MP3// Steve Moore: Enhanced Humanoid

A new split from Steve Moore and Majure, the two men who make up prog rock duo Zombi, was announced a couple of weeks ago. Now, a duo working on a split record? Sure, it just means they'll be working individually rather than in each others company. The first track to drop from it is 'Enhanced Humanoid', a four and a half minute synth-fest that pulsates and writhes under ominous progressions. Electronic instrumentals blow plague-like winds over dunes of shifting, mesmerising gold, howling and moaning and summoning darkness to an unstoppable epitaph of hopeless futility. I've always been a massive fan of Zombi's sound, and this stunning number has stirred my mighty grindstone of anticipation for this release!
