http://asenseofgravity.bandcamp.com/album/travail I didn't end up keeping these guys, but I do find these guys really interesting. I think I personally prefer the jazz leads over the full on jazz parts Ever Forthright does, but I figured I'd link it here in case anyone was interested in what these guys were going for on the 2009 demo.
Never said I didn't like them, just saying I have notes to skip the pure jazz parts. They did start out as technical death metal, curious how they'd be now if they kept that on getting Chris in the band. (I refer to the 2009 demo)
I actually kinda prefer the 2010 demo...far less jazz influences and not nearly as much MIDI programming as there is programming on the album, which gets a bit overactive at times it seems. That said, they definitely have a lot of talent...I just have a personal strong distaste for jazz.
Wow, first listen of the instrumental album (physical CD is in the mail) and I feel like I listened to 5 albums in the timespan. It might be the most compact debut album I've ever heard...not even sure I will be able to listen to them with vocals haha.
"it's been in the news for a couple weeks or so. Check monuments FB you'll see pics of Chris now." I see. Also fuck Myriad Records, god damn it.....well I can see them fitting pretty well under Basick Records. I hope things get better for them in the next few months.
Yeah, they'll fit in nicely with [url=http://www.season-of-mist.com/]Season of Mist[/url] as well, I was kinda thinking [url=http://www.subliminalgroove.com/]Subliminal Groove Records[/url] but they're more of a starter label. I'm sure they won't stay unsigned very long though, especially after this next album materializes and they have a pretty good fan base to boot. \m/
Nice that they got their travel costs covered (and then some). Pity they've still been robbed at the end of the day, by admittedly making a very poor decision with their money. Hopefully they can focus on touring their asses off, finding a home on a legitimate label, and actually make a profit on the eventual release of their new album.
I think they'll fit in nicely with Sumerian Records or Basick Records because of the obvious similar type of bands on their rosters, making it much easier to promote. Jeez, you got hard working bands looking to get signed and you have douche bag labels like Myriad and Mediaskare looking to fuck 'em over. That's nothing new but as bands are looking to get signed, they have to be more cautious of who they sign up with. It may be hard for some unsigned bands to do that but being signed doesn't necessarily mean that they have it made in the shade either. In some cases, some bands are worst off after getting signed. Mad respect to bands who continue on making sick music regardless of the pros and cons of today's music industry. \m/
The band has decided to part ways with their label Myriad Records. Atm, they're just at the writing stage on their next album so their departure from Myriad will not affect the album of being released on it's own. \m/
