With the bounds of this thematic approach there is a variety of noise to be enjoyed. Machine-like rhythms, radio interference, even voices layered into the sounds, give this CD the same quality of sonic craftsmanship we’re used to from Shinjuku Thief.
Be That Charge is definitely an interesting music experience that will not be for everyone. Earthmonkey’s music covers so many styles that only the most open-minded individuals will like this. Without a doubt, the music is largely based on psychedelic influences and all that that entails.
Time for the first non-static change. Track 3, which starts off with the sounds of Glass smashing, and being shaken about, and picked up, by what sounds like someone with way too many Keys in their pockets. The track is a lesson in Experimental sounds, as it's really devoid of music, and just relies on samples to echo its point across. The first real indication of what Rob Hart can offer that no one else does.
EaVil claim that the visual elements are no less important than the audio aspects and they present what they call a ‘multimedia’ live show, unusual in a genre given to the most lacklustre live performances! It is not beyond the realm of possibility that in the live setting, together with multimedia aspects and the atmosphere generated by a live show, this music, as simple and repetitive as it is, may actually work and work damn well.
Ebola are now a three piece, and it seems that they've gone through at least 5 members in the past. Members and past members all seem to hail from black metal or thrash metal backgrounds, only coming together under the death metal banner for this band.
Ominous drones, buried deep in the mix, portray a subtle trance like induction. I prefer "Sleep Paralysis" to "Lucid Dreaming". Unfortunately, there just isn't enough originality to really make this EP a stand out release.
