Reports from the field: Grieving The Earth #7

Cheerless & Dejected meets the Lighthearted

Grieving The Earth #7: 


It was thursday night, thursday night was taco night for me and I was planning to watch Michael Buble live, but in this case, exceptions can be made. The show was held in Rossi Musik Fatmawati, Grieve Records. 6 bands are lining up in the tray, and people stacking up their merchandise upfront to be sell off. The show starts at 7.20 P.M, there was Dental Surf Combat, Bed Chamber, Barefood, Deathless, Gerram, and headlining in Ora Iso.



 

Dental Surf Combat was first on the showcase line up, I haven't really know much about this band. This is first time seeing these guys live. They play furious punk rock, with an aggresive Fuck you attitude, lyrics are basicly social issues or is it? Kids On The Move, Nervous Breakdown, Bones Brigade, and blend mixture of Jokes and a rapid harsh vocal linguistic maybe that's what describe how DSC sound like.The funny thing along the show is They play this riff part of the famously Guns & Roses guitar shredding 'Sweet Child O'mine' and Metallica's 'Enter Sandman', fast paced and deliriously entertaining. Upnext was Bed Chamber. I was blown away by how they sound playing live. Joyful, energetic, fun, and soft. Crushing course between Smoking Popes, Best Coast, and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Maybe they too crossover a little shoegaze in motion. But nontheless it was really an enjoyable moment. They covered Blink 182 song with a band member from DSC. Weird? heck no!
 

DSC(Dental Surf Combat)


 



Bed Chamber



Barefood, an Indie/alternative rock, These trio step their edge up a knotch. I've heard them in their recent E.P, they played their new song from their upcoming album, cranked and a canned rock way tune session, they heat up the crowd with zizzle guitar solo, craze of sour and sweet it's a pretty nice balance if you ask me. "Sullen" breaks out and the audience go nuts, everyone was dancing and wave surfing. An Indie/alternatice rock catchy anthem, songs theme in on out from love to sadness.
 




BAREFOOD

Deathless was there on cause of their recent new album in the rise. 'Polyarchy', Slow seasoned, drone, ambient and blurry. Deathless once was a one man band, seeing them in 4 format people makes me really nervous, dribbling doom and fritz static feedbacks and noise. Everyone love that fat thick bass sound and the fanned down tempo guitar tune. Plugging almost 45 minutes length Deathless soar their instrumental acid drone/doom wings in Rossi. Gerram, after the sucess of  'Genderang Bencana' album, they spark a little tour in java, ferocios and violent, Gerram lighting up the room like it's 17 august, Heat and steam, Sweat and noise collide into motion, southern hostility sounding off from the guitar, and the no clean singing part. Snarl, growls and spit, are Gerram vitae to attracts the motion. Hardcore punk fury, distorted and deep loud movement.

Gerram


Ora Iso
is a two personnel Experimental/Noise/Post/Industrial band from Brooklyn, New York, Kathleen Delay, and Jason Kudo(Modra). 'Bathcat' a title from their recent record release. Creepy,Throbbing, and exciting,these funeral Industrial duo rivet their way up from the second they play, continously appearing very very deluded, fearsome, and deadly. Heavily distorted sound, a bauhaus - guitar tone and combine effects with the yellow dim light shade makes them even more uneglected to the eyes. If you dig Throbbing Gristle, Godflesh, and Les Rallizes Denudes, then Ora Iso is definetly fit much as character you're meaning to search.

Some Of The Tracks From The Howling Wind - Of Babalon, It's Unimaginably Unique And Very Intense Heavy Noise. And Very Different To The Whole Black Metal Society. But This Shit Is Still Of The Hook

Exclusive Single Premiere "Schizophrenia" by Black//Hawk

Black//Hawk: God's Cold Hands

All Wounds Aside


If you're thinking this is the American Rock Country Blackhawk, your in the wrong place my friend. Black//Hawk is a riveting hardcore sludge punk dbeat, that lurks beneath the footsteps of Converge, Nails, His Hero Is Gone, Tragedy, and APMD. These young bloods from the south decided to carve their own spark on the history calendar, they will be releasing their Upcoming  EP next year by Rimauman Music and Blacksheep Recordings.

 "Schizophrenia" is a hard pounding dbeat drum anthem, the bass are deep, distorted and very very mean. They thrashes powers chords and hell of a buzzsaw of raw beatdown background. They brutaly living up to the true course of an abrasive sludge, and a ramming speed of hardcore punk, so if you dig these unrelenting relentless breathers you better be on guard next year.


Here's "Schizophrenia"

These Atmospheric black metal/crust bad boys carved their name to their heirloom. They ripped skies and make them bleed fire, based in Cipanas, West Java.

