Idylls/Palisades/2012 Split Album Review

  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  album  between Australia's  Idylls  and  New  Jersey's  Palisades  which was  self  released  in  2012  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  Idylls  a  band  that  has recently  had  some  of  their  music  reviewed  in  this  zine  and  play  a  progressive  mixture  of  noise,  punk,  post  hardcore  and  grind.

  The  music  on  their  side  of  the  recording  starts  out  for  fast,  heavy  and  progressive  along  with  some  high  pitched  screams,  brutal  guitar  riffs,  blast  beats  and  heavy  guitar  riffs  and  then  the  music  starts  to  slow  down  and  go  into  a  more  progressive  direction.

  When  we  get  into  song  2  harsh  noise  elements  are  added  into  the  music  along  with  some  guitar  leads  and  the  recording  starts  going  for  more  of  an  improv  direction  and  a  few  minutes  later  spoken  word  parts  are  added  into  the  music  and  the  music  remains  in  a  heavy  and  noisy  direction   and  once  their  last  song  comes  on  they  return  back  to  their  fast  riffs.

  Song  lyrics  cover  hateful  and  everyday  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  strong,  powerful, heavy  and  professional  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  their  side  of  the  recording  as  well  as  one  of  the  songs  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Idylls  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  noise,  grind  and  hardcore,  you  should  check  out  their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  "Born  Anxious"  and  "A  Wonderful  Summer".

  Next  up  is  Palisades  a  band  that  plays  a  heavy  form  of  post  hardcore.

  Their  side of  the  split  starts  off  with  some aggressive  screams  and  melodic  guitar  riffs  and  after  awhile  they  go  into  a  cleaner  direction  with  a  mixture  of  acoustic  and  heavy  guitars  before  adding  in  some  annoying  emo  vocals.

  And  as  their  side  of  the  split  continues  it  stays  in  the  same  direction  and  it  remains  boring

 I  would  have  to  say  this  band  doe s not  play  a  musical  style  that  I  am  into  and  I  am  not  the  right  person  to  judge  this  musical  genre.

  Song  lyrics  cover  depressive  and everyday  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound,  it  is  very  well  produced  but  I  just  cant  get  into  their  music  it  is  just  not  my  cup  of  tea.

  In  my  opinion  Idylls  are  a  very  boring  sounding  hardcore  band  and  I  cannot  recommend  them  to  anyone,  since  this  is  not  a  musical  style  that  I  enjoy.

  In  my  opinion  this  ep  is  only  worth  buying  for  Idylls  music,  and  I  would  only  buy  it  for  their  songs,  so overall  I  would  give  this  ep  only  a  half  recommendation.

Idylls/Farewell All Joy/2012 Full Length Review

2.How would you describe the musical sound of the new album?
-We did'nt want a modern sound like others productions in the same kind of music and one of our expectation was a really loud bass's sound and i think we did it.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the new release explores?
-I have a facination for the destroying side of the human being, so many of the album's songs talk about war and self destruction, why we spend so much money to kill each other, it's hilarious.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Morse?
-"Morse" means "Walrus", the band was named like this before i come in and i think it's just because it's a fat and disgusting animal just like our music.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
-It's a difficult question, we have played many good shows with awesome crowd but for me the best was our performance in the YELL FEST #1 a little festival in the middle of fucking nowhere it was so intense and chaotic, it was a really particular night for me but  the best is yet to come ;).
Our stage performance is, i think, really intense, every show is like the last.
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
-Yep, some shows in France for january, march and a tour in april-may in France and Europe. 

7.The new album came out on heads Records, how did you get in contact with this label and how would you describe the support they have given you so far?
-Head-records is our bassist's label and it's our first album so we did'nt want to lose time in a label research so Abel (bassist) says : "Fuck! We do that on head-records" and this motherfucker is a fucking pro so it was really cool to see all the stages creation of a record with him.     

8.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
-We have on "Beliefs destroyer" three songs pretty heavy of the rest of the album  : "Made by monsters, Last resort and Kadahar" and i think these three songs should be the new orientation of their future songs.

10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
-Our guitarist (Mathieu) is a huge fan of doom, sludge, stoner music it's one of our influence, the drummer (Kevin) like jazz music and some hardcore bands too and Abel(bass) and i (Jean-Marc, singer) listen a lot of grind, hardcore, noise... take a fucking grinder and here it is... MORSE.
During the interview i'm listening "The Commodores-machine gun" HA HA one of the most funky album on earth! I see you smilling ! Stop it please.     

11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
-Abel (Bass) and Kevin (Drums) choose music as way of life, Label and shows organisation for Abel and drums drums drums for Kevin, in different bands and he's also in a music school as student. Mathieu is infographist or something like that (haha) And... i hate talking about me.     

12.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
-Yeah thanks for your interest in Morse man, We hope one day play in USA. Take care

Stuntman Interview Questions

1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?

We are playing music together since 2002. When we formed the band we wanted to make violent and tortured hardcore, play gigs and record songs. That’s what we’ve done.

