The Black Heart Rebellion: People When You See The Smoke...
Belgium’s expansive psychonauts blaze a new path
There’s no coming back for the Black Heart Rebellion, so far have they spun out on their own evolutionary arc that even the ritualistic minimalism of 2013’s Har Nevo sounds conventional by comparison.
The Belgians’ third album builds on the tribal drums of its predecessor, boldly performed again by Tim Bryon. They vie for supremacy with the tension within the enraptured, compelling exhortations of vocalist Pieter Uyttenhove, a possessed cleric whose preaching occasionally descends into rants.
