“Some straight-up krautrock, some experimental drone, some improvised jamming and some kosmische ambience – that’s more ideas on one EP than many bands can muster in a career. The impressive thing is the ease with which Jarvis and Braesch turn their collective hands to each approach. Pachyderm appear to be a unit that could turn their hands to pretty much what they want and you just know it’ll be top quality. This is one impressive EP.”
Dayz of Purple and Orange


The term 'Das Totenschiff' (the Death Ship) was coined by the pseudonymous author B. Traven. It refers to any type of boat that is in such bad condition, it is worth more to its owners over-insured and sunk at the bottom of the sea. The lives of the people on these boats is not a consideration to the owners.
