    REVIEW by Bruce Lee Gallanter. Downtown Music Gallery
    METAL CHAOS ENSEMBLE [PEK/BILL T MILLER/YURI ZBITNOV] - Chrononauts (Evil Clown 9064; USA) Featuring PEK on alto sax, clarinets, oboes, bassoon, game calls, etc., Bill T Miller on electronics & metal and Yuri Zbitnov on metal, drums & theremin. This is another trio version of the Metal Chaos Ensemble which includes Bill T Miller on electronics and mainstay Yuri Zbitnov on theremin. Plus all three also play percussion and or metals.
    This disc was recorded just over a month ago on May 27, 2015. The title here is "Chrononauts" which are time travelers and that seems appropriate for this unit which has that ancient to the future sort of sound plus a time machine-like image on the cover. The electronics and percussion work together here quite well and it is hard to tell them apart at times.
    Beginning with spacious, mysterious sounds and building in intensity from there. Is more strained than the other discs by Metal Chaos Ensemble. If you are patient it does take us away a journey to another place. The vibe changes once PEK picks up his reed or double-reed and a ritualistic groove takes over for a bit, the vibe gets darker and quite a bit more intense.
    Take a chance with a disc from Leap of Faith or the Metal Chaos Ensemble and being taken away to another time or place. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

Metal Chaos Ensemble Boston, Massachusetts

Metal Chaos Ensemble was formed in early 2015 by PEK and Yuri Zbitnov as a working project to explore chaotic rhythms on metallic instruments. It was immediately obvious that Metal Chaos Ensemble had a sound to itself and over the last five years has been one of the most prolific Evil Clown ensembles. All MCE sessions include at least me and Yuri, along with a whole bunch of different guests. ... more
