end...but it doesn't. It gets faster and then even faster as it progresses until the final minutes where the guitar literally hits warp speed. An absolutely staggering finish to an album so unlikely and one of a kind that you'll never hear its kind from any other living musicians than Orthrelm, Octis, Ocrilim, and Crom-Tech.
