Rishloo - Feathergun (2009)
The third album from this US band.
Rishloo is a quartet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
I have reviewed their previous two albums and I will review their fourth and final album too.
I was not impressed about their take on post-punk/metal on their first two albums. You can read the reviews somewhere else in this blog.
Hence, I was not looking forward to this album.
Their music is still hard and very post-something. That means post-rock and post-metal in this case. It is The Mars Volta meets............ Radiohead !
The music has become a lot softer and melodic inbetween cascades of brutal post-metal. There is indeed a lot of post-rock here too.
The music is indeed very epic and almost symphonic melodic at times. There are a lot pastoral parts inbetween some more brutal cascades of post-metal here.
There are even some pretty traditional songs with post-rock influences here.
The end result is pretty impressive. This one hour long album has indeed a lot going for it. The songs are all good to very good. There is not a single killer track here. But this album is at times a sheer pleasure.
This is indeed a very good album and one to really check out.
