Raw Black Noise
Americans and their labels. This band from central Florida says in their press release that they play “a volatile combination of hardcore and sludge metal as well as elements of harsh noise.” I can only concur with the harsh noise statement.
This band is indeed an experimental harsh black noise that utilizes white noises and funeral doom metal, trespassed by fastest parts to make their point.
The strangeness is very akin to Circle of Ouroborus from Finland.
The harsh noise parts are what I would call a genius work. They play between one song and another (there are four of them) always linking the unimaginable world of occult terror with a distorted reality.
But calling themselves a “volatile” group opens up other possibilities of experimental. I’m not against that. I against the very fact that a band that can be the forerunners and pathfinders of a new style, wind up being an extension of ISIS, Cult of Luna and Sun o))). Even if they have this influences is good, but they MUST remain as influences.
Their sound is perfectly tuned and it is, I do hope that more and more strange and outrageous experimentation comes in the near future. Some bands hold the key to another philosophical stage of the sonic future of mankind. Don’t lose the fucking key, for fuck sake!
Ad Nauseum will be released next October 13th on Broken Limbs .
