IRREVERSIBLE

April 21st, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Irreversible Profile

Atlanta, Georgia’s Irreversible mark a return to the glorious past with their latest release Surface. Gone are the hardcore/alternative elixirs from their last two releases, Ashes and Thorn. Back are the post metal capstones from Sins and Light. I love the reinvention. Not that Ashes and Thorn are bad albums, in fact, they are quite good, but that’s all they are – good. Irreversible are at their best when they are playing expansive, dynamic and mystifying post metal. Surface is another trophy for Irreversible’s mantle and a top-tier listen for atmospheric metal enthusiasts wanting spacey and musing yet thick and supple post metal.

Musically, it’s the most diversified Irreversible album to date because Surface uses every post metal trait in the book. Beautiful noodle-y guitar motifs, crunching layered riffs and minimalist but bruising drum work are at the epicenter. Selective programming and electronics elevate the sound high into the atmosphere and sparse vocal content and some samples facilitate within the music. Post metal’s greatest asset is it’s ability to sound soothing for minutes and then build towards full blown amplification with oppressive instruments in full force – and although crescendo-style songs are pedestrian among bands in this genre, Irreversible are masters of this craft. The production is done well, the bass is especially cavernous, and the vocals, a potpourri of spoken word, clean singing and sludge-style yelling, are rooted precisely beneath the music. The copious atmosphere is ominous and totally disarming.

Yes, I am an Irreversible fan boy, and although they probably aren’t on anyone’s A-list of post metal bands, this should have no bearing on the willingness of post metal devotees to give this album a diligent listen. With 3 songs and 40 minutes of music, Surface begins in near silence and then slowly swells to synth-led ambiance to a massive barrier of bedlam and mayhem. Expressions of both mournful endlessness and immense satisfaction in beauty and human existence signifies Surface’s highs and lows. It effortlessly delves into earthly depths and ascends celestial heights. Irreversible have returned to their prime with distinction and polarity. __[ Metal Storm ].

Credits
Released April 20th 2015
Written, Performed & Composed By IRREVERSIBLE
All Songs Mixed / Mastered By: CJ Ridings ( The Original Bassist )

In its final incarnation, Irreversible releases its terminal self-titled album. As a kind of “summary work,” this 45-minute recording recapitulates the best of Irreversible, pulling influence from each previous release. Longtime friend Kevin Bolen was brought in as second guitarist, incorporating his knowledge of the bands dynamics to help bring closure to the project. Tracked, mixed and mastered by the original bassist CJ Ridings, with some production help from the band, the songs are 100% DIY while sounding nothing like a DIY production. As Irreversible lays to rest its ten-year musical career – obscure, resilient, and unfamed – this album is a beautiful eulogy and appropriate tombstone for the seven albums and ten members that helped give the Atlanta metal scene an unprecedented psychedelic influence.

Solkyri

Solkyri Profile

Solkyri are a post‐rock band from Sydney, Australia. Combining subtle ambient textures, crushing distortions and pulsating walls of sound, this album forms a beautiful yet haunting brand of captivating instrumental rock music. In February 2011, Solkyri released their debut EP titled ’No House’ . Since releasing their debut EP, Solkyri have established themselves as one of Australia’s best new instrumental bands. With airplay on Triple J and community radio, the band have toured with the heavyweights of the experimental scene including sleepmakeswaves, Laura, Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and Meniscus, as well as headlining their own club shows along the east coast.

’Are You My Brother?’ is the band’s debut album and it was released through Bird’s Robe Records on May 7, 2013. This album makes use of a plethora of instruments and tone colours to paint a vivid picture that encompasses a myriad of colour and mood. ’Are You My Brother?’ displays the band’s intention to experiment musically outside of the world of post-rock, whilst still paying homage to all that is beautiful about the genre.

April 21st, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

joasihno profile

Iceland, Africa, Eichstaett, Classic, Pop, cold and warm, colorful and grey, intuition, skills and to know the right moment to peel them off. His first EP “Papiertonnentigertum” (self-distributed in 2009) already gave us a first insight into his special sound. Joasihnos first full-length “We Say: Oh Well” was released in May 2011 followed by “A Lie” in 2013.

