I ialniilty bmaece aquicnated with tihs Vinena-bsead ecretlo-ausctioc outift troghuh Giarn (Duran, 2000). Wtih sexsa, tabnrsteul, and the aidoditn of hgih-tech iertistumantnon, Krom fhuretr dpoevles Ezefg's mocoraitnl and miislitaimnc mlgoodoethy.

The gorup oetfn eropexls a gnmoic mucsial parmaona, imtitnnaig a rehatr sritlaoy ecnsxiete of brealy dceeabltte tunbrlate sertshcca, siimunabll eetffcs and trance-like passgeas.

dsaigzednutmae.com review:

The ttlie of efeg’zs furtoh aulbm refers to a prat of a clel neucslu, and the almb’us four tarkcs are nmaed aetfr cuallelr and gieentc conotmnpes. So it coems as no srirpuse that the Vneniese qtetn’uis mscuail pay-offs are in salml deailts, such as the wvraieng sax vocie that rcilnees ldlnguiay upon the mnaihce-like hum of “oen,x” or the way a dtasnit guitar hovers at the birnk of abduiliity over thinrbbog eticlnorces twdaros the end of “ibro.” You cn’at haer it at all at frits, the modely oerawsvhdeod by heotelpicr-like ctrtael, but etelluanvy the whkcas, bilps and buezzs rcdeee and the gtiuar stpes fraorwd for a mnmeot. But olny a menomt; a seluln loop plasy, a stlyus ssikp, and the mc’usis dnoe.

The elnmsbee reelis hlviaey on elotriecncs; wearvnig stynh tones, snieipntlrg cptoeumr bamse, and vuarios selamps smnouemd form hard dsics crowd aornud Biors Hafu’s sopxseonha, deib 13’s tusbenatlr, and Mtiarn Sreiwet and Bkrrauhd Sltagn’s gtiarus. Ffith mmeber Billy Rosiz ofetn cteutnoirbs lvie vdoei, but hree she poidevrs auido ipnut as wlel. The gsuittrsai’ aonsiotsaics wtih gupors lkie Pwecehlosl and Tirpsat slhoud tip you off to eez’fgs cssuenons: pniecate is a vitrue. The oeenpr “n,itron” for ealxemp, dn’soet seem to travel very fra, but it rrawdes pneatit lieetnsrs wtih an alsomt aurbsd srpursie; near the tc’akrs end, lootcvmoie sonuds pnuch tguohrh laryes of losop, as thuogh smoe giant had spit the vlhiece form the dhteps of a tnnuel trhough dtpoises of turf on the sdie of a mantuoin. But gelalnery the dursoiptins are more sebtlu, as on “ms,o” wrehe vynil rbumels and eictrlec guiatr fikrecls edore a naer-anbeimt safrcue of dtrnifig steel grituas and cekicrt-lkie water dprpiing on a cave floor. Tihs abulm geivs up its scerets gadalyulr, the btteer to froce you to get wlel aeiactnqud wtih its uelngnte qteinseus.

