When you think of Sweden what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
That Brolin goal?
Suis La Lune?
Well forget them, as from now on it’s going to be emotional hardcore types Disembarked.
This their first proper release “I do Nothing But Regret The Fact I Left” is certainly an emotional ride.
Five songs in eleven minutes delivered with every last ounce of energy the band can muster. Considering that Disembarked have only been a band for just over a year makes this whole package even more impressive, the first document, a preview of what’s yet to come and if this is just the start then what will they be producing right now or in a couple of years?
I mentioned Suis La Lune earlier and in a way Disembarked sound fairly similar. Remember the exciting, fast aggressive parts from Suis La Lune? Well Disembarked sound like that throughout. This makes it a pretty intense listen, it’s almost like being stuck inside someone else’s head, it’s quite a claustrophobic sounding record.
The band don’t hang around as they lash into opener “Abscond”. This is a rather punishing start but you might as well start as you mean to go on. Its vicious but at the same time soothing as the EP is smothered in a wonderful guitar tone which lulls you into a false sense of security, it’s like a blanket over a thistle (Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m sure this is due to the band having two guitarists?). You can’t help but notice the passion and energy that oozes from every note and viciously wailed lyric.
Throughout the whole EP there’s an underlying aggression and anger that really could boil over into a chaotic blur of noise at any time, but it doesn’t, they keep it together and provide five fast, sharp bursts of screamo nirvana.
There isn’t much variety on show here but they do what they do very well and the record easily keeps your attention for the full eleven and a half minutes. I am personally a fan of this genre and have heard hundreds of bands from it, but Disembarked have something about them, an extra 5% that makes this record a must listen.
“I Do Nothing But Regret The Fact I Left” is now available to pre-order via the ever reliable Dog Knights Productions on two marvellous colours (7”).
