News: Our Ceasing Voice - When The Headling Hit Home

Based on the upcoming novel by Sebastian Obermeir, Our Ceasing Voice's new 2011 album pursues the concept established with their 2009 EP Steadied Stars In The Morphium Sky, while the development to a darker, more dynamic sound is clearly no......ticeable. Beautiful and saddening at the same time, the Austrians draw attention to fragility, passionately making one's flesh creep and thereby portraying a dramatic story full of yearning and desperation.

How it will end, however, lies only in your hands.

Album: Lavinia - There Is Light Between Us EP

Band: Lavinia
Album: There Is Light Between Us EP
Label: The Mylene Sheath
Year: 2010

01. Destroy Yourself
02. A Damning Confession
03. Fires
04. Windmills
05. Bone And Arrow

In Roman mythology, Lavinia was the daughter of Latinus and Amata. She was the lone child of the king and was eventually courted by many men in Ausonia who hoped to become the next king of Latium. Turnus, ruler of the Rutuli, was promised Lavinia, having the favor of Queen Amata. However, King Latinus is later warned by the oracle Faunus that his daughter is not to marry a Latin, and eventually Lavinia weds Aeneas, son of Aphrodite and progenitor of the Romans. In Book 7 of the Aeneid, during the sacrifice at the altars of the gods, Lavinia’s hair catches on fire, an omen promising glorious days to come for Lavinia and war for all Latins.

It is within a shroud of this same mythological fire that Lavinia, a new band hailing from Boston, MA, introduces their debut EP “There Is Light Between Us”. The band consists of current & former members of indie rock heavyweights such as Caspian, Eksi Ekso, The Burning Paris, On Fire, and the Fatal Flaw, but should never be confused as some sort of “side project”. Bleak, dark, and unforgiving - Lavinia trudge through terrain that is much different than any of the members other projects. And while there is an underlying hope in each song - the album dwells in an unshakable depression. A feeling of isolation and loneliness further exposed by the heart-on-the-sleeve vocals of guitarist/vocalist Nate Shumaker (ex-Eksi Ekso, On Fire, The Burning Paris, Everdown), that brings to mind a combination of Red House Painter’s Mark Kozelek and The Cure’s Robert Smith. Pair that up with the commanding bass wielding of Philip Jaimeson (main axe man of Caspian), the towering drum fills of Alex Mihm (Eksi Ekso), and the slide guitar & banjo atmospherics of Josh Megyesy (ex-On Fire, The Burning Paris, The Fatal Flaw), and you’ve got the makings of a band who’s sound shares more in common with roman mythology, than it does their own contemporaries and peers.

Recorded in multiple locations throughout 2010, including New Alliance with Ethan Dussault and Verse Media with John Helmig, mastered by Jason Martin (Starflyer 59) at Jason Martin Recording in Riverside, CA, the album captures the sound of a band discovering new and exciting sonic territory with no rules in place. A band creating music that they want to create, for the sake of creating it to exist. Doesn’t sound like a novel idea to you? Well, unfortunately it is in today's music industry and it’s incredibly refreshing to hear how easily this sound of creative freedom can come across when a band effortlessly executes without paying mind to outside pressures or expectations. The band takes us through five tracks in just under 28 minutes which brings to mind the moodiness of bands such as Red House Painters, Mogwai, The Cure, early Crooked Fingers, Starflyer 59, and Scott Walker while incorporating the heaviness of behemoths such as Black Sabbath, My Bloody Valentine, Isis, Jesu, and The Twilight Sad. The combination of these elements seamlessly meld together to create a document of visionary proportions.

Much like Turnus declaring war on Aeneas after losing the mythological Lavinia to him, our Lavinia comes forward with all the emotional intensity of such a war. Turnus was ultimately destroyed and his people captured by Aeneas, though Lavinia’s father, Latinus, died in the war, teaching us progress cannot be made without sacrifice. The sound of Lavinia’s debut EP “There Is Light Between Us” embodies this philosophy to it’s very definition.

07. Affliction XXVII II MMIX

Blindead was founded in Gdynia, Poland in 1999 by Michal Zimorski (Zima) - bass and Mateusz Smierzchalski (Havoc) - guitar. Few months later, Marek Zielinski (Deadman) - guitar, Konrad Ciesielski - drums and Patryk Adamczyk - vocals, joined the band. It was a casual project made for pleasure rather than a professional band. Besides, in the same time, Havoc became the guitarist of Behemoth and it was his priority.

