The band is called The Love Club. Their Full Length is out. it’s a mix of garage rock, blues rock, country rock and even a bit of shoegaze.
Feedback Ritual is uncompromisingly experimental. Recorded live in the studio, with no overdubs or rehearsal, using only field recordings, a Les Paul electric guitar, a Hiwatt amplifier, a Cry Baby wah-wah pedal and a Big Muff fuzzbox, the album is a ritual psychic cleansing by means of extreme noise.The solemnities proceed in three stages. The first, Psychic Purification at the Amplifier Altar, is a lengthy meditation employing screaming, thunderous feedback to create an acerbic, corrosive wall of sound that swallows thought whole, bleaching and burning the mind to a pristine blank. The second, Strange Lights in the Sky, is a softer and more soothing interlude, with gently falling rain and ringing, lustrous feedback that resounds with all the purity of a Tibetan bell. Electrical Storm brings the ceremony to a close in a long, drawn-out explosion, in which the first track’s rocket-engine roar is brought to still wilder intensities as it is married with the sound of a massive thunderstorm.An unarguable trance, Feedback Ritual brooks no interference and seeks no permission, effortlessly overwhelming consciousness in an earth-rending avalanche of primal, raw, life-affirming sound.
Alone in the heat of the night – with no entertainment other than a 5-string bass guitar, a 4-track digital recorder, beat production software, and an old keyboard leaning against the wall – Schmoog climbed out of the heavy sludge, waved his way through the thick smoke, and ripped the bong once more. He knocked back a shot of gin, then declared, “that was smooth,” as he exhaled the toke.
“These guys play in a way that sounds like apocalyptic slaughter and survivor, combine bands like White Mice and Kowloon Walled City and you feel like you want to pull out your flesh and feed it to yourself. In truth, it’s that kind of metal that makes it feel like you’re in a world of oblivion, where instruments are tuned down significantly and the feedback is just murderous as it is heavenly.”
Here’s a new comer to the scene. The band is Moon Curse from Milwaukee. Their self titled is a doozy. It’s awesome grooved out doom metal.
Here’s another new one. The band is Hogg. They play dirty gruffy stoner rock in the same vain as Clutch, Crowbar, etc.
