Faithful to the original TKDE concept of drawing inspiration from movies, they recording what later becameSuccubus while watching Jess Franco’s film of the same name. This iconic 1969 movie, with its strong erotic mood, fragmented story line and oneiric photography encompasses perfectly the goal and means of TKDE / TMFJDC, in the way the band builds mesmerizing, deep and otherworldly atmospheres. More jazz-oriented than their heavier previous CD, Succubus leaves more room to Charlotte Cegarra’s vocals and Hilary Jeffery’s trombone, while the narrative is still led by Gideon Kiers (of Telco Systems)’s drums and Jason Kohnen (Bong-Ra)’s bass. Sensual, mysterious, pulsating and hazy, while Succubusis certainly not a new soundtrack to Jess Franco’s film, it is definitely something to be listened to in one take, and conveys the same feeling of displacement and lust. A new stone in the discography of the two headed entity that is TKDE / TMFDJC, Succubus displays the “corporation” in its most macabre yet entrancing side. Audio cinema has seldom sounded so lustful.
Seductive but perilous, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble‘s new session under the Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation name is a new combination of drones and jazz. Creating sensual, murky and dark atmospheres,Succubus shows the evolution of this band, with stronger horns and a focus on hypnotic, soundtrack-like material. A deep, dark and yet seductive trip again for the corporation. After the corpses, the succubus. While rehearsing for their post Mutations EP shows, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble recorded a new improv session under their Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporationmoniker on the 15th of January 2009.
