Monsters Of The Antipodes

Monsters of the Antipodes Profile

Monsters of The Antipodes are a Math Rock band from Baltimore, Maryland. The band kicked off with [ Houses EP ] back in 2012 which brought some of the freshest math-rock / math-core sounds you can possibly find in this present century. Complex guitar lead lines bounce off booming, poly-rhythmic drums and chugging, deep bass, paving the way for Monsters of The Antipodes unique and catchy signature. And today almost two years down the line the band made a return with yet another significantly high pitch and complex rhythm EP title [ Four Years and Heavy Horses ].

[ Four Years and Heavy Horses ]. Primarily instrumental math-core “Four Years and Heavy Horses” is a perfect hybrid of loud instrumental notes patching with complex and melancholic tunes that ranges from noise to experimental but not limited to electronic and post-rock elements. Experimenting with different instrumentation, compositional and recording techniques [ Monsters Of The Antipodes ] has moved one step towards a braver and a more explicit scene.

Bright and blistering guitars are very apparent on this EP, which goes to say the band is now just more immediate and complex than ever. This makes for a pleasurable listen, one full of rock solid riffing that simply doesn’t get old. The nodding and the rhythmic structures found on “Four Years and Heavy Horses” movements are about as tasteful as it gets, and the discordant notes across the entire EP is nothing but an ecstatic formation.

While the tracks on this EP don’t appoint any structural form of flawlessness, the riffing power the band applies is more than enough to blow your mind away. “Four Years and Heavy Horses” EP consists of three songs and a total of 12 minutes. Short EP I know… but when you are faced which such loudness and tricky experimental chords blurting utter distortions and abrupt rhythmic waves directly to your face… trust me a solid 15 minutes is all you need for a thirst quench.

“Four Years and Heavy Horses” is overflowed with some countless textures in just the right places, from haunting blast to sputtering irregular drum patterns and even a bit of post-punk to a tipsy bit of electronic on ‘Cereal Junky’. It is an addictive and diverse EP that meticulously illustrate the extent of the knowledge that [ Monsters Of The Antipodes ] members have for music. In a nutshell the band entwine convoluted guitar and drum patterns to simultaneously sums up the perfect instrumental math-rock. Along with their unconventional approach, they seem to have created their own formula to an optimistic and uplifting EP. __[ TOTALLY AWESOME NOISE ].

We All Die! What A Circus!

August 27th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

We All Die What A Circus Profile

Solo project called [ We All Die! What A Circus! ] can be placed in the ( Ambient, Drone, Folk, Soundscapes and Acoustic ) pit. Started this year in June, completely DIY. It consists of: Guitars, Bass, Synths, Samples, Field-Recordings to give you a dive through the gaps of human condition. A metaphysical shelter from corporate society and an ascetic journey towards death but celebrating life itself.

DISCOGRAPHY:

2014 – Until The Cosmos Takes Me Back
2013 – Drowning gives Meaning To Breath

[ Until The Cosmos Takes Me Back ]. This album evolves around the notion that our very existence is a consequence of millions of years of evolution and endless connections, rising and fading. It deals with the fragility of life as a whole and as an individual, always remembering that our time here is limited. It all happened on this pale blue dot, our home, Earth. We shall always remember that every single life, past and present, lived there–on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

Recorded between September 2013 and June 2014.
Instruments ( Guitars, Bass, Synths, Samples, Field-Recordings )
played and produced by João Guimarães.
Album Cover by [ Anna Wasilewska. ] A special thanks to her for the awesome cover

The EP is made of 3 tracks where each movement comes as a beautiful attempt to reflect a different consciousness, and also sort of a three simple steps to completely dive in to a spatial dream.
