Quarterly Review: Boris, DVNE, Hydra, Jason Simon, Cherry Choke, Pariiah, Saavik, Mountain Tamer, Centre El Muusa, Population II

Posted in Reviews on December 21st, 2020 by JJ Koczan

THE-OBELISK-FALL-2020-QUARTERLY-REVIEW

Kind of a spur of the moment thing, this Quarterly Review. I’ve been adding releases all the while, of course, but my thought was to do this after my year-end list went up, and I realized, hey, if I’ve got like 70 records I haven’t reviewed yet, maybe there’s some of that stuff worth considering. So here we are. I’ve pushed back my best-of-2020 stuff and basically swapped it with the Quarterly Review. Does it matter to you? I seriously, seriously doubt it, but I believe in transparency and that’s what’s up. Thought I’d let you know.

Progressive, heavy, and remarkably ‘next-wave’ feeling, DVNE‘s awaited follow-up to 2017’s Asheran may only be about 17 and a half minutes long, but it bodes remarkably well as the band master a torrent of intensity on the 10-minute opening title-cut and answer that with the immediately galloping “Of Blade and Carapace,” smashing battle-axe riffing and progressive shimmer against each other and finding it to be an alchemy of their own. Album? One suspects not until they can tour for it, but if Omega Severer is DVNE serving notice, consider the message received loud, clear, dynamic, crushing, spacious, and so on. Already veterans of Psycho Las Vegas, they sound like a band bent on capturing a broader audience in the metallic sphere.

Hydra, From Light to the Abyss

hydra from light to the abyss

There’s no questioning where Hydra‘s heart is at on their debut full-length, From Light to the Abyss. It belongs to the devil and it belongs to Black Sabbath. The Polish four-piece riff hard and straightforward throughout most of the five-track offering (released by Piranha Music), and samples set the kind of atmosphere that should be familiar enough to the converted — “No One Loves Like Satan” reminds of Uncle Acid in its initial channel-changing and swaggering riff alike — but doomly centerpiece “Creatures of the Woods” and the layered vocal melodies late in closer “Magical Mind” perhaps offer a glimpse at the direction the band could take from here. What matters though is where Hydra are at today, and that’s bringing riffs and nod to the converted among the masses, and From Light to the Abyss offers no pretense otherwise. It is doom rock for doom rockers, grooves to be grooved to. They’re not void of ambition by any means — their songwriting makes that clear — but their traditionalism is sleeve-worn, which if you’re going to have it, is right where it should be.

Jason Simon, A Venerable Wreck

jason simon a venerable wreck

Dead Meadow guitarist/vocalist Jason Simon follows 2016’s Familiar Haunts (review here) with the genre-spanning A Venerable Wreck, finding folk roots in obscure beats and backwards this-and-that, country in fuzz, ramble in space, and no shortage of experimentalism besides. A Venerable Wreck consists of 12 songs and though there are times where it can feel disjointed, that becomes part of the ride. It’s not all supposed to make sense. Yet what happens by the time you get around to “No Entrance No Exit” is that Simon (and a host of cohorts) has set his own context broad enough so that the drone reach of “Hollow Lands” and sleek, organ-laced indie of closer “Without Reason or Right” can coexist without any real interruption of flow between them. The question with A Venerable Wreck isn’t so much whether the substance is there, it’s whether the listener is open to it. Welcome to psychedelic America. Please inject this snake venom and turn in your keys when you leave.

