Electric Mud - Quiet Days On Earth (2020) by Prog Rock Review
"Electric Mud are a post-progressive duo from Germany comprising of Hagen Bretschneider and Nico Walser. I would usually attempt to give you an overview of the artist’s main sound but on this occasion I struggle as these guys refuse to be compartmentalised. Having heard of this studio-based duo and the original sounds emanating from their work, I was intrigued enough to give their 2018 album ‘The Deconstruction Of Light’ a listen. This dark offering lends itself to a heavy, distorted sound where chunky guitars riffs dominate and dissonance is prevalent – very Crimson-esque I’m sure you’ll agree. Such heavy moments are contrasted with ambient Tangerine Dream like soundscapes that are still darkly coloured but provide a different texture to relieve the more intense moments. I knew that they had a new album out this year titled ‘Quiet Days On Earth’, and expecting to hear more of what ‘The Deconstruction Of Light’ offered, I was excited to get my teeth into their new album!"
