gunslingers' "manifesto zero" out on world in sound
Who should have thought some incoming spawn would survive No More Invention (2008) ? — Yes Sirs, inside the Grand Procreator's consumed ashes, still half lying half standing thus was some rebel mass endowed with the urge to appear in face of the fallen stuff. It would be chemically determined as a following sacrificial revenge after Invention got lost 2 years ago in a Rock located in San Pedro Ville, France.
And then came rebellion appearing in its entire regained nudity, though it was given a load of Seltz water so it can endure its own terrifying blast power. Here it is — now Maniacs & Zealots, be afraid of intending to tickle the Beast from your players !
World In Sound presents Manifesto Zero, Gunslingers' second atrocious little deformed baby, recorded on the infuriated November of 2009 while evil-red-eyed wolves were getting enraged in the frightened night. No doubt it has to be a relentless sonic testimony in the style of throwing Vitriol at the snobbish subculture's face and, Willy-nilly, you'll be given a proper naughty chase and a sixfold punishment always greedy of its prey from start to finish.
Rhythmically Cyclopean _ as overexcited as starving due to the constant hammering of its ritualistic tempo & contra-tempo gluttony _, its disturbing debauchery of lysergic & contemplative elements gives besides the whole savagery thing some multiple-headed Beast aspect by leading its own sound color touch (& its obvious axis of devastation) right into the alley of a space glider under over-saturated hypnosis ; and more generally, into variable expressions & exploration areas which stand between Underground Rock Music's unclassified genres & subgenres.
Demented Guitar wall-of-acid-riffs, pissed off takeoffs & instrumental smashs on bewitchment mode, harmonic death traps, pulsatory frenzy & insane grooves in the likes of a vicious contortionist highway, startling surrealistic vocals sealed to a psychotic Daedalus-esque bass unfurling, and ultimately a scary statement of visceral power.
The whole thing devoted to the cult of analog 4 track tape recording, the everlasting oily machine & Slingers dynamo.
Manifesto Zero is nothing less than an authentic firebrand.
