Shale track review - III

Shale's track "III" off of their eponymous debut is a slow burning and beautiful song. It sounds a little like Karate, Gastr Del Sol and American Analog Set. Pretty harmonics and violins accessorize this weighty tune, which swells and becomes fat with saturation at the end. Thunderous and brilliant drums blast out and settle with dual vocal melodies.
It is worth noting that this band features former members of Fugue and midi.
Beautiful album art to boot!

Coliseum bring their passionate post hardcore sound to New Haven

From their earliest recordings, up to their latest one, no one could have predicted the musical trajectory of Louisville's Coliseum. On early albums such as "Goddamage" and "No Salvation", they were more of a straight up crusty hardcore band, while they took a slight left turn with the spooky post-punk vibes of 2010's "House With A Curse". Soon followed, the "Parasites" EP, and in 2013 on their most recent record, "Sister Faith", released late last month, they have undergone yet another transformation, yet still retaining all of their power and passion.
