The Danish heavy-metal SEA will be releasing the LP The Grip Of Time on the 12th of May.
The classic sounds of faded leather, pin badges and denim tops soar in to the room as SEA take a tried and tested formula and deliver in Once We Were Dead, from the forthcoming album, four and a bit minutes of music with which to headbang.
Tongues of Fire from the USA is a new-wave trio who released their début single Sea on the 24th.
Tongues of Fire
Formed earlier this year – Sea (available on bandcamp) is their first foray into a fully formed release. Though there are snippets of thoughts they have made available for those of us not locally based in North Carolina since January.
Lasting just under three minutes Tongues of Fire spear angularities of lo-fi rim sheering distortion and feedback which coils out of the speakers like a Spitting Cobra espying a Vole running across the scrub and the trio launch the venom across the room in a singular sound which bites into the soul.
I am intrigued to discover more of Lowell Hobbs (Guitar / Vocals), Chandler Bell (Bass / Vocals) and Jakeb Reel (Drums) whilst anticipating they will feature for a while to come.
