Similar effect like before. When the album is over it’s like realizing not having taken a deep breath since it has started. It’s like opressing bodily functions. Heavy. Drone metal opera.
Jambinai – ONDA
Korean post-rock played with traditional instruments and musical elements. This ablum is breathtaking. The “totally didn’t see this coming” winner of the month. The kind of experience that is hard to imagine without listening to it and feeling the goosebumps all over me.
VNDL – Gahrena: Structures
Part intimate, part exploration. Ambient and glitches and noises.
KTL, a duo of Peter Rehberg (Mego) and Stephen O’Malley (Sunn O))) ) played almost an hour of massive drone noise in the sophisticated auditorium of Sónar Barcelona 2015. It was rather relaxing although not a breakthrough experience.
Merzbow + Xiu Xiu – MERZXIU
Full-on noise, not really rhythmic, rather harsh but calm. Sets my piece of mind right now.
