Zebulon Pike: Space is the Corpse of Time

Space is the Corpse of Time is the fourth release from Minnesota band Zebulon Pike, an instrumental mix of stoner, post rock, doom, space rock, drone, and math metal. Quite an eclectic combination, but that's the best way to describe this unique band. Zebulon Pike don't create music that the masses are going to fall in love with, that's for sure. Most of the tracks here are in the 10+ minute range, and twist and turn through moments of stark atmosphere, droning soundscapes, doomy death marches, jagged King Crimson styled explorations, and complex riff-o-rama. For the casual listener, extended cuts such as "Powers Of The Living - Manifestations Of The Dead" and "Spectrum Threshold" will contain a tad too much meandering, but if you have an ear for this type of thing, the looping guitar lines, booming bass riffs, and crashing drum patters will be a pleasant surprise. "Echoic Worlds" is filled with dissonant chaos, and the raucous "Trigon in Force" is like a chance jam session between King Crimson, Mastodon, and ISIS.

Instrumental rock for the serious music nerd? Space is the Corpse of Time certainly falls into that category. A bit too plodding at times for its own good, this is still an adventurous CD that has plenty of quality moments that warrant your attention.
