from the muscle of opening track "communication" to the intense desert rock of valvoline. from the beautifully epic "start stopping stop starting" to the head fuck album ending of "post scriptum". from the 7 minute brutal "butterfly dancer" to the trippy "discovered on birthday", this is an album of compelling, emotive, cleverly crafted rock music. thunderous multi time change bass and drums are overlaid with weighty guitars and the uniquely powerful rock vocals of singer/guitarist marko bach.
but, what the band do best is draw on the best aspects of rock and metal without ever forgetting the importance of a good tune. whilst some of the bands influences are clear - kyuss, tool, helmet - their obvious song writing ability also draws on the likes of qotsa and the who. the album was produced by guido lucas - who has worked with german bands such as blackmail, harmful (recorded with dave sardy - slayer, soad, helmet, marilyn manson) and sun. with the current rock scene dominated by the continent - whether that be him (finland), hives (sweden), minus (iceland) - it's germany's time. lacuna will be touring the uk in early 2005… "and the frog says…" is released through maybe records on the 7th february 2005. maybe records is a new independent rock label distributed in the uk through shellshock/pinnacle (sub pop, meshuggah, defenstration).
