Ghosts Again – The Closest Thing To Closure

Ghosts Again_RingMasterReview

Based out of North Carolina, Ghosts Again is a post hardcore trio releasing a new EP, The Closest Thing To Closure this month. Having missed their earlier efforts, the new five track encounter is the first time we have had to check out a band many are suggesting is loaded with promise. From a strong but initially underwhelming start, it is fair to say that The Closest Thing To Closure suggests that Ghosts Again is indeed a potential equipped band well worth paying attention to.

Rising from the ashes of its member’s previous projects, Close Up on the Quiet Ones and Messenger Down, Ghosts Again picked up highly positive attention in 2015 with the release of the single, Business as Usual. It and their sound lured understandable comparisons to bands like Underoath and The Amity Affliction, suggestions easy to see happening again with The Closest Thing To Closure EP, though what ultimately emerges is an imagination and boldness in song which suggests Ghosts Again are shaping something heading towards being distinctly theirs.

GA4(Art_RingMasterReviewThe EP opens with Skeleton Boy which quickly shows the vocal and melodic prowess of vocalist/guitarist Alex Cortright. As the darker hues of Brandon Washington’s bass unites with the swinging beats of drummer Arun Bose, a great blend of brooding and lighter sonic hooks ensnare ears as Cortright’s roars continue to flame and impress. There are elements which really grab attention but equally from sound and the raw side of the vocals things are a touch too formula; failing to ignite personal tastes beyond being contented and firmly intrigued.

Pant’s Division (The End is Silence) makes a similarly expected and appealing start with heftily swung beats within sonic smog of suggestiveness around the band’s vocal variety. As the first, the song is skilfully woven with each moment involved yet a fluid web of sound and emotion; not openly striking but potently persuasive. It is the emerging element of discord and in turn melodic elegance which lifts the song to another alluring level though. It brings greater drama to the temptation and a richer element of unpredictability which really grabs the spotlight in the following and outstanding Les Enfants Terribles. From the start, grooves wind their charms around ears, the imagination just as easily bitten by the web of melodic enterprise and vocal dexterity which blossoms as the song broadens its adventure. There is a touch of My Chemical Romance to the track at times which enjoyably lines the more volatile and metal bred dexterity as well as the thickly emotive calms within the persistently evolving song.

That new level of invention continues in Relive Revive; its emotional and sonic blaze colouring an equally fascinating tapestry of guitar craft and rhythmic theatre. As with all songs on the EP, there are plenty of textures and moments of creativity to recognise or certainly compare to other bands within the post hardcore scene but tinted with a freshness of thought and skill which stops it becoming too indistinct or dull.

Ending with the increasingly compelling Eleven, a song fusing symphonic hues in its boisterous and bracing tempest of heart and sound, The Closest Thing To Closure leaves a healthy, and growing with every listen, appetite to indulge in the highly enjoyable Ghosts Again challenge and reward proposal. It is a band showing that earlier mentioned potential at every turn of an EP which is not ground-breaking but offering plenty to please ears with vigour and style.

The Closest Thing To Closure EP is out now on iTunes.

V For Violence – The Book of V

VFORVIOLENCE-band_RingMaster Review

Finnish metallers V For Violence first made an attention nudging statement with up their debut album The Cult Of V in 2009, now after a fair time in the making they unleash its successor The Book of V. Vocalist Jarkko Lähderanta said of the band’s new offering, ”The Book Of V took years to get its shape and sound. We wanted to take the next step in songwriting and paid more attention on details.” It is an intent finding success as the eleven tracks contagion frisks ears and sparks the imagination, and though it easily lures references to other protagonists in the industrial/alternative metal scene and styles around it, the album is simply one rousing and thoroughly enjoyable ferocious stomp.

Formed in 2007 by Lähderanta, drummer Miikki Kunttu, and guitarist Janne Salo, V For Violence was soon luring ears with their first demo in 2008. Its track/video Boy Called Fucker was a swift spark in the band being eagerly devoured by fans and media too, helping lead to their signing with Osasto-A Records soon after for the release of the 2-track single Constant Of Death in the summer of 2009. It was a strong teaser to their impending debut album The Cult Of V released in the November of that same year. The full-length was a well-received proposal pushing the band towards stronger spotlights backed by a live presence which by this point had already seen V For Violence support Hardcore Superstar and in turn going on to the sharing of stages with the likes of Die So Fluid, Cold Cold Ground, Amorphis, Hypocrisy, Underoath, and Architects at shows and festivals. Now with bassist Jani Rahkonen and guitarist Riku Vuorio alongside Lähderanta, Salo, and Kunttu, V For Violence have the long awaited The Book of V poised and ready to stir up the metal scene.

