AN EYE ON THE UNIVERSE

Band:ABRAHAM
Album:AN EYE ON THE UNIVERSE
Label:PELAGIC
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

ABRAHAM create a barren aural landscape where grand rock faces of guitars loom large over occasional restrained moments of calm sublimity and haunting beauty. Abrasiveness is the word here: ABRAHAM will wash over you like a sudden cloudburst in the desert and make you feel like jagged rock exposed to the elements. Whoeever loves CULT OF LUNA's "The Beyond" -album most: raise the torches, this is for you! ABRAHAM was formed under the name "Le Baron Vampire" in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2007 by KRUGER guitar player Jacques Vierdaz and a few mates from uni. The band later changed their name to „ABRAHAM“ and has played lots of DEVASTATING LIVE shows since with bands such as Celane, Knut, Kruger, Mumakil and many others. AND no, by any means, they are not a christian metal band ;-)

For fans of CULT OF LUNA, ISIS, NEUROSIS, KRUGER...

 

 

EXIT EDEN

Band:EARTHSHIP
Album:EXIT EDEN
Label:PELAGIC
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

EARTHSHIP surge ahead like a nuclear-powered icebreaker through the Barents Sea, laden with mighty riffs, tons of groove and home-brewn whiskey. EARTHSHIP was launched by former THE OCEAN drummer Jan Oberg this year and his colleagues Dennis Boettcher on drums and Bastian Gutschke on bass guitar. THE OCEAN mainman Robin Staps joined the band on second guitars shortly afterwards. "I have not been involved in the songwriting at all though, it is entirely Jan's creative work", comments Staps. The band is a newborn baby that came to life in the spring of 2010 after a long drinking night in Berlin: "Jan has been my neighbour for years here in Berlin, we've known each other for ages and had our first band together more than 12 years ago... we grew up going to shows and playing music together. Jan is a very skilled songwriter and I was always into his stuff, so when he asked me to join his band I agreed right away", comments Staps. "Exit Eden" is the debut release by this new Berlin-based behemoth, recorded by captain Oberg himself at his own Hidden Planet Studios. It is the grim, ugly soundtrack to a rough and dangerous passage through dark, icy waters. Board the Earthship for a ride through the vast black sea of doom, metal and prog n'roll.

For fans of CROWBAR, BARONESS, MASTODON, IRON MONKEY, THE OCEAN and ZOZOBRA.

LA LIGNE APRE

Band:TORMENTA
Album:LA LIGNE APRE
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

Formed in 2006 TORMENTA is currently the meeting between Vincent Beysselance (drums, cello) and Jeff Grimal (guitar) who had in the past and present major and decisive musical experiences (Cheval de frise, Elusiv, Let Jesus Bleed) This recording is the result of a two-year work, born from a passion for dark and oppressive atmospheres. ‘La ligne apre’ is based on a project that retains the vitality and gravity of metal music but tends to belong to no definite musical style. Careful consideration of the structure led to numerous productions that we had to put together to create tension, avoid weariness or to do away with evidence. The work on rhythmic or melodic superpositions or convergences has sometimes created involuntary hypnotic effects. However our desire to preserve the coherence, the link and harmony between the different elements has allowed us to avoid the trap of technical coldness. The lyricism is clearly defined. In the end, the 7 tracks of ‘La ligne apre’ waver between avant-garde music and more conventional references. The recording technique must remain secret.

With the Extraordinary Vincent Beysselance, CHEVAL DE FRISE’s drummer

LA CHALEUR

Band:PAPAYE
Album:LA CHALEUR
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

"PAPAYE is a 3-piece outfit full of vitamins and tender flesh. Their music is like sitting on a high-speed train with needles for cushion, perfectly uncomfortable. Even though the band members also take part in Pneu, Room204 and Kommandant Cobra, according to the Africantape label manager it's the best thing they've done, then again, he also said he didn't want to be a dick about it. I personally hate side projects; it's like a bunch of bastard kids that all look the same. But I love PAPAYE. Why? Because, it's like juicy pop with sour edge to it, the only fruit you can't put in a smoothie with out ruining all the other ones. Their references are probably somewhere in between sweet Deerhoof melodies, early Don Caballero time signatures and US Maple for the "what the hell are they doing? Oh right I get it" parts. The band is concise and powerful, with no other intent than pure excitement." - Papier Tigre Magazine

RIYL - Deerhoof, Don Caballero,US Maple Etc...
