RUSSIAN CIRCLES: "MEMORIAL" CONTEMPLATING ATMOSPHERIC INTENSITY

Russian Circles: "Memorial" Contemplating Atmospheric Intensity.

- Post-Metal Heavyweights Perseverance


Fifth Studio Album from American Post-Metal Heavyweights "Russian Circles" entitled "Memorial" released on 29th October 2013 via Sargent House. Still produced by Brandon Curtis(The Secret Machines, Interpol) the guy who's behind two Russian Circles previous album "Empross"(2011) and "Geneva"(2009). Russian Circles is maybe now is the Crown jewel of Post-Metal, apart from many other alike we used to know such as Cult Of Luna, some might say The Ocean, Intronaut, and Others will definetly still rooting for Isis. Don't get me wrong, I love Isis dude. Looks like my First Love all I can say. Russian Circles - Memorial develop a signature of Polarized patterns in Music. Some we can see from their Recent news about this album. The guys collaborated with The majestic Beauty Ms. Chelsea Wolfe. Whom works I find very Intruiging indeed.







Russian Circles sounds like Russian Circles, they have their own unique way of reproduce great Music through Crushing guitars sounds, twist and turns. They have those Element of being knowingly Beastly Guitars, Roaring basslines, Such as "Deficit" starts off with a Pounding contraction on the Ear. Those shredding Groovy dark side arms, Moving elegantly through what the Russian Circles we Know best. Some will find this Shocking for just hearing this the first time like saying, 'Dude For Real?!!' I myself fell in love with every bits and pieces, Fills up to my needs of Post-Metal supper. "1777" is maybe one of my most favorite track, play it slow, then go off crashing through a wall, Breaking point goes so Loud is making my ear bleeds Water, yes, It's making my ear wet. The typical Russian Circles signature moves. Full cresendo and goes menacing through a thick Brick. Powerful yet majestic. Love Mike Sullivan drum sounds, the sound really goes down to my inner thoughts, Geneva in their prime moments, And Brian Cook Pallbearing Bass Tracks in Empross loud breaking my Intesity boundaries, Very bad ass. Dave Turncrantz shredding Pale Axe weilder is more than we come to Imagine, Fucking Brilliant Indeed!. "Lebaron"  sounds like a menacing Polar bear really, comes to my mind as an Imagination a polar bear eating fresh penguin flesh, Crushing deliberately Anxiety energy. Full of Energy "Burial" is Molded with. Crippling your inner thoughts with those Bad Ass Bass lines dude, I mean. How awesome is that. "Ethel" ah, reminds me Of Malko, Mladek and Micah indeed, Those Empross and Geneva days, Electronic tingling on the side of your ear. Loudness more Subdued in this part actually, but the Song? There more than Excellent I can say. "Memorial" Their collaboration with one of the artist from Sargent House, Yes, Ms. Chelsea Wolfe, Still Perfect. Russian Circles may be a Instrumental stuff from the start but they do good too When Vocals included. This album is amazingly Beautiful, I'm giving (4.5/5)

Red Fang: "An Nightmare Opera, Specializes In Halloween With Whales & Leeches"

"WHALES & LEECHES" by Red Fang

It's Fangbulous!

It's been a while since their latest  "Murder The Mountains" Red Fang, In my opinion, Was the Most Heavy Rifftastic, Beer-Laden, And Booze Entertaining in both Ends, Coming out from the Heart of Relapse Recordings, The Record it's a frantic Panic Songwriting. But either way, Here's what the dude at Red Fang says on Spin Magazine


Tracklist:

1. DOEN
2. Blood Like Cream
3. No Hope
4. Crows In Swine
5. Voices Of The Dead
6. Behind The Light
7. Dawn Rising
8. Failure
9. 1516
10. This Animal
11. Every Little Twist

The result of this frenzy is a record that's heavier than their usual brutal boogie: hyper-charged bulldozer riffs, lyrics about a doomed winter and death tolls, and bellowed vocals that recall burly forefathers like Mastodon and Baroness

Aaron Beam(Red Fang) On Spin Magazine.