Cherry Choke, Raising Salzburg Rockhouse

Cherry Choke-Raising Salzburg Rockhouse-Cover

You won’t hear me take away from the opening psych-scorch hook of “Mindbreaker” or the fuzzed-on, boogie-down, -up, and -sideways of “Black Annis” which follows, but there’s something extra fun about hearing Frog Island’s Cherry Choke jam out a 13-minute, drum-solo-inclusive version of “6ix and 7even” that makes Raising Salzburg Rockhouse even more of a reminder of how underrated both they are as a band and Mat Bethancourt is as a player. Look no further than “Domino” if you want absolute proof. The whole band rips it up at the Austrian gig, which was recorded in 2015 as they supported their third and still-most-recent full-length, Raising the Waters (review here), but Bethancourt puts on a Hendrixian clinic in the nine-minute cut from 2011’s A Night in the Arms of Venus (review here), which is actually less of a clinic than it is pure distorted swagger followed by a mellow “cheers, thanks” before diving into “Used to Call You Friend.” A 38-minute set would be perfect for an vinyl release, and anytime Cherry Choke want to get around to putting together a fourth studio album, well, that’ll be just fine too.

Pariiah, Swallowed by Fog

Pariiah swallowed by fog

It’s a special breed of aggro that emerges as a result of living in the most densely populated state in the union, and New Jersey’s Pariiah have it to spare. Bringing together sludge tonality with elder-style New York hardcore lumbering riffs on their Trip Machine Laboratories tape, Swallowed by Fog, they exude a thickened brand of pissed off that’s outright going to be too confrontation for many who take it on. But if you want a middle finger to the face, this is what it sounds like, and the six songs (compiled into four on the digital version of the release) come and go entirely without pretense and leave little behind except bruises and the promise of more to come. They’re a new band, started in this most wretched of years, but there’s no learning curve whatsoever among the members of Devoid of Faith, The Nolan Gate, Kill Your Idols, Changeörder and others. I’d go to Maplewood to see these cats. I’m just saying. Maybe even Elizabeth.

Saavik, Saavik

saavik saavik

So you’ve got both members of Holly Hunt in a four-piece sludging out with spacey synth and the band is named after a Star Trek character? Not to get too personal, but that’s going to pique my interest one way or the other. Saavik — and they clearly prefer the Kirstie Alley version, rather than Robin Curtis, going by drummer Beatriz Monteavaro‘s artwork — are damn near playing space rock by the end of “He’s Dead Jim,” the opener of their self-titled debut EP, but even that’s affected by a significant tonal weight in Didi Aragon‘s bass and the guitar of Gavin Perry, however much Ryan Rivas‘ synth and effects-laced vocals might seem to float overhead, but “Meld” rolls along at a steadier nod, and “Horizon” puts the synth more in the lead without becoming any less heavy for doing so. Likewise, “Red Sun” calls to mind Godflesh in its proto-machine metal stomp, but there’s more concern in Saavik‘s sound with expanse than just pure crush, and that shows up in fascinating ways in these songs.

Mountain Tamer, Psychosis Ritual

mountain tamer psychosis ritual

There’s been a dark vibe all along nestled into Mountain Tamer‘s sound, and that’s certainly the case on Psychosis Ritual, with which the Los Angeles-based trio make their debut on Heavy Psych Sounds. It’s their third full-length overall behind 2018’s Godfortune // Dark Matters (review here) and 2016’s self-titled debut (review here), and it finds their untamed-feeling psychedelia rife with that same threat of violence, not necessarily thematically as much as sonically, like the songs themselves are the weapon about to be turned on the listener. Maybe the buzz of “Warlock” or the fuckall echo of the prior-issued single “Death in the Woods” (posted here) aren’t out there trying to be “Hammer Smashed Face” or anything, but neither is this the hey-bruh-good-times heavy jams for which Southern California is known these days. Consider the severity of “Turoc Maximus Antonis” or the finally-released screams in closer “Black Noise,” which bookends Psychosis Ritual with the title-track and seems at last to be the point where whatever grim vibe these guys are riding finally consumes them. Mountain Tamer continue to be unexpected and righteous in kind.

