"Faust were certainly among the leaders of Germany's Krautrock movement back in the early '70s. Ensconced in 'The Pantheon' forever as truly visionary artists, their early records still sound light-years ahead of their time 30+ years later. From The Frozen South features original Faust mainman Hans Joachim Irmler joining forces with the iconic 'scape artist/percussionist Z'EV at Faust Studios. The topologically-charged results range from spacious and soothing, through full-on digital brutality; each piece is subtly tinged with both artist's distinct and respective take on the out-rock they helped create. Frozen South offers a glacial essence of the sounds these two legends have created and incorporated over the last 30 years, plus new ideas and experiments -- each distilled through a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration. An incredible sonic journey made by two of the genre's pioneers to be sure; a monument to the avant garde, perhaps... but steadfastly, as always: of and for the People!"
