Bull Elephant: Part two in the Bull Elephant trilogy mythos…..

Bull Elephant is an anonymous four piece band collective based in London, UK. The line-up is Winterbeast: guitar/vocals; Vawndol: bass/grind; Pickle Rick: drums; Black Horn: lead guitar. They are inspired of post-doom and pre-death. Bull Elephant will release its second album, Created From Death, in August on Eat Lead and Die Music.

The album, part two in the Bull Elephant trilogy mythos, picks up where the debut ended. The eponymous creature, originally resurrected to fight occultist Ahnenerbe SS just before the outbreak of world war, has been destroyed and reconstructed into human form; then placed into the care of a renegade ape. The child’s witch-mother sacrifices herself so the duo can escape and they live in exile for several years, attempting to remain hidden from the enemy.

Meanwhile, Nazi Germany and Allied forces fight battles on two fronts: in conventional theatres all over the world and as a secret war for control over supernatural powers that neither fully understand.

Eventually, after being discovered and temporarily under siege, our heroes are compelled into action; launching a campaign to harness nature against the worst of mankind’s impulses; which now includes reanimation at a mass grave site of an undead legion in service to the Reich. The ultimate renewable human resource.

As with the debut album, think of the background concept as Raiders of the Lost Ark set to a doom-tinged heavy metal soundtrack where Judeo-Christian mythology is replaced by the even more sinister universe hinted at in the writings of H. P. Lovecraft…. with Nazi zombies, assault wolves and a battle-armoured whale that makes Moby Dick seem tame.

Tracking of bass and drums, mixing and mastering was executed by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Cathedral, Ghost) at Orgone Studios, Bedfordshire, UK; while guitars and vocals were recorded at various bunkers around the UK. The title track Created From Death,

Emergent, given new life

Cosmos in corporeal form

Raging through the awakening

Guided by the stoic giant

Speaks through walls of sleep

Silence, never so loud

Unproven messiah

Taken into hiding

Child of stars and iron

Reactor-born

Created from death

Now absorb the world

Through words and images of days gone by

and yet to be, fast track through hell

Like a sea, felt between

Let the ocean in

Surveyed from an oaken throne

Built of flesh and bone

Found outside of the moment and so it is seen

Layers peeled to the core reality

Two selves split, the mythic soul

As it died, the next chapter began

Created from death

Product of ancient minds and (wo)man

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4274 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