Centre El Muusa, Centre El Muusa

centre el muusa centre el muusa

Hypnotic Estonian psychedelic krautrock instrumentals not your thing? Well that sounds like a personal problem Centre El Muusa are ready to solve. The evolved-from-duo four-piece get spaced out amid the semi-motorik repetitions of their self-titled debut (on Sulatron), and that seems to suit them quite well, thanksabunch. Drone trips and essential swirl brim with solar-powered pulsations and you can set your deflectors on maximum and route all the secondaries to reinforce if you want, there’s still a decent chance 9:53 opener an longest track “Turkeyfish” (immediate points, double for the appropriately absurd title) is going to sweep you off what you used to call your feet when that organ line hits at about six minutes in. That’s to say nothing of the cosmic collision later in “Burning Lawa” or the just-waiting-for-a-Carl-Sagan-voiceover “Mia” that follows. Even the 3:46 “Ain’t Got Enough Mojo” lives long enough to prove itself wrong. Interstellar tape transmissions fostered by obvious weirdos in the great out-there in “Szolnok,” named for a city in Hungary that, among other things, hosts the goulash festival. Right fucking on.

Population II, À La Ô Terre

Population II a La o Terre

The first Population II album, a 2017 self-titled, was comprised of two tracks, each long enough to consume a 12″ side. Somehow it’s fitting with the Montreal-based singing-drummer trio’s aesthetic that their second long-player, À la Ô Terre, would take a completely different tack, employing shorter freakouts like “L’Offrande” and “La Nuit” and the garage-rocking “La Danse” and what-if-JeffersonAirplane-but-on-Canadian-mushrooms “À la Porte de Demain” and still-more-drifting finisher “Je Laisse le Soleil Briller” amid the more stretched out “Attaction,” the space-buzzer “Ce n’est Réve” while cutting a middle ground in the greaked-out (I was gonna type “freaked out” and hit a typo and I’m keeping it) “Il eut un Silence dans le Ciel,” which also betrays the jazzy underpinnings that somehow make all of À la Ô Terre come across as progressive instead of haphazard. From the start to the close, you don’t know what’s coming next, and just because that’s by design doesn’t make it less effective. If anything, it makes Population II all the more impressive.

Bantha Rider Stream Binary Sunset Massacre in Full; Album out Tomorrow

Posted in audiObelisk on December 3rd, 2020 by JJ Koczan

bantha rider

Tomorrow is Bandcamp Friday, and among the packed slew of releases for that monthly waived-fee holiday born of the COVID-19 pandemic comes the debut album from Polish instrumentalist heavy rock trio Bantha Rider. The desert-minded three-piece from Warsaw offer a reminder of just how much of the Star Wars canon takes place amid the dunes with Binary Sunset Massacre, and songs like “Rancor’s Delight” and the prior-posted single “De Wanna Wanga” offer burly-toned riffs based around themes taken from the George Lucas/Disney ouevre, which only seems to grow stronger in its cultural presence as each new week brings an episode of The Mandalorian and ever-ubiquitous merchandising. My sister’s house has an inflatable Baby Yoda X-mas decoration in the yard. You can buy Star Wars Le Creuset that looks like Han Solo in carbonite, or a waffle maker that’s shaped like the Millennium Falcon. Should we really be surprised at a record taking place on Tatooine?

Probably not, but Bantha Rider‘s dug-in-deep fandom clearly goes beyond “hey check out Leia in a bikini” grade. The green-skinned pig-guard at Jabba’s palace gets his own song in “The Gamorrean” — just a couple tracks before “Rancor’s Delight,” as itbantha rider binary sunset massacre happens — and “Boonta Eve” refers to a holiday celebrated by the Hutts with a commemorative podrace. Yes, I had to look that one up. The fun of the release, however, extends beyond the references being made, as Bantha Rider careen and twist around one progression and another across the eight included tracks. I’m sure there are people who might come upon Binary Sunset Massacre and not be aware that Sand People always ride single file to hide their numbers or not have picked up on “Pazuzu” as a connection to the actor Max Von Sydow, who was in The Exorcist as well as Episode VII and sundry tie-in media.