I in the other Hand, of course Find this thing is Newly To my Ears, And Excitement was in the Air My Friend! For Whales & Leeches, the band worked producer Chris Funk (Decemberists) and mixer Vance Powell (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Kings of Leon). This same team worked on Red Fang’s last album Murder the Mountains. In this Album Red Fang get it Crackin' With the help of guests Mike Scheidt (Yob) and Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession). Okay!, Now let's get Cracking with the Album , The Track start's Off with "DOEN" which stands of Dead Of Endless Nights, Pretty heavy shit track to start off with, reminded me of Matt Pike's Finest Heavy rock Crew "High On Fire" but of course still with Red Fang Flavoured Dna. "Blood Like Cream" it's kinda creepy rock n roll For those Halloween enthusiats out there, This is my favorite track actually, you can hear the track
.

"No Hope" Were kinda one of those days when you just wanna quit from everyday schedule, It's mainly about Losing Hope, and you were kinda like this street driver crashing to every shit in your life. Pretty Chaotic and Awesome Of Course dude, I Mean c'mon? The guys still have their Flavoured touch to the Music. It's New, And I'm Liking it! "Crows In Swine" Dooming it on with somekinda Ghost-ish Intro from the front, it's like A Food thing actually, like a Pig that could look like a Crow, These guys still playing with food names I Guess. "Voices Of The Dead" & "Behind The Light" like a Combination Life after death, The Dead shout out their voices, behind the light. Like meaning they didn't go to heaven actually, Poor bastard, but Nevertheless It's Cool, Like a Beatdown Stoner Badminton on your Head. Really knocks you off your socks. "Dawn Rising" kinda long Doom, Stoner Anthemic to World Revolution, Slow, Pounding, and Kick ass, kinda get a feel walking down the street feels like a guy with a lot History of Bad ass Reputation. Next Track "Failure" like a Slow moisture horror film. Pretty neat actually, Reminding me somehow of Mastodon. "1516" Now this is very Mastodon Influenced indeed, reminded me of Brent and Bill Guitar lines on Blood And Thunder. Fucking Cool! Grill, Chilling down your Spine down Under, and So does beneath. "This Animal" Reminding me of The Raw Side of Coliseum combining with Red Fang Dna and A bit of Queen Of The Stone Age I think. The last Track "Every Little Twist" like a rock hymn to problems in life I think. Pall Jenkins from Black Heart Procession and Three Mile Pilot also sings on this song. Mainly I Think Red Fang -  Whales And Leeches is a Bad Ass tune to start your Halloween day, Creepy, Cool, New, And Awesome. I'm Giving 4/5

((AUMAN)) - ROARING FROM THE SOUTH WITH (((SUAR MARABAHAYA)))

((AUMAN)) Suar Marabahaya:

“Southern Tiger Uprising”

For centuries, mankind have been doing quite a remarkable destruction to our beloved planet earth. For years they have been hunting down protected animals and who are believed, are now dangerously near extinction. “Pantera Tigris Sumatrae” A well proctected animal in the South Sumateran Forest, who is believed almost extinct. Is being hunted down and kill in their own Throne. Well ((AUMAN)) is not going to be happy with that.
 


 

Formed In the land of Kings, South Sumatera. These bad boys worship and protect the kings of the sumateran forest, And Made that whole thing into a music album. Titled and Named “SUAR MARABAHAYA” Going out Dangerously By Demajors Records. The Personnel itself are Farid Amriansyah who is known to be the frontman for Dagger Stab, Ahmad Ruliansyah Are from hardcore metal band known as Delirium, Grindpunk pioneers in Sumatera Rongsokan, Abin Sulaiman as Bassist, And Then The Guitarist And Drummer, Erwin Wijaya and Aulia Effendy are from a Indie/Rock/Post Band named Grey. Artwork was made by the Erwin Wijaya And Aulia Effendy, who has deal with a lot of bands Such as The I.C.U, The Pure Acoustic, Grey, Dagger Stab, etc

