There are bands that play beautiful, engaging concerts, take a bow and go home - and then there are others that open up completely new perspectives, make time stop, and whose clear-cut approach burns itself into the audience's memory. Schnellertollermeier is such a band. Anyone who has seen them live will attest to the experience and, when trying to describe their music, will use words such as "stunning", "minimalist", "brutal", "decisive", "monumental", "angry", "controlled", "captivating" or "radical". Their new album takes their music even further - which at times unexpectedly leads to silence. On 5 there is more space, more intimacy, more time for dialogue between the music and listeners. The seven pieces, ranging from abstract dance music to electro-acoustic currents of sound, are gentler and more fragile than one would expect from Schnellertollermeier. "... Schnellertollermeier (Cuneiform) marries brutality to avant-garde rock and jazz. A classic power trio from Switzerland, the band plays with punk fury and dazzling technical dexterity to create booming, bone-rattling music that stalks, confronts and astonishes. On occasion, the trio steps back and offers wavy, vaguely threatening interludes, but soon the mighty force returns." - The Wall Street Journal