I can’t really say if not being familiar with the thematic “source material,” as it were, would affect the listening experience or not, except to speculate that, as with any themed offering, you can put as much into it as you want, and if you want to ignore the Star Wars and just dig on some riffs, well, it’s not like there are lyrics here to rub it in your face, so whatever. While I’d advocate for as complete a listening experience as possible in any situation, it’s not much different than people who listen to political music without concentrating on the politics. Ultimately, you get out from it what you want. I’ll take Binary Sunset Massacre on its own level though and hope for continued exploration of this particular galaxy and its oh-so-blowuppable planets.

Album is streaming in full ahead of its release tomorrow. You’ll find it premiering-ish below, along with some more info, etc.

Enjoy as you will:

Bantha Rider, Binary Sunset Massacre official album premiere

Chris (guitar/visuals) on Binary Sunset Massacre:

“Took us three years to record this album since releasing our EP in 2017. It was a tough ride ’cause our drummer lives 1300km from the rest of the crew for 2 years, so the big issue was to play once in 1-2 month, with heavy logistics to play any show during that period. But after like 5 days, 4-5 hours per day rehearsing new tracks before entering the studio, with great help of Jacek Stasiak we finally recorded our first LP at lovely Kongo Studio January 2020 just before the pandemic outbreak. After mixing, mastering everything by Jacek, making the whole artwork by myself, montaging video by our friend Tomek and big help with the whole publishing and promotion job by Patrick of Piranha Music, it’s done! We are coming back with 54 minutes of instrumental journey from doomy riffing, impros, stoner trips, to dynamic metal punches. This album gathers up our music inspirations mixed with the dusty vibe of Tatooine and other movie mythologies. We’re getting ready to play some shows next year as we hope this Covid fucker dies – so see ya soon Booyooss!!!

“PS. and YES we still have no singer…”

Bantha Rider was formed in Warsaw in 2016. The band consists of Chris (guitar), Art (drums) and Bart (bass). They released amazing self-titled EP in 2017 with 4 instrumental stoner metal killers. EP release was followed by mini-tour with mexican bands Terror Cosmico and Weedsnake.

In 2020 they signed to independent label Piranha Music, to release their full length debut album “Binary Sunset Massacre”. The album, with amazing artwork by band’s guitarist Krzysiek Lesi?ski, sounds like a perfect soundtrack to cruising in the desert, but in a galaxy far, far away.

Hydra Premiere From Light to the Abyss Live Session

Posted in Bootleg Theater on November 23rd, 2020 by JJ Koczan

hydra live session

At this point in the pandemic, I’m going to assume that if you’re reading this you’ve watched a ‘live stream’ of one sort or another, whether that’s actually a band playing live as it goes out or a special airing of a prior-recorded performance or set. And I feel safe making that assumption because it’s been 10 months, we’ve all had a lot of time at home, and my social media feed has been filled with people increasingly wistful in their “I miss live shows” posts. Myself included.

Well, Hydra, from Pleszew, Poland, released their first album, From Light to the Abyss, through Piranha Music this past August. Only together for about a year before issuing the five-tracker, the band quickly prove with it that they’ve got their heads together when it comes to knowing what they want to do in doom rock and classic, darker-tinged rolling riffage. Wearing their Iommi on their collective sleeve, the band’s songs move between the catchy, almost Uncle Acid-ic “No One Loves Like Satan” to the more oldschool doom of “Secrets of the Undead,” with guitarist Dabek (there’s an ogonek on the ‘a’ his name I can’t get to show up in WordPress, and for that I apologize) and bassist Vanat sharing vocal duties atop the steady progression filled out by guitarist Mieszko and drummer Yahoo. They ask little of the listener in terms of indulgences, riff righteously and very clearly came into their debut knowing what they wanted to accomplish in terms of sound. If you can’t respect that, I’ve got nothing for you.

