Poison Nova - Circle of Woe EP(Lawless Records 2015)

Know God, No Fear, No God, Know Fear

Slamming Adrenaline Pulse 

Bleak, void, and hollow. An interpretation of what you've expect from these Melodic/Heavy/Black Metal enthusiast. I've seen them 2 years ago, In 2013, a split album with Bvrtan. 12 Tracks both bands are a promising sample of a magnificent resemblance of Black  Metal music. But now, none of that matters. Sure, some tracks in the EP was in the split album but who cares. Misanthropic and devastating charging violently with devoution to bands such as Watain, Immortal, God Dethroned, Mayhem, and Burzum, we could go on for a long stretch of line... Poison Nova alters their combination into a combustion of heavy charging black metal fury. Released by Lawless Records this year 2015, approximately a couple months ago, cover artwork done by Devilreject who've done works bands such as Devildriver, Chimaira, Skeletonwitch,etc. The context of the booklet filled with photographs of skulls by Dinda Advena. Design by Arian A. and layout by Herry S, and.. mostly some page is just darkness mingling around.


Starts off the title track "Circle Of Woe" a cycle of grief, despair and death. You can tell much information about an album just looking from the title and the cover art. Monolithic cries of frenzy and that blast beat drum patterns, is a reminiscent of a classic death and rattle theme, this song is really not the one you should be playing in Easter. "Wounds of Gaza" a tale of how earth is fed up eating blood and flesh created by the living things that lived in there, Exhilirating lurid sounds, shifting chords and all out cries of apathy. It's supposed to a sad song then again I forgot that this a black metal album. It is a sad theme album but how they said it changes the whole thing immediately. 

"The Curse of An Everlasting Search" an instrumental ambient noise with guitars, love those mist thin layered vocals hovering mid-air in the song, couldn't really hear it. "Anthem From Black Heart" Traditional black metal blast beat was interesting, but adding the deathmetal pedal beats was amazing. Pulzerising shifting notes and keys neatly put and add on. Not too much or too little. "Silent Wolves Howling Moon" this one is on youtube in 2013. Creeping death and shivers down your spine when you heard this lyrics "The sun will perish with eternal cold damnation" all of the sudden a post apocalyptic place were live in right now. "Pagan Blood" Features in our recent music article "10 Bands you Should Hear Before Hitting Puberty" tapping at number 6. 



Please don't really turn all things go black, It's pretty damn hard to read the lyrics.. with all things aside here's an official video from the track "Silent Wolves Howling Moon"
 




Were giving this album

4.2,5/5

A STORM OF LIGHT - NATIONS TO FLAMES

A STORM OF LIGHT :  "Nations To Flames

"A Flame Grilling Metal Indeed"

Yes, yes, I'm so happy. Okay, As you know Josh Graham(Neurosis Visual Collaborator) fronted Doom/Post-Metal/Heavy Metal is back. Pouring some sweat blooded fire reign upon you're ghastly looking ears. And I mean they're really kicking asses right now, these guys really put their back into it.  In this album the Guys really prepared for a full scaled Heavy Grim Like Metal,  it's like getting your head bashed into a Concrete steel. Anyway let's crack on to the album shall we.

"Nations To Flames" Was released via Southern Lord Recordings, Whom we know owned by the notorius Goatsnake Guitarist Mr. Greg Anderson, Nations To Flames was recorded with Travis Kammeyer (OCOAI, Generation Of Vipers) at Fahrenheit Studios in Johnson City, Tennessee,mixed with Matt Bayles (Isis, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Botch, Mastodon) at Red Room Recording in Seattle, Washington and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon. What a line up of people who are working with ASOL in this album, 11-track opus includes Soundgraden’s Kim Thayil and Indian/Nachtmystium’s Will Lindsay on select tracks. My god What can you get more from this album. Okay let's see

 A STORM OF LIGHT "NATIONS TO FLAMES"
 
The track starts off with "Fall" Heavy Metal  Opera was really took it's toll, one of the most favorite track for my prespective, Rage, power, And Riffage Does Prevail. Same goes for the guitar crippling on "Apostles of Hatred" Heavy fueled Metal,  It's like you can still hear the how they put things in orderly, Like the boys really made it. They made my ear Came! They really throw out the "Post" Term out of the way, Graham really did it. I Mean following the success of their past album "As The Valley Of Death Become Us, Our Silver Memories Fade"
Nonetheless, I Cannot say, the album was really worth it. Mr. Graham Lyrics dig down upon the song Theme itself, I Mean really like Hatred was Turning into a Musical Masterpiece, Follow Up with "The Fire Sermon" It's like black metal'ish tune, then go slowly trying to cut your legs off. I mean, Come on? this is the best album I've heard since Neurosis "Honor Found In Decay" . Overall the band really features new stuff, Like really going in to the hard part instead being post-metal'ish. And I must say. This Is The True Identity of "A Storm Of Light" They are rage fueled, Hatred maker, From "Omen", "Disintegrate" , "Lifeless" This is what this band is all about. I'm giving 4.5/5

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

  2. Cult of Serpent

  3. Doom Dance

  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. 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

Avhath - "Eulogy" EP Exclusive Premiere + Upcoming Tour Dates

Filth from the Night

Fright and Extremity

Sounds from the night, Avhath retains their throne of the dark with this upcoming "Eulogy EP". This is a follow up from their past release EP "Une Generation Perdue" 2 years ago on cassette format. They have just released a single recently in 2014, Christmas themed song "Frightened Teeth". Joyful and Merry. But now, We're not to talk about that. "Eulogy EP" will be released in 7" Format on 18 April Record Store Day 2015 in Indonesia. Features 2 New tracks and 1 Bonus track from their very first single "Catch 22". They also will be kicking off their Java tour with Disfare, yes promoting their upcoming split album together on the road. Tour Dates are down below. 



AVHATH - EULOGY 7" PREVIEW




"Eulogy EP" was devastating sonic boom with an epic proportion, Avhath has surely sharpened their blade and pike, they step their game up another level, go deeper and deeper. They point themselves into a higher aim, delirous and amped with power. They didn't let it out to waste. Songs like "Eulogy I" was a facebreaker they never retain that crust punk provokeness. Even though it seems they may a bit shift their way out to another type of control. "Eulogy II" is a pounding downfall. You know something about Black Metal, it's not always about complete destruction. Sometimes it's a deep growth potential of things, rather than just blasting around and destroying anything. There's an Energy in it.

Here's the upcoming Tour Dates with Disfare:




Disfare / Avhath  Java Tour 2015
 
4/18/2015 – Bandung at Kana Studio
4/19/2015 – Jakarta at Record Store Day 2015 (AM) + Café  Mondo (PM)

4/24/2015 – Solo at (TBA)
4/25/2015 – Kediri (TBA)
4/26/2015 – Surabaya (TBA)


Here's Avhath - "EULOGY EP"(3 Tracks will play continously, so please enjoy, say no to skipping)


We're Giving this album

4.2/5

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)
