To understand the music of this second album from MEKONG DELTA (which should be finished by the time you read this)you have to take care of the thematical conception first. We already have reported about the strange title "The Music of Erich Zann" in our last issue. What it means and what the inspiration is behind the storyline of this album,is. described by Bj�rn with the following words:"The lyrics are inspired by a short story of .
Taking the name of one of . Lovecraft's better known tales, 'The Music Of Erich Zann' is the second album by these German thrashers, and despite a short time between the release of the two albums, there has been some significant development regarding the sound of the band. While the overall style of the band has improved however, it lacks the same naive charm that first attracted me to the debut.
The downside of 'The Music Of Erich Zann' are the vocals. On the self-titled debut, I loved Wolfgang Borgmann's really energetic delivery. It felt really unpredictable, with him sometimes going for a melodic approach, or a thrashy rasp, or even a falsetto wail that would send chills down my spine. Later that year Jorg Michael returned to the fold and Mekong Delta would reconvene to record their second full length effort, a concept album entitled The Music Of Erich Zann. While the first album was complex and intricate, this second effort would set the bar even higher. Each song here features inventive song structures, complex time signatures, unpredictable time changes and incredible instrumental prowess.
The debut album Mekong Delta was released in 1987, produced by Ralf Hubert. Due to touring duties with his current band, Jörg Michael was replaced by Uli Kusch (using the name Patrick Duval) for the shortly thereafter following picture disc EP The Gnome. Mekong Delta returned to the studio around new year 1987–1988, and recorded the concept album The Music of Erich Zann, with the same line-up, again produced by Hubert. Due to, or because of, the chosen obfuscated identities the band's big breakthrough did not happen