And that it pretty much does even if its originality is locked in the arms of open familiarity to a few heavyweights. Like a fusion of Fear Factory and Marilyn Manson in league with Dope and Powerman 5000, the album and opening track, The Halted Saint explode on the senses with anthemic ferocity. For some you suspect that recognisable air might not work as well as for others, but V For Violence bring their own raw and aggressive twist on things too ensuring that each track has something fresh and extra to say and certainly grip a demanding appetite and imagination by. The band’s new single clouds ears with thick industrial smog but swiftly sends sinewy tendrils of guitar and scything rhythms through it as the climate begins to clear on a corrosive and quickly addictive stalking. Those previously mentioned references straight away work on thoughts as too Society 1 in regard to the caustic and impassioned, bordering on sexual, intensity driving the encounter. Grooves and hooks just spark whilst the strong vocals of Lähderanta roar with expression and incitement for an outstanding start to the album’s fury.

V-For-Violence-TheBookOfV-cover__RingMaster Review     The potent beginning continues with the predatory prowl of The Downfall Pt. I: To Feel Alive. Initially it smoulders within imposing walls with mellow melodies and vocal coaxing but is soon building a volatile atmosphere and intimidating lining of textures, though still dipping into its elegant reflective heart throughout. Once more Manson is an obvious comparison to a song which at times has you drooling and in other moments simply fascinated by its adventurous nature and spicing.

Never Enough uncages the darkest bestial bass riffs and salacious grooves next, splintering them with vocal bellows and psyche gripping hooks to get very greedy over whilst Like It Like That and I Need You spew inescapable virulence in their individual characters. As most songs, choruses conjured are like infection dosed traps, impossible not to be fully involved in whilst around them creative snarls and in the latter of this trio, sinisterly dramatic nuances toy with the imagination. It is fair to say that a few songs share a closely seeded template but many, as here, create from that something strikingly inventive and captivating.

Band and album continues to hit the spot as tracks like the carnivorous A Place To Fill with its electronic festivity and guitar led twists, and the wonderful sonic groan and intimate melodies of God On Trial just ignite the senses. The second of these two is another major pinnacle in the album, every minute a cauldron of emotion and flirtatiously venomous enterprise equipped with unpredictability before it has to make way for Sodomedia which rivals it with its own hellacious and irritable industrial grooving. Once more limbs and thick involvement in the tempest is unavoidable, the breath taken too in the exhausting pleasure consuming the senses

The following Not A Word with its more hard rock seeded swagger lacks the spark and triggers of its predecessors yet again has a keenly persuasive impact on ears and satisfaction whilst What The Fuck! throws its attitude out with zeal, rhythmic and vocal relish fuelling the Five Finger Death Punch/ American Head Charge spiced confrontation.

The Book of V closes with the sweltering croon of The Downfall Pt. II: Amourageddon, its initial acoustic and emotive smoulder again as in Part 1, rising to dense intensity and melancholic ire whilst this time embracing classical and symphonic hues alongside an evocative industrial climate. A relative slow burner compared to other tracks within the album, it constantly evolves and reveals new treats to bring the release to a fine conclusion.

Fair to say we greedily devoured The Book of V and continue to, each track a tasty slice of invigorating fire and hostility. If any of those previously mentioned comparisons do not work for you than possibly V For Violence will struggle to persuade too but for the rest, this is one easy to recommend incitement.

The Book of V is available now via Inverse Records.

Future Talk – The Path That Sadness Paved

FT_RingMaster Review

Managing to bring potent scents of styles like post hardcore/rock into their familiar yet undeniably fresh and captivating tapestry of alternative rock, UK band Future Talk uncage a powerful introduction to themselves with their The Path That Sadness Paved EP. Seriously engaging on first listen and increasingly compelling with every subsequent involvement in its four emotionally ripe songs, the release offers swift suggestion of a potentially impressive force in the making. The EP does not blaze with striking originality yet again there is the hint that the possibility is also in the breeding as it leaves ears and appetite thoroughly satisfied in the now.

