     Fire On The Horizon - 2 

    最近这种比较重的东西基本都略过,电子跟氛围的东西听的比较多一点...
    Forgotten Empire除了这张今年也不缺Post-Metal的上品,比如
    Ninth Moon Black...
    Post-Metal跟Post-Rock交界这块儿真是佳作不断,比如If These Trees Could Talk,比如Sleepmakeswaves...
    Fire On The Horizon - 2选自他们未正式发行的同名Ep...呃,谁上myspace跟他们去买= =...

  •  Sound/Info: Myspace, & Label HP, Interview: Here

    The intention is to release a series of 12 CDR’s, one per month for a year. Each release will be limited to 100 copies and presented in clear wallets with a double sided colour sleeve inside or possibly a card insert. The artwork for the series will be created by Ben Curzon (Planet Mu, Make Mine Music, amongst others), and the 12 CDR covers, once seen together, will form one image. I think it’s very exciting and will look fantastic! Distant Noise was created by Tarl Broad-Ashman AKA Innerise. After a years of making music and following music, he decided to create a small label to follow his passion further. Releasing a series of albums each month to create 12 complete CD's that cover a wide range of musical influences, styles and forms, an exciting opportunity.

    Distant Noise Records.

    用创办人Tarl Broad-Ashman(Aka. Innerise)自己的话来说,他是这么形容Distant Noise的,"A New Small Label",小新厂...
    从对一些乐团的迷恋,到自己着手制作音乐,再到成立厂牌,路线大致都应该差不多吧...
    呃,我就不多说啥了,内篇采访稿介绍的蛮清楚...至于内12张封面最后会拼成个啥东西麽,呵呵,总之是个蛮"可爱"的东西...

After the first rehearsal we all knew right away that the music we made was something worth fighting for, so promises were made. And so Final Days Society's story begins.

    Rust Inside - [Music]

    In the valley, in the pretty starve
    I saw the shining light out of your smile
      
    Am I hurting you on your broken heart?
    Am I a mean trick man with twisted mind?
      
    It’s a sappy song in word, lacking all the trust
    Wearing all the skins, sparking in the smile
      
    Shadow in the ground, people are born to blame
    They are trying to find a way to the pale living place
      
    In the valley, in the pretty starve
    There is a shining light out of your smile
      
    It’s a sappy song in word, lacking all the trust
    Wearing all the fouls, sparking in the sun
      
    Leaking on the ground, sailing on the boat
    Are you suffering all the pains? Are you tasting all the blames?
     
    Wearing all the skins, dropping all the faces
    Am I wasting all your time? Am I killing all your life?
      
    To the end of all my road, to the sunrise all alone, are you sinking to below? Are you dating me alone?
    To the end of all my road, to the sunrise all alone, are you sinking to below? Are you dating me alone?
      
    Are you shaking from the words? Are you shaking from the world?
    Are you changing me alone? Are you cheating me from now?

    我不知道在IV之中是最喜欢"污水塘"还是"Rust Inside",即使是在看完Live之后我还是难以在他们之间取舍出一个"最"字...也许世界上并不存在甚么Best,只是不断的重复,重复不断取代的过程...
    到最后还是选择坐在了后排的墙壁处,并不是演出的乏味,只是找个合适自己待的地方,静静的体会现场惘闻所带来的情绪...
    其实开始的时候很担心现场的音效会让这首Rust Inside湮没在嘈杂的音墙之中...可当谢玉岗唱出第一句"In the valley"的时候,我意识到这一切的担心全是多余的...直到最后的吼叫,别样于专辑的真切.比任何爆发都更具感染力...
    是不是真的要把惘闻放到每个顶级乐队面前作一次比较,才来判定他是不是"世界级"水平的后摇乐队?
    也许外国的不少后摇乐队喜欢把目光放在一些"大"问题上:世界,战争,暴力,毁灭,绝望...而惘闻看到的,是一些身边的事物,是自己内心的情感...
    当一次次的冲刺,爆发,节奏,旋律都已经厌倦的时候,作这样的比较意义又何在...
    我只在乎那些最真切的东西,至于表面的形式,忽略吧...

    下载了他全部的mp3文件,wav就算了...虽然速度暴慢,不过总算是顺利拖完,比较意外= =...

    HELLAS MOUNDS, formed in early 2006, is a sonic flood of sounds, textures, and atmosphere that pulls you under barely letting up for even a moment to gasp for air. Even though they have not been around long they have already made a lasting mark while being compared to Mogwai, Red Sparowes, and Rosetta. 2007 saw the release of ‘The Last Ferry To Cydonia Demo Sessions EP’ and 2008 will see the release of a split with Empires.
