Kiss It Goodbye - She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not...

Revelation, 1997, CD, Vinyl, Clear Vinyl

This is some nasty dark shit. Really you might fall into a black hole of hell if you kept listening to this and didn't throw on the Beyonce CD from time to time or leave your house.It doesn't sound like some fun happy times. It has this pre-millenium apocalyptic feel to it....A churning, heavy, rumbling calamity.The songs are spread out over 5 minutes or more in most cases and cross the metal/hardcore divide while adding other elements.

Will Haven fans will enjoy it but the sound and the songs are not as focused or simplistic as Will Haven. Half-way through some tracks the music can randomly quiet down while the singer goes into some cathartic whispering and delirious rambling, relating personal stories of strife and struggle to the listener. This goes on a while and then the whole job comes thundering back in for some diabolical conclusion.

They get this loud/quiet dynamic done as well as any band in the genre. Even 13 years later this sounds visceral and authentic, whereas if I listen to similar attempts at this kind of approach in the nu-metal bands from that time, I just end up laughing. Members of the band came from Rorschach and Deadguy, and fans of both of those bands will find something here as will most heavy music fans if they listen to it a few times.