hydra from light to the abyssIn addition to the five cuts from From Light to the Abyss itself, the live session premiering in its 47-minute entirety below also includes the new song “The Unholy Ceremony,” which finds the four-piece ranging into including keys for the first time, already showing a propensity for growth and moving forward from the album, which again, has been out for about three months. The video and audio were recorded at their own Acoustic Studio, which might well be named for the tiles of the drop ceiling situated directly above the band as they play. There are three or four cameras working throughout, the audio is pro-shop, and the band are situated with their amps isolated and Yahoo positioned somewhere that I can’t even tell if he’s facing the other three or somewhere else entirely. He gets his own camera and earns it through his play.

So you’ve seen live steams. Fine. Probably you’ve seen one for a band you already know, maybe that you miss seeing on stage. Here’s a chance to do that other great thing that live music lets you do, and that’s discover something cool you might not have encountered before. I’m not about to tell you Hydra are a genre revolution — they’re not — but they’re a band who wanted to make a racket and they’re doing exactly that here. If that doesn’t get you through to the killer nod at the outset of “Magical Mind” in the video below, chances are it’s your own loss.

Because the songs of From Light to the Abyss are presented out of order, and because it’s a cool record, I’ve included the full album stream from Bandcamp at the bottom of this post as well. Some comment from Vanat and more background follows the clip itself.

Please enjoy:

Hydra, From Light to the Abyss live session at Acoustic Studio premiere

Vanat (bass) on From Light to the Abyss live session:

“During the past few months many of our shows have been cancelled. We really missed playing live and so we got inspired to record a live stream. We had many ideas on how to present our material on the web but we finally settled on recording a full show in our studio (Acoustic Studio) where we have also recorded our first album. We wanted it to sound properly which would be hard to achieve without professional support. The space in the studio was quite small but with the help of our friend Szymon we managed to create a nice video.

“Even though we cannot play many concerts right now, we keep on working. We have recently came up with a new single “The Unholy Ceremony” which will probably appear on the next album, but you can already hear this one on the live stream. In this track we maintain our classic style but we also used a synthesizer for the first time to give it a different vibe.”

38:15 – Magical Mind

HYDRA was formed in 2019 in Pleszew, the hometown of the beautiful stoner doom RED SMOKE FESTIVAL. The band consists of Vanat (bass), Yahoo (drums), Mieszko (guitar) and Dabek (guitar & vocal), who is also well known from another Polish act – Red Scalp.

Piranha Music, an independent label from Toru?, released their full-length debut, “From Light to the Abyss,” on 21 August 2020. The amazing album artwork was designed by Pawel Mioduchowski (of almighty Dopelord).

Bantha Rider Releasing Binary Sunset Massacre Dec. 4; “De Wanna Wanga” Video Posted

Posted in Whathaveyou on November 20th, 2020 by JJ Koczan

Hey there, Star Wars fans. I haven’t seen The Mandalorian at all, but my understanding is it’s a good time to be on board with what’s unquestionably the coolest of the major science-fiction franchises — unless we’re counting Alien, and then there’s no question that’s the coolest — and though each installment of the last trilogy and those side movies seemed to have its share of detractors, the fandom itself persists unabated and across generations. My nephews and their father watch Star Wars together, play the video games and so on. It’s a thing they share. That’s nice.

Set to be added to the non-canon mythology of that particular Galaxy Far, Far Away is the debut album from Polish instrumentalists Bantha Rider. Titled Binary Sunset Massacre, it’s pretty clearly referencing the planet Tatooine with its iconic twin suns, and the title of the new single “De Wanna Wanga,” is what Bib Fortuna says to Luke Skywalker when the latter shows up at Jabba’s palace. You may recall the Bib Fortuna action figure came with the playset. I do.

I wonder if writing an instrumental album about Star Wars counts as fan-fic. I wonder what the message boards would say if they saw this album cover. I wonder if the whole record sounds as cool as the track below.

So many questions:
