SOTW: "Middelalder" (La Casa Fantom)

I've been listening to a lot of La Casa Fantom lately. Almost daily. After you wear out a record, revisits are inevitable, but I've been playing their self-titled LP like it's brand new. It just doesn't get old for me, and fewer bands can nail such schizoid tempo and genre shifts so seamlessly, especially considering there are only two instruments. Grindcore one second; spacey rock the next. This one's pretty much an instrumental, so the member's chops are all there is to rely on. Guitars? Who needs 'em!?

Hey Mikxxx, I believe you about the drummer; he had to make a deal with something evil to drum like that anyway!

I can get that Out Cold LP up this weekend or just after. It might have to be one of those limited d/l kind of things...

Vengeance- Yes, I recommend... everything by these guys. I posted the LP on which this song appears a couple of years ago, plus a 7". Low quality rips, but the link might still work.