Initially, the group under the name of Incorrect Personality recorded a demo material. In 2002, the band decided to record their first album with Arek “Malta” Malczewski in Hendrix studio and in Tower studio in the city of Wroclaw. However, session wasn’t finished because the singer Patryk Adamczyk decided to leave I.P.

Searching of new frontman took over one year. Finally, in the middle of 2003 Patryk Zwolinski (Nick) showed up. By that time he was a member of Neolithic. Due to his voice tone and excellent contact with the rest of the line up, he turned out to be perfect for the frontman position. Definitely, it was a breakthrough for them. Two months later, the group under new name, recorded demo material, titled “Dig For Me”.

After his farewell tour in United States, Havoc left Behemoth, inter alia to devote playing in Blindead. From this moment, the band was playing regular rehearsals. The outcomes came immediately, as the style of the group developed.

In January 2004, another line up change took place. One of the founders, Michal Zimorski, decided to leave the band because of the differences on the musics surface. His function was taken over by Brovar, known from cooperation with Behemoth, Immemorial and other bands.

In July 2005, in the city of Debica, Blindead recorded six tracks with help of Janusz Bryt, in his Screw Factory Studio. These songs belong to the first long play of Blindead, entitled “Devouring Weakness”. The album was released on 5th July 2006 by effort of Empire Records. Shortly after Brovar decides to leave ‘cause of his job as tour / stage manager which takes most of his time. Piotr ‘Zvierzak’ Kawalerowski takes his place and joins the band.

The debut album got really good reviews in several magazines and web zines, which helped them to get on the first tour all over Poland with Hermh, Hell-Born and Massemord.

During the works over new material the band decides to search for a person who would be responsible for the samples and soundscapes. After couple of weeks Bartosz Hervy (Agonised by Love) was invited for a jam in the rehearsal room. He got into the material pretty fast and firstly became a session guy for the recordings of the new album which took place in August 2007 once again in the Screw Factory Studio with Janusz Bryt as a co-producer. The band invited a long time friend Waclaw ‘Vogg’ Kieltyka (Decapitated) for a guest appearance. He recorded an amazing Accordion solo for the song called “Phaze II: Phenomena”.

November 2007 brings another tour in Poland, this time with the leaders of Polish experimental grindcore - Antigama and Nyia. Hervy was still on the board as a session musician, but that was about to change shortly after that tour. The band was sure that he’s the right person so they asked him to become a full time member.

At the end of the year Blindead got an offer from Tomek Jurek (Deadline Agency / Shortcut by that time, currently Asymmetry Booking) to put one song on the promotional compilation called “Shortcut to Polish Music” along with the bands like: Riverside, Behemoth, Antigama, Nyia, Proghma-C and many others. Couple of months later Tomek invited them to play as a support act for The Ocean and then on two shows with Cult of Luna.

After that gigs the band signed a new record deal with Foreshadow Music and Deadline Records.

Shortly before the official release date Blindead played as a support act for Neurosis and A Storm of Light in Warsaw’s Stodola Club which was a total blast for them!

“Autoscopia: Murder in Phazes” came out in Poland on August 18th 2008. The worldwide release was set on October 2008. The second album is definitely the best what those 6 gentlemen did up to date and is promising a lot for the future.

Blindead released their’s first EP “Impulse” in 2009, which consisted 3 songs of total length approx 30minutes.

The latest album is “Affliction XXIX II MXMVI”, released in Poland via Mystic Production on November 26th 2010. Also, entire album is available for listen-only at band’s MySpace profile since 25th November 2010.

Barn Owl is the guitar drone collaboration of Evan Caminiti and Jon Porras. On their new release for Thrill Jockey, Ancestral Star, they continue to explore the Morricone tinged Western soundtrack side of the genre—first pioneered by the heavyweights Earth—that they have done so thoroughly and competently on their previous albums. For this album, Caminiti and Porras took their time in the studio and expanded the instrumentation on the songs by experimenting with bowed guitar, and by inviting Marielle Jakobsons to play violin, the Norman Conquest to contribute eerie chanting vocals, and Portraits to add some nuanced percussion. Technically, this is their most accomplished and complex album. They worked more congruently on the composition and sequence of the songs—and the album has a nice continuity of atmosphere.

Flawlessly moving between post-rock, post-metal and hardcore General Lee are one of the next batch of twisted beautiful brutal bands to emerge from Béthune, France.

Since 2002, General Lee never stopped to look forward their own definition of chaos, melting intensity, blackness and emotion in a shape that belongs to abrasive hardcore music. After some recording try-outs they definitely head out with a mammoth disc in the name of Hannibal ad Portas and in November of 2010 Roads. Those albums play with feelings and contrasts by creating a tense climate near to the break. Icy and oppressive atmospheres, heavy and melancholic riffing are mixed ton an abrasive hardcore and a blowing off and cathartic screaming. A music that blurs and destroys the usual plans to be reconstructed in pain. One of a kind heavy doom.

