For These About Squawk: Waldo Pecks on Thantifaxath and Graveworm


What’s up? It’s your previous boy Waldo right here to tell you about some new and upcoming releases — good, dangerous or in any other case. Bear in mind, I’m not an elitist, you simply have horrible style.

Canada’s Thantifaxath is releasing Hive Thoughts Narcosis on Darkish Descent. This isn’t your common black steel document. There are elements of black, doom, thrash, demise or psychedelia. First impressions (apart from the cavernous drums) are the “trucker microphone vocals.” Equally disgusting and considerably intelligible, the voice right here is solely sick. The guitars are very prevalent within the combine giving this an aggressive sound. I do know, I do know, what concerning the music? The press launch precisely describes this as such. “From its very first observe, there’s a feeling of transcendence past style… past its scene and friends. Beforehand dubbed avant-garde black steel, Thantifaxath surpasses such mundane press tags, as a substitute conjuring forth an expansive, discordant and mind-altering brew.” It is a strong steel document, and the press launch is true, this isn’t a typical black steel document. 9 Fucking Pecks. Additionally, Decibel has unique gold copies of this on vinyl. That is restricted—solely 13 left—so get them fast.

Graveworm is releasing Killing Innocence. My first impressions right here should not nice. Although it is a tremendous powerful sounding title, the band itself is fairly wimpy. Keyboard intros, melodic guitars, growled vocals… sound like one thing you’ve heard earlier than? The luxurious, thick manufacturing right here provides it just a little depth, however don’t let that idiot you. Although a number of the songs are written effectively, the entire thing comes throughout as middling. There may be nothing that actually stands proud of this document that will separate it from a ton of different higher European melodeath bands. Apparently, that is speculated to be their comeback document, but it surely simply falls flat to me. Evaluations of this are fairly optimistic, however I 100% disagree… That is boring, so boring it sucks, or so uninspired that it sucks. Both manner the top result’s… it sucks. Not into it. 2 Fucking Pecks.


Waldo Out!
