Reshitivist Interview

lundi 12 février 2018 à 03:52
1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the musical project?
Reshitivist is a one man blackened death metal project from Melbourne, Australia with dark music and lyrics that display a misanthropic and depressive attitude. Reshitivist is currently made up of multi instrumentalist and audio engineer "Bage".

2.How would you describe your musical sound?
A dark, drum and guitar driven, cold and heavy progression between various sub genres of death metal with a symphonic twist in some areas.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects you explore with your music?
Depresion, anarchy, transcendence, misanthropy, philosophy, why the fuck are others the ways they are?

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Reshitivisit'?
Reshitivist came from the TV show Trailer Park Boys. The word recidivist means one who offends and breaks the law constantly and often. My first project is called "Law Breaker", so I thought it was appropriate to follow up on that with Recidivist; but then out of the sake of tribute to TPB I called it Reshitivist. It's like recidivist but shittier ;)

5.With this project you record everything by yourself, are you open to working with other musicians or do you prefer to remain solo?
I'm in a number of bands with musicians of varying skill and background. I prefer making music myself.

6.You reside in both Australia and Siberia, what affect does this have on the musical style you play?
When in Siberia I play a lot of guitar and no drums. My music tends to sound happier in Siberia than when I'm home in Australia. Believe it or not, the winters in Australia feel colder and lonelier than in Siberia and I think that feeling of solitude cuts through my music a little more.

7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of black and death metal?
Pretty poor actually! I've had a few people from various parts of Europe who really like it and share it actively, but Australian's don't seem to get into it as much as I expected them too.

8.Are you involved with any other musical projects or bands or have been in the past?
In chronological order:
Trophyknife
Bear Witness
Caged Grave
Overpower
Bombs are Falling
Limnal
Phantom Panda Power Wizard Master Smasher

9.Where do you see yourself heading into as a musician in the future?
Not far from the comfort of my home studio, or wherever I want to go

10.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?
Viking Crown
Slaughter to Prevail
Pantera (all time fav)
He is Legend
Black Sabbath
Silencer

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Gardening, law and legal research, audio engineering, cooking, learning, cannabis and DMT.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Thanks for the interview and fight the power!

Orga/Demo/Caligari Records/2018 Cassette Review

samedi 10 février 2018 à 22:01

  Orga  are  a  band  from  Indiana  that  plays  a  mixture  of  raw  black  metal  and  hardcore  punk  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  demo  which  was  released  on  Caligari  Records.

  Avant  garde  sounds  start  off  the  demo  before  going  into  a  heavier  direction  along  with  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  bringing  in  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  which  also  gives  the  music  a  more  raw  feeling  while  the  vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams.

  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  the  music  has  a  lot  of  90's  influences  which  they  mix  in  with  elements  of  hardcore  punk  along  with  the  riffs  also  bringing  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  and  some  of  the  songs  also bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  music  always  remains  very  raw  and  heavy  and  melodic  guitar  leads  can  also  be  heard  briefly  as  well  as  the  demo  closing  with  spoken  word  parts.

  Orga  plays  a  musical  style  that  takes  raw  black  metal and  hardcore  punk  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own,  the  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  and  nihilistic  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Orga  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  mixture  of  black  metal  and  hardcore  punk  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Ritual  Wisdom"  and  "Raised  In  Hell".  8  out  of  10.

samedi 10 février 2018 à 06:30


  Alberta,  Canada's  Rites  Of  Thy  Degringolade  have  returned  with  a  new  recording  which  continues  their  mixture  of  black,  war  and  death  metal  as w ell  as  getting  more  progressive  and  dissonant  this  time  around  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2018  album  "The  Blade  Philosophical"  which  will  be  released  in  March  by  Nuclear  War  Now!  Productions.

  A  very  dark  yet  melodic  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  heavy  riffing  and  spoken  vocals  a  few  seconds  later  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  utilize  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  tremolo  picking  which  also  gives  the  songs  a  more  raw  feeling  along  with  some  grim  black  metal screams.

  A  great  amount  of  death  metal  elements  can  also  be  heard  in  the  music  while  the  fast  sections  of  the  songs  are  very  heavily  rooted  in  war  metal  along  with  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced and  fast  parts,  synths  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  the  solos  and  leads  bring  in  more  of  a  technical  and  old  school  style.

  Throughout  the  recording  a  great  amount  of  dissonant  structures  can  also  be  heard  in  the  guitar  riffing  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  along  with  a  great  portion  of  the  tracks  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  growls  and  on  the  closing  track  a  brief  use  of  melodic  vocals  can  also  be  heard.

  On  this  recording  Rites  Of  Thy  Degrinogolade  expands  on  their  mixture  of  black,  war  and  death  metal  by  adding  in  more  technical,  progressive  and  dissonant  structures,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  death,  occultism  and  philosophical  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Rites  Of  Thy  Degrinogolade  and  if  you  are a   fan  of  war  and  dissonant  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Blade  Philosophical"  and  "The  Final  Laceration".  8/2  out  of  10.
