Hey Colossus wish everyone a Happy Birthday, though it doesn’t sound much like it as they spear great trundling rafts of noise with subsurface megaphonic vocals (then surge, unearthly, into a sludgecore overdrive). Their single-minded spasms of FX and fervid, rhythmic imperatives mashed together make heady, mind-altering stuff; which falls, inevitably, at the riff-heavy end of the spectrum.
Their fearless partnering of doom with a generous amount of motorik linearity weighs a good few tons; and the clever part, the key to their immensity, is to be found at the point where supercharged drums, innumerable guitars and electronics coalesce into a mighty, earth-trembling whole. This grinding magnitude of sound has a sheer inevitability about it. No respite is offered – there’s simply the promise of yet more feedback, more effects mangled into the fathomless low end; and the occasional explosive release on a hammering beat. Sometimes, it’s like being screamed at by an omnipresent demagogue in a hurricane; one who’s determined to buttonhole passers by and make them damn well listen – even if they’ve already been deafened by the surrounding storm. ‘Intense’ is an overused description, but Hey Colossus deserve it. Utterly.