In 2002 I saw the video of False Lies by Exhausted and I was thrilled by the video and the song. Exhausted was just a band name that they used to send the song in because the band had broken up and the old band name was Post Human. Since then I was searching everywhere to find it in a good quality with no luck.
A few days before I made contact with their drummer Link and finally I got it in my hands. So I thought that maybe someone will be searching this EP too for years, or just someone will appreciate this band.
Link, thank you once again!

False Lies is still a great song and one of the best videos ever. If you haven't watched it yet take the time to.

After a hibernation of nearly 104 weeks, Watertank gives a difficult birth to 6 new tracks that never been released, but helped to shape a new line up and fresh "right in the nuts" compositions.

Since 2007 they have traveled ways leading gradually to a more "pop" feeling, while accentuating a heavier sound.

Since its inception in 2003, Watertank had the opportunity to perform on stage with : Torche, Kylesa, The Ocean, Capricorns, Lair Of The Minotaur and many more…

Album: Humanfly - Darker Later

Band: Humanfly
Album: Darker Later
Label: Brew Records
Year: 2010

01. This Is Where Your Parents Fucked
02. English And Proud And Stupid And Racist
03. Stew For The Murder Minded
04. The Enemy Of My Enemy Is Me
05. Darker Later
06. Heavy Black Snow (feat. Rose Kemp)

Humanfly began in late 2000 following the dissolution of brothers (literal brothers, and also brothers in the MC5 sense of the word) John and Andy Sutcliffe’s old band Canvas. The line up was completed with the addition of J*R bassist Mat Dale and drummer Dave Jones.

"We spent the first year or so developing ideas and getting used to looking at each others heads in a practise room in Leeds until late 2001 when we began playing shows.
Our first release came in the form of a split 7” with fellow Leeds peoples Kill Yourself (who feature James and Andy from the pretty massive That Fucking Tank) in 2003, followed a year later by the release of our first album, ‘A God Among Insects’, released via Calculated Risk Products. A year later the label ran out of money (what a massive surprise) and we were without a home.

By 2005 we had grown bored of playing fast music and in the interests of progression we decided that we should give our songs more time develop outside of the one and half minutes we had initially given them to do so in. With that in mind, we started writing “impossibly long songs” and eventually recorded them with our bud Ben Gardener. Ben is a dude (literally and in the Bill and Ted sense of the word) and anyone who knows him can attest to this fact. I like a good fact.

Anyway, what with us not having a label, we decided it would be a great idea to dig a big hole and throw some money into it and release it ourselves. It came back. It looked great. People bought it. And then a lovely man, a total dude some might say (literally and in the Ben Gardener/Bill and Ted sense of the word) called Dave stepped up to the plate and decided to give it an international release via his label 20 Buck Spin (The Obsessed, Coffins, Sleep, The Endless Blockade) based in Olympia, Washington. For those of you who aren’t aware of lands that exist beyond your own back yard, this is in America, where milkshakes and Seinfeld comes from. Not bad!
The album received great reviews and it was swiftly followed by a split 12” with Queen of Swords (Liam from Trencher’s other band) on the London based label Eyes of Sound, which is run by a nice man named Ryan. Thanks Ryan.
In between all of this we supplied tracks for numerous compilations and samplers. Shows are a constant and we have toured the UK and Europe many times over the years and have recently returned from headlining Mareira Fest in Spain.

Cracking on with things is something we like to do and so we began banging out some more songs at our practice room which sounded different to the stuff we had put together on ‘II’. The motivation here is progression and we kick out the jams in a different way because, well, we fucking feel like it; and in the interests of keeping us into what we do, that is what must happen, and thankfully it does. Can you dig it?

Anyway, with 20 Buck Spin not being in a position to put out our next record, we asked Brew Records (located in our fair city of Leeds) if they might be interested in putting it out. They were and as a result of them being into what we do, this new album, entitled ‘Darker Later’, will be coming out on November 8th. It features six songs, one of which is the epic ‘Heavy Black Snow’ featuring the vocal talents of Rose Kemp (One Little Indian Records) and was also recorded by the brother Ben Gardener. We dig it. Hopefully the people of the world will give it four thumbs up too."

Codes In The Clouds, the quintet of Morahan, Peeling, Smith, Major and Power from Dartford, Kent have found a firm place in the vast growing instrumental rock scene.