Hailing from Gloucester and emerging in 2014 from the previous projects of its members, Future Talk has been earning a strong reputation for their live presence over the past year which in turn has inspired keen anticipation for their first release. References to bands such as Emarosa, Mallory Knox, and Underoath have been offered against the band’s sound, easy to understand suggestions when listening to The Path That Sadness Paved though in other ways Shattered Skies and Circle of Reason also occasionally nudge thoughts across the quartet of captivating songs.

Cover_RingMaster Review     The Path That Sadness Paved opens with new single/video Sleeping Pills, immediately covering ears in a wave of melodic enticement and sonic coaxing punctuated by firm handed rhythms. The rich tones of vocalist Alex Taylor make an equally potent impact on first impression, flourishing in the embrace of the song’s resourceful drama and imaginative enterprise whilst the track seems to only blossom further with his melodically honed impassioned roars. It is a fiercely magnetic start to the release, as suggested not a song breaking down boundaries but, as the EP, powerfully leaving ears and appetite hungry for more; a success in anyone’s book.

The following Shadow Poet builds from a gentler lure into a tempest of emotion sculpted by great individual craft across the band. The moody bassline nicely contrasts the more fiery elements of the song whilst the vocals add their own catchy nature to a web of jabbing beats, sparkling hooks, and a persistently eventful design in songwriting and sound. Over time, even outshining the excellent opener, the song tells you all you need to know about the invention, potential, and instinctive power of the band and their rousing music.

The Cliffs As A Reminder reveals another fluid and involved weave of guitar and key, it wrapping rolling rhythms in a tantalising blend which is only enhanced by the ever robustly flamed vocals and their lyrical and emotional theatre. Equipped with a dark almost cantankerous tone through the bass, the track ignites ears full pleasure before making way for the closing elegance and emotional croon of Fear Life. Without quite matching the heights of the first trio of songs, it alternately bellows and hauntingly smoulders with open craft and enthralling endeavour to still leave EP and ears on a notable high.

As mentioned Future Talk are not at a point where their distinct identity shines through their already impressing creativity and exciting sound but guitarists Jay McQuilkin and Jack Cadenhead, drummer Max Elderfield, bassist Mitch Potts, and Taylor seem on course to find that uniqueness at some point, whilst providing as here rather enjoyable times along the way.

The Path That Sadness Paved EP is available from August 24th digitally and on CD.

UK post-hardcorers ‘CONDUIT’ have just unleashed new video single for the ‘Others’

Conduit Shot Online Promo_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

Born in the West Midlands in 2009, Conduit are comprised of Dave Boyle working on bass & guitar, Ian Harris dishing out the riffs, Steve Hodge providing rhythm guitar and Dave Roberts hammering at the drums. Far from possessing the typical CVs you’d associate with many of today’s up-and-coming melodic hardcorers, two of the band members helped create a floor that appeared in a James Bond film, another volunteered for work in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and their lead singer used to spend his days working in a giant freezer. There is certainly something oft-kilter about Conduit, and it makes the ascending quartet even more intriguing.

The four-piece have a strong bond and friendship, and this solidarity seeps from their music. The Midlanders have a clear philosophy and have grafted diligently for the past seven years on shaping their sound and spreading their manifesto. With influences ranging from Underoath, Haste The Day and Rise Against, Conduit have fashioned a brand of post-hardcore that will batter its way through your skull, tug at your heartstrings, and genuinely make you think. The foursome maintain an earnest approach to song-writing united with meaningful lyrical content, rhythmic refrains, and thoughtful arrangements.

The band have also clocked up the mileage on the road, and after a successful run of shows throughout the UK supporting everyone from War Of Ages, As Cities Burn, Listener, Continents, Heights, Oh Sleeper, Hacktivist, Through Solace, Max Raptor and Fathoms, to name a few, the foursome squirreled away, bracing themselves for a lengthy stint in the recording studio. They soon began work on their debut album, ‘Life On Repeat’, and emerged from the studio in 2015 with an absolute gem of a record.

‘Life On Repeat’ showcases the band at their best, casting a brilliant light on their shrewd ability to fuse and unify genres, despatching intoxicating songs that contort and wrap themselves around your ears. The rising combo have also just released new single ‘Others’; the video single highlights the foursome’s guile and astute use of dynamics to dramatic effect. Stay tuned to the band’s Facebook for further updates and show announcements.

Conduit – Life On Repeat

Conduit Shot Online Promo_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

‘All things come to he who waits’ they say and certainly that is the case for fans of UK band Conduit as they release debut album Life On Repeat six years since emerging upon the melodic hardcore scene. Since stepping forth in 2009, the West Midlands quintet has encouraged a rich and loyal fan base alongside earning a rich reputation for their live presence. Now national attention is under potent persuasion through Life On Repeat, and from someone having their first introduction to Conduit through the album, it is a fine quest bound for success.

