(Soleil Mutant 54 // CD)
UNIT WAIL’s 4th album (“Egarés”) is finally available. Recorded in 2018/2019, the line-up hasn’t changed since their previous album (“Beyond space edges”) although this time ex-ART ZOYD trumpet player Jean-Pierre Soarez is featured on several tracks. With also Frank Fromy (ex-Shub Niggurath) on guitar, on 2 tracks. The studio production is excellent (we initially intended to press a Blu-Ray Audio, the idea being later dropped because of the way too high costs involved). The music is in the same vein as their previous recordings, this time more climatic (the presence of a trumpet but still dark ; JP Soarez very personal sound adding different perspective & depth). As before, this is an all-instrumental album ; probably their best offering so far. A band that gets better with every album.
