Clawing: Labour

September 30, 2018
viralstampede

Album Artwork.jpg

Totaling near thirty minutes, Labour is a track that is separated in to parts by spoken word that spin a harrowing tale of drug addiction and that the only thing that brings this person in the story any happiness is digging a hole. Labour is consuming, enveloping, atmospheric, ambient, harrowing, melancholy, gripping and so many more descriptors that could not do the weight of the music justice. Clawing has a great ability to draw you in to their music, gripping you tightly and bringing you along for the tale that they weave. This track is broken down exceptionally giving plenty of time to tell the tale as well as completely encompass you in the dark and melancholic ambiance that they provide.

As Labour swells up from out of the darkness, it begins with ambient noises of dirt being dug accompanied by melancholic guitar tones that comes complete with one striking line, “will you put me out to pasture?”. From here on, Labour creeps along at a slow burning pace, ever filling you with darkness and ever encompassing you in bitter, cold and mind breaking atmospheres and ambiance. This ambiance is filled with hopelessness, devoid of all light and humanity. As Labour marches forth, it guides you down darkened corridors, ever pressing your mind back in to the shadows, ever needling at your emotions, making you feel unsettled and uneasy.

Labour brings everything down to earth, as it spins a tale that hits close to home not only for me, but for many others out there. The overall sound of this release is one that represents a lot of emotion that goes along with dealing with addiction. It is dark, twisted, grounded, melancholic and terrifying all in the same. Clawing has presented something here that evokes a lot of the emotions that their track is trying to portray. Every note can be felt and the ambiance hangs over you like a darkened cloud never to fade until the final note has receded back into obscurity.

This is a great release, one that is grounded in reality and one that can hit home for a lot of people. The music overall is great, the noise elements, the ambiance, everything about it is well done. Mix that in with a story that hits you like a ton of bricks, and one that really evokes emotions that you may not have wanted to touch on, you get a release that really draws you in. Overall, Labour is a very solid release, one that should be heard.

Labour will be released October 31, 2018.

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.

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.

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.

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.
