Official Press Text - In the middle of the Austrian Alps, Our Ceasing Voice was founded in late 2006. To achieve their depressing, yet incomprehensibly beautiful sound, Our Ceasing Voice utilizes the perfect blend between hypnotizing ambient and epic outbursts soaking with melancholia.

Our Ceasing Voice is:

Eyup Kus - bass, acoustic guitar, vocals Reinhard Obermeir - guitars, vocals Markus Rappold - drums, synthesizers Sebastian Obermeir - guitars, programming

Review: From the moment the text to the title of Our Ceasing Voices debut EP hits the eyes, the overall feeling is that something special awaits (no normal band would call their first ever record 'Steadied Stars In The Morphium Sky'). As the EP starts, gentle, tonal echoes stir quietly to life: sparse and otherworldly, sucking you inwards and downwards to unknown sonic landscapes. Layer-upon-ominous-layer of music slowly starts to fold and entwine around itself before eventually morphing into some form of noticeable rhythm.

The lightest hum of a distant instrument confirms the beginning of the next track but never once does the listener leave his audible tomb to notice. Of Lives Once Lost starts with just a single, simple guitar string which resonates for the first four minutes before rumbling, deathly-black clouds appear and darken the entire scenery. Heavy drums and a guitar crafted from the depths of hell devastatingly unfurl as the track progresses, becoming both menacing and ghostly.

Imagine the captain of the Titanic’s face when he first heard his vessel scrape against the side of that iceberg and then somehow transpose that to a compositional form and you’re somewhere near (but not quite) the emotions that the song elicits. Post-rock is known for its epic crescendos, distorted, echo-drenched guitar-work and atmospheric, instrumental nature and even though this EP has ample amounts of all, there's still something wholly unique about Our Ceasing Voice.  [ Full Review ]

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
