The Manchurian Pass by Victor Sierra
Full 10 Pip Review (5 Star) from Atticus Oldman’s Steampunk Almanac
“As a big fan of Victor Sierra I had eagerly awaited the release of the latest musical installment in the adventures of the crew of the Hydrogen Queen – And the band’s forth album “The Manchurian Pass” is really everything I had hoped for.
Blending together musical influences from around the world with the distinctive industrial dance floor rhythms so unique to Victor Sierra, this latest collection of Steampunk and Dieselpunk themed narratives weave together a vision of epic worlds, fascinating concepts and strange yet oh so familiar places glimpsed only from out of the corner of your mind’s eye.
With special guests from across the entire spectrum of Steampunk musical invention assisting the fantastic talents of the usual crew of Commander Bob, The Legendary Converted Princess and Big Machine, The Manchurian Pass has a huge sound and yet offers ever deeper and subtle layers of complexity that brings sheer hedonism to your headphones.
Outstanding production values brings every nuance of the album’s amazing sound to perfection but that has always been the case with Victor Sierra and their recorded work. While it is early days yet, The Manchurian Pass is already becoming a clear favourite for my album of the summer and is a more than worthy addition to the collected works of Victor Sierra.” – Atticus Oldman
