In today’s episode of “This isn’t a TV Show, What the Fuck Do You Think You’re Doing,” we talk Russian! …rather, we talk about a Russian band, because I don’t know any Russian. Uncultured P.o.S. of the U.S.A. reporting for the duty!
Thrash is a style that should be known for its relentless energy (as opposed to just “GOTTA GO FAST”),
and technicality should be used for making songs complex enough to keep
things interesting (as opposed to “GOTTA BE COMPLEX”). Unfortunately, the italicized bits in parenthesis are the most rampant amongst both ideas. These Russian lads, however, decided to do the “shoulds” in both fields by creating and releasing an album that, during it’s near 50 minute playtime, couldn’t be boring even if it wanted to. The whole thing throws cinder blocks in unpredictable ways so you never really know which direction you have to dodge in. Hell, you almost don’t want to dodge, because you start to appreciate the intensity of it all.
… noting that if anyone ever literally starts throwing cinder blocks at you, DO dodge. I’m sure ever masocists would agree with that.
Unfortunately, I don’t know much else about these guys beyond the fact that they only released that one album in ‘92 titled “Кровоизлияние“ (Extravasation), which has been rereleased a few times (as well as remastered in the past year). I don’t know what else they’re doing, since I don’t understand Russian in any way, and I don’t trust internet translation tools at all. I know there’s merchandize to be found, like sick-ass t-shirts n’ stuff. That would be pretty sweet to have. But are they touring? Could they possibly be writing new material? That would be fucking awesome, wouldn’t it?
