Feeling Worthless/A Place Full Of Banalities/Entocomphobic Records/2020 Single Review

vendredi 3 juillet 2020 à 00:11

  This  is  a  review  of  another  single  from  Feeling  Worthless  which  is  also  in  the  depressive  black  metal  style  and  the  song  was  released  in  2020  by  Entocomophobic  Records  and  called  "A  Place  Full  Of  Banalities".

  Drum  beats  start  off  the  song  along  with  some  heavy  riffing  a  few  seconds  later  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  depressive  black  metal  screams.  All  of  the  riffing  is  done  on  power  chords  and  the  song  also  sticks  to  a  slower  musical  direction.

  On  this  track  Feeling  Worthless  plays  a  style  of  depressive  black  metal  that  is  very  slow  and  power  chord  driven.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  depressive  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  track  from  Feeling  Worthless  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  depressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  single.  8  out  of  10.

Feeling Worthless/Jornadas de Automutilacion/Entocomophobic Records/2020 EP Review

jeudi 2 juillet 2020 à 23:45

  This  is  a  review  of  another  recording  from  Mexico's  Feeling  Worthless  which  is  also  in  the  depressive  style  of  black  metal  and  the  ep  was  released  in  2020  and  called  "Jornadas  de Automutilacion"  which  was  released  by  Entocomophobic  Records.

A  very  dark,  distorted  and  heavy  sound  starts  off  the  ep  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  depressive  black  metal  screams.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  along  with  the  riffs  also  adding  in  a  small  amount  of  melody,  most  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  short  in  length  and  the  music  sticks  mostly  to  either  a  slow  or  mic  tempo  direction.

  On  this  recording  Feeling  Worthless  adds  in  a  little  bit  more  melody  and  mid  tempo  sections  than  the  previous  reviewed  single.  The  production  sounds  very  dark,  raw  and  lo-fi  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Spanish  and  cover  depressive  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Feeling  Worthless  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  depressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  ''Losas  Verdes"  and  "Desciendo,  Corto  y  Muero".  8  out  of  10

Petricor Interview

jeudi 2 juillet 2020 à 08:46
1. For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?

Petricor was born in 2017 with the idea of wanting to channel the feeling and creativity that surrounds me by being surrounded by the forests and nature of my country, Chile, always focused on the darkness, cold and solitude of nature.

2. Recently you have released a full length, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical style that you went for on the recording?

I always had in my mind to make metal music, it is what I was born to do, as well as the music that I always listen to, but I was very expectant for the sound that it could achieve, but that is something that is achieved from the heart, music is the reflection of your feelings, since it is an artistic creation, and that process is always something very personal, very natural and sincere. If someone wanted to make art, without you liking it or without wanting to say something, it would simply be a fraud or a lie.

3. All the music was also instrumental; are you open to working with vocals on future releases?

Unfortunately, I don't have a good voice to sing. But I do plan to incorporate some female voices in the future with the help of a friend of mine. Also, other instruments, but always in digital form, is the problem of working only on this.

4. What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name “Petricor”?

PETRICOR is the name given to the smell produced by the first rain when falling on dry soils, which is popularly known as "wet land" or simply "rain smell". With this name I try to define the feeling that I want to evoke with my music, that people remember that feeling and complement it when listening to my music, the rain, the cold, the humidity, I think that it is something closely linked to nature and that it always produces something in us, be it a memory, or a feeling of well-being.

5. Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the new album cover?

My entire project is characterized by El Ermitaño, a being who represents the spirit of forests and nature. It is my way of wanting to physically represent this energy and vibrations that are experienced when one connects with a natural environment. The album art shows El Ermitaño on a large log in the middle of a forest, it is as if he had materialized during his environment, empowered and powerful. The title of the album is "Australis" which in Latin means "from the South", which is from where I come from, the South of my country has a great natural reserve of forests and natural parks that are truly wonderful, so, to be my first album, I wanted to pay tribute to my land and nature.

6. You recorded most of the music by yourself but had a little bit of a collaboration on other instruments, can you tell us a little bit more about it?

Yes, as you say, all the music was recorded in my small home studio, all the composition and arrangements are my work, but the bass is not my instrument, so I had to ask the collaboration of an old friend to contribute with his ideas and melodic lines, I think he did a great job about it!

7. Currently you are unsigned, are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

Yes, I am currently looking for a label interested in publishing my music in physical format, be it cassette and CD, I do not care, although now everything is much better in digital format, I think that having a work in physical format is always much better, since it connects the listener with the art that one prints in each work.

8. On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black metal?

Well, you know that this is sometimes very closed and strict, but even so the reception has been positive, which makes me happy, but to be honest, I do not expect the approval of anyone, who likes to hear it, and Anyone who does not go their way is fine with me. I am always open to receive criticism that will make me grow and improve, everything is welcome.

9. Are you also involved with any other bands or musical projects?

No, the truth is that no, although at some point I was in a band, I definitely like working alone more, although that is not without setbacks, because it is always good to hear other opinions and ideas that can enrich your work, but at being alone and without pressure, it is much better over time.

10. Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician during the future?

I just hope I can continue channeling my creativity through music and learning and doing better and more things, that is my contribution to art and culture.

11. What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

I am a big fan of old Black Metal, from the early 90's, although I still follow my favorite bands, such as Darkthrone, Emperor, Burzum, Immortal, Satyricon, Bathory and a long etc, I always use their first albums, even if I have the complete discography of all these bands, I think that the old and what forged us always prevails over time. And I cannot stop saying that the album "Covenant - Nexus Polaris", is a true gem and masterpiece of metal.

12. Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

My message, although it may sound a bit hackneyed, is that we take care of and love this planet and its natural riches, let's occupy them just enough to live with it and recycle all our garbage, it is the only way to return the favor to this land that shelters us . And let us not let the big corporations take away what belongs to us, our water, our land, and our air. Thanks for the interview and your space.

Chorizo Con Papa/Rehearsal 16-03-20 (Bootleg)/Entocomophobic Records/2020 EP Review

jeudi 2 juillet 2020 à 08:04

  Chorizo  Con  Papa  are  a  band  from  Mexico  that  plays  a  musical  style  they  describe  as  being  'black  kitsch  abstract  metal'  and  this  is  a  review  of  a  rehearsal  they  recorded  in  2020  and  was  released  by  Entocomophobic  Records.

  Drum  beats  and  heavy  riffing  starts  off  the  rehearsal  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  depressive  black  metal  screams.  The  music  also  adds  in  influences  from  other  metal  genres  along  with  all  of  their  tracks  being  very  short  in  length  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  clean  vocals  and  all  of  the  music  sticks  to  either  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  style.

  Chorizo  Con  Papa  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  depressive  and  abstract  sounding.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Spanish  and  cover  depressive  themes.

   In  my  opinion  Chorizo  Con  Papa  are  a  very  great  sounding  black  kitsch  abstract  metal  band  and  if  you  are  looking  for  something  original,  you  should  check  out  this  rehearsal.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Itzel's  Death"  and  "Te  Voy  a  Chpar  el  Burro".  8  out  of  10.
