HANDS THAT PLUCK

Band:CAINA
Album:HANDS THAT PLUCK
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Began solely by Andrew Curtis Brignell while still in his teens, the young British musician already had this unique vision manifested by combining the likes of raw primitive black metal and indie-rock/shoegaze/4AD influences, combining and mixing such influences before it became this trend where countless dime-adozen bands today attempt to incorporate and mix such genres in their own typically executed music.

CAINA was already ahead of its time nonetheless, and already seen as a unique vision by many critics and journalists would compare CAINA as a mix between BURZUM, MOGWAI, and THE RED HOUSE PAINTERS, respectively. Almost like if the 4AD, Mute, or Matador labels would release a black metal album, usually anything by CAINA would be it.

Along with many splits and EPs at CAINA’s disposal, “Hands That Pluck” is the fourth album in the CAINA legacy, following the two critically acclaimed albums “Mourner” and “Temporary Antennae”. Culminating in pretty much everything CAINA has amassed in its musical career, “Hands That Pluck” is the most ambitious CAINA album to date. One that is more epic, strange, and unique than anything CAINA has released before. “Hands That Pluck”, while being the most different, progressive, and idiosyncratic CAINA album to date, is also the most aggressive and visceral CAINA album to date likewise. This harnessed by the three other key vocal appearances on “Hands That Pluck”, namely vocalists Lord Imperial from U.S. cult black metal band KRIEG, Rennie Resmini who is the vocalist of cult U.S. hardcore band STARKWEATHER, and Chris Ross of BLOOD REVOLT/REVENGE/AXIS OF ADVANCE fame, all playing their role in helping make “Hands That Pluck” one of the triumphs in the CAINA repertoire.

“Hands That Pluck” comes with a bonus CD, an EP entitled “Old Songs, New Chords” which re-interprets four CAINA classics (along with a NICO cover) vs. their re-mastered original versions.

 

 

ATMA

Band:YOB
Album:ATMA
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

When YOB announced their comeback in 2008, the timing for them couldn’t have been more fitting since doom metal was on the rise and YOB’s status within the doom metal scene had already reached legendary levels. So when 2009’s “The Great Cessation” was released the demand for America’s top doom metal band was more than ever and in turn, “The Great Cessation” was acclaimed worldwide as pretty much the best doom metal album to be released in 2009 and the demand for YOB would continue to grow, culminating in The New York Times claiming YOB as one of the best bands in America today.

With their latest release, entitled “ATMA”, YOB have created their most dynamic, varied, and progressive album to date. While still following in the tradition and pattern of their previous releases by manifesting long, epic, and extremely heavy and crushing doom metal monuments unparalleled, “ATMA” (which features a guest appearance by Scott Kelly of NEUROSIS) sees YOB (led by doom metal master Mike Scheidt) explore new musical ground while at the same time, on a lyrical and thematic level, explore new spiritual ground too as “ATMA” serves itself as the most personal YOB album to date. Where the darkness of “The Great Cessation” crawled it’s way through with a vengeance, “ATMA’s” more uplifting and dynamic aura serves as the aftermath of “The Great Cessation” as a new triumph, victory, and milestone for the band.
