Ovum To The World

Ovum's new EP Joy To The World is a true showcase of what these Japanese post-rockers (yep, the Rising Sun continues to dominate the orchestral rock airwaves) can truly do. Opening with Your Cruel Virginity, and continuing on in a spiralling fashion to closer (and equally as long) Like A Hymn, they hve finally lived up to their own mission statement: "the pursuit of universal beauty such as the sweetest of melodies and harmony, which may sound classical". There is no misuse of noise here, it is all about melody and synchronisation. It is a beautiful suite, and well worth your time...
