Just months after the launch of Mirrors, another new EP from Come Taste The Misery hits the scene, this time leading with a new set of stories and a heavy use of contrast between melody and fuzz.
Really well done, a refreshingly original artist with a thoughtful way of framing ideas and arrangements.
Driving with a five-minute epic that feels all at once like retro grunge and contemporary electronic rock, Yellow Majesty hit the scene with passionate songwriting and sound design alike.
This project seems fit to accompany the angst & uncertainty, the isolated intensity, of 2020. Quite possibly a personal favorite from the band so far.
Back once again with a five-track EP of pristinely captured originals, Latvia’s Come Taste The Misery drive with classic grunge and powerful indie melodies throughout the superb project Mirrors.
Michigan doom rock outfit Bog Wizard take listeners on a uniquely crafted journey through a role playing world of fantasy & fierce musicality.
Complexity combines with pile-driving power to root the song to the floor. The fact that the band switch effortlessly between pedal-to-the-metal and snatches of full-on syncopation makes Backsheepish an exhilarating, adrenalin-soaked listen.
From lyrical weirdness through uninhibited musical expression, Can’t Wait consistently keeps listeners engaged, often on their toes. Contrast is utilised brilliantly, droning moments of quiet desperation are juxtaposed by sudden passionate outbursts and increasing tempos.
Sometimes things get intimate, other times they stand back and stare at the world, attempting to deliver an explanation.
The whole set-up feels brilliantly nostalgic, awesomely passionate – proceeding to whisper then scream out on behalf of your anxieties; always melodically, always with a certain poetic lyrical intention that again feels genuinely new.
In short, Tragedy Channel have crafted something unexpected – something that caters to our desire to re-live the nineties; those alternative rock hits that surprised and satisfied in ways we could never have predicted.
Effected vocals detail an intimate and somewhat harrowing story-line, laying bare a mid-album Nirvana vibe in many ways – these short phrases, rhyming couplets that kick hard and leave plenty of space for reflection in between.
