Save for the Germanic script of the band's logo little remains of the past, not least the music, which spurns the temptation to rely on former 'glories' and bravely strides ahead on its own terms, forging a new sound that believe it or not has more in common with British progtivists Crippled Black Phoenix than The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud. Tracks like Just Because I Can sound more like the Velvet Underground's Venus in Furs than the Horst Wessel Song, and the driving gothic space rock of My Soul Rests Low is something of a krautrock extravaganza that you end up wishing would last for far longer than it's three and a half minute duration. Whilst they continue to make interesting and demanding music such as that found on Wish I Weren't Here they'll find themselves attracting a whole new fanbase, of that I'm sure.

Review

The hypnotising, psychedelic grooves flowing from the latest release from Der Blutharsch and the Infinite Church of the Healing Hand, is another trippy slab of psychedelic, doomy stoner rock. A very hard collective to quantify, sometimes it is just easier to describe what we hear, and Wish I Weren't Here falls into that category. - 4/5
