Acid Mothers Temple and the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. release ‘Chosen Star Child’s Confession’ on Riot Season Records

This is one of earths most fascinating bands. Acid Mothers Temple and its many offshoots has produced so much music I don’t know if the bandmembers even remember everything. I know I tried to make some kind of guide but I am still stuck at part I. It is like opening the box of pandora, you start off and think, hey this is cool, so much music and then it just does not stop, the same bandmembers are switching bands, quiting, starting different bands with almost the same name or side project that are something completely different, it just does not stop. As far as I know they released “Reverse of Rebirth in Universe” in riot season in 2018, a re-release called ‘Either The Fragmented Body Or The Reconstituted Soul’ on Necio Records and a very dirty split with Orphan Goggles in 2019 and rework  of ‘Minstrel In The Galaxy’. Also a split with Yoo Doo Right and also and album offshoot called Acid Mothers Reynols.

Their new album “Chosen Star Child’s Confession” and new line-up (Kawabata Makoto, speed guru, Higashi Hiroshi, Jyonson Tsu, Satoshima Nani , Wolf) is called “Chosen Star Child’s Confession” and is featuring Geoff Leigh (ex Henry Cow). You can see this album is the first one of a new era for Acid Mothers Temple.

The album wich we can hear 4 tracks from starts with some very trippy sound sin the first track and ends with wild solos an cosmic classic AMT sounds. The second track ‘Diamond Eyes areHurt’ is absolutely gorgeous, the band shows their softer side with the beautiful vocals and the sax in the background and makes this jazzy track a true masterpiece. ‘Cometary Orbital Drive (Christal Trigger 2199)’ is very trippy and hypnotic, 13 minutes of ambient and psych ends in some chillin guitar work. ‘Infected J Also Live Beast Catastrophe’ is experimental and heavy and has the signature AMT sound and I am happy this track is on it.

AMT is a band of many talents and on this album they show again their strength. This album may be more listenable then the others, more hypnotic and more sensitive. I love it. If you are a fan of all these Japanese psych and noise stuff, be sure to check out the cosmic side of Japan.
