DECAYCAST Reviews : Sgt. Elyas “Tubular Moanings Of A Galactic Refrigerator” (Aphelion Editions, 2019)

Sgt. Elyas presents slow oscillations of  fuzzed,  decaying  churning guitar works belting out cold isolations for the listener to freeze in  confusion. The sound is heavy, thick, and powerful, without overusing distortions and effects, the tones reference the guitar but the sonic range is quite nuanced with distant  throbbing percussion like rhythms fading in the background, slow symphonic pulses, washing ashore like a wave crashing upon the  unsuspecting sand.  Cresendos come with thick, and washed  out drums hammering the surface of a still, frozen lake, and we are once again cast into a cold forgotten tundra of confusion and longing.  “Tubular Moanings Of A Galactic Refrigerator” falls somewhere between power drone, drone and imaginary film soundtrack. Overall sonically unique and refreshing.
