Album Review
Diego Aguilar-Canabal
Reviewed 2024-03-23
Heavy art-rock / dream-metal-gaze with ambient/noise shoe-polish-remover from Brooklyn, NY. Lead singer / baritone guitarist Brendan Landis (see Hey Exit) brings a studio drummer to bash out some heavy COVID-era bedroom rock bangers. Anthemic peaks still feel relatively hushed and personal, like walking in on At The Drive-In through a Nine Inch Nails phase while rehearsing to fill in for Krallice at a crunchy granola Portland black metal show.
All tracks FCC safe, you should even play this for your grandma

1. (2:55) screaming thrashing black metal with some robotic drum machine/robot vox parts
2. (7:12)******** triumphant post-rock / emo-metal with a catchy groove somehow wtf?!
3. (5:55) mellow crooner to start, Nadja-style drone-metal fuzz washes over tender harmonies
4. (6:46)* scraping sheet metal noise samples, falsetto cooing, harsh synth drone
5. (6:59)** chill drum machine shoegaze at first, leans into the Aphex Twin-ish glitchy stuff before building into a crashing metal riff toward the end
6. (5:10) synth drone, softly sung/spoken vocal loops
7. (4:29) brutally slow sludge/doom/black metal with harsh screaming, slow shredding guitar harmonies
8. (7:20)*** meditative ritual chanting and chimes/gongs, Tibetan monks in a cyberpunk dystopia
