Ayahuasca Dark Trip – The Unknown Trip At The Top Of The Mountain

The Unknown Trip At The Top Of The Mountain (2011) - AYAHUASCA DARK TRIPAYAHUASCA DARK TRIP’s second trip for another Krautrock world, with dark ambient shower.

By the way, a fine expression for me that they have called their second album “The Unknown Trip At The Top Of The Mountain”. Wondering where they should try to go at a mountain whilst listening to this album, and it’s not easy to understand their fuzzily veiled mind. Drastically warped dark ambiance with rigid electronic knocks / scrubs might make their real mind depth more obscure and more mysterious. Infernal shouts with non-percussive complex structure can blow our brain and squeeze us into weird mind-altering catastrophe. Soon after a bit safe and sound comes to us in the latter part of Pt. I, dry and inorganic experimental / avantgarde side of view completely absorb our vitality, without moisturizing at all. This scene sounds like some Krautrock projects like Semool or Iskra … oh nope, more dreamy alongside of their psychedelia drenched in ethnic / tribal atmosphere that can be heard in the third track. Amazingly their noisy appearance  here and there cannot annoy us but pick us up to their dreamy sound shore.

The last two trips get more of experimentalism / avantgardiam / Krautism, with no stiffening but softening sound garden beneath our deep mind. Cannot call this creation as a simple stoner / psychedelic stuff really, they might have been reborn in this album I guess. So not recommended as a psychedelic progressive one but let me say we can enjoy their entire kaleidoscopic alteration without any suspicion.