2.How would you describe your musical sound?

Today our sound is powerful, noisy and aggressive.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

Subjects explored are feelings of hate and rage. Human relationships and death.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name Stuntman?

Risk of death and rumors of fall. We liked the metaphor and how the word sounds.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?

The best shows that we have played together were and will always be when the audience and our friends share and enjoy what we're providing on stage. What we love is this communion. We can’t do a hierarchy.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new release?

We will play in Montpellier (France) for the release party (18th January 2014). We will tour from the 1st to 15th of March in Europe and play some gigs on weekends until end of May.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of hardcore and grind?

We have a lot of satisfaction with the band. On tour we met a lot of people who became friends. Nevertheless thanks to the Web we're having very good feedbacks worldwide on our latest material. However we’re still very confidential.

8.Are there any other musical projects besides this band?

A lot, we're involved in other bands (Pal, Plebeian Grandstand, Feral, Reverend Knockers), owning a label Prototype Records and promoting a festival called the Yell Fest.

9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?

It’s difficult to answer but we will continue to do our best in the same direction!! No compromise.

10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

A lot of bands influenced our music but we can say that metal hardcore bands from the 90’s are the most important spring of inspiration. Nowadays we still listen to these bands but also more modern ones like Nails, Ulcerate or Deathspell Omega for example. We listen to almost everything but our tastes remain kind of elitist.
11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?

Each one of us is interested in different things. Family, friends, food, politics, philosophy, art, technology…life!

12.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview? 

Incorporate The Excess is the first record that makes us entirely happy in terms of production and sound but STUNTMAN is still a band you must experiment on stage.
THANK YOU very much.

  This  is  a  review  of  a  split  ep  between  Virginia's  Cannabis  Corpse  and  California's  Ghoul  called  "Splatterhash"  which  was  released  by  Tankcrimes in  the  year  of  2014  and  we  will  start  off  the  review  with  Cannabis  Corpse  a  band  that  plays  a  marijuana  themes  form  of  death  metal  and  grindcore.

  "The  Inhalation  Plague"  which  is  also  the  first  song  on  their  side  of  the  ep  opens  up  with  heavy  guitar  riffs,  drums  and  deep  death  metal  growls  along  with  some  high  pitched  screams  and  after  awhile  you  can  also  hear  a  small  amount  of  melody  being  thrown  into  the  guitar  riffing  and  after  awhile  you  can  hear  the  bass  guitars  in  certain  sections  of  the  song  along  with  some  technical  elements.

  "Shatter  Their  Bongs"  begins  with  heavy  guitar  and  bass  riffs  along  with  some  drums  and  a  few  seconds  later  growls  make  their  way  into  the  song  along  with  a  small  amount  of  blast  beats  and  melody  which  also  leads  up  to  some  high  pitched  screams  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  guitar  leads.

  In  my  opinion  Cannabis  Corpse  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  old  school  death  metal  and grindcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out their  side  of  the  split.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "The  Inhalation  Plague".  RECOMMENDED.

  Next  up  is  Ghoul  a  band  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with  the  musical  style  being  splatter  thrash  death/grind.

  "Spill  Your  Guts"  begins  with  heavy  guitar  riffs  and  drums  before  adding  in  some  screams  and  growls  as  well  as  some  thrash  influences  in  the  guitar  riffing  and  you  can  also  hear  bass  guitars  and  melody  in  certain  parts  of  the  song.

  Song  lyrics  cover  splatter  and  gore  theme,  while  the  production  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  their  side  of  the  recording.

Bent Sea Interview

interview questions
answers by Dirk Verbeuren (drums, guitar) 

