Wild Cat Strike Profile

Wild Cat Strike (‘waɪld ‘kæt ‘straɪk) n. 1 The feeling of folk-like intension with aggressive execution 2 The experience of immersion in sound 3 The manic shift between harmonious beauty and cacophony: Wild Cat Strike has released their new EP entitled ‘Attentive Blood’ which is available from Bandcamp. [ Lat. ferus cattus inpello ] Synonyms; None

“Four local lads on a mission, to present a refreshing take for alt, indie rock. A delightful pairing of soaring guitars and screeching vocals. Lead singer Danny Byrom may scream until he is red in the face, and yet the audience is not alarmed – truly believable stories of epic proportions delivered with an utterly convincing performance.” __ [ TwoThreeFour ].

WILD CAT STRIKE LATEST VIDEO LAUNCH

From Upcoming EP
Released – TBA
Filmed By Some Friends @ Small Pond Recordings

From the mournful palm-muted intro and the teasingly drawn out drum break to the extended instrumental rockout, the latest single from Wild Cat Strike takes its sweet time to unravel. As their dictionary definition press blurb states, the band’s name represents “the manic shift between harmonious beauty and cacophony”. For once this is a press blurb that makes sense, as can be heard when the song erupts into a furious crescendo.

This is ‘Neighbourhood’, a melancholic eight-minute epic about life in a small town – an appropriate theme for a city like Brighton which seems to be the getaway of choice for many musicians. “It’s a song about growing up in a one horse town that never changes,” explains singer Danny Byrom. “People either leave and evolve or stay stationary and decline.”

SOURCE is hosting the premiere of the single’s video, produced by Small Pond Recordings. It was filmed at Marwoods coffee shop in an upstairs room which singer songwriter Nick Williams (who also works in the café) has recently converted into a live music space. “The reason we chose Marwoods is we love the space,” says Danny. “It’s really interesting and different to the usual places people film videos. We’re massively grateful that Nick and the rest of the guys let us make all that noise up there.” The video is being released ahead of Wild Cat Strike’s appearance at Bleach this Friday. The band are playing alongside local operatic rockers Written in Waters supporting New Zealand’s post rock heroes Jakob who are touring their first release in eight years.

Siberia

May 6th, 2015 / Comments Off on Siberia / by Mog/

Siberia Profile

The band Siberia, from Montmeló (Barcelona), mixes fast riffs, powerful breakdowns, odd complex time passages, melodic chorus, and many more interesting things, that make every song a hit. They crushed the metal local scene with their sound, putting their songs into another level with strong live shows. The band started from a La Granja de Playmobil reunion in January 2009. The members were Alberto López (drums), Carlos Sáez (bass and voice) and Daniel G. Nogales (guitar). They started jamming the old songs in the rehearsal room, but they quickly decided to forget about them and felt the need to create new ones from scratch with their current metal influences. They took Alberto’s brother Víctor López, as a second guitarist and Carlos focused on the voice, leaving the bass position to different people until they find Marc A. Claramunt..

In mid 2010 Siberia launched an EP with two songs to promote the band and make more shows. All the recording and mixing process was done in Carlos’s room between February and March, and it was mastered by Juan Pe at K-Cleta Studios in April 2010. In October 2012 they launched their first LP titled A war inside my head. Drums were recorded in K-Cleta Studios, and voices in Jailden Studios, so this time they only recorded at home guitars and bass. The mastering was done, again, by Juan Pe. The record has eleven songs that can be labeled as progressive metalcore. With a lot of brilliant ideas in every song, all the record flows dynamically from the beginning to end, and the listening to it leaves no one indifferent.

In summer 2013, the band began to compose and make demos for their upcoming second LP. The recording process was done in Wasabi Estudis by Juan Pe and Carles Puntí. It was mastered in Fascination Street Studios (Örebo – Sweden) by Jens Bogren. The LP titled A calculated life cycle has been launched in April 2014. The album contains ten songs that not only follow the previous LP’s trail, but also it is a step foward into their progressive metalcore, showing an spectacular maturity and driving the band far beyond.

Johnny In The Jungle

May 6th, 2015 / Comments Off on Johnny In The Jungle / by Mog/

Johnny In The Jungle Profile

Johnny in the Jungle is an instrumental band hailing from Szeged, southern Hungary. That band started out from jam sessions in the spring of 2009. Our style could by described as a crossover of post-rock, psychedelic rock and jungle. Our debut album [Kilincs] came out in 2010. Since then our musical style has evolved a lot. Our second self-produced album [Chimera] is now available for free download at our bandcamp site. It includes an e-book accompaining each song with a short story or poem in Hungarian and also a beautiful painting.

This music is something different to the usual day to day post. Couple of critics tend to say start with [ Kilincs ] followed by [ Chimera ]. Personally I don’t have a preference between the two albums. If you like one you’ll definitely dig the other. Or shall I say if you dig the likes of [ Rovo ] / [ Losalios ] then you are most certainly in for a beautiful treat as both title is strongly jazz-fused with a low-end avantgarde-like touch and electronic base. The tricky part is… when an album is complex it usually take a couple of listen for you to digest the sound but with [ Johnny In The Jungle ] that’s not the case. The complexity is actually an easy flow all together. Again [ Rovo ] / [ Losalios ] or [ Naikaku ] fans, head for the download. But that in mind ‘Postcard from Norilsk’ is an entirely different game. VERY NICE INDEED.

Cinchel

May 6th, 2015 / Comments Off on Cinchel / by Mog/

Cinchel Profile

Cinchel is a drone/ambient guitarist from Chicago. “Quiet Nights, Lonesome Woods” is his latest EP release. This particular one contains no guitars and some buried beats and enough low end drone to really shake your walls. Many of us will also find that “Quiet Nights, Lonesome Woods” works pretty damn well as headphone music and large room listening. The latest EP is where you would want to start but but all means work your way to gather the entire Cinchel catalog.

[ Diamond Is The Rough ]. The eponymous title track is not only the gateway to Diamond In The Rough, but its very morphogenetic core which happens to be embedded in-between a helix of aquatic fractals. Instead of launching with the expected fade-in phase of several seconds and balmy Drone layers, Diamond In The Rough starts in medias res, with a gorgeously bubbling echo-coated fluxion of a moist and profound arpeggio. Textures and tonality burst at the seams in the very first seconds already, and as the architecture is repeated and gets louder over its course, the intensity is charged as well. That this vesiculation is guitar-based is a given in Jason Shanley’s work.

The emerald feeling is soon interpolated with a sun-dappled luminosity of excitatory drones which tower securely above the melting pot. Their infinitesimally overdriven scratches and hazy physiognomy make them curiously present and diffusely untouchable. Soon enough, these layers begin to bubble and oscillate as well. Clinging chimes lead to snoring dragons, the arrangement becomes incredibly louring (or was that luring?) all of a sudden; abyssal bass creeks float through the labyrinthine vaults, a pompous aura of opaqueness reigns. However, since Diamond In The Rough is based on vignettes, this state, while still maintained and resurrected for a few moments, is accompanied by blazingly iridescent and melodious Rave bells which do not seem gelid rather than supercharged with a powerful nostalgia.

When this hypnotic segment wanes, the earthquake-evoking atmosphere is reintroduced, now with a greater impetus than before. Frosty bells gyrate around devastating explosions and rumbling cliffs. Diamond In The Rough, as it turns out, ends with a focus on the devastating roughness. Its progression, the various textures, reverberations, filters and melodies are, in short, an utter delight, a sublime bedlam. [ FULL REVIEW ]
