With a lucid degree of originality, and a musical virtuosity that attends the highest standards the genre could ever aspire to, Los Yithians has envisioned Pnakotus as a graceful, but highly skilled and powerfully emblematic pearl of the genre. With melodies that ascribe to a more intrinsic dynamic, the ostensibly engraved objectivity of the record – in a genre that usually has interminable moments of pointless uniform and repetitively dissonant musical passages – are remarkable and positively poignant points of genuine strength.
Musically, there are only qualities to highlight on this beautiful record. Each and every track is infused with a vigorous sense of clarifying intensity, that transmits a clear and acute message – that sounds ferocious, but imperatively modest and restrained at the same time – throughout pungent spiraling melodies, that transmits in a direct scale of pervasive intonations the openly fugacious devises of their abrasive music.
With a serious and incredibly conceived work, that establishes a more incisive and lacerating style of stoner rock, pervasively embellished at the epicenter of a marvelously creative and innovative musical approach, Los Yithians delivers in Pnakotus not just a great album, but a completely new form of conceiving, creating and revealing stoner rock.
