Steamroom Variation by Decision Dream

Drummer Anthony Bianco, bassist Jair-Rohm Parker Wells and guitarist Magnus Alexanderson burn out electric boundaries with their new release Steamroom Variation.

The fist part of this album is essentially a myriad of effects and improvisation. Screaming sounds come from Alexanderson’s guitar and the loop effects seems to fly from another dimension.

Bianco, Parker Wells and Alexanderson are unpredictable while playing acoustically and mysterious when mixing up multi-effects. These sounds can be associated to rock and even heavy metal in the long section of part 3.

Drummer Bianco keeps his sticks on the right cymbals. The sound is soft at times and very clear. Innovative are the double bass and the Fichter electric efforts of Jair-Rohm Parker Wells. Part 2 culminates with nearly perfect electronic voices performed by Alexanderson. Melodies fade softly, blending loop effects and a widely off beat drums.

This trio is obviously at home in innovating electronic effects progressing to an ad hoc situation. The stamp of their improvisation and musical research is certainly reached with Steamroom Variation. This release will be a delight for those who are into electronic music with innovative input.
