Vancouver's Black Mountain have won considerable acclaim from media and musicians alike; their moody, '70s-inspired dirge-rock has hit a chord with many, including the band Coldplay, who invited the group to open for them on their 2005 U.S. tour. Rather than continue down that much-heralded path, however, frontman Stephen McBean opted instead to work on his side project, Pink Mountaintops. Following the very sexy self-titled Mountaintops debut back in 2004, many expected to see a repeat of that form on this follow-up, Axis of Evol. Au contraire... as the title would suggest, this disc's focus is anything but sultry. The content within the seven songs adds up to 34 contemplative minutes of music with recurring references to Jesus, the Devil, death, war, and gospel songs.
Sonically, McBean never attempts to emulate anyone, yet his languid musical manner has desperate, dark qualities shared by musicians from Neil Young to Black Sabbath to Smog. Continuing the comparisons, "New Drug Queens" has a PJ Harvey presence, while "Plastic Man, You're the Devil" will transport the listener straight into a Vietnam war movie flashback. The CD opener, "Comas," is a gorgeous, whisper-soft melody that echoes Bonnie "Prince" Billy's minimalist fare, while the bass-heavy "Cold Criminals" follows, a fan-pleaser that is the closest thing to a Black Mountain song that exists on the CD. Although this isn't the masterpiece that the self-titled Black Mountain disc was, it certainly gives devotees lots more music to listen to until their next disc comes around.
