High On Fire - Electric Messiah

I think they're one of the betterer and more respectable straight up metal bands going. You know what you're getting with them i.e.speeding diesel engine ft.gargling lunatic shouting stuff about olden times over it... but this sounds like another fine record.

Cave In ‘White Silence’


What you reckon to this? When they "came back" with the mixed up palette of sounds, it was never quite what it might have cracked up t've been, and a bit caught between the stools for me.


I actually enjoy it, especially when they manage to mix up the melodic and abrasive elements (‘Sings My Loves’ is immense). It wasn’t so surprising for me after the Planets of Old EP from two years prior. It just felt like all the splintering influences of the band members were thrown into one big melting pot.

I think it's a great album.

Agreed. I'll actually go ahead and be a bit wacky - I actually wonder how a band like Converge would sound if they had a vocalist like Stephen Brodsky. I know that's probably a bit too wacky, but I think they would be even greater. I sometimes feel like White Silence would be a good approximation of what that would sound like.

Axe to Fall may be that album, or at least the closest we have. It also happens to be my favourite Converge album.

I guess so. It's a minor complaint though.

Not super big on B.I.G., and I certainly don't miss the obsession of CD era of stuffing to the max run length, especially with hip hop/rap. And the 'sex' tracks...just so much cringe.

i like it when they hit their stride on those records, agreed "Sing My Loves" is magic and in principle it was all a very exciting prospect. That was the problem though, the mixes of elements sometimes went a bit unemulsified and in the end those reclrds had a diary or anthology feel to them. Legend band, had a proper affair between 98 and 02/3 with this lot. recent events pretty wank, tribute shows are for real sad as fuck..

Yeah, I can kind of agree on that, RE: anthology feel. Even Perfect Pitch Black had that kind of feel to it, even down to the run order (separating the more mellow second-half material from the more metallic first-half).

Even just listening to the stuff that both Brodsky and Scofield went on to do following that, you really didn't know what direction Cave In would go if they came back from hiatus (in fact, I kind of expected them to stay that way before Planets of Old surfaced.

Obviously from the debut through Jupiter to Antenna, and all the EPs released between there, they were certainly more focused. Whether or not signing to a major, with the pros and cons that come with that, knocked that focus out a bit is hard to tell. But it seems that way. And White Silence definitely sounded and felt like an album that was more a passion project than a product or logical career step. And sure enough, they were pretty much back into hibernation from there.

I can agree on that as well. However, I love the sheer creativity of that "scene": The whole original Hydra Head roster was pretty diverse and creative. Cave In were the embodiment of that and I can forgive the lack of cohesiveness on their later releases. In itself, White Silence does come across as two E.P.s, rather than one album.

Kid Koala 12 Bit Blues

Kid Koala basically deconstructs than reconstructs blues songs on an SP-1200 sampler, and it is surprising enjoyable in an inventive way.
