Black Volition – Rivers

Black Volition

A teaser trailer has been posted for Black Volition‘s video and single, “Rivers“.

The following was taken from their Facebook page.  It seems like such a perfect introduction for this newly formed project that I see no reason to poke my fingers into it.

We’ll bring you more on Black Volition at a later date.  For now, here’s a peek into their world:

Brand new music project by Reza Udhin, with Guitars by Will Crewdson

BLACK VOLITION

Take a trip through the Sleepy towns, Lonesome woods and Dark Cabaret of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks.. then transport yourself to the back streets and gloomy swamps of a Vampire ridden Louisiana in True Blood via a desert valley of Spaghetti Westerns. Combine these Worlds and you will reach the perfect soundtrack to this Melancholy Universe BLACK VOLITION.

BLACK VOLITION is the new musical project from Reza Udhin from Inertia / Killing Joke, together with Guitarist Will Crewdson from Rachel Stamp / Adam Ant / Flesh For Lulu.

Think Dirgy Blues, Dark Cabaret, Twisted Electronics, Dusty Jazz, Spaghetti Westerns and a sorrowful song and you are on track to creating the sound of BLACK VOLITION in your imagination.

Unida _26_6 @An Club, Athens

There is no doubt that stoner and sludge are the only metal subforms that can attract people outside the heavy metal barriers. That is well understood by Johnny Garcia, singer of the stoner legends Kyuss who has formed three side projects (Slo Burn, Unida, Hermano), has provided vocals for numerous bands and he is ready to release a personal debut with songs written throughout his 25-year singing career.

Unida is a band that released an one an only album “Coping with the Urban Coyote” back in 1999 and dissapeared in the middle of the 00’s mostly because of issues with the record industry that spawned a ghost album “The Great Divide” which can be found as a bootleg only. Nevertheless, the band is back together since 2012 and plays around the world. The Athens gig was Garcia’s personal wish as he mentioned somewhere in the middle of the show, since it was the fourth time in town. An club is not a huge venue but it was nearly packed for the sake of desert rock.

The band lavishly offered their bigger than life riffs by the hands of Arthur Seay who also plays the role of the frontman and the communicator. Their rhythm section stands on a professional level and Garcia’s voice is as fresh as it was two decades earlier. “Wet Pussycat” was the ideal intro, followed by the heavy and steady tunes of “Thorn“. The 10-minute jamming was something we could leave without, but they put things back in place very quickly, epecially with “Black Woman” for the encore that left nobody without moving a piece of their bodies.

No matter Idio,CA is so far away from Athens, Unida embody the whole desert attitude, and the audience happily enjoy.

DeathBlack Flowers – The Trail of Your Blood in the Snow

cover

The Trail of Your Blood in the Snow” is the title of the third release of indie band DeathBlack Flowers from Wichita, Kansas USA.

Christopher Flores, Eric Harrison and Todd Wooland released the mini albums “Killing the Divine Animal” and “V.V.V.V.V.” in 2013 giving us a first idea of their style. (Κeyboard player Jedediah Ghouled is their fourth on and off member who also has a track named after him on their latest 8 track album).

DeathBlack Flowers seem to be very active in the local Wichita scene, and they perform live almost every month.

Their sound is dreamy deeped-in-reverb effects with a very melancholic twist to it.

The album opens with the uplifting tempo of “You Among Dreams” and continues with the tribal beat and the distorted bass of the track “The Trance of Golden Eyes”, which, in a strange way, has a touch of U2 to it.

With “From Me to Your Blood”, the band lowers their pace. Things turn more gloomy as the guitar sound merges with the keyboard carrying the listener to a slow, hypnotic dance.

The “Invisible Ghost” takes up the pace again. This is dream pop.

The Flame, the Fall” sounds like the other side of the band. Yes, still in the same dreamy mood but with powerful guitars and a nightmarish atmosphere.

Serpent My Son” and “Long Mistaken Past” are flirting with post rock while the album closes with “The Song of Jedediah”.

Although DeathBlack Flowers are still a local band, I believe the time that their fame will cross the borders of Kansas is not far.
