... And last but not least, Skye Klad's self-titled album on the Mutant Music Label. Notable amongst Terrascopic circles for being the acid-rock lunar vehicle to Salamander's orbital space-deck for guitarist Erik Wivinus, tracks range from the righteously tripped opening cut 'Mind's Eye' via effects-laden Sabbatheseque freakouts ('Vespers', 'Ionosphere') and slow-fused burn-outs ('Amber' and a cover of Low's 'Sleep at the Bottom') to the sonic majesty of the closing 'Falling Clear'. Instrumentally tight and by all accounts transcendental live, methinks we'll be hearing more of Skye Klad before too long.
