Breaking music paradigms mathematically since 2010!
Beautiful, simply beautiful.
Shellac even after all these years still with the same energy that this new album is very much like his masterpiece debut At Action Park.
Raw sound, noisy, angular riffs, humour lyrics, powerful and complex melodies, which doesn’t follow a rhythm. They do their own rhythm. It’s a punch in your face.
So, no more talk and just hear this awesome album.
Thanks anon. Should be alright now :)
I think what I love most about Tim Collis of TTNG is that when he’s playing these insane guitar parts that barely anyone on this planet can replicate he’s just always like
here i am playing guitar for popular math rock band, this town needs guns
it’s not so hard
it’s like whatever i guess idk i’m indifferent honestly
22 is a very unique band, starting with the name. They are from Norway and make a sound that sounds like a mixture of Messhugah with A-ha.
Yes, it’s a strange mix the both, but proven effective and that worked very well. Has pop melodies and vocals as A-ha with all the complexity, technical and strange harmonies ala Messhugah. This all with good pinches of new prog and glitter.
I wish we had more bands who dared more like 22. We would have much more original and awesome bands like them.
Some bands achieve the recognition they deserve and become essential to the development of a style (Faraquet), but others fall into oblivion and fail the opportunity to demonstrate their musicianship. This is the case of Akarso.
Why I compared them Faraquet band? Simple. They are known to have made a split with the band Faraquet. And it was this split that I met the band.
Not much is known about them, only that it was a math rock band and they disbanded in 1999, leaving the bequeathing of 1 split with Faraquet, 1 ep and 1 single with the band Seven Days of Samara. 8 songs in total.
The band plays angular math rock with a much more aggressive sound and Screamo vocals. Sometimes closely resembles the Gospel band, only without all that power.
Anyway, it’s a shame that the band has not had a chance to continue their fine work. Perhaps had they made a debut album like Faraquet, they could be cited as being of paramount importance for the math rock like Faraquet. But what remains is just enjoy this awesome band.
