SALIM JAVAID - SAXOPHONE AXEL ZAJAC - GUITAR JO BEYER - DRUMS

"AXEL ZAJAC, SALIM JAVAID AND JO BEYER ARE CREATING MORE COLORS AND ROOM FOR ASSOCIATION THAN YOU MIGHT THINK BY SEEING THE LINEUP WITH GUITAR, SAXOPHONE AND DRUMS. THEIR JOY WITH DESTRUCTION TRANSFORMS THEIR MUSIC INTO A HUMOROUS COMMENTARY ON THE POSSIBILITIES OF CONTEMPORARY JAZZ."

- REDAKTION JAZZZEITUNG, MARCH 2015

"WHAT MALSTROM IS DOING IS BEYOND ANY STYLISTIC CLASSIFICATION:

IT IS A HEAVY-METAL-HARDROCK-FREEJAZZ-EXPERIMENT UNDER HIGH VOLTAGE,

A SUDATORY SENSORY RUSH AND AN EXCESSIVE PLAY WITH THE ELEMENTAL FORCE OF MUSIC."

NEW ALBUM

MALSTROM + FLORIAN WEBER

OUT SOON

THE MALSTROM DEVOURS EVERYTHING IN ITS REACH, BE IT LIGHT, SOUND OR MATTER.

IT SUCKS EVERYTHING INTO ITS VORTEX, DRAWING IT DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO

THE VERY CENTER OF THE MALSTROM. BUT WHAT DO YOU FIND AT THE CORE,

AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE SWIRL? THE EYE OF THE STORM?

A VOID, SHEER NOTHINGNESS? IS IT A PLACE OF CALMNESS THAT CONTRASTS

THE FURIOUS EDGES? DOES THE MALSTROM EVER END?
