28 March 2010

01. ...W Jesieni
02. Fall Vol.1
03. Duch We Mnie Umiera
04. Glare Of Autumn [Drudkh cover]

Samozatracenie is Fall's first EP, after only a demo, and on first look it's pretty interesting. Ok cover art, Temple Of Torturous release, Drudkh-cover… Come to think of it, this might very well be the first time I've ever seen Drudkh covered. Not that that is surprising, since it's probably very hard to do their songs justice…

I gotta admit, I skipped straight to that song. And you know what, their version isn't bad at all. It's a little heavy on synths, but in general, pretty good. The rest of the album is much the same, although a little less 'jumpy'. Samozatracenie is best-described as a long stream of rather pleasant sounding distortion. It's warm, it's a bit brooding and it flows along nicely. A short interlude here, there, a couple of hoarse, almost spoken-word-esque vocals and a good feel for dynamics.

However, none of the riffs (except for the opening solo of the second track) are of such quality that I'd like to hear them on a real Drudkh record. I don't mean that as harsh as it probably sounds. Fall is still very much a good band, and Samozatracenie is still very much a good EP. And because they present a few un-Drudkh-like elements, albeit sparsely, they're still worth hearing. Examples are the depressive Black metal-esque shrieks and the spoken word parts. Let's see what they're going to do next.

That's definitely something worth checking, particularly the Drudkh cover. I'm always open for new experiences I like the review short but informative.