The Coventry band consists of vocalist/bassist Dave Boyle, lead guitarist Ian Harris, rhythms guitarist Steve Hodge, and drummer Dave Roberts, a foursome taking inspirations from the likes of Underoath, Haste The Day, and Rise Against into their thick mix of sound within a post/melodic hardcore template. Lyrically there is a seeding in the band’s faith which never imposes yet has clarity within the bustling sounds around them. As mentioned, live Conduit has earned their spurs and rich praise, the sharing of stages with bands such as War Of Ages, As Cities Burn, Listener, Continents, Heights, Oh Sleeper, Hacktivist, Through Solace, Max Raptor, and Fathoms acclaimed moments on their CV. There is open energy and dynamism to Life On Repeat which can only echo the band’s stage vivacity, and though for personal tastes the release ebbs and flows in its demands on ears and emotions, from start to finish Conduit offer a thoroughly magnetic proposition.

Eyes Wide Shut sets things rolling, a blaze of guitar amidst a sonic wind an immediate coaxing soon evolving into a vivacious tempest of sound and vocal intensity. Boyle offers a duel attack, at times his delivery a raw squalling enticement and in others a strong clean roar. Riffs and hooks align to keep ears under intensive encouragement and hostility too, whilst rhythms demand attention as they frame the creative turbulence within. It is a striking start to the album continued with equal success by Sovereign. A sonic jangle awakens ears first, its lure quickly joined by eager rolling rhythms, and in turn another web of vocals. A lot of attention is given to the vocals by the band, not to the detriment of anything else but to provide a varied and just as energetic offering as the music. It is an on-going side to the album which works a treat with the melodic tones of Boyle the scene stealer against his coarser incitements. As the opener, the track bellows and entices with invention and craft, even if it uses existing genre templates rather than crafts its own.

Conduit cover_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review    The lighter and warm infectiousness of The Road swiftly shows there is more to the songwriting and imagination of the band than vociferous intensity. An electro bubbling lies in the belly of the proposal, whilst the melodies cast spring emotion and warmth in song and ears. The harsh assaults of vocals are not as successful for personal tastes against the excellent clean delivery of Boyle and the flow of the encounter, but do not prevent ears and satisfaction being captivated before making way for the bands new single, Others. The song is a lively, emotive stroll of pop rock with dramatic shadows and a fiery enterprise leaving only satisfaction in its wake.

The reflective throaty melody bringing next up Pulled From The Water is a mouth-watering entrance backed up by leaner but no less enthralling lures of guitar and bass. The raw vocals again do not quite work with ears, at this point the realisation that the draw for us is definitely the cleaner side of Boyle’s vocal presence coming through, though once the song erupts within its balladry with a caustic climate the growling tones make a pleasing hue. The song smoulders for the main though, making stronger proposals with every listen as does Let Your Breath Become Your Sound, after the brief intro presence of Interlude leading into it. The song is a tempest of angst cured calm and volatile emotion drenched atmospheres, an unpredictable and gripping landscape of sound and creative tenacity.

Previous single Outstretched Arms makes a telling hook for the senses and appetite, its voracious flaming and contagious catchiness combining for an encounter which intimidates and seduces simultaneously. The prime groove and rhythms are addictive bait whilst melodies and vocals create anthemic potency even with agitated and unsettled emotion coating their every move. It is no surprise the song alone raised additional anticipation amongst newcomers to Conduit for the album, such its forceful but endearing tempest.

Endearing is a great description for the closing We Were Kings too, the song a masterful tapestry of all the key and potent essences of the Conduit songwriting and sound. Light and dark essences court each other’s strengths whilst aggression and warm radiance almost battle as they align within the outstanding end to the album. The best song on Life On Repeat brings it to an end and ensures the release is a lingering memory.

It is fair to say that the admittedly increasingly enjoyable Life On Repeat did not ignite a fire inside as often as we would have hoped but only down to personal wants than any real deficiencies found within what is a thoroughly enjoyable and appetite awakening release. We watch the next step of Conduit with keen interest, and if it is more of the same then there will still be few particularly disappointed.

Life On Repeat is available from June 1st through all stores.