1. Can you give us an update on what is going on with the musical project these days?
Sure thing! We have a new split release coming out in December with a Swedish death/crust band called Usurpress. Our side is called “Animalist” and has eight new tracks which were completed over the past two years or so. It’s our second release with the current line-up of Sven, Shane and myself. My good friend Sylvain Coudret of Scarve and Soilwork contributed a guitar lead to the song “Fashion Victims” which is also the first promo track of the split. Selfmadegod Records is releasing the CD version and a 10” vinyl is due out on Doomentia Records, I’m guessing early next year.
2.How would you describe the musical sound of the newer material and also how does it differ from past releases?
“Animalist” combines punk and death metal riffing with a lot of blastbeats, d-beats and some darker and groovier sections. The songs are spontaneous and mostly short with opinionated and sometimes humorous lyrics. I’d call it grindcore. When comparing it to our debut EP “Noistalgia”, one difference is that I produced this new one myself. I spent a lot more time working on it. I think it sounds heavier and punchier. Every instrument can be clearly heard without losing the rawness of the performances. If you enjoy bands like Napalm Death, Terrorizer, Rotten Sound and Brutal Truth, you should like “Animalist”. But it’s rather hard for me to analyze it. I just know I enjoy listening to it.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the newer music explores?
“Double Standards” talks about injustice against women. In many countries, men get away with rape while their victims are accused of adultery and mutilated or stoned to death. “I Am Become Lust” addresses the sexual facet of man’s deep-rooted animalist nature. “Fashion Victims” is about the fur industry’s barbaric acts against innocent creatures. “At Any Cost” talks about eating meat. I tend to believe that a few hours spent at a factory farm would change most people’s food habits. The title track addresses how the human race is irreparably degrading the earth and, as a result, destroying itself. “Nature Of The Blast” and “Relentless” are more light-hearted, commenting on grindcore and credit card debt respectively. “See-Through” talks about how extremists, in this case religious ones, fail to make any kind of sense. 
4.The band members are all from different parts of the world, how did you get the recording process started?
I usually start with the drums, just playing and recording whatever I feel that day, usually with some sort of song structure or guitar idea in mind. Later, whenever I have some time, I write and record guitar tracks and rough bass tracks. It’s often a spontaneous process; I avoid over-thinking things when it comes to Bent Sea. Once I have a bunch of songs that sound decent to my ears, I send them to Sven and Shane. For “Animalist”, Shane actually came to my home studio to record. We also tracked bass for a couple of songs on the “Barge To Hell” cruise which Napalm Death, Brujeria, Lock Up and Soilwork were all playing. Sven recorded his vocals in The Netherlands while working on a new album with System Divide. 
5.Does the band ever plan on touring or is this strictly a studio project?
I’d love for Bent Sea to hit the road one day, but it’s not a priority as of right now. All I want is to record and release music whenever I feel inspired, without pressure. If and when things fall into place, and our busy schedules match up, I’ll be more than stoked to play some shows though. Hopefully by then we’ll have a few hundred songs to choose from! 
6.In the last few months you have put out splits with both Usurpress and Torture  Division, what are your thoughts on the other bands that have participated?
Usurpress kick major ass. I really enjoy their music and in my opinion, they contributed some of their best material yet to this split. I discovered them through their producer and ex-bass player Lawrence Mackrory, who also sings in my other band Scarve and who mastered “Animalist”. As for Torture Division, to me they’re the epitome of Swedish death metal. I love everything they’ve done and also the innovative way in which they release their music. They absolutely rule. If you don’t know these bands, you should definitely check them out! www.usurpress.comwww.torturedivision.net   

7.On a worldwide level, how has the feedback been to the newer music by fans of grindcore?
It’s a bit early to tell since the promos for “Animalist” have only just been sent out. But those who heard it really seemed to enjoy the split with Torture Division. Some grindcore purists might dislike the “all-star” nature of Bent Sea, but I don’t see the band that way. It’s my personal take on a style of music I grew up with and love. I just happen to play it with friends who are in estalished bands, which helps to spread the word, of course. But we don’t have any sort of master plan or intentions to get rich or anything like that. Bent Sea is 100% from the heart.
8.What is going on with the other bands these days that the band members are involved with?
I’ve been touring since March with Soilwork in support of our latest double album “The Living Infinite”. When I’m not on the road, I’m doing session work for various bands, teaching drums, recording for the Swedish music software company Toontrack and writing for a Dutch drum magazine called Slagwerkkrant. Sven has been touring with Aborted and will be opening for Soilwork in 2014 with System Divide, together with Darkane, Lawrence Mackrory’s other band. As for Shane, he’s been touring with Napalm Death and working on various other releases, like the Mutation album and new Brujeria and Venomous Concept records. And that’s probably just the tip of the iceberg. He beats us all when it comes to being in several bands, haha! As a matter of fact, Shane and I also play in a new project called Tronos with producer Russ Russell and contributions by Billy Gould (Faith No More), Troy Sanders (Mastodon) and Silke of The Gathering.
9.What direction do you see your music heading into on future releases?
I recently started working on a full-length and if I succeed, the result will have to be diverse. It will definitely still be grindcore but not the monotonous kind. My attention tends to wane very quickly when an album repeats the same tempos and riffs over and over. My goal for the first proper Bent Sea LP is to create something extremely intense and heavy, yet with enough different ideas for people to enjoy listening all the way through. I’ve been super busy but the ideas keep popping up in my head and I’ll continue writing and recording as soon as I can. 
10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Recently I’ve been listening to Portal, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, F.K.Ü., Autechre, Scorn, Brutal Truth, Public Enemy, Devin Townsend. It fluctuates between times when my head feels too saturated for music and others where I can’t stop devouring it. As for the music that influences Bent Sea, I’d say it’s the sum of all the stuff I listened to as a teenager: grindcore, death metal, thrash, black metal and bands like Godflesh, Cathedral and Endvra.
11.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
I love being around my wife, dog and cats. There’s no place like home. Besides music, I’ve been very interested in animals ever since I was a little kid. They’re absolutely fascinating to me. I can spend hours sitting in my yard watching birds and insects doing their thing while my dog is running around and hanging out. I also like good food, movies, video games, traveling and hanging out with friends. 
12.,Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
Thanks for supporting Bent Sea! Check us out at www.bentsea.com and follow me on Facebook for frequent updates: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dirk-Verbeuren/130681981708 Cheers!
