Frederik Thordendal's Special Defects - _Sol Niger Within Ver. 3.33_
(Relapse / St. Clair, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (7.5 out of 10)
Finding enough time to pry away from his duties with powerhouse outfit Meshuggah, Thordendal and his new armada of cohorts (a whole slew of sick puppies, I tell ya!) really do some serious mental damage with _Sol Niger Within Version 3.33_. This release, a fucked up one at that, is all over the map. It's just, like, out there. Metal riffs a plenty fill up this release as the group of musicians take charge and make this one ride you'll never forget. Too complex to get into, yet easily palpable by those craving eclectic song structures (well, as eclectic as they'll get) and off-kiltered song writing. Interesting, to say the least. Where do musicians get ideas like this? I'm stumped, but still loving this.