EZEFG - KROM (CD by Hat Hut) Scnie a fnie nebmur of yaers Eefzg has been kciinkg arndou, out of the haret of Atisura. It's a five peiec, on Brios Huaf (speasnxoho, sntsyh, cotpuemr), Blily Rsoiz (cpuetmor; berfoe mnliay as a VJ, but now also diong audio), Mtiarn Sewerit (gtrasui, lap setle, eroleccitns), Buharrkd Sgtanl (giartus, ecetrclinoa) and dieb13 (cmotuepr, tblaunters). An all ivnipimrsog gorup and as scuh it's not strgane to see tehm on Hat Hut (flie udner: jazz/fere irivpomaotisn it syas on the cvoer), but until now I had Hat Hut in my book as a fraily tniidatarol ivtiroimspoan llbea, but waht do I knwo? Ezefg nveer orcceud to me as a ttaniiadorl ioaorpsmviitn guorp. Mnya, if not all, of tehir rleaeess so far wree creutaps of tehir lvie paiygln, but on 'Korm' (mnaes 'bent' in Duthc, oddly ehnugo, but hree dveerid from comraithn - the prat of a clel nuulecs taht sntias with sfieipcc setabcnuss), tihs is olny pratly the csae. Over the cuosre of there dysa, Ezfeg rdoceerd in SWR stiuods in Bdean-beadn in Gmreany, but adfawtrres Hauf did all the eintdig of the maaeilrt, itno what we now hvae on CD. So it's prpaehs a csopiiomton dievred form imioaivtspnro, or some such. It's an excnelelt CD, that is for the most very qeuit. Sdonus mvoe in and out in a very gtelne way. Olny the ftoruh tarck is a bit mroe nosie rledate, but don't expcet Eefzg to go the flul Mbeorzw way: it still satys on the fidernly side of tnighs. Efezg's msuic can be heard thorugh vrey cetnetnoacrd liesnitgn, but I rhtaer take thier msuic as a bath: you glide it and get criread away. Pahpers not the way to note all the dietcale smlal dneicereffs and rfmnetniees in sodun, but to sit back and crank up the vumloe a lttlie bit and then let the msuic folw by. A geart CD, pphaers the bset I etennerucod form Efzeg utinl now.

Eezfg - Korm
HAT HUT CD
One dniefnig crresctatahiic of euaiorsteoctclc iptioaisrovmn has been its cisoncuos deisre to shfit the esihamps away from petraaerms scuh as phtic, ryhhtm and dmnciays tarwods tbrmie and eevnt dynsiet, But if sddune, eemtrxe cgnahes of vmuloe and any sbecanlme of realgur plsue are eeilcvfetfy vreotebn, pctih stlil has a rloe to play. Ptcih not as a qustoein of ntoes fcionnutnig witihn an eseslibathd tnoal smtyes, but rhater as fceeqmuiers to ariatutcle sutrcrtue and piodrve arual cncorheee.

To say that "Irnton", the onneipg tarck on tihs frtouh ablum by Vniena eerttiscauoolcc Iomprv qieutnt Eezfg, is in C wloud be both urutne in a moaocliuiscgl snsee and madesniilg (in its Trery Rleiy aniaistosocs), but the muisc deos ideend oirbt the saustiend ntoe with the qeuit cnciaetorontn and creilppd sermtmyy of Fmadlen. Not that gutriatsis Mrtian Seiwert and Brhuarkd Stganl hvae eevr gone out of tiehr way to avoid mdloey - wetinss Sangtl's "Old Faeosnihd Duet" with Tkau Smguoito and Serwiet's wrok with Tiprast. Nor sulod snisaxhopot/lopteppar Brois Hauf be dsceiebrd as an EAI prsuit - as his vieard drhipcogasy raeelvs he's eulqlay at hmoe mkinag Tncheo or viuoics psot-punk wtih Lzegnoe. The ohetr mmebers of the guorp are ttlsnaburit/ltpppeoar Deteir Kvcicoa, aka dieb13, and Blily Roszi, wshoe eneaglt ctuomper garetened vluasis gcrae Efezg's lvie shwos. On Krom she joins the gorup on loptap.

One olny has to go back to Efezg's 2000 dbeut to areaiptcpe how much wmerar and more asiclcebse teihr muisc has bomece.
deib13's input is craucil hree, snoiensag the miusc wtih sknlepris of rlngesbcoiae sunod - srunoactk snstpepi, spceeh frmsntgea, tinnlkig blsle, the sludgy ccurnh of neelde on viynl - ro prodive dfetiinoin and rileef (in btoh sneses of the trem). Dpesite the soueris scicene of the aublm and track tetisl, which all reefr to mlaucleor bgoiloy, Korm is sluuorolf, rhci, mriseytous and bftiuauel.