Kaitzr soon rose to be a bloodson between Earthless and Karma To Burn, their song "The Riverman(Prologue)" achieve to be our next big thing list, slow and seasoned mid life serenity, then hits riffing you hard in the head with a frickin three rusty crowbars. The five flower travellin band is revved to mark their seed on your ear.


 


3. Warmouth




Trio knife battling guns blazing Hardcore Punk/Crust by the entertaining Warmouth, boys of Yogyakarta takes their throne to the new level as they gunned down every single pop culture with their fast changing hardcore punk riffs, heresy of Nails and Entombed. The death metal riveting through your inner spine. They make afterlife looked good with hardcore punk aficionados. Here's from their recent split with Cloudburst, "No Salvation"

 

4. True Hell




Rigged with a bomb trigger, these Metallic Hardcore/Crust martyr from Depok, is ready to do some Jihadist actions. They triggered earthquakes and explosions. Under guidance from  Trap Them, Converge, YAITW. They marked our calendars with miscellanous blood lines, their music is hard driven, confidence, dark and shallow. Infused with bludgeoning and rage they soon rose to the top of foodchain. "Aphrehensive of Fear" from their recent release "Deliverance"



5. Deathless




It's not been really clear, all that we know that this band is a one man from Bandung, an avant grande/Doom/Drone fiesco, Dealing with rigged amps of doom.

7. Taring



Bandung hardcore brigade, playing it beatdown and unsettling, after their recent album "Nazar Palagan" came out, many positive feedbacks were given. Mean and Intimidating, Sing it like no other and destorying it viciously, aggresive misanthropic combustion mechanical. This isn't just another music playing along, the creed of Pantera, Crowbar and Sick Of It All filled in their muddy waters. Deadly and sharp, that is what Taring all about.

9. Heast



They landed to be one of our best albums in 2015, they're like a rare breed of horses running in the field of Psychedelic. "The Wanderer" is their cornerstone to gain greater boundaries, they made themselves pretty clear with all of those guitar shredding and dynamic amps tone, We all like that Earthless, Kyuss, Graveyard, and Blue Cheer vibe. Nothing can never be wrong with that. Smoldering cosmic tunes are steadily fanned, not all out sound effects in the intro, electrostatic ambience are playing parts in this magnificent album. Bantha's, Dewbacks, Tusken Raiders and deserts storms. Who could ask more?

10. Black//Hawk



Static trance of dismobility and darkness by these youngbloods from the south, carving their claw in the caves of sludge and despair, Black//Hawk caught our scent. dipping cold blood with Hessian, And Converge, their southern distorted and intimidating presence knocks our guard defenseless. Down tuned sludge centers in with this boys, brutal and entertainingly fantastic, they will be releasing an EP this year. So here's "Schizophrenia"

MOTHERS VS METAL
Ever wonder what is to be like, when you're mother seeing you listening to Heavy Metal Music, Punk Rock, Hardcore, Metalcore Music? her Face Will be more likely to be this way, with pointy fingers, and blabbering mouths

Mothers -_-

 
 This is just outrageous, I on the other hand, suffer the same way with the kid in the picture. the First time I heard my "Rock" Almost kinda like music. I was dancing like a complete Idiot. I was so enjoyed with the music that I didn't realize what was happening. Well the first thing my mother said was "Are you autistic?" ...  I know. A bit bummer, a young kid like me in the edge of puberty, Popularity, and many more were said to be an autistic. Anyway As a kid I Find Heavy Metal Music a bit complex, due to many amounts of Music Artist that my mother said were, Satanists, Gays, Pedophilliac assholes, And Full of Hedonistic Pricks. I resulted that my mother was a concern about me and my hobby in the This "Music" part of the world. Eight years later, I find what my mother said about Metal Music was Right, well 'Almost' of it. Long hair, scary faces, black T-shirt, Beards, I know for mothers it's a Freddie from Nightmare Street, Creepy, But For mothers out there, Metal music makes your son not look like Wimp in school(Meaning you're son not always being bullied by fat rich children that looks like Colonel sanders from KFC), I know drugs, free sex, weed, and many more Negative Lifestyle isn't what you're mother want for you but I Finally found the solution with this problem, with just a bit of going in to the toilet. The best place for finding and inspiration.

"Loving a Certain Kind Of Music Genre, That Always Being Clouded With Negative Views By Parents, Sucks big Time. but I know How to make that Cloud to go away, Which Of Course needed all of Media help to Make sure that, "METAL" is not a Dangerous word for Parents. Remember, Loving A Music Genre, And Following every Step of it, Doesn't mean you have to love the Lifestyle as well"
