Il Ballo delle Castagne - Soundtrack For Unreleased Herzog Movie album review
Herzog brought to life with a new slant.
Any band who reference master German movie maker Werner Herzog are potentially leaping into a critical furnace. A unique filmmaker, Herzog traverses a fine line between reality and surrealism. So, for any band to boldly proclaim an album to be the music for a movie he’s yet to make… well, it’s daft. Except… Except these Italians have remarkably carried off their ambition and come up with a quite brilliant album that does evoke the inspiration of Herzog, but in doing so also exposes a spectrum of musical reference points which reveal a stream of subliminal visions. Soundtrack… is both dream and nightmare.
