Acid Mothers Temple return with an expanded Melting Paraiso U.F.O. line-up, featuring the added guitar skills of Japan underground legend and new full-time member Tabata Mitsuru (Boredoms, Zeni Gava, Leningrad Blues Machine, etc.). IAO Chant from the Melting Paraiso Underground Freak Out finds the band revisiting the past and once again taking Gong's infamous "Om Riff/Master Builder" to soaring new heights. This is a completely new studio version recorded in a new Japan, one that's still coming to terms with recent catastrophic events. Split into two almost equal parts, "OM Riff from the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. Parts 1 & 2," this is the sound of a reinvigorated AMT playing some of their most up-tempo and groove-based music for some time. The laidback nature of acclaimed previous album The Ripper at the Heaven's Gates of Dark (REPOSE 030CD) opus is put firmly aside in favor of some heads-down riff-heavy freakouts. Taking the original classic "OM Riff" as its backbone, stretching it out to new highs and taking on an almost Krautrock sense of repetition and sonic attack. This is definitely more akin to the much-loved AMT live sound, and should appeal not only to long-time converts but pot-headed pixies and new kids rediscovering what guitar-based music is all about too. CD packaged in a gatefold card sleeve (first edition only).
