Carnival Of Souls
Carnival Of Souls are the guardians to the guitar styles of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Rock’n Roll and Spaghetti Westerns are part of the ingredients, also The Shadows, Dick Dale, some Pacific uke artists and tex-mex guitarerros are leaving their traces.
The band boils over with ideas, their twang guitars dash through surf music, fire like machine guns out of their necks, or just kick back on good ole Hawaii.
Picking strings easy with a 1960’s attitude saying ‘We’ll drive our Buicks to the moon!’ Even an old fashioned mom-&-pop dance number is included, but still the disc is up to snuff in the modern world.
It never really sounds like a score to a Doris Day flic though, for they bring in an enormous amount of tensions. No backround music here, they tell stories and these don’t always end so happily. Also, here and there a portion of aggressive modern rock shines through. All of this is deftly woven together to a new flamboyant texture.
Stephane Grappelli meets some hula girls, crime themes are crossbred with a scratchy fiddle, somewhere out on the range there’s a Les Paul dreaming of folk rock…

Guitar fans will dig this album for its wall-of-sound made by any stringed instrument ever invented. As there are e-guitar, dobro, steel guitar, Hawaian guitar, six string bass and e-bass. Most of these are worked on by the C.O.S. boss himself, Achim Weigel. His colleagues of choice are Thomas Block (guitar), Rainer Herzam (Bass) & the percussionists Stefan Lammert & Till Steinebach.
