Hear ye, hear ye. For you Sabbath fans. I know this album has been released months ago, I've been trying to review this album for so long, and hear goes. "Matiasu" a word which describe Death and living creatures, these Duo Stoner/Doom Metal Aficionados have been in my radar for months, I've been hearing their live peformances and Listening to their tunes, in Matter of fact, REVOIRREVOLVE has done an Interview with band Itself, in Circa 2012 of course, We've been reposting the old Interviews from the old site to the new ones HERE
"DOOM DANCE" That's their title for their EP album, Matiasu consist Duo Stoner/Doom Metal members, Their References goes to Serpentine Path, Moss, Electric Wizard, Sleep and Of course the Holy Legendary Godfather of Heavy Metal Black Sabbath himself. Released via An Sonic Boom Record label Coventry from the Darkness glimpse of an a Could see A.K.A Sonicfuneral Recordings who works with Dark parts of life such as Wicked Suffer, And Asangata. Now let's get Crackin. Here's the Tracklist:
Cult of Serpent
The track starts with After Dark a riveting racket of heavyness burned deep beneath, Anthemic darkness Riff ladenistic Steel up into your knee, After a couple seconds Blast into a fucking furnace of Destruction, I Love the Riff, Prentitious slamming right into your earholes like a fucking machine gun. It's loud, It's Heavy, and it's Locally our Matiasu, The same Goes for Cult Of Serpent a Snake biting riff edging in both ends, still Dangerous though, not to be fucked with, Reminded me of Matt Pike's Guitar lines, Mainly Matiasu trying to Reimage a Dark Self Seeing Music, Deals with darkness, doom and weed I believe, Doom Dance is an Electric Wizardry, It's slow, Pummeling your head, knee and everything in between, reminded me Of Om somehow. Hallucination is a weed travelling flower man, crippling slowing down time itself, this sounds like Sleep to me, Indeed it is! I'm giving this album 3.5/5
WARMOUTH X CLOUDBURST: Nausea.. Sickens In..(Split Album, 2014)
WARMOUTH X CLOUDBURST: Nausea, Sickness and Death...
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

KAITZR - MYTH AND DECEIT EP(ORANGE CLIFF RECORDS 2015)
Exhilirating Dash of Trance
Tapping at number 2 in our recent music article, Kaitzr has spread their wings and devoution. Recently bought their EP album in Cassette tape format released by Orange Cliff Recordings. Design and Layout is done by the member of the band Bob Edrian T. Mastered by Adhit Android and recorded in MM Studio Bandung. A blood son of Earthless, Karma To Burn, they deeply channeling Stoner/Blues/Psychedelic portion, hazy, mysterious and makes you self wonder. Who the fuck is this so called "The Riverman". Recently on the road with Matiasu, Vrosk, Heast, and all the bad bad company "Sages of Haze Tour"
The EP only consists 2 Tracks but don't you worry, it's almost a 30 minute Psychedelia blues of jollification. It starts off with "The Riverman(Prologue)" a long winded guitar bending that could go on for minutes, subtle but then again that naughty rock side doesn't seem to let the psychedelic takes the spotlight, Constant and soaring. The length of the song may test the listeners patience but what the heck, who gives a damn anyway?
"The Damned(Epilogue)" This quite fittingly my favorite track of all, They stretching the length of blues into the infinity. Deeply finding this song is very, and frankly very interesting. Intense drumming and thrashing around while the guitar takes the throne.
Here's "Myth & Deceit" straight from their Soundcloud page.
Boston Based Heavy Metal/Hardcore League 'Doomriders' comeback with their latest new Album, features Blood, Sweat, Rage, and more Hard than the core. Hands up and fist pump. This is their 3rd Studio Album, after The successful of "Darkness Comes Alive" . Produced by Kurt Ballou, 'Darkness Comes Alive' was most to be told Shawn Bosler of Decibel magazine lauded the band's skilled songwriting, saying that "the stellar songwriting sounds like a well-honed band working together, stretching out the tunes and getting all ninja pyrotechnic on your ass." Now the New album is Out, will it carries on the Success? Let's Find out.