The ongoing love affair between US-Americans and rectangular, grid-like shapes is hardly a secret: There’s Manhattan’s grid system, and pretty much all state lines are straight; even Mid-West farmers prefer their plains and fields nice and square, as any domestic flight from one coast to the other will teach you. Yet, contrary to popular belief, things are not much different in Old Europe, or rather, in southern Germany: The “rectangular fields” surrounding, shaping, and defining the Upper Bavarian village Joasihno call home once again turned out a significant influence and defining factor during the duo’s recording sessions for its sophomore effort A Lie. Former sole mastermind Christoph “Cico” Beck (Aloa Input, MS. John Soda) and his new band mate Nico Sierig (Missent To Denmark) have referred to them before, and apparently these oblong, “rectangular fields” work pretty much like blank sheets – just waiting to be filled with Joasihno’s shape-shifting, rather circular, meandering, and free floating tracks that are full of surprising little twists and turns.

Having recently played another round of gigs with The Notwist and Owen Pallett – they previously also shared stages with Beirut, Sóley, 13 & God, and Youth Lagoon –, the opening track of Joasihno’s second album feels a bit like a plane’s smooth landing at sundown: the air is shimmering, and suddenly there’s this new thirst for action upon touchdown, it’s something Germans like to call Tatendrang. In other words: It’s a proper kick-off to set the tone, gleaming, strumming, clapping euphorically; the sonic equivalent to a movie’s “happy ending” right at the beginning. Further down those fields, they present a sound that seems to say “why not keep that level of playfulness”, sometimes bolting and shooting off into the wind – “Oh Boy!” – but also staying true to its melancholy undercurrents reminiscent of the underrated Matt Marque. Elsewhere, Joasihno even live up to Cico’s last name when “Some Light” indeed sounds a bit like a certain Beck Hansen trapped in the garden of intricate beats.

Over the course of the LP, the duo weaves a vast array of influences ranging from World Music to Minimal and back – Cico mentions Reich, Glass, Ligeti, and Nancarrow when asked about his key influences – into an electro-acoustic tapestry of sound that includes hypnotic layers (“Dream Of A Disappearing Friend”), surprising melodies almost reminiscent of The Strokes (“Oceans”; albeit using the kind of instrumentation you’d find in Hymie’s Basement), and some fine home-made soundtrack material that would make any super-8 collection look even better (“In Our House”). Apparently, living that close to the ultimate border, the Limes of ancient Rome, results in a rather unbounded and limitless approach when it comes to DIY musicianship.

It’s been a while since Joasihno dropped the first EP “Papiertonnentigertum” (2009) and the debut album We Say: Oh Well (2011), and so it’s great to see that the spirit of DIY is still vehemently blowing from all sides across the “rectangular fields” of northern Bavaria. And just like the first rays of sunlight are about to return to the barren fields when A Lie finally sees its release, the sonic snapshots and moments gathered on this album are humming like an old-school slide show – in fact you can almost feel the shimmering air against the skin.

Ornaments Profile

Ornaments is the perfect representation of the common passion for music of a group of friends. Years of attending shows, listening to lps, entire days closed up in a rehearsal room, many kilometers on the road with a bunch of cds piled up on the dashboard. Finally these people felt something had to be given back, they had to put together the mysterious energy of all the musical influences and create something new and completely free from the typical rock stereotype. At the same time forming a band was the natural progression in keeping a close friendship going and expressing a unique mutual feeling. Since early winter in 2003 until this day, ORNAMENTS represents a chance to build a solid construction of ideas and free form experimentation that can satisfy alla members of the band.

ORNAMENTS wants to consider itself as an open project that can freely interact with different artistic figures such as Multimedial and Visual Artists and Soundtrack creators. The first self-titled EP (2004) is made up of 4 instrumental tracks. Long silent atmospheric moments are ruptured by huge brutal explosions of sound. Dark atmospheres create even more obscure visions. The song structures mix the sharp edges and tight mechanical feeling of a heavy brutal sound with a more harmonic post-rock dreaminess. Tension just keeps building up during the whole listening experience of these 4 tracks. A purifying moment just seems around the corner but it just never actually comes, the music keeps on growing in an infinite spiral.

The music of Ornaments starts following the common coordinates found in the sensitivity of the four musicians, and looking to most innovative post-metal and post-core bands of the moment (such as Neurosis, Isis and Breach), and gradually evolving to a more personal formula, able to merge the “mass” of doom-metal with progressive suggestions, meditative breaks and post-rock passages.
