Butterfly Temple - _Baec_
by: Paul Schwarz (4 out of 5)
Boasting a host of bizarre, unusual keyboard textures and Russian chanting on top of a slew of other odd noises and a varied array of female vocals, this Russian band, who even sing and print their lyrics in their own language, are impressively ambitious and, yet more surprisingly, successful in being interesting and enjoyable quite a reasonable amount of the time. _Baec_ takes a few listens to absorb, but it's refreshing in its seeming drive to not simply follow the flock but strive on in its own, relatively individual, direction. It is no musical revelation, but it shows a lot of potential and a full-length with some serious financial backing behind it could prove very interesting. Unfortunately, singing in Russian may severely limit the band's appeal outside their home country.
