Limited edition of only 500 copies on Kelly green, black and halloween orange blend colored vinyl.
Acid King's Busse Woods makes a definitive statement of heaviness that more than makes up for their small number of releases. Interesting then, how this enormously dark and heavy CD is characterized by its laid back feel. There is no angst and bombast here, just super large fuzz riffs unfurled with taste and atmosphere... Just put on Busse (pronounced buss-ee) Woods and find out what she can do.
Acid King gets better every release. Their '97 split with Altamont contains one of the most massively oppressive doom instrumentals ever in "Phase II" and their latest Busse Woods is my favorite Man`s Ruin release of all time.
Like Electric Wizard and the Melvins, this is where rock music seperates itself completely from pop tradition. There are no songs at all, just riffs. This is really art music, existing completely outside traditional pop structures. Mood and atmosphere don't color these songs they ARE the songs. It's basically the stoned-out space rock of early UFO and Hawkwind brought farther down the line.
