Musing on Music - ONOMA
When you think of Israel, you don't think of alternative heavy metal. ONOMA is out to change all that. ONOMA just released their first single and video entitled Bug. It's quite amazing. It has a Tool-ish Alice in Chains-ish feel to it. It's stark and gritty and full of massive riffage thanks to Asaf Keidan on guitar. The bass sound on BUG is thumpin. In parts of the song, the bass is forefront. I love it! Andrei Aframov is a powerhouse. The vocals are sweetly wicked. Elad Koren has a sultry edge to his voice and then he lets it all out when he switches to the screamo type vocals. It makes you go O_o He's just that good! Saggi Chen's drumming hard and driving. If Bug is any indication of how the debut album sounds, "All Things Change" was a dark horse of 2012! To bad I didn't know about them sooner, or they'd be on the Top 10 Albums of 2012. Sylvia Masy and James Murphy created some wicked alchemy with ONOMA's debut album. All Things Change has that heavy feel that you get from a SOAD, Skunk Anansie, Testament album. Definitely check out ONOMA at Onoma Website and give them a "LIKE" on Onoma Band on Facebook Here is Bug from the debut album "All Things Change".
Heretique De Non Existentia Dei Via Nocturna Release: 26 March 2016
This is kinda happy to be death metal. It's, dare I say, jaunty! Listening to the tracks from Heretique's De Non Existentia Dei, make me happy. I have a loopy grin on my face and I'm banging my head along with the music. To be sure, De Non Existentia Dei is a heavy album. It's a veritable wall of sound. The vocals are Mojo Jojo worthy. But the tempo and timber fill me with glee! The songs are solid and concise. Sometimes they end before I want them to and I have to play them over again! This is the most awesome death black metal album. For those who are new to the genre or are curious, definitely start here with Heretique's De Non Existentia Dei. It's gobsmackingly done and done well. It's interesting and fun. It' oozes a delicious evil.

Turn on. Tune in. Drop out. That's how I feel listening to Klechdy by Thy Worshiper. It's ethereal and moving. The music totally draws you in. It's hard to put Klechdy into a category because so much of the compositions overlap in genre. The drumming can be tribal. The vocals can be folksy. The guitars have shades of avant garde, progressive, and Viking folk. There is no way to get bored listening to Klechdy. Thy Worshiper paints stunning visuals with music. Listening to Klechdy is a fully immersive musical experience.
