Southern Lord - LORD262LP

Originally released in 1992, "Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore" is the third Massaker studio album, originally released by Rough Trade Germany. According to Caspar Br tzmann, the title track and "Bass Totem" are the band's most accomplished songs. It's certainly the most sonicly refined of their albums, recorded during a residency over several weeks at the pastoral site of Conny Plank's studio near Cologne, and produced by Ingo Krauss and Bruno Gebhard, who had worked with the famed Krautrock producer until his death in 1987. Not least, .Schwarze Folklore also features their new drummer Danny Lommen, whom Caspar and bassist Eduardo Delgado had headhunted at a concert with Lommen's Dutch prog-core band Gore (whom Southern Lord released a archival collection of a few years back). Lommen shared their tastes in sheer volume and presence, and "has a completely unique sound to his drumming", as Caspar marvels, "he plays ultrahard and clear, with authority and no compromise, nothing, not even the most turbulent and speedy beats, sound fuzzy - a statement." This, he adds with a smile, would sometimes lead to intense moods during rehearsals, when he overpowered - no small feat - competing with the sounds of Caspar's guitar.
