This missive from continental Europe slipped through the cracks when it came out just before Thanksgiving. Wall of Death, a French three piece from what we can tell, are "ranked among the principal exponents of the new European post-psychedelic rock scene," according to their record label's website. I don't know who is doing this ranking, but I'd like to see what the rest of that scene has to offer based on this first taste. "Main Obsessions" is a dark but compelling seven minute track, replete with charmingly droned vocals and a slow, carefully built crescendo. He might not get a satisfactory answer to "Tell me Jesus, tell me Death, tell me why I'm in so deep," but Wall of Death seem quite comfortable wherever that is.

You really ought to check out their full length debut album, Main Obsessions:
