Faux Carrion effortlessly delves into a monumental soundscape and it’s hard to believe the sounds created in this full-bodied record reflects on just 3 members.
From the get-go Faux Carrion projects a fierce collision of mathy space rock. From That, Was A Warning Cone! through to Who The Fuck Is Runcorn? each compelling track conveys monotonous hard hitting riffs, pelting and driving beats, flirting with an ample backdrop of ambient electronic elements. The three are masters of building their tracks from the ground up; they’ve nailed those dynamic break-downs with perfectly timed and very tight enthralment. Mathy tweaks, subtle tapping and Russian Circles– esque build up’s make this release a must-hear.
Memory of Elephants have stepped out of their comfort zone to create rushing interludes, dark progressive textrures and powerful crescendos. The three thrive on energy and high-octane atmosphere, which you can see present at any live show. That energy they create has been flawlessly captured into this recorded and conquering exploration.