Not Tonight Josephine – Self Titled EP

2-3

Released the same week as the new self-titled EP from Not Tonight Josephine, the debut release from UK band Death Kindly Waits For Me ignited a fresh breath in the post hardcore scene. It set down, even in its raw but potential drenched proposition, a new adventure for the genre which for us made a marker all other offerings would now have to match up against. The Florida hailing quintet are the unfortunate ones to step up next and within hours of that striking release, the first to have to impress new demands and hopes. It is fair to say that Not Tonight Josephine do a fine job, their six track encounter might not have that special ingredient we found so thrilling but it out crafts and out shines most other post hardcore proposals over recent months to leave thick pleasure in its wake.

The band has been working on the new release since mid-2014, creating songs to push their sound on again from its acclaimed successor, the Common Gold EP released the previous year. With a more aggressive and voracious character to it, the band has certainly achieved that with the EP and it is right to suggest the release is their finest moment yet. Not Tonight Josephine formed in 2008 and has consistently lured in praising attention locally and across broader spotlights leading up to that previous EP. Live too they have earned a potent reputation, shows with the likes of A Day To Remember, Underoath, Ice Nine Kills, Rise Against, New Found Glory, and The Colour Morale only adding to that. Common Gold followed a line-up change and seemed to find that flush of heavier and arguably rawer adventure which now roars from within the Not Tonight Josephine EP. As mentioned at the start, for us the bar has been raised recently, but it is all relative to personal tastes and definitely this new protagonist leaves only the fullest satisfaction and impressed reactions.

Recorded with From First To Last duo Taylor Larsen and Spencer Sotelo, the EP opens with brief instrumental 😉 . It is an atmospheric forty seconds which intrigues but is really the intro to the following ReEmerge. Why it has its own track listing it is hard to know but it is soon a thought of the past as the new track erupts with thumping beats and aggressive riffs bound in an instantly inviting melodic enterprise. Even as the song settles in to its tempestuous stride, the swings of drummer Christian Turt show no mercy, only impressing with their weight and tenacity. The raging image005vocal squalls of frontman Danny Garry and bassist Evan Foley also have a potent angst and attitude to them but it is the clean delivery of Garry that really impresses and steals the attention. It is fair to say that post hardcore bands have been predominantly impressing and grabbing our plaudits through the melodic side of their attack vocally, maybe too much of the same caustic shouting talking its toll on our patience and simply feeding expectations, and there is no doubting the might of that area in Not Tonight Josephine matched by the creative enterprise evolving round them. The use of strings and production twists only add to the drama and increasing success of the song, unpredictability an open weapon in the great start.

The following Nothing To Show is a brawl of vocal hostility and antagonistic sounds from the off, riffs and beats a delicious baiting as they intimidate and lead the listener into a maelstrom of vocal deliveries and twang lit grooves under a thunderous sky of attitude and sound. Not quite having the individuality of its predecessor or the imaginative punch, the song still intrigues and persuades with its mix of almost metalcore hostility, djent bred ferocity, and melodic expression woven by the skills of guitarists Scott Vallina and James Purcell. Whereas the last song broke ranks, this feeds expectations for the post hardcore sound, something you can say about Eyes which follows. Featuring a guest performance from Spencer Sotelo too, the track bellows and revolves with ear seizing adventure and satisfaction breeding pugnacity. It is wholly enjoyable but again does not surprise which is a real want in our admittedly demanding tastes.

Don’t Hold Your Tongue though is another matter, a fairer and mellower croon, it is bewitching. It is melodic rock at its captivating best, the balladry of sound and Garry’s outstanding vocals spellbinding and another excuse for us to say less caustic styling ahead please; save just for textural use. Song and band reveal a fresh charm to their songwriting and composing through it, with only the ever fiery beats of Turt offering dark and complimenting intensity.

The final song finds the band back in turbulent mood. Barefaced also shows the band to have the kind of invention and skill to help drive their genre on to new heights. The song is sensational, the EP’s top temptation where even the aggressive squalls work perfectly within the unbridled animosity and inventive spite of the encounter. It is a predator of a song but also an inescapable seduction, tearing the senses asunder then soothing the wounds with a vocal and harmonic caress. It has something special, a heavy dosage of startling and exciting imagination in thought and sound which reignites, what are becoming, tired ears for the standard post hardcore template.

Not Tonight Josephine band and EP is a highly enjoyable and impressing encounter; yes we know we have become picky and did pick here, but we come away from the release with satisfaction full and hopes for new creative blood in this genre re-energised a little more.

The Not Tonight Josephine EP is available from March 3rd
