The darkness of the soul that unfolds on IMPURE WILHELMINA's sixth full-length 'Radiation' is feeding from many sources.
Although they originally started out on a post-core flow, the Swiss have continuously drifted to a more rock based course, on which they are staying. This new album finds some obvious points of reference such as later KATATONIA and TIAMAT in their ability to create sublime melodic elegance.
Yet there are also more obscure undercurrents such as a fearless embrace of dissonance and raw emotionality embodied by the stylistically quite different JOY DIVISION.
With 'Radiation', IMPURE WILHELMINA have created an album that invites the listener to explore and discover new hidden treasures with every spin. Welcome to this journey into uncharted musical lands…
The new OLD MAN GLOOM album "Light Of Meaning" (aka Seminar VIII) sees the notorious experimental super-group forge on their legacy after a slight suspension in uncertainty following the passing of bassist/vocalist Caleb Scofield. It was decided that the remaining members Aaron Turner (Sumac/Isis), Nate Newton (Converge), and drummer Santos Montano would continue to forge on with OLD MAN GLOOM and would bring in Scofield's former Cave In bandmate, Stephen Brodsky, to take Caleb's place amongst the pulse.
Through monolithic sonic tapestries sewn throughout, "Light Of Meaning" blossoms as a moving tribute to Scofield where the band have even incorporated material that Scofield had laid down previously for new OMG music.
'Success' is a funny concept. On its rawest, most pure form, it is entirely relative, and this was the subject KEN mode chose to approach their new album with.
Both sonically and lyrically, a shift has been made from the classic spitting of metallic hardcore tinged vitriol to a more raw indie aesthetic.
On 'Success' KEN mode pay tribute to where they've come from, saluting both their Canadian Prairie roots and a time when they first started to care about making music.
This was a time when the burgeoning grunge scene of the late 80's / early 90s, with bands like NIRVANA, BIG BLACK, COP SHOOT COP, THE COWS, CIRCUS LUPUS, and DRIVE LIKE JEHU were warping their teenage minds.
KEN MODE is ready for the next great step.
KEN MODE’s fifth full-length “Entrench” proudly preserves their acclaimed metallic Post-Hardcore severity, while offering their most creative and sonically diverse album at the same time – to which famed producer Matt Bayles (MASTODON, ISIS, BOTCH) added a massive punch. Formed in 1999, KEN MODE have shared stages with THE END, MASTODON, BURNT BY THE SUN, PELICAN, THE DREAM IS DEAD and GAZA among others.
This band is hot and clearly bound to be the next big thing!