03. Mankind (2:45)
04. Grand Blood (3:48)
05. Bad Vibes (3:32)

08. We Live In The Shadows (4:42)
09. Gone To Hell (3:41)
10. Back Taxes (3:07)
11. Father Midnight (5:48)
Now don't get me wrong, you may find something really new to the band Blood vein, More characteristic, More Power. the ones that really pulls me out of my chair and banging my head was 'New Pyramids' they got this kinda like rock n roll shredding going on around it, more like a complicated mixtures of Awesomeness, plus Nate Newton vocals more added up to the track, Making it more Anger fueled, bloddy bad ass. 'Bad Vibes' were kinda Punk/Heavy Metal tune you always hear back in the days, Cool, It's like one of those Jogging soundtrack when suddenly you got chased by someone's dog. It's rockish punk heavy metal, Me Likey!. 'Death In Heat' Track starts of with something you familiar with doom bands, Big ass riff, slo mo's and weed. It's death rides southwards, Hot, and blooded, sweaty, and Riffy. Pounding your ear with those Doomriders based sounding tune, you can hear the Bass line like a Pure rage englightment, 'Back Taxes' it reminds me of Coliseum somehow, one of my favorite band too, Pure heavy punk combine with hardcore heavy metal DNA, what can you get? A Hardcore heavypunk soundtrack, back to the jogging again! 'Mankind' was kinda The Ocean like intro, only it's a bit more than just Tech metal, it still have Doomriders main DNA. not much to say actually. 'Dead Friends' was one of Nate song about their deceased fellow friends, He said, "I didn't want it to be sad, I wanted it to be a celebration. I'm not going to sugar coat it. It's sad. But you can't spend your whole life in grief."About the lose theme of Grand Blood, Newton said, "The record focuses on getting older and dealing with death and all the responsibilities I was shirking most of my life. It's about looking in the mirror and taking responsibility."'Gone To Hell'Is maybe one of the most song that features Nate didn't scream, Nate was singing about grief, pain & death. 'We Live In The Shadows' darkness themed this band, So this is my favorite track, one from the many, it straighten up the Term and the Identity of 'Doomriders' itself. 'Father Midnight' It's like one of those Post-Metal song reminders, headbanging Addict will made this into one of their Main playlist. Interesting. Rage really does much of the album, Blood and pain does the trick. 'Grand Blood' was intruigingly magnificent, complex hardcore heavy metal. shreddin bass tune, axe killing with the guitar, and Blood massacre. I'm giving 'Grand Blood' 3.5/5
SANDRIDER: "GODHEAD" IS RIFF FUELED AND PUMMELING DOWN UNDER!
SANDRIDER: "GODHEAD" IS RIFF FUELED & PUMMELING DOWN UNDER
It's Fucking Sick!
Rock Panache, Thrash Apocalyptic, Sandrider Is a band really not to be underestimated with, Straight from the Lineage of the Mighty AKIMBO itself, Put us in the Realm between Two worlds Sludge Metal and Stoner. Straight up from Seattle, these guys have been on the radar of my Favorite Stoner/Sludge Metal Band, On the bloodlines Nirvana, Melvins and Soundgarden molded into one. Jon Weisnewski(Guitarist) and Nat Damn(Drummer) was in the cutthroat Heavweight Champions 'Akimbo', While the Bassist Jesse Roberts was in a Prog Punk The Ruby Doe & Kid Kongo Powers. Sandrider itself already evolve themselves from their previous album back in 2011, in this album they've become More energetic, exploring, and lastly becoming more Awesome, so let's get to bits and tits shall we.
Still in the hands of Matt Bayles(Isis, Mastodon, The Sword, Tragedy), "Godhead" is a Gun blazing Northstar in the Stoner Rock world. Going out via Good To Die Records, these guys are unfuckable, Not to mention they have their own Unique way to be bad asses. So the album was made after Akimbo announce it's break up, so the guys focused on making 2nd Sandrider album. I must say this album is really Need to be in a Car Chase Movie, I mean listen to "Gorgon" It's fucking ripping your ears of your head, blasting all around like a Clint Eastwood shit was starting to get down on the block, and It's suddenly becoming my favorite album of the year. Heck yeah! why not? I mean "Ruiner" was Pounding, Stomps, Claps, Sensitively making my earbuds Bleeding. Eargasm was achieved. "Scalpel" oh don't get me started with that. That there is a master piece, My favorite track. Groove down with the beat. Vocal harmonies was Ill-fitting, making me flirting with my music stereo actually. "Godhead" Really the progressions of the new era of Bad Asses, Awesomeness, I can say Portland, Oregon very own Red Fang should have a Split album with this guys. Splitting my head in half with this Godhead shit. Powerful Indeed. I'm Giving (4.5/5)
