This is the return of classic via Ici D'Ailleurs. Dälek's debut album "From Filthy Tongue Of Gods And Griots" that is still to be considered a masterpiece in Mutant- / Industrial HipHop has been re-released only recently and brings back only the best of memories related to a genre that never gained the attention it should've gained, provided fans and followers with epic underground shows that'll never be forgotten and introduced a new level of impact to the HipHop world, bringing previously unheard levels of bass as well as layers upon layers of heavy Noize amalgamated with often overwhelmingly huge, cinematic, orchestral melancholia to body and brain, creating a truly immersive musical experience. As we've been there and seen Dälek performing live on stage back in these days this is a full on recommendation to purchase this album - not only for obvious anthems like the opener "Spiritual Healing" or the Matador-released single track "Classical Homicide" but also for the hard hitting interlude excess "Heads" and the super intense, feedback-heavy 12 minutes long "Black Smoke Rises" that fuses Noize experimentalism and Spoken Words, creating a dark'ish soundtrack for a forthcoming apocalypse. Still extremely relevant, even 13 years after its original release, and a must have for all Dälek fans as this re-release features the previously unreleased bonus track "41 Shots" in its original and instrumental form, revealing a still heavyweight but more funky side of the group's work. Great!
