Flowing into the ethereal soundscapes of “Uzumaki”, Zoltan quickly turn on the heavily melodic and motorik rock sounds that open the album to reveal their love, as well as an impressive knowledge, of kosmiche, prog, and avant-garde soundtrack music.  While there may be a lot of bands that are trying to do the ‘horror soundtrack’ thing these days, Zoltan are one of the few bands that I’ve heard which have the knowledge and skill to actually pull it off.  Deftly moving into a definite Goblin like groove “Uzumaki” also has these awesome little chasms where the beat will drop out and these piercing stings of synthesizer pierce the veil of gaping space and cleverly constructed dropouts.  Quickly recalling a litany of Italian composers and combining it with their own unique take on the full-band elements of Goblin and American horror cinema soundtracks of the 70s and 80s, “Uzumaki” is an amalgam of everything that makes Zoltan who and what they are in a tight five minute package.
