POST/INDIE-ROCK. This Swedish quintet showed early on that they had a skill for writing beautifully delicate music, including both classical instruments like cello, organs, and accordion with modern rock instruments, and even some electronics to craft songs so honest in their simplicity, yet treasured for their layers of sound. "i am responsible" is post-rock through and through, from the development of the melodies to the progression of the guitar riffs and tones. EF also lays a little heavier on the vocals with this album, which is a step up from their previous efforts for sure. Edited, remixed and remastered, "i am responsible" has a whole new sound to it. Comes with a bear-remix called “grizzly” by Udo Rabenstein.

POST/INDIE-ROCK. Sweden’s post-rock outfit EF deliever with "mourning golden morning" their 3rd studio release. The band manages to glide effortlessly while still rising and falling, speeding up and slowing down. All this comes to a head when the male/female vocals subtly subdue the song into a dream-like trance before rapidly building up into a barrage led by the percussion. The album's standout is a step furthest into the unknown from what EF are ever so used to. Reminiscent of a less abrasive RUSSIAN CIRCLES and CASPIAN hybrid, fused together with a non-electronica based 65DAYS OF STATIC. EF do the doom and gloom so well that it almost seems nothing but a natural progression.

SXE-HARDCORE. From the 1st breaths on the opening track to the shrill end of the closer, THE EFFORT's most recent offering is a visceral, desperate and personal attack on the American dream. It is clear that the band is filled with an anger that is so perfectly captured in the poignant and timely sonic assault that this Massachusetts quintet deliver. Swift driving melody laced with elusive sharp edges, ala DANGERS, TOUCHE AMORE, THE EFFORT's "wartime citizens" can easily stand tall amongst both relevant contemporaries and revered predecessors.

METALCORE.

Fueled by plenty of angst and aggression, the music of EIGHTEEN VISIONS occasionally verges on emo territory, making it appealing to anyone that likes their music loud and intense.

METALCORE. EIGHTEEN VISIONS have been promising to deliver an album that glistens as well as it growls, rocks as hard as it punches and sounds as good as the band looks. "vanity" is that album, distilling the Orange County mob's convoluted, technical metalcore of yore into blisteringly powerful yet melodiously catchy and instantly memorable songs. "vanity" still pummels and shreds enough to get a HATEBREED audience dancing, but it swings and grooves simultaneously, like the death 'n' roll of THE HAUNTED or ENTOMBED, and tastes as somberly bittersweet as ALICE IN CHAINS. This album will turn heads.

STONER/PSYCHEDELIC-ROCK. With their 2nd full-length, "dead roots stirring", originally released in 2011, ELDER returned from a 3 year silence with 5 songs charting new epic territory. Tremendous musical and songwriting growth take this album into a great new territorry. Equal parts hypnotic rhythm, uncompromising heaviness, and soaring melody, ELDER navigated between moods and sounds effortlessly. Heaviness is not sacrificed by any means, the power of the riff is undiminished, it is further elevated by the sonic space inbetween giving us time to let them sink in completely. Newly remastered album includes a digital download card.

STONER/PSYCHEDELIC-ROCK. Joining the interplay of heaviness and melody which has become the hallmark ELDER sound is a host of new meanderings through uncharted kosmische territory; kraut-rock, prog as well as classic heavy-rock and doom can all be heard unfolding throughout the record's 5 songs. By giving equal credence to riffs and atmosphere, "lore" bypasses genre constraints, the group's penchant for progressive songwriting and melody shining more brightly than ever. While ELDER's sound is now much more evolved and varied, it is still consistently based around rock and metal, originally influenced by such heavy landmark bands as BLACK SABBATH, SLEEP and ELECTRIC WIZARD. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

STONER/PSYCHEDELIC-ROCK. ELDER's 2017 album, "reflections of a floating world", which was written following the long and acclaimed "lore" tour in moments of intense creativity, is a journey into prog-rock and psychedelic worlds. Six monumental songs, huge in sound, each of them their own cosmic expedition. What begins as driving, mid-tempo rock filled with heavy guitar riffs repeatedly erupts into melodic tangents and clever variations. ELDER's sound is more voluminous than ever, and the influences found here range from '70s prog dinosaurs such as YES, PINK FLOYD to their kindred spirits MOTORPSYCHO or legendary '90s band THE GOD MACHINE. Vinyl includes a digital download card.

STONER/PSYCHEDELIC-ROCK.

HARDCORE. Musikalisch bleiben sich die Oberfranken trotz ihrer 10 jährigen Bandhistorie auch auf ihrem neusten Output treu. Auch ihr aktuelles Release ist ein maroder Schwertransporter auf Geisterfahrt. Das explosive Gemisch aus NEUROSIS artigen Songstrukturen und neuzeitlichem Hardcore der Marke BREACH garantiert auch in diesem Fall wieder einen Treibstoff mit höchster Oktanzahl. Einmal ins Rollen gebracht ist die Maschinerie jedoch nicht mehr aufzuhalten und walzt gnadenlos alles, was sich ihr in den Weg stellt, nieder. Einige wenige Augenblicke der Ruhe und Gelegenheit zum Luftholen gibts es zwar auch, allerdings nur solange, bis die Ampel wieder auf grün springt und erneut Bleifuß angesagt ist. Ehe man sich versieht endet die Fahrt so ruppig wie sie begonnen hat. Die 11 Tracks zersplittern in Zeitlupe vor dem geistigen Auge - Stillstand nach fast 50 schweißtreibenden Minuten."Things are far from ok" ist definitiv nichts für lausige Hardcore Fahranfänger.

CD 3.00€*

 

HARDCORE. ELISION combine long-termed instrumental pieces (think of NEUROSIS) with harsh outbursts (think of ISIS) and distinctive grooving rock to form a wall of sound. IVAN DRAGO's music is somewhere between REFLUX and COALESCE combining shattering brutality, calm breakdowns and jazzy interludes with extraordinary drumming. Jacob Bredahl (Hatesphere) took over the mastering and gave the 6 tracks the finishing touch.
