Malian guitarist Mdou Moctar's new release, Funeral for Justice, is a wild ride. From the almost Iron Maiden-sounding moments of the title track "Funeral for Justice", to the frentic energy of "Sousoume Tamacheq", to the ethereal and more traditional sounding tracks "Takoba" and "Imajighen", the album pushes the Toureg blues/rock genre into new territory, both sonically and musically. Funeral for Justice was produced by Mikey Coltun, who also plays bass in the band, and the album was mastered by Heba Kadry.
