Beyond This Point Are Monsters:-
Are a five piece band from Derby that steer a long way from the traditional post rock quiet/loud formula. Exploring dynamics and structure they create articulate, psychedelic, progressive numbers that build around repeated complex guitar riffs and with subtle and clever changes, pounding drums and heavy bass make their sound bigger and bigger. Newbies to WotGodForGot followers but follow in the tradition of fine bands that have gone before so have a listen to some tracks on their myspace site through this link.
Release and downloads available from the Fight Me Records myspace website.
Cyril Snear are a band from Manchester that play ambient music that is sometimes post-rock sometimes indie/alternative/shoegaze and are back to play for WotGodForGot with a whole bunch of new tunes. Atmospheric subtle guitars and complex drum patterns with the occasional vocals reminiscent of Americana singer song writer Josh Rouse. A band that is difficult to pin down musically and in the past there have been hints that their influences have come from My Bloody Valentine and Radiohead but their quest for originality has produced a blend that they can call their own sound. They have a free CD demo so for goodness sake do your self a favour and get a copy.
Last time we saw then they supported We Vs Death and These Monsters but these days they are band worth seeing for their own worth. Have a listen at www.myspace.com/cyri1sne4r or www.cyrilsnear.co.uk
