Review from Amazon:

https://i2.wp.com/www.ssmt-reviews.com/images/laswell/band.jpgEOE could be the strangest rock band on earth, consisting of Eraldo Bernocchi (guitars, samples), Bill Laswell (basses) and Mick Harris (drums).

“Veve” is one of the best records either artist has done. I wouldn’t place it on a par with Scorn’s masterpiece “Evanescence”, because it lacks diversity in sound, but it is far preferable to Mick’s and Bill’s later-era solo recordings.

The overall sound is dark, powerful and distorted, thanks to Mick’s slow but harsh drum beats and Bill’s croaking deep-sea basslines. But sometimes EOE manage it to sound even a *bit* friendly, particularly on “Aether” with its beautiful synth samples.

All in all, “Veve” is a surprisingly accessible album and provides a true listening adventure.

Review from Mick Harris’ Homepage:

https://i2.wp.com/www.ssmt-reviews.com/images/laswell/band.jpgThe first outing under the Equations of Eternity banner again pairs up Bill Laswell and Mick Harris with help from Sigillum S’ Eraldo Bernocchi, who previously worked with Harris on the ‘Overload Lady’ drum ‘n bass excursion. Anyone familiar with Scorn’s output over the last couple years will immediately recognize Harris’ studied, spare beat programming and his disembodied samples. The same goes for the very up-front Laswellian bass lines, which on a few songs are treated with a good amount of wah (achieving an uncanny Bootsy Collins effect on the track “Fifty Gates.”) Eraldo Bernocchi adds electronics that are mostly complimentary to Mick’s, and guitar that would never be recognized as such unless he was credited for it.

The album has a decidedly mystical theme to it – complete with Aleister Crowley quote on the sleeve – and certain parts of the beat mainframe sound a lot more indigenous/tribal than what I’m accustomed to from Mick Harris.

https://i1.wp.com/static.flickr.com/77/198867556_e5cd1b28c2.jpgThe album opens with a plaintive monk’s chant, and the drones that follow are of a quality that evokes wide-open spaces rather than urban paranoia. Adding to the mystical angle are tracks like “Loa” which exhibit a strong vodoun influence.

A high point of this album is that it manages to be reverent of the universal knowledge it conveys without reverting to cliches in presentation and technique. It seems as though all the participants honestly want to sculpt a 21st-century sacred music, and are aware that they can’t do so just by slapping some machine beats on top of a soloing didgeridoo. Like the best in sacred or ritual music, EOE has a physical impact, is loaded with tone color and isn’t intrusive. It’s a standout disc in the already impressive Wordsound catalog.
