1Q94
Twelve Monkeys
(self-financed)
13:15min

Vegan Metal from Bangkok, Thailand. The opener ‘War Horses’ starts with some classic Metal riffs and develops into a Doom Metal track with a heavy touch on BATHORY (epic "Hammerheart" era), only the Hardcore chanting (Oi! Oi! Oi!) is a little irritating. The titletrack comes up with clear vocals and more Punk influenced riffing, not really a Metal song. For my ears some kind of slow downed version of NOFX. Even the typical singalong background chorus sounds sluggish. Third and last song ‘Schrödinger’s Cat’ surprises with some bittersweet melodies and clear singing, the influence of bands like BORKNAGAR or AMORPHIS is obvious. All in all a pretty weird mixture, but since the songs are all well-crafted and the sound is adequate, I have nothing to criticize. Open minded people may visit the band at www.1q94.bandcamp.com/releases or www.facebook.com/1Q94-1057808537582398
