SOMNIUM: BLACK CAMPAIGN(ORANGE CLIFF 2015)

SABBATH IS STOOGING THE DOORS

7 Tracks on repeat

Another marvelous combination in the world of music, Warning, this is not that Melodic Hard Rock Band Somnium band from the New England, this is a different type. Somnium is a psychedelic fused low tuned sabbath stooges doors combustion, with a trio line up of devastating proportion from Bandung, West Java. Peformed in 7 tracks debut album, and released by the infamous Bandung Based sub-genre label Orange Cliff Records. This album is mastered by Jack Control in Austin Texas(Enourmous Door Studio). Cryptid, raw, and lo-fi deliquents, they're bringing back reference from psychedelic of The Doors, raw ness of groove by The Stooges, and the amplifying rock anthem of Black Sabbath. But, there is more than what meets the eye. They combined some fuzz desert stoner punk rock/garage/blues hormones and inject them into their very own dna. Holy shit, that's a lot to take in..




"Black Campaign" this terms is usually being used in politics and elections. Despicable and maniacal, this defines Somnium to what they are. Their haze of vocals beatdown rocknroll blues garage crescendo tuning into your ears, that my friend is "Putrefaction" a sexy anthem swinging around the corner and drinking that jack, smoke some of that blunt weed while walking under the so called City Lights. In the end there is this sudden change of punk rock/garage rhythym.



"Morbid Dependecy", this how you handle things in the wild west. If Clint Eastwood was around when this came out in The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, this is the original score for the film soundtrack. The tequila was poured down unto the sonic throbbing fused speaker. Making that riff mating with some coyotes. "Pigs", maybe is one of those tracks when you trying to fuck shit up while in a traffic jam, or getting chased by frickin pigs. You can't hear anything actually due to the thickness of that hazy vocals but who gives a damn fuck, it's all about that riff. This was used as their single from this upcoming album. Positive feedbacks were given.

"Barbaric Transition" was a knock out desert garage blues rock session, some Samsara Blues Experiment effect combined with that Blues Pills and Goat down tempo mofo, they are changing their lanes in the progress. "Black Campaign" is a trench low core fillet of pure grilled vertical barbaric riff mounted blues notes. Those Lowrider anti-depressants are working well for an stupendous debut album.






I'm giving this album

4.2/5

((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

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

  4. Hallucination

Picture by Kvltmagz

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.

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

Mastodon: Sit Back, Relax, We're going to the Sun, Again.

Mastodon: A Blast of With "Once More 'Round The Sun"


Marvelous, Just Marvelous.

Mastodon, a creature, beast. Bigger than the Mammoth in the Ice Age. It's been a while since we're expecting more than these guys, but let me tell you, this album will surely knocks you off your seats. The Artwork is done by Skinner, I've seen his other works, and I gotta hand it to the guy, It looks hellish as hell. and I liked it. Produce my the one and Only Nick Raskulinecz. In this new album the boys will redeem themselves. After "The Hunter" the boys seems to be trying to make a comeback, and oh boy, what a comeback. I don't mean I hate "The Hunter" tho', there are some tracks that I really liked from that Album, and by far as I see it, Some of "The Hunter" elements are presence in this new album. Sure, yeah each Mastodon albums exists in a different place and Elements, but the main thing is, The guys capable of bringing back a bigger and more powerful works after that. There's a lot of rock going on in this album, so buckle up those seatbelts, it'gonna be a bumpy ride.






The album starts off with "Tread Lightly" a resonance strumming with an acoustic guitar, one of my favorite track also. Troy bass lines in this track is absolutely knocks down hard, A Steel knock off first base this track is. "Open your eyes, Take a Deep breath and return to Life" a glimpse of the lyrics. It seems a Resurrection was at hand, simply trying put off how they manage to make it all whole again. Brent starts shredding everything suddenly pops. "The Motherload" is a edgy confident beat, Brann vocals emerges from the depths, sweet and monstrously perfect, 'This time, This time,  things work out just fine' and my oh my, It surpass the word fine. Entering another dimension, a portal to another time and place, and got trapped in it. Progressive Rock elements were present, and being fused by the existing Psychedelic atmosphere. "High Road" it's one of their single, A Blunt battering ram, full of Sludge Hardened steel Riffs that capable taking down the all of the Madison Square. "Remission" particle was veery dominant in this track, It's a severe hit, a Rigorous triumphant. "Chimes of Midnight" a compelling lucid dreaming psychedelia trip into the solar system, Percussions everywhere, full of riffs that swarms right and tight, "All my heroes, they're all dead" one of Troy lines that I've heard in this track gives me the chills. A formidable stiff Melody. "Asleep In The Deep" yeah, I know, I get the chills too, It kinda reminds us of some Kvelertak'ish notes, Valient Himself and a Keyboardist Isaiah Owens who mainly known for his works with The Mars Volta, Jack White, etc. Take parts in this track. "Feast Your Eyes" a blummering beatdown of riffs and throat roarinng. Might and Melody walking in the same line holding hands mugging people in the streets basicly this track about. Jumping off cliffs and burning down bridges. "Aunt Lisa", the gangs from the The Coathangers and Gary Lindsey participate in this track. This song is like a Psychedelic Nightmare interpretation. Creepy.




"Ember City" this is my favorite track mostly from this album, filled with many Percussions that Leave you jaw dropping, Guitar shredding that makes you going too different Places, and Heavy choruses that looks like hitler is Preaching on stage. It's a snazzy prog rock attack, Sweet and hard at the same time.  Lurking down beneath your spine. You don't like metal? but you'll just love Mastodon. "Halloween", Fast weilding blade runner on the loose trying to beat all the kids in halloween, It's kinda a crime chase session we got here. Striking you on your knee, a Wallop full of Punches, Beatdowns, Riffs that Stronger than Meth, It's Bizzare freakish beat I tell you that. "Diamond In The Witch House" a Sinister song that filled with hatred surge and blasting sonic guitar shredding, 'Neurosis' very own Scott Kelly took part in this track, a Spine-chilling blow and thrust into our ears and hearts. Once again they outdone themselves, couldn't be more happier. They took their listeners into another Dimension, into another Solar System, and There are Creepy stuffs crawling and lurking in space, they aren't afraid to show it.

In this album, they filled it with a brim of a new aspects, It's a menacing destructive desolate anthems from these Atlanta Giants, Mercurial Prog rock, they branches off into a new Element. They've outdone themselves. Am Uplifting lean hard rock beatdown. I'm giving it (4.5/5.0)
