"Relentless and fearsome, Berlin's
Gorilla Mask is all about energy all of the time. Canadian ex-pat and
saxophonist extraordinaire Peter van Huffel, drummer Rudi Fischerlehner and
bassist Roland Fidezius all have free jazz, punk and metal in their DNA,
but the evolutionary process has taken these silverbacks far, far beyond
their genetic coding. Their stuff moves fast – the ebb and flow of an
acutely aware trio of musicians who know what they want and know how to get
it. Hi-jinks nonstop. As soon as they've set your feet on fire, they're
pulling the rug out from under you. Yet, there's a precision to the
madness, a sense of purpose – the product of a constantly active, acutely
intelligent hive-mind of three virtuosos. Van Huffel wields a mighty alto
reed: imagine the cavernous tone of Arthur Blythe wedded to the blissed-out
inventions of David S. Ware and you're halfway there. He rides the churn of
frenetic fuzz-wah bass and crackling rimshot drumkit like a surfer on the
biggest wave he's ever seen. They craft spirals of sound in 4 or 5
dimensions, jabbing you in the ribs as they mess with your brain. And
before you can plead “¡...no mas!” the energy has already moved on into
uncharted territory."
