RIDE AT DAWN: Chrome Pillars: 7”

Sep 23, 2011

A not-pretty soundtrack is the output for this band’s debut from Toronto. A mixture of blackened crust and d-beat with some dirgy and sludgier elements coat the music like hot tar on a roof. Vocals yelled and screamed to the throat’s limits soar above the dirty thickness of the guitars. Drums seem to be up in the mix, giving the songs a thundering stampede effect. The bass sounded like its tuned low, which added thunder to the mix. I’m pretty impressed by this and will surely like to hear what is in the future for this new band.