 



 

Here’s The Track List :

I. Intronitroduction : Year Of The Tiger
II. Unholy Terror
III. W.K.G.G(Wong Kito Gilo Galo)
IV. Viva Rimau! Rimau!
V. City Of Ghosts
VI. Suar Marabahaya
VII. Subsonic Teenage Dream Machine
VIII. Brokenhard Rock
IX. (We Are) The Sons Of The Sun
X. Sangkakala Apokalips
XI. Macho(Vetty Vera Cover)

In this album the boys combine hardcore with rock and a stoner atmosphere style. very nicely fucking catchy, good tempo, it’s like going crescendo to like this album. The first track Intronitroduction: Year Of The Tiger Heavy rock swing very headbanging indeed. keeps you energized within your car seat. Like strapping your white ass with a seatbelt. While the second track & the 3rd track, Unholy Terror & W.K.G.G They explain the awesomeness to fast kick ass hard rock to your ear and telling you not to low the damn volume even when your Dad is around. I Find this song really knocks you down of the moshpit, made you loose yourself entirely, But, on the other hand the guys explain how dangerously life is in South Sumatera, living the peaceful life only if you had a knife in your hand, It’s like Brooklyn And Bronx, Only Hotter and the sons of bitches who live here are all have that one slang that could get a man killed about something stupid. Viva Rimau! Rimau! Is the song where these rocknrollers explain that they worship, protect, and made an Ode to the South Sumateran Forest King, The South Sumateran Tiger. Fast Kick Ass Rock And Roll Tempo. Sharing the stories that they are the “Guardian” Of the king itself, And Not To Be Fuck With. It’s like trying to kick Bruce Willis out from Die Hard. City Of Ghosts come with slow, rock riff, if everyone ever said Western Swing, I Called This Tropical Swing, Very super effective if combine with a weed. Now This is my favorite track of all, Suar Marabahaya, Subsonic Teenage Dream Machine, And Brokenhard Rock. These three songs really can’t keep me off my seat, all of the sudden you would’be already hanging in a fucking coconut tree dangling your ass like a fucking tarzan. The Rock, The Hardcore, The Stoner Atmospheric Combined perfectly, Alas the results were really unfuckable! .The Vocals are too Impossible to be fuck with. The Amplifier really knocks down a fucking tree. the lead vocals are really in too it. good soundtrack for a bank heist, a gun fight, or bare hand fight, either way it’s awesome, not to be missed with. While (We Are) The Sons Of The Sun Deals With Hard Rock, Stoner Riffage. Take It Slow And Then Make your earholes Blow. having a sun bathe in a dessert. although we are not really in it were are just implying it. Now The Track That really deals with judgement day and heavy raw power, the pure hard rock fury power, Sangkakala Apokalips is the thing you need. Sudden Eargasm it a caution to those who seek trouble. The Vocals in this track really goes out, darkness clutches the world, people is like seeking refuge to live. yeah much more like apocalyptic disaster. More the less recommended for Doomsday Soundtrack. The Last Track Macho , Where ((AUMAN)) Covers Vetty Vera Song, This song goes for bad ass villain, who can’t be fucked with only raw power, you need strength and agility to do this kinda thing. The song suits for bad ass troublemaker in the neighborhood.

That’s all that I could say about this debut album Simply kicks the dick right in the prick. Remember The ((A)) Is Silent,  but the Fangs won’t be. keep that in your mind my friend

WARMOUTH X CLOUDBURST: Nausea.. Sickens In..(Split Album, 2014)

WARMOUTH X CLOUDBURST: Nausea, Sickness and Death...
 

Death Dealers!!


