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
Here's some sample tracks for you to listen, go to their bandcamp to hear more:
I'm giving this album,
Red Fang: "An Nightmare Opera, Specializes In Halloween With Whales & Leeches"
"WHALES & LEECHES" by Red Fang
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
2. Blood Like Cream
3. No Hope
4. Crows In Swine
5. Voices Of The Dead
6. Behind The Light
7. Dawn Rising
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
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

Now to the tracks, Here we go. "Black Stolen Boxes" is an Instrumental beating Pounding machine, Destructive and yet Elegant, Many sides of becoming A Post-Metal thing but it isn't. "Traffic Thriller" Was excellent, noises of compelling Intonation, "The Lethal Impression" is Mostly alike to be my favorite track from the album apart from Black Stolen Boxes, they've got those vibe that Making it a bit more "Powerfull" both endings and Intro. If you ask me naturally hell yes this is a good album, Impressive I Might say, Hearing this from Indonesia, "You Look Awkward" Seems a bit Post-Metal'ish Isis References, no matter. It sounds brilliant anyway, not that I'm sure of, This album Is a great way to spend in a New years Eve, same Like goes "Arcade". "Glare of Glowing City" and "M..A.D" are their first release and containing two of this tracks, No matter, sounds bad ass in an Elegant way. A Short thing to say, this album is fully equipped with your favorite Post-Rock Artist Genes, One of the best Releases in 2013, All I Can say I'm Giving This Album (4.5/5)
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

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
Jesu Amazing Comeback With "Everyday I Get Closer To The Light From Which I Came"
'Jesu Comeback With Soulgazing Post-Rock'ish Sounds'
Jesu Beautifully Comeback
Tracklist: 1. Homesick
4. The Great Leveller
5. Grey Is The Colour
The album will be released on 23 September 2013 Via Avalanche Recordings, Magnificent comeback, Godflesh main man Justin K. Broadrick completely making this album into my personal favorite lovable Everyday music Album, somehow it's reminded me of Anathema, don't know why. But after Jesu"Ascension" where in that album the full Post-Metal term was affliated so much, I got so tired. Then after I heard Jesu new Album "Every Day I Get Closer To The Light From Which I Came In" I was staggered. I love it, so much, It completely wins over me after I heard the Album. Completely I thought it was just another hard pounding music to the ear. But no, Jesu resides that, and tries to create more than just a simple music.
The new album feature's Dub, Electronic, and Post Punk in it, which is making it more colourful, Just listen to one of it's samples "Homesick" It was like always i said, mostly Excellent. It brings you joyous feeling in some kind of midst of weather, lies beneath a thick rugged guitar was tuned along. While in the 2nd "Comforter" track feature's Electronic kinda like Sigur Ros'ish which making me loving this album much more. It is so calm, and then turns into kinda like Battle themed war stories.Shining armor and Heroes risen from the ashes. This track really does have a mean, to comfort, and yes! it does comfort me along hearing this track. Well I found out in Fact Mag he album’s fourth track, the 17-minute ‘The Great Leveller’, is the only one to feature a player besides Broadrick – Nicola Manzan commands a one-person orchestra of strings. According to the album’s press release, “the song lyrically deals with the existential drain that is early parenthood, since Justin became a father for the first time just before beginning work on this LP” But I Still love it, I Adore that themed song. It welcomes me so much in my head. I Love it those atmospheric kinda like sad song. I was kinda soft person for this kinda song. and suddenly just fell in love with it. Overall through all the track I was more in love in this album than my love for my passion in sleeping. I'm giving this album a 4.5/5 , 'Grey is The Colour' Was a magnificent 4-Minute track, It's my favorite though besides the first track of the album.
Seringai: "Heavy Slaying Riffs and A Boaring Sound of a Madman" With "Taring"(Fangs)
Seringai: Heavy Metal, Alcohol and By God Holy Name, There's a Lot of Riffs.
Earwax, Earwax Everywhere.
I know, Looks like outdated, This album was released in 2012, so Basicly it was two years ago. but what the hell. I've been knowing these guys since I was in Junior High School. "Serigala Militia" the first Album that I've heard when these guys come Along. 2007 If I'm not mistaken, Bringing Heavy Metal to the masses. And yes, They make a huge impact. One of Indonesia finest Heavy Metal brethern. They already have 3 Albums. The first one is 'High Octane Rock', second 'Serigala Militia', third 'Taring'(Fangs), and Were here to talk about the New album 'Taring' which in English means "Fangs". Seringai is known for their combination between Heavy Metal, Alcohol and a fuck lot of Riffs, Their artwork is basicly include Skulls and Fangs reminding you of Pushead back in the days. A Quartet Heavy Metal Brigade from Jakarta. Combining Stoner Rock hardened riffage and Loud as fuck, Motorhead style. Lemmy would be proud. Arian on Vocals, Ricky on Guitar, Sammy on Bass and Khemod on Drums. Now the Album
The track starts of with 'Canis Dirus' a glimmering resonation of an acoustic guitar. Western stuff, John Wayne on the background. and the Strumming began to blending in. Seeing horizons in the west, basicly this Intro is. And when the guitar solo Kicks in. Everything Changed. "Dilarang Di Bandung" was on set, Pedals, Bass, Riffs, and Boom!. Let me visualize the song. It's like riding a Goddamn Chopper and Shooting bad guys left and Right. A Purely breed of Sonic Heavy Metal right in the Nuts. Earwax guys, Play it on High volume to feel the vibe. The third one is a bit more merrier, a combination of Orange Goblin and Kvelertak, but still having those Riff laden flare. Now the next one is favorite one. "Fett, Sang Pemburu" or you can say "Fett, The Hunter" A tale for the Galaxies Most Bad Ass Bounty Hunter. 'Boba Fett', yes, you heard me said it. A Tribute to the Hunter. It's like a Soundtrack for War this album is. Jesus Christ, there's a lot of riffs dude. I mean a lot.
"Tragedi" and "Infiltrasi" are basicly the Prom Queen in this album, Indulging Headbanging to the masses. Caution this album may cause blowing your earhole. The more higher volume you put does make a Difference. "Gaza" a Instrumental track which filled with Beers and Heavy Rock. You can hear the the pounding, and the Grief. Actually in my Opinion believe this song is About the conflict in Gaza, Palestine. It's been going on for a while tho', but I don't know, it's just my opinion actually. In the middle of the song you can hear when the Acoustic guitar comes in, somehow reminding me of Baroness. Oh such sweet joy this album is. There's a correllation between the sweet part and the heavy part.
There are so many reasons, Why I think this one of Indonesia most Influential band. If you haven't get their album be sure to get it. You live regretting your life. Cheers. I'm giving it (4.0/5.0)