With their harmonious and blissful sound they weave guitar melodies, liable to explode any minute. If you still can’t imagine intense music without vocals then you will be surprised how easily these boys will let you forget this prejudice. Energetic and charming at once, surprising and unpredictable at all times.

Codes In The Clouds signed to Erased Tapes Records in 2007 and quickly received critical acclaim from the likes of BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens and online portal Drowned In Sound for their first Single 'Distant Street Lights / Fractures': 'Possibly the most gripping piece of music you'll hear this year' (8/10) Single of the Week.

With a sold out label showcase at London's Roundhouse in 2007, the band accompanied Texan band This Will Destroy You on a string of sold out shows throughout 2008. Shows with Jeniferever, The Boxer Rebellion and 65daysofstatic ensued. Their debut album 'Paper Canyon', produced by Justin Lockey (Bloc Party, Yourcodenameis:milo) received a worldwide release in summer 2009. 'A perfectly presented first statement of their intentions...sending jolts from shoulders to fingertips' (8/10) – Clash. The band then embarked on a headline UK and Ireland tour before bringing the year to a close accompanying Sweden’s pg.lost on a European tour.

October 18th, 2010 will see the release of a remix album entitled 'Paper Canyon Recycled' featuring the likes of Paul Mullen (The Automatic), Tom Hodge, Maybeshewill, Worriedaboutsatan, Machinefabriek and Library Tapes – not to mention label mates Rival Consoles and Nils Frahm.

Paper Canyon Recycled stemmed from an open call, giving fans and fellow artists the opportunity to submit a remix of CITC’s 2009 debut album release Paper Canyon. The band received over 100 track submissions. The skills of one particular entrant, Brighton-based producer and musician Guy Andrews (iambic), impressed the band so much that they have invited him to co-produce their next studio album at Brighton Electric in September. And as if this wasn’t enough good news for this young producer, Factotum Films in Scotland shot a spellbinding music video for his remix of 'Distant Street Lights' to coincide with this release.

Having received so many wonderful renditions from all around the world, CITC and Erased Tapes want to give something back. Every remix album sold will help Friends of the Earth's vital campaigning work for a safe climate and a healthy planet; in collaboration with Fairshare Music UK and Gogoyoko, Iceland. 'Paper Canyon Recycled' will also be printed on 100% recycled eco-board and includes a download code for 5 exclusive bonus tracks.

Album: The Ocean - Anthropocentric

Artist: The Ocean
Album: Anthropocentric
Label: Metal Blade Records / Pelagic Records
Year: 2010

01. Anthropocentric
02. The Grand Inquisitor I: Karamazov Baseness
03. She Was The Universe
04-For He That Wavereth...
05. The Grand Inquisitor II: Roots & Locusts
06. The Grand Inquisitor III: A Tiny Grain of Faith
07. Sewers Of The Soul
08. Wille Zum Untergang
09. Heaven TV
10. The Almightiness Contradiction

It’s fair to say that The Ocean’s latest endeavour divided their fan base somewhat. The release of Heliocentric earlier this year saw the group in a whole new dynamic, now a band as opposed to a collective, complete with a new singer. Heliocentric also marked a significant change in sound for the band, taking out a large chunk of the metal found on masterpiece Precambrian, replacing it with a lighter atmosphere, amongst other things. While most were unhappy with this change, The Ocean succeeded in what they set out to do with Heliocentric, creating an album that is just as worthy of sitting alongside their already outstanding discography. In many ways, Anthropocentric is the perfect completion of the double album, being of just as high quality and rounding out the band’s critique of Christianity in interesting fashion.

While Anthropocentric doesn’t hark back to the heaviness of the band’s earlier efforts, it does provide the perfect contrast to the lighter Heliocentric. Opening jaunt and title track ‘Anthropocentric’ signals this straight away, exploding out of the blocks with layers of sludgy guitar and growls. Much of the record follows in similar fashion, with the traditional Ocean heaviness juxtaposing beautifully with the band’s newly found atmosphere.

Again with Anthropocentric, Robin Stapps has shown he is an absolute genius when it comes to song writing and arrangements. One only has to look at songs such as album highlight ‘She Was The Universe’ for confirmation of this. Elsewhere, the brilliantly named ‘Sewers of the Soul’ displays some excellent work by bassist Louis Jucker in tandem with Stapp and Julian Lido’s duelling guitars. Drummer Luc Hess also deserves kudos for yet another amazingly consistent effort, with some very impressive fills to be found (‘Heaven TV’ and the title track).

