Alpha III – The Aleph (Alpha III Artistical Productions, 1969)

Download Alpha III’s The Aleph

Bizarre Brazilian prog from the late ’60s by Alpha III, just one dude named Amir Cantusio Jr. who dedicated The Aleph to “the big musician/keyboardist Keith Emerson.” Two side long tracks of weirdness, sounding like the score to A Clockwork Orange with its classically inspired crippling synth wobble, the dark & ominous grooves of The Wall (and only 10 years before Pink Floyd!), formal classical compositions tweaked for extra progginess, creepy clown laughs and fucked up vocals that are rewound, chopped, & distorted. Definitely a unique beast.

Fucked as hell and 100% original. Tortured Gnaw Their Tongues horror, blackened Niblock trombones, melodic pagan incantations, mourning Godspeed strings, power metal guitar wailings, furious neo-folk, pioneering levels of prog, inhuman demonic growls, black metal tricklings, all steeped for years in a vat of DOOM. Absolutely. Fucking. RIDICULOUS. This album is as brilliant as it gets, dudes. I haven’t heard anything this astoundingly unique in years. It’s bleak, dank, and goddamn creepy. I want to have it’s baby?
