Zombie Zombie - 'Rituels d’un Nouveau Monde'

Your enjoyment will be limited by your appreciation of largely instrumental music

The last time French drum’n’synth krautrock revivalists Zombie Zombie got together, it was to add driving beats to the soundtrack work of one-finger synth maestro John Carpenter. It’s a groove they clearly got stuck in: second album proper ‘Rituels D’un Nouveau Monde’ (Rituals Of A New World, in English) maintains that air of creeping threat and otherwordliness. Your enjoyment of it will be limited by your appreciation of largely instrumental music: if you can get past the sensation that you’re listening to the bedding tracks from ’90s gameshow The Crystal Maze, there’s plenty to enjoy here.
