Review: TITA TO TACHYONS Cactides – The Sleeping Shaman

Cactides is five tracks of dense, precision oriented jazz metal fusion. Whether or not all, or just some, of this forty one minute opus was improvised (notable album closer “Everybody’s Dead, Dave” is the only track specified as improvisational), the result is absolutely beyond a doubt impressive, genius even if you’re one for superlatives. […] To successfully carry this off, to recreate a detailed dystopian, futuristic world through music alone is an amazing achievement…” – The Sleeping Shaman

TITAN TO TACHYONS: Cactides – Ten Glorious Killers

Cactides is very much built to form another life entirely in a live setting, with plenty of space being made available to explore and improvise. […] The listener can also pick apart a plethora of influences (if you must), whether that is a particular band, or holistic genre traits. The transitions between the parts of the tracks are seamless, and we recall King Crimson’s Lark’s Tongues for reference there. The thundering guitar riff that opens and closes Tycho Magnetic (with its Earth levelling bass) could fit nicely between Asteroid and Supa Scooper on Sky Valley (Kyuss), yet it wouldn’t sound out of place between Outshined and Slaves (Soundgarden’s Badmotorfinger). There is a definite funky Primus slap angle to some parts, while there is a warm relationship between the bass and guitar that does not sound a million miles from Flea and Navarro’s chemistry on One Hot Minute. If you listen carefully there is a gentle harmonic used on Starthinker that recalls the post rock band Slint, while after that first riff in Tycho, there is a thoughtful Nothing Else Matters type section. On the very same track a Giant Squid esqe lick transforms the track. All this is wrapped in unmistakeable groove, with energy, a shell of psychedelia, and a lazy NY Jazz swagger.” – Ten Glorious Killers
