Kaleidobolt + Orkan

Easy Tiger + Sound of Liberation present:

KALEIDOBOLT + Orkan LIVE!

A Kaleidobolt live show is both a sublime and startling affair: it will leave leave you with a grin on your face, gasping for air and possibly partially deaf. Their music is a dizzying maelstrom of progressive song structures, pulverising riffs and loose psychedelic soundscapes, delivered with joy and ferociousness. Kaleidobolt is a power trio that was formed in 2014 in Helsinki, Finland, they have released two albums: Kaleidobolt and The Zenith Cracks (Pink Tank Records 2015, 2016) and toured all over Europe.

ORKAN 

One of the Swedish Gothenburg music scene’s most exciting and brightest shining names at the moment is the prog quintet Orkan. Meaning “Hurricane” in Swedish, it’s both a perfect metaphor for
the band’s sound as well as their recent success. Orkan tell tales of an unjust system, of the ruthlessness of modern society and of the resistance and revenge of Mother Nature, making the amps
scream as well as the on-looking audience. The band touches on difficult themes in with the times, and there is room for both anger, sorrow and joy in their songs. The music of Orkan is dance-friendly and easy to sing along to, but it is also earnest and highly serious. The band’s sound is almost reminiscent of that of classic punk rock, characterized by drummer Moa-Linn Rosenlöf’s and bassist Theresia Dufva’s energizing rhythm section, where an extra punch is thrown into the mix in the form of Kim Bertilsson on the saxophone. Josephine Green’s straight-forward and high-powered riffs blend perfectly together with Fredrik Pettersson’s more melodic Stratocaster solos. The concept of Orkan is undoubtedly inspired by the 1970’s Swedish progressive musical movement, but the band should not at all be described as project based on pure nostalgia. While one foot is resting in the progressive rock heritage, the other is steadily planted in our contemporary times with moving and insightful lyrics that
encourage the listener to reflect and show solidarity with fellow humans.
2017 was an especially exciting year for Orkan. After a successful cross-country tour as the opening act of the prog rock veteran band Nynningen Orkan has played for packed venues wherever they go
and no one is left unaffected by their progress. “Orkan is leading the new prog rock movement”, acknowledges the band Nynningen, and no one seems to object to this claim. In September 2017 Orkan released their self-titled first full-length LP on the Gothenburg based label Alleycat Records. Since before the band have released a 7” single on the same label. The band is currently working on new material and receives new bookings.

In Zaire, Caudal, Alphatrip, Thisquietarmy / Free Entry Show

Sound of Cobra Records and MILK ME present:

In Zaire
Sound Of Cobra Records

In Zaire are closing the chapter opened in 2013 with their critically acclaimed debut full-length „White Sun Black Sun“.
This time, the fever-dance takes on new environments, new worlds, new visions. „Visions Of The Age To Come“ is the aptly named follow-ups name that is to be released on Sound Of Cobra Records this spring.

Packing eight tracks of sprawling all-ends-open psych workouts with a definite rock edge to them, their visions have sharpened to a determined longing into the unknown that is most aware of the preceding waypoints the band has travelled through so far.

At the heart of it all is still the underlying hum of the universe and its infinite vibrations – this is boldly stated with „Hermes Dance“, the albums literal opening track. It functions as a foreboding vision showcasing the essentials of the band: rhythm as key to a broad palette of ever-shifting atmospheres and emotions. As soon as this new chapter is opened, we see In Zaire reaping what they’ve sown in the past with a plethora of high-energy riffs and freewheeling outbursts that communicate with each other in a way that brings the ever so apparent dichotomous dance of chaos and form, of focus and blur to the surface of things.

Where its predecessor was bred in much more blurred musical hotbeds, „Visions Of The Age To Come“ is an expressive kaleidoscope of projections (or perceptions?) coming into focus, and in doing so presenting a rich dialogue with the inner and the outer realities we all have to balance. Through the course of the record we get confronted with sonorous entities constantly trying to work with themselves in order to transform, to find new shapes and to eventually pinpoint the reason of their longing.
Culminating in what is arguably the records key track, „The Seven Sermons Of The Dead“ sees the band leading their newfound approach to the edge with an intense marriage of their rock roots with the outer planes they constantly flirt with – the entrancing main riff moves like a snake in a dizzying journey, which finds its destination in the closing title track.
The intensity lifts, the curtains fall, an ending giving birth to a new beginning – In Zaire’s age to come is a promising one.

Caudal
CAUDAL is a trio featuring Aidan Baker (CA – Nadja, BBS, etc.) on guitar, Gareth Sweeney (IE – Gout) on bass, and Felipe Salazar (CO – Muerte En Pereira, Hypnodrone Ensemble) on drums. Baker’s multi-layered, heavily affected guitar overlays Sweeney and Salazar’s driving, propulsive rhythm section creating music equally influenced by krautrock, post-punk, and spacerock.

alphatrip
Das Berliner Duo von ALPHATRIP ist an der Reihe und versetzt den Zuhörer mit psychedelischen Postrockklängen in Trance. Nur mit Gitarre und Schlagzeug bewaffnet schaffen sie es, eine Wand auf Klängen zu erzeugen, die sich anhört, wie ein von Jim Morrison beschriebener Meskalintrip in der Wüste. Es gibt keine wirklichen Pausen, die beiden Musiker spielen und spielen und kommunizieren untereinander mit ihren Blicken. Ist das jetzt ein langer Song oder viele kürzere? Man weiß es nicht und eigentlich ist es auch egal. Es klingt gut. Man verweilt, schließt die Augen und lauscht, bis es irgendwann still wird.
