New EP Surfacing by Whalezord

2017-06-07 04:56:17 UTC

New

Whalezord was born in Silesia region, Poland, in early 2016, originally as a trio. Until the late 2016 few songs were written and then the band had to decide about their direction and pick up a vocalist for the project. More screaming / growling approach was chosen and thus Whalezord started it's life as a real band, writing more and more material.

Remaining loyal to their hard-core and even punk origins, Whalezord members pick passion over anything else, mixing genres and following the path of continuous deconstruction. Deconstruction here is regarded as a tendency to dissect and dissolve parts of songs, adding not obvious influences and staying focused more on the flow than on a form.

Surfacing EP is the first release of Whalezord, containing three different songs to reflect various inspirations and flows. On Surfacing EP you can find three poems, sang and played with an individual flavour, reflecting band's attitude to art, poetry and immerse experience that reading poems whilst listening to music is for its members. All Whalezord's songs are inspired by poetry and contain poems instead of lyrics. Surfacing EP is no different and you can find following poems here:

1. Passing - Wisława Szymborska (Polish poet) - Cat in an empty apartment

2. Shore - Pablo Neruda (Chilean poet) - Here I love you

3. Surfacing, part I - Lewis Caroll (English poet) - Dreamland

Track List

  • Passing - 04:23 info 
  • Ashore - 04:34 info 
  • Surfacing, part I - 05:24 


Genre : death, metal, extreme, metalcore, melodic, poetry

Soothing Rays of Eternity by The Cruelest Animal

2017-05-08 03:56:55 UTC

New

The Cruelest Animal has been a work in progress for Drummer / Guitarist / Producer Alex Crane since 2009. The band started as a recording project featuring guest performances by members of Intronaut, National Sunday Law, and The Great Wall. The music is inspired by a wide variety of styles including classic prog rock groups like King Crimson and Pink Floyd, as well as Trip Hop acts like Massive Attack, Dj Shadow, and Radiohead. Aspects of technical and spacey influences are blended into a sound rooted in early 90s metal.

The album Soothing Rays of Eternity represents a leap forward creatively. With the addition of Matt Boylan on bass (former Bear Baiting and Cuneiform), and use of Ableton Live looping software, what was once a recording project has developed into a live two-piece band. 

The album is structured abnormal rhythmic cycles and features drums and bass as primary elements. The rhythm section is accentuated by heavy, yet spacey guitars, keyboards, and vocals. The song Unleash the Swine features David Timnick of Intronaut on Tablas, and Derek Donley of Bereft and National Sunday Law on Vocals.

Soothing Rays of Eternity was self recorded and mixed in our rehearsal space in 2016 and was released via Bandcamp on April 21, 2017.

Alex Crane: Drums, Guitar, Vocals, MIDI programming, Recording, and Mixing

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
