In this track we can listen to Turner strange vocals which remind me to Keiji Haino or Attila Csihar in their soft phases.
The track has long moments of almost quiet atmosphere, slow motion guitars with some nice effects and drones and, the unexpected sound of a gong which surely was played by Atsuo.
However this lifeless atmosphere becomes into a more aggressive journey as guitar drones become heavier and Merzbow drowns the listener into a sea of noisy electronics. It is always interesting watching any act in this vein playing live. Improvisation brings the listener a total doubt about what is next. Some people claim that all albums from experimental genres like this should be recorded live, since improvisation seems to be an indispensable approach in this kind of music.
Both projects are Wolves Of Dusk - Argus - Boldly Stride The Doomed (Vinyl listening and sure we will know more things about Mamiffer in this year since their last album is, in my opinion, one of the best of the year.
House of Low Culture is drafting its new material, hope it be released soon. Etiquetas:ambientdroneexperimentalneo-classicalnoise. Few days ago, I was having one of those marvelous rainy evenings and I got in the mood for funeral doom metal albums. As I was enjoying this outstanding album I wondered what happened with Lee Paxton, the man behind this and other projects. It had been a long time since the last time I knew something about him.
His Myspace page seems to be abandoned since the Wolves Of Dusk - Argus - Boldly Stride The Doomed (Vinyl year, his mp3. Latter, I decided to visit his profile in Metal-Archives, and what an unexpected surprise! It seems like Amaranthine Trampler had just released a new album, a full-length album this time!
But, where can we check that this is real or official? I downloaded the album from any blog, I took a sit and listened.
Yes indeed, this is Amaranthine Tramplerno doubt about it. Let me tell you a couple of things about why I love Amaranthine Trampler. So, as you can imagine, talking about the new things of a band to which you have so much affection is not as objective as one can expect from a common band. Furthermore, unfortunately Lee Paxton will suffer of the compare-with-past-album syndrome, at least for fans like me who love his demo.
Under a good coverart, we have more funeral doom metal that will not Album) the listeners of this dark kind of music. It seems like this time Lee Paxton decided to include more elements or, at least, make a more dynamic album by adding more keys and ambient moments. The main funeral doom metal songs in the album are only three tracks. These tracks are haunting with a good amount of darkness on them. The Amaranthine Trampler framework remains constant: slow drums, heavy riffage and, of course, that unique powerful guttural vocals with a nice use of echo in some moments.
These growls are maybe one of the most attractive elements from Amaranthine Tramplerhowever, I find them more homogeneous and vertical than in the demo, in which Paxton had very expressive moments, almost sounding like a desperate cry, dare I say.
He also used to stretch growls until screams. Paxton have no problem with stringing along this growls with clean vocals and spoken words. What about guitars?
They used to be even noisy, sometimes my speakers prayed for mercy. It is possible that the lower recording quality of the demo helped them to sound heavier.
And talking about atmosphere, as I wrote above, Paxon has added more keys. I love this kind of bands to use organ. As in the demo, Paxton also includes some samples along the album, which sound very good.
And, joining the atmosphere we have that simple and lifeless melodies played with clean guitars above the heavy riffs in some songs. Without doubt an extra point to Amranthine Trampler. Remember some The Morningside songs that were clearly influenced by post-rock?
This brings us an idea of how Paxton's musical influences have been changing through this LP years. I find the funeral doom metal songs from this album more monotonous and systematic, despite the new elements just added.
It has the elements needed and originality on it. Prelistening on Youtube. Etiquetas:doom metalfuneral doom metalmetal. Nowadays there are lots of post-rock acts out there. Checking them out one realizes that many of them are nothing but an uninspired copy of Explosions in the Sky.
Furthermore, creating post-rock music demands a good composition gift, so, as you can imagine, forming a post-rock band is not an easy job. But, suddenly, one runs into worth listening bands, like this one. Perhaps, the combination of post-rock and electronics is not that original when we think about bands such Blueneck or Unlearnnevertheless, Kontakte uses the electronics in a very different way. They do not use drums. In order to replace them, they generate electronic beats and rhythms, which bring a very unique atmosphere that becomes into fresh and easy listening music.
Replacing drums with electronics brings a wider possibility of sounds, letting the music to be more dynamic and unpredictable. The album begins with a good set of electronics please play it with powerful speakers and shoegaze effects inviting the listener to dive into the atmosphere of lots of images appearing and disappearing every moment.
Guitars in the whole album are similar to This Will Detroy You first album their new stuff is epic, by the way! Melodies are often generated by clean guitars that become the main element in most of the moments of the album, they are accompanied by a second guitar with excellent shoegaze effects damn it!
All this is combined with electronic polymorphisms creating different textures in the sonic experience. In general, electronics replacing drums may remind you to trip-hop band Arms and Sleepers. Moreover, Kontakte handle some acoustic instruments. The melodies from these songs are awesome, they are well structured and, by the way, seem to express exactly feelings like hope, they fit with the nice picture in the coverart.

Publicado por Jack Rollins en No hay comentarios:. Believe in me, the name of this band is not a joke, this is extremely depressive music. They are a two-person band from Turkey who had already published one album before. And due to our nihilistic outlook to whole life, began to transform our feelings to tunes. Even the recording quality is low and simple. In fact, the songs are relativity short, about 5 minutes length each one. The album sounds quite similar to funeral doom solo project Lord Grief.
Very LP song though. Drums are computer-generated and make me think about Lord Grief once again. They are slow and simple, just in the way they have to be in funeral doom metal. Contrasting with keys and ambient elements, vocals are hellish, they are very deep growls. In fact, the album opens with a brutal guttural growl. Depressive Mode brings a true journey through the most damaged feelings one can have.
Listening to this album will just paint you a soundscape of loss and loneliness. The minimalistic structure of this music brings the feeling of misery needed in this soundscape, LP. Etiquetas:ambientdoom metalfuneral doom metalmetal.
