Jyotisavedanga: Thermogravimetry Warp Continuum

May 31, 2018
viralstampede

continuum.jpg

Keeping war metal the foundation, Jyotisavedanga splice the genes of numerous genres to sew them together to create something that is entirely unsettling, depraved and unique. Jyotisavedanga ignore genre boundaries within their debut full length Thermogravimetry Warp Continuum as they usher forth six tracks of mind warping and ear drum destroying tracks upon you. Jyotisavedanga make their presence very well known throughout this release as each track is a chaotic and forceful sonic endeavor that is life endangering and incredibly explosive. Jyotisavedanga mix their metallic juggernauts with light devouring atmosphere to make their release that much more dangerous and foreboding.

Jyotisavedanga begin their release with Distress Signal_Source Unknown, a static filled distress call that is as eerie and discomforting as you could possibly imagine. Right from the get go this track sets the foreboding and ominous tone that will follow throughout the remainder of the record. Immediately Jyotisavedanga make you feel uncomfortable and unwelcome and right then you know that you are in for something that is sinister. After the distress call you are treated to an all out aural assault by the name of Quantum Integers Systematic Deduc. This track rampages forth from the onset providing you with a grinding madhouse of a track that accosts you on all sides until you are beaten in to a bloody pulp.

The tracks that follow Distress Signal_Source Unknown follow the pattern of Quantum Integers Systematic Deduc as each one presents you with a raw and completely monstrous sound. Each track is unrelenting and dehumanizing as each one stampedes forth with murderous and malevolent intent. Never can you escape the blistering chaos that Jyotisavedanga dishes out as they roll from one track to the next never giving you a moments reprieve. Thermogravimetry Warp Continuum is a blitzkrieg of a record as it lasts for only a half hour, but that half hour can seem like an eternity once you become sucked in to the life consuming vortex that Jyotisavedanga has created.

While each track is a flesh tearing offering, each track is steeped in malevolent and blackened atmosphere as well. The atmosphere that Jyotisavedanga creates is soul stealing and incredibly venomous. It consumes light and submerges you in pure bitter darkness for the entirety of Thermogravimetry Warp Continuum’s run time. On all fronts, Thermogravimetry Warp Continuum is a vicious and monstrous record. Once you press play you become trapped within the ever expanding vortex that these heathens have created. This is an unsettling, harsh, punishing and warped release that you just won’t be able to stop listening to.

The unique blend of numerous genres here works so well. This record is cohesive, well crafted and well  written providing you with one hell of a unique, heavy and incredibly intoxicating listen. This debut for Jyotisavedanga couldn’t have come out any better than it did as this is one excellent record.

Thermogravimetry Warp Continuum will be released June 6, 2018 through Larval Productions.

ISA: Chimera

ISA

Psychedelic, technical, riddled with death and dream like soundscapes as well as a smattering of haunting atmospheres for good measure ISA takes you on a complete journey. Chimera is the name of the record and it holds eleven hallucinatory tracks that steal your mind away and have it wander through continuous, vibrant and vast soundscapes all throughout. This release plays as one long track broken up in to parts and the way in which ISA has woven each of the parts together to create a cohesive sound is great. Your dream like trance is never broken while listening through Chimera as each track bleeds in to the next continuing your venture through soundscape after soundscape.

Chimera is unique, dynamic and fresh. This isn’t straight forward death metal by any means as ISA incorporates many sounds and elements in to their sound to create something wholly unique. While there are many elements at play throughout this release, nothing becomes dizzying or lost in the fray. Everything here works in harmony to create a mind bending and hallucinatory sound that keeps you enchanted. ISA changes ever so effortlessly from dark, grim death riddled passages to near serene dream like passages that take your mind further and further away from you. One moment you can be subject to harsh blast beats and manic screams and the next you are treated to a calming atmospheric acoustic sound. Never does ISA lurch from one to the next and back again as they keep everything fluid and cohesive.

The overall sound that ISA gives off is mesmerizing to say the least. Chimera certainly is a record that you can get lost within for some time. This offering has a great ability to steal you away from the world for its run time and let you bask in all of its technical, progressive and atmospheric glory. It is easy to sit and listen to this record over and over again and it is an easy record to want to sit and listen to. None of the eleven songs over stay their welcome as they fade out in to obscurity before the next track fades in to existence and your dream continues on.

Chimera is a well rounded release, one with great musicianship, great atmospheric qualities, interesting progressive tendencies and much more. Chimera engages you right from the get go never to let your mind out of its atmospheric clutches until the very end. This is a fluid, cohesive, well rounded, heavy, atmospheric and down right great release all around. Chimera is a mind contorting effort that sticks with you once you are done listening only for you to come back to experience it again and again.
