Ex (Fifth Column)
by Joshua Brown
Surprisingly, Fifth Column has been consistently releasing their tributes to Pan without cheesing themselves out of possible widespread acceptance. That’s the way it should be, since the hoofed, horned one is supposed to be the god of music and partying, not self-indulgent Cheez-Wiz. Ipecac Loop are almost entirely instrumental, using synths and sampling to create an evil, eerie, Middle Eastern-type motif. If they weren’t obscure, they’d be capable of inspiring more maleficence than Slayer or Venom ever could have hoped to.
