Not many bands whack out tracks over 10 minutes long that really get me going. And these proggy types of music, even the (in my opinion) better ones don’t usually get further listens from me post review. Ancestro may be a first here.
If you suffer from depression, suicidal thoughts or anything along those lines and will be potentially triggered by detailed and personal shit on the matter, then proceed with caution. Likewise if you want something music related, you may want to skip past this post.
You remember in the 90s when a herd of pop punk bands influenced by the likes of The Descendents were starting to gain traction and were pretty good, but then rapidly turned to dog shite alongside the mainstream success? Von Stache are like that peak in the genre, and with their third release, still not showing any signs of becoming said mainstream dog shite. Who said punk was dead?
It is safe to say, we remain fond of Qoheleth’s debut effort, as they successfully ran away with a true noise rock sound and had fun with their selection of abstract pieces. This time around, they have channelled their creativity into one hell of a concept album. This is Black Kite Broadcasts.
Everyone needs at least one record in their collection that opens with a scream. It’s oddly satisfying.
I’d say a good third of bands that I cover are compared to the likes of Nirvana or The Melvins within their little PR seller. Although most do somewhat earn the comparison, none quite to the deserved extent as Forever In Debt do.
This week I have been getting my metal fix from Beskar. I’ve mentioned numerous times about not being a huge fan of metal, so it takes something special, or at least different, to get a handful of compliments from me.
This review was fuelled by intrigue. I was sent a tweet with nothing more than a link to this music video. I checked it out, the lovely human being that I am, and loved what I heard, so immediately gave it a re-tweet. Unfortunately, not being sent it as a proper request it slipped my mind, but here we are now. I couldn’t not share the love on this one.
Listening to this track, I completely forgot I was listening to a British band. Take that as you will.
I have no idea if Scottish Metal is a legit thing, but if so then apparently this is it. So let’s keep up our shit hot rep that we currently have going with Scotland and check this out.
