If one could imagine a Black Metal version of Can's 'Future Days', inverting that album's sunny optimism into dire despair, one would hear something like Xasthur's 'Subliminal Genocide': almost as psychedelic, almost as cyclical, almost as hypnotic. Still, one hopes that Xasthur's further albums will become as diverse as Can's discography, instead of more duplicates of the previous albums. Next time, can we have some ethnological forgeries from a truly black continent, some Striborg meets Stockhausen?
