Music Review: Mindflayer's "Expedition to the Harrier Peaks"

While at Half-price Books this weekend, I had a couple of minutes to kill while I waited for my wife, and I wandered over the CD section looking for something to listen to in the car. I spent all of about 30-seconds there looking. Call it fate or synchronicity, but during those 3 melee rounds, I stumbled across Mindflayer's Expedition to the Harrier Peaks.

This thing pretty much sounds like what I would expect a Mind Flayer's attack to feel like. It's heavy on the distortion and feedback, and light on anything resembling a melody. But if you know anything about noise rock, that's par for the course. Mindflayer (the band) is, in some ways, a supergroup of sorts for the noise rock genre.

If you're interested, there's a video of what is most likely their first show ever at this link. It's a bit more palette-able that what you would find on Harrier Peaks, which is bit more like this.

I am tempted, however, to create an encounter table to go with the map on the actual disk.
