Album Review: Der Lange Marsch by Gas

Fairly Good, Based on 2 Critics

Pitchfork - 66
Based on rating 6.6/10

A sea of strings swims into view, and the crackle of vinyl reaches out of the mix like tendrils. The tone is tense, urgent, paranoid, and minor-key, interrupted by long exhalations on a major-key chord. There's no beat, but anyone familiar with GAS might find themselves already smiling with anticipation: It's coming. Sure enough, the kick drum that undergirds most of Wolfgang Voigt's revered ambient techno project slowly fades in, accompanied by a martial snare that first showed up on his last album Rausch.

Dusted Magazine
Opinion: Excellent

The metronomic kick drum at the core of Der Lange Marsch (The Long March) provides a grounding solidity to the new installment of Wolfgang Voigt's long running GAS project. Serving as a path and heartbeat, echoing the eponymous tramp, the four-four beat centers attention on the physical while it frees the mind to wander and wonder at the dense construction of loops and samples that fill the 67-minute piece. Voigt's quest to connect nature and nightclub centers on the significance of the forest in German folklore and his own acid laced wanderings through the Königsforst outside Köln.