Vocalist Loic Rosetti has improved exponentially on Anthropocentric, with no awkward moments to be seen. As with Heliocentric, there are still a great deal more cleans to be found here than on the band’s earlier efforts, however Rosetti seems much more confident on his second outing. In fact there are a large number of vocally impressive moments, specifically the title track and the first two parts of ‘The Grand Inquisitor,’ where Rosetti utilises both his clean and heavy vocals without them coming across forced, as in parts of Heliocentric.

Essentially, if you weren’t a fan of Heliocentric, the band’s latest effort isn’t going to scream ‘classic!’ out at you straight away, proving to be a natural progression for the band. However, the more atmospheric approach to song writing has actually worked in the band’s favour, particularly on tracks such as ‘The Grand Inquisitor III,’ giving off an almost Portishead feel with its light electronics female vocals. In fact, much of the lighter moments of the record are highlights, with tracks such as closer ‘The Almightiness Contradiction’ benefiting greatly from the lighter guitars and orchestration. Rosetti also excels on the closer, with his cleans matching the almost ‘pretty’ strings of the track perfectly.

Anthropocentric is definitely a marked improvement on Heliocentric, showing the band is much more comfortable with their new sound this time around. However, it is unlikely to change any opinions of the band drawn post-Heliocentric, as this album, while quite heavier, is in much the same vein as its counterpart. With the completion of their double album, it is clear The Ocean needed the change in direction, if only to fuel them creatively. In this reviewer’s opinion, despite Heliocentric’s shaky start, the experimentation has been an unbounded success. Anthropocentric is everything great about The Ocean, elaborate concepts mixed with technical proficiency and outstanding song writing. Who are we to stop them experimenting? -

One of the first Italian indie bands of the 2000s to gain some attention abroad, post-rockers Giardini di Mirò formed in Cavriago, near Reggio Emilia, in the second half of the 1990s. Their first self-titled EP was self-released in 1998, followed one year later by the Iceberg EP on Gammapop. By then the lineup was comprised of guitarists Corrado Nuccini and Jukka Reverberi, Mirko Venturelli on bass, keyboardist Luca Di Mira, and Lorenzo Lanzi on drums, often helped by collaborator Emanuela Reverberi (violin, trumpet). After signing with Homesleep, Giardini di Mirò released their first album,Rise and Fall of Academic Drifting. Considered by many critics as one of the best Italian debuts of the period, the record showed a band openly influenced by post-rock acts such as Godspeed You Black Emperor! and, most notably, Mogwai, but extremely able to create interesting and sonically adventurous soundscapes. The only two proper songs on the album were sung by guests Matteo Agostinelli(from Yuppie Flu) and Tram's Paul Anderson. The Soft Touch EP and the remix collection The Academic Rise of Falling Drifters followed in 2002. Released in 2003,Punk...Not Diet! was a more song-oriented work, thanks to the contributions of singer Alessandro Raina. Guests on the record -- which was also released in Germany by 2nd Rec -- included Christian Kleine, Styrofoam, and Nitrada. Released in 2004, Hits for Broken Hearts and Asses collected the first two EPs along with tracks recorded during the same time period, while 2006's North Atlantic Treaty of Love included both new tracks and remixes, and was released first on two separate 12"s and then as a CD. In the meantime, Francesco Donadello had replaced Lanzi on drums. In 2006 Nuccini released his first solo album, Matters of Love and Death, and so did Di Mira, whose debut -- under the moniker Pillow -- was titled Flowing Seasons. Dividing Opinions was released in January 2007. With Raina no longer in the band, vocal duties were shared by Reverberi and Nuccini.

Often celebrated for her intense vocal acrobatics in heavy-hitting bands like Made Out of Babies, Battle of Mice and the supergroup Spylacopa (featuring members of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Candiria and Isis), Christmas' solo debut finds her pushing the range of her already iconoclastic genre-melding work.

Christmas's band, Made Out of Babies, is currently writing their fourth full-length album, scheduled to be released in the spring of 2011.

Arktika is a band from Cologne, Germany,was founded in 2008 and got their name after the Russian icebreaker class, the Arktika-class. The band consists out of five members: Marc (vocals), Jürgen (guitars), Felix (bass), Tim (guitars) and Jürgen (drums).

This is their second release and their first full length album. Total run time is 60 minutes. Their sound can be described as post-rock, post-metal or sludge and most of their songs reach the ten-minute-mark, with some slower, really epic parts just to rock out faster and more energetic the very next second. You might could compare them to a mixture between bands like Explosions In The Sky, Mogwai, Daturah and Envy or Fall of Efrafa. Arktika sounds like a nuclear powered icebreaker.
