The word gargantuan would seem like an insult to Score One For Safety's new, epic Castles EP; daring to do what no one has done before, Score One For Safety fuses heavy-handed and distorted Hardcore with the more tranquil and ambiotic Post-Rock with magnificent produce - 'Castles 2' recreates the eerie feeling of your impending death, about to pounce whilst your back is turned, finally turning into a short but nonetheless mind-blowing passage of pure atmospherical hardcore. 'Castles 1' is Score One For Safety giving birth to the mysterious and violent mammoth that is 'Castles 1' - A titanic Odyssey with crushing yet melodic riffs with SOFS's singer screaming much like the sirens in the Illiad. Breaking down one last time, the music lulls you into a false sense of security - until finally the army of SOFS defiantly rings out their noble and majestic gang-vocal, hardcore-esque battle chant upon you - creating a feeling like you have truly witnessed the death of nobility. With a plethora of soundscapes, Score One For Safety conquer all, don't miss them in the coming year. Long live SOFS - David RobsonMyspace
Caldera had been around for a bit of time now, roaming around the Nancy musical scene, whetting their finest tunes and getting ready for the final attack. The time has come now, a time to unleash a roaring fury that has been kept tamed for too long. The band has signed their first album and recorded it with the talented Serge Morratel at the Rec Studio in Geneva, Switzerland, obviously a long time commitment for Atropine and Radar Swarm always marked with success (through Year of no light, Tantrum, Metronome Charisma among others). Caldera’s sound can be pictured as the infernal encounter between the most epic side of a now ageing heavy metal recently revamped by the arcane Impure Wilhelmina and the hazy atmospheres developed by combos such as the post-metalheads Capricorns, not to mention the common love for a tight as Hell riffage they share with the latter’s brother in arms, Taint. Rather than going straight to the point, Caldera deliberately uses sideways, takes you through the filthiest detours but stay assured you'll get your load of insane headbanging listening to these tracks. That's what it's all about.
“Mist Through Your Consciousness” has been recorded and mixed by Serge Morattel at Rec Studio, Geneva, Switzerland (Knut, Overmars).
Mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East Cambridge, MA (Converge, Keelhaul, Knut)
Complete Artwork was made by Canadian Artist Chimere Noire.
By the way Caldera continues to explore its own audio representations and confirms its will to materialize instrumental negative riffing. -myspace
