BLACK//HAWK: SELF TITLED EP(2015)

Southern Young Blood Retaliation

Outwitted and outnumbered




From the minds of a pale law abiding citizen, Black//Hawk puts their aim a little higher. These five southern quartet recently premiered their single teaser for this upcoming S/T EP titled "Schizophrenia". Released by Blacksheep Recordings and Rimauman Music. We think that this album is a bit Muddy, Noise, Feedback, Raw, and Sludge-blatantly face to face dirt en-visioned with a little d-beat/crust punk essence and that abrasive Mike IX Williams vibe vocals, Non-theless being Executive Produced by Farid Amriansyah who put some of his vocals layout in the album, mastered and mixed by Jimmy(AD Studio) and a cover album art by GOORM.







Six gritty back to back tracks, as we said before, it was gritty, raw, and full dirt loathe. Songs like "Doppelgangers" is an apparition of ourselves, there are not a lot of rooms to make variations, but thats okay, I consider this is more like a an aggresive sludge-waste beatdown, Ethical and Thrashers in with manner of contempt not to be interfere with. "Schizophrenia" is the prom Queen on all of this pale and despair themed album, Charging with a buzzsaw of punk rock fury, they bleed their artery and carry on with it. The bass lines in this album represents some nasty shit of mean, it's Intimidating in a weird way after being fused in with the feedback. 


"Nervous Breakdown" 
No, it's not that Black Flag song. Rhythmic aggresiveness continues flowing ferociously like pack of rabid dogs. It's a predictable tune if you can compete. "III(Beige Menjadi Hitam)" starts launching in with frustrating of scream and lunging in to this sludge ritted in. "Rinela" is all about that bass, deep, distorted, mean and intimidating. Plus those amplified beatdown feedback note descending on the throne. Sure, there is a moment when the brutality stands down a let the moment of soundscaping begin, they restrained their inner beast "Final Ending" is a bit post-ish ambient creepy atmosphere clouding in around you, Misanthropic and pre-emptive. 





We're Giving this 3.0/5

VROSK: "WORLD COLLAPSE/METRUMTANSAMAR" DEMO

V R O S K: "Doom Sludge Drone Sensation After First Bite"

"Furious Doom On, Sludge On Term This Band is"

Hailing from bandung, these guys Condemned theirselves with Drone/Doom/Slugde DNA. Reminded us that there is still a Hell beneath our rugged foot. "World Collapse/Metrum Tan Samar"  Demo Feature's 4 Track Of Drone Sludge Bloodgeoning  Here's the Track list & The boys who are behind Vrosk:






VROSK
  • World Collapse
  • Metrum Tan Samar
  • Mammoath
  • Untitled
 

 

V R O S K

Photos By: Maternal Disaster
  • AGAN AHSAN(VOICE)
  • ASHARI PANJI(DRUMS)
  • AOKI SETIAWAN(VISUALS)
  • DEATHLESS RAMZ(GUITARS)
  • FIRMAN OKTAVIAWAN(GUITAR, BASS)





 
Now let's see how the music is actually, the band really knocked their way out, the 1st track 'World Collapse' Is a full on description how our beloved world collapse, destroyed, and the guys illustrate how it would be, A Drone racketting around earholes really gets to you somehow 9 minutes of lone longing in demolishing your inner spirit within, Vrosk Endure the world destruction and set off to do some more damage. "Metrum Tan Samar" was sludge beating Doom Ignition to world annihilation. it is slow, crippling your feet within, really a beatdown amongst the living, you can't really hear how it turns out actually, I don't know. It sounded so Dark, and damp. 'Mammoath' really describe like a living creature who walks the earth in loneliness, like a dark walking Mammoth who survived the aftermath, it's slow and pounding, remind you somehow of Lee Dorian's 'Cathedral' . They don't really knock the door when to enter, Vrosk break the fucking door and blast your arse with a full on Sludge Doom Shotgun shells, simply Staggering indeed. 'Untitled' sounds like an emptiness glows within the dark reign forest, like a creature lurking behind the bushes, trees, trying to hunt down those who survived the post-apocalypse. Hardcore like beat combined with slow doom riffage really. Some musical influences are too being inserted in this dark themed band, some like Post-rock'ish tune sometime you heard in the track, mainly all the track are all instrumental. A Plus for this themed destruction Producers. I'm giving 3.5/5

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)

Dooming On With Matiasu's "Doom Dance"

-Heavy Riffs from The Subtropical Lands


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

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.

PELICAN: "FOREVER BECOMING"

PELICAN: "Forever Becoming"

"Post - Instrumental Boys Are Pounding Their Way Out"

Oh yes, After succesfully With their "Ataraxia/Taraxis EP" The boys are back, Producing some more musical Influences to their New Album "Forever Becoming". Some metalcore you might hear on the song, some low, slow, beat are in the gene of these Post-Metal Instrumental Band Hailing from Illinois. After recently announced an amicable split with guitarist and founding member Laurent Schroeder-Lebec. Schroeder-Lebec had not been touring with the band for the prior two years, with Dallas Thomas of The Swan King performing live in his stead, but not participating in the writing process. The album will be released on October 15, 2013 through Mr. Greg Anderson "Southern Lord Records". Forever Becoming was produced by Chris Common, formerly of "These Arms Are Snakes", who also previously produced Pelican's 2009 studio album, What We All Come To Need
Pelican Outfit in this Album is more Balanced, Between the soft parts and the hard parts, somehow this is not like How the old Pelican used to be, their exploring new territories in the music, In the Track "Deny The Absolute" It's not like how the old pelican used to be, Somehow they balanced their way out. Surely if you compare it to Other Tracks in other Pelican album you'll know the difference, They're just not slow, instrumental beat, Like many other bands, The guys really made this into An Intelligent Music. Somehow I'm really quite fond with this new Album, they really make it look promising. I mean 8-tracks of Completely Awesome Instrumental Music Pounding in your ear you could resonate the music itself. Like Pelican becoming more Complex, And More Metal than ever, Listen to "Immutable Dusk" There's a part when the music really gets goosebumps on your skin, It's just really great to be hearing this band again. My most favorite is "Threnody" you really gets the sense of feeling being haunted by somekind of dark-past memories and then Came out the Pelican sign in tone.

They just don't go for pure power on guitar and drums, they feel the heartbeat of the music too, the way how it's used to be, They absorbs the atmosphere within the music itself, like somehow their soul was attached to the Pelican itself which is, very very Staggering indeed. Completely blown my mind off Forever Becoming, What an Amazing album Indeed. 4.3/5

KAITZR - MYTH AND DECEIT EP(ORANGE CLIFF RECORDS 2015)

Intoxicating Devolvement

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.




We find this album is very Sexy.

5/5
