|2.||Oct 11, 2008:||Bloodstains Across Atherton - Sports by Schwartz Mix
((((1)))) Zig-zagging riffs, fast tempo with a slow, doomy breakdown that goes on a little long.
(((((2)))))) Cold, ‘stormy’ black/death ‘ala Dissection mixed with the “passionate” side of true emo (see Funeral Diner, Yahphet Kotto, etc). Good stuff.
(((((3))))) Battering drums, tremolo riffs galore, screamed out vocals and a lot of (bloody) heart. Great guitar sound and riffs.
(((4))) Confusing, jagged tempos that don’t work too well minus the good guitar tone.
(((((5))))) Blasting, raging Black/Death awesome-ness. Excellent 80’s metal solos. Sounds exhausting when it’s all done but that’s the joy of it all.
(((6))) More blasting but a with an epic vibe. Lumbers on to that so-so “mid-paced Black Metal” thing that’s more miss than hit.
(((((7))))) Hammering and bombastic with a nice bass sound underneath it all. Interesting albeit abstract lyrics attacking either religion or racism. Not sure but it make a good point either way.
((((8)))) Balancing the speed/aggression with the melodic parts with a lot of focus. Similar to Agalloch circa: “The Oak that Binds”
(((9)))) Acoustic strums and martial drumming, then fast tremolo riff worshipping BM, repetitive but still memorable and with more than a few interesting changes.
