    REVIEW by Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
    METAL CHAOS ENSEMBLE [PEK/TONY SAVARINO/TAMORA GOODING/YURI ZBITNOV] - Molten (Evil Clown 9063; USA) Featuring PEK on oboes, bassoon, clarinets, shenai, alto sax, etc., Tony Savarino on guitar, metal, drums, Tamora Gooding on metal & drums and Yuri Zbitnov on metal & drums. Of the three Metal Chaos Ensemble CDs reviewed today (7/2/15), this is the only one with four members, two of who play mainly metal & drums. "Molten" is one hour-long work recorded at Evil Clown Headquarters in May of 2015, less than two months ago. It begins with multiple metals, gongs, cymbals, drums and assorted percussion. Quite hypnotic and well recorded. Similar in some ways to the Art Ensemble of Chicago, this music has otherworldly, ritualistic sort of sound. When PEK picks up that double reed (a shenai?), they move into the section which soon includes some strange vocal sounds at one point. Systematically PEK works his way through some eight different reed instruments while Tony Savarino switches between guitar and percussion, the sound of the ensemble ever-evolving and mutating. Another strange yet transcendent journey for the Metal Chaos Ensemble. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG ... more

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
