Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster - Wires/Dream\Wires

Sometimes life is full of surprises.

About a month ago, after a long three and a half year run, I deleted Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster's Exegesis off my space-deprived iPhone to make way for albums to be reviewed. Not one week passes when out of the blue Tom emails me and asks if I want to review their newest album. Needless to say I jumped at the chance.

Wires/Dream\Wires see the band returning after three years off pretty much in stride with Exegesis.

TNBD play post metal and follow the basic blue print of the genre, which is to see quiet instrumental pieces which slowly build up to distortion pedal stomping crescendos. Hooray. Another band in a long line of post-it note acts.

Bands
Borgne

Hailing from Switzerland, and thus being the first group from outside of Québec signed on Sepulchral Productions, Borgne plays cold, mechanical and inhumane Industrial/Black Metal, as martial as it is hypnotic. Do not expect any lame techno beats here, only blistering Black Metal done in a more "synthetic" way, with a dense, suffocating sound and some dark ambient passages.

Tristana - Virtual Crime

First off, this is not Tristania, the beloved Norwegian gothic band. It's also not Tristana, the 1970 Luis Buñuel film. I know, that's what I thought, too. This is Tristana, the reportedly reputable Slovakian hard rock/alternative metal band. Not to start this off on the wrong foot or anything, but I suspect that your time would be better spent pursuing one of the former two.

Arion

Finland's newest melodic metal sensation Arion came out from the woodwork and dropped on the scene like a bomb. Comprised of a trio of 17 and 18 year old music students from Sibelius Lukio and their equally accomplished muso friends, Arion wrote their debut song "Lost" - a versatile piece of symphonic melodic metal - in the summer of 2012, entered it to the Eurovision song contest's Finnish qualification and found themselves in the nationally televised qualification rounds. Perplexed in the midst of the TV hoopla and everything therein, still trying to get to know each other as a band mates, Arion were already getting the first taste of celebrity treatment. After 3 televised performances, Arion's song sensationally wound up 5th among 540 songs and got nationwide applause and airplay.

Maruta - Remain Dystopian
