"Finally the 5th KTL studio album is ready for release. Whereas their previous album IV was recorded and made in a relative short period in a more traditional rock environment, V turns full circle, takes its time and tackles the complex working processes of the european avant garde. Rooting themselves in such legendary electronic music studios such as EMS in Stockholm and GRM in Paris, OMalley and Rehberg have delivered a rich set of sound experiments far removed from harsh metal/noise blizzards of their early albums. They took a step further by inviting icelandic composer Jhann Jhannsson to orchestrate Phill 2, resulting in a towering storm monumental classicism. Finally, Last Spring: A Prequel turns the whole album on its head with abstract alien textures of the Gisle Vienne installation of the same name., with text by Dennis Cooper spoken with devout intensity by long term Vienne collaborator Jonathan Capdevielle. With full colour artwork by Mark Fell, V is KTLs most sophisticated work to date.

Phill 2 orchestrated by Jhann Jhannsson.
Performed by City of Prague Philharmonic, conducted by Richard Hein

Stephen O'Malley: Guitar, Bass, Modular Synthesiser, Computer, Contact Mics
