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:
Metrum Tan Samar
V R O S K
Photos By: Maternal Disaster
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
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I know, Looks like outdated, This album was released in 2012, so Basicly it was two years ago.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)
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
"DOOM DANCE" That's their title for their EP album, Matiasu consist Duo Stoner/Doom Metal members, Their References goes to Serpentine Path, Moss, Electric Wizard, Sleep and Of course the Holy Legendary Godfather of Heavy Metal Black Sabbath himself. Released via An Sonic Boom Record label Coventry from the Darkness glimpse of an a Could see A.K.A Sonicfuneral Recordings who works with Dark parts of life such as Wicked Suffer, And Asangata. 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
SSSLOTHHH: Sludge Metal Retaliation With "Phenomenon"
SSSLOTHHH: Sludge Metal Retaliation With "Phenomenon"
"Chopping Down Legs Since the Beginning"
SSSLOTHHH, For short known as an animal "Sloth", In the past I've been interviewing these guys back in the days, Their recent release was an EP titled "Infinite Fracture", Check out the press release here(Infinite Fracture EP). If you wanna see our Previous Interview Encounter check outhere(A Post Metal Atmosphere Ready To Engaged), Now their latest release is now entitled "Phenomenon", kinda think of it. It may sounds really Pop culture Album titled, yeah, me too. But wait until you see the Material these guys put in, Some References from Mouth Of The Architect, Russian Circles, The Ocean, Full of beatdown national anthem, Sludge filled. And hatred Written. Some guys from bandung Doomish outcast DAUD members are working in the making of this album, Bandung Chaos hell maker Frontman from ALICE, And so does VROSK members are include in the Process. Now Let's begin shall we.
Here's a taste from their Album, 'Distance'
The track begins with a full pounding attack from "Above And Below", Blown intro from the beginning, even though somehow I feel the vocals isn't right enough, I just assume that they sums it up in this album, and even if it's feels like your forcing it too much, It's sounds great anyway. The Next track "Oracle" it was one of my most favorite tension grilling between the ground beneath, they've got those Metallic and steel Concrete brick thrown into your face, Reminds you of Pelican though in the early days. Tough as nails, Botch and Poison the Well combination. "Distance" and "Squence" are both dynamic tension, well ridden Intonation, a outburst of carnage and emotion blaring into one another. Pretty well to getting the total clarity and getting the Post-Metal Cross over on Sludge Metal, "Thief of Sleep" and "Squence"Are a perfect match of combination, DAUD & ALICE makes a good taste of stuff indeed, growling, snorting, spits and death of perfection was at sight. I'm giving this album (3.5/5)
KAITZR - MYTH AND DECEIT EP(ORANGE CLIFF RECORDS 2015)
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.
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, someSamsara 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.
