A truly MIND-BENDING excavation from London’s Horn Of Plenty label, who completely catch us off guard with this archival spread of material from shadowy Italian autodidact and multi-instrumentalist Paul Chain.  Real name Paolo Catena, his ‘Paul Chain’ pseudonym became a outpost for his esoteric studio experiments that have emerged from the late 70’s until 2003 where he announced his ‘artistic death’ and destroyed all the tapes and photos in his possession. No explanation was given.  Paul Chain has become a cult figure in the doom metal scene, but his 'purely phoentic' vocals, lo-fi recording techniques, and disregard for genre - with this officially licensed 93-minute double LP the Horn of Plenty sidesteps the metal side of the Paul Chain catalogue in favour its more esoteric corners where Paolo explored folk, psych, prog, and electronics. Paul Chain Is Dead Volume 1 presents tracks that haven't appeared on vinyl for 30 years alongside first-time vinyl outings.. (Mint / New)