Both from the same neigborhood, Yogyakarta. having the same taste of growing up in a hardcore punk scene. This split album contains screaming bloody gore, "Warmouth" is a three-piece vicious, dark, chaotic, hardcore punk reinventing Nails, Entombed, and things your parents maybe don't know. "Cloudburst" a four man metallic grind hardcore punk, that shove a hot steel up your ass, Combines a shard of Pantera and Alpinist on course. Released by Unleash Records. This split album consists in 5 tracks. Both bands are a growing pack of wolves, both of them have just released a demo that you can stream on their bandcamp. 

The tracks starts off with Warmouth 'Changing Lanes' it's a 42 second rushing d-beat power, end's with a noise of bang that continues to "Collapsing Lungs" the breathing shifting tune of the guitar, the vocals of Snarl, growl, scream, and death metal riveting through your inner ear organs. Cathartic and darkly excruciating that's "No Salvation". They glimpse out the dark anthemic brace up mode, Very enjoyable.


 Cloudburst' steps in 'Warming Cabinet' it's this metallic sludge riff, a background of drums hitting and a changing of theme is a need. This is a well plotted complex sensible punk rock sound. Violent and rude. 'Fragments' a burst and a spark of d-beat pushing rough through the walls, you can hear that drum filling exchange when the riff shreds in, Sadness and Frustration echoes in around the vocals. Warmly entertaining.

This album is wildly suprising and nice, if you are a fan of hardcore punk, d-beat. I recommend you buy this album and listen to it while on a traffic jam, it'll warm up and start you day nicely. You can get the split album right here:
www.unlshrecs.com


Here's some sample tracks for you to listen, go to their bandcamp to hear more:





I'm giving this album,

3.8/5

Poison Nova - Circle of Woe EP(Lawless Records 2015)

Know God, No Fear, No God, Know Fear

Slamming Adrenaline Pulse 

Bleak, void, and hollow. An interpretation of what you've expect from these Melodic/Heavy/Black Metal enthusiast. I've seen them 2 years ago, In 2013, a split album with Bvrtan. 12 Tracks both bands are a promising sample of a magnificent resemblance of Black  Metal music. But now, none of that matters. Sure, some tracks in the EP was in the split album but who cares. Misanthropic and devastating charging violently with devoution to bands such as Watain, Immortal, God Dethroned, Mayhem, and Burzum, we could go on for a long stretch of line... Poison Nova alters their combination into a combustion of heavy charging black metal fury. Released by Lawless Records this year 2015, approximately a couple months ago, cover artwork done by Devilreject who've done works bands such as Devildriver, Chimaira, Skeletonwitch,etc. The context of the booklet filled with photographs of skulls by Dinda Advena. Design by Arian A. and layout by Herry S, and.. mostly some page is just darkness mingling around.


Starts off the title track "Circle Of Woe" a cycle of grief, despair and death. You can tell much information about an album just looking from the title and the cover art. Monolithic cries of frenzy and that blast beat drum patterns, is a reminiscent of a classic death and rattle theme, this song is really not the one you should be playing in Easter. "Wounds of Gaza" a tale of how earth is fed up eating blood and flesh created by the living things that lived in there, Exhilirating lurid sounds, shifting chords and all out cries of apathy. It's supposed to a sad song then again I forgot that this a black metal album. It is a sad theme album but how they said it changes the whole thing immediately. 

"The Curse of An Everlasting Search" an instrumental ambient noise with guitars, love those mist thin layered vocals hovering mid-air in the song, couldn't really hear it. "Anthem From Black Heart" Traditional black metal blast beat was interesting, but adding the deathmetal pedal beats was amazing. Pulzerising shifting notes and keys neatly put and add on. Not too much or too little. "Silent Wolves Howling Moon" this one is on youtube in 2013. Creeping death and shivers down your spine when you heard this lyrics "The sun will perish with eternal cold damnation" all of the sudden a post apocalyptic place were live in right now. "Pagan Blood" Features in our recent music article "10 Bands you Should Hear Before Hitting Puberty" tapping at number 6. 



Please don't really turn all things go black, It's pretty damn hard to read the lyrics.. with all things aside here's an official video from the track "Silent Wolves Howling Moon"
 




Were giving this album

4.2,5/5
