Raw guitar based rock with Wire rhythms and Loop (the band) swirls mixed with some Flipper like screaming. Post punk drone rock metal? You decide. GABA transmitters ablaze. RIYL Nadja and company.
From headlong infusions of psychedelic rock to the limitless furrows of doom, in "Happy Birthday" London's Hey Colossus has constructed an all conquering citadel of experimental/metal disrepair.
The album is a rampaging fire-cloud of super stoked riffs and ever mounting walls of feedback, a rough house collection of battering new songs driven at sweltering pace by a band with a fearless momentum.
This the record that the band has always threatened to unleash - a pitch black album for our ever scorched earth.
For fans of : Unsane, Neu!, Circle, Corrupted, Eyehategod, Fudge Tunnel, Sludge, Doom etc

Well this is damn good. I’m struggling to describe it, but here goes: Birthday Party era Nick Cave arthouse post punk with a stoner rock vibe to the production. Whew!
The bass drives the music and there is considerable variety between the songs. They tag it as, among others, psychedelic rock, and while I’m not sure I hear it, this lines up nicely with other recent standout additions to my collection like Hochen, Dreamtime, and Black Rainbows, who also use that tag. So maybe it’s just me. Lute FP

Another fine installment on the path they started diggin since 2015' Black&Gold. This one sounds définitive. So good ! I wouldn't be surprised if they change it all on their next offering. But for now juste sit back and enjoy the ride. berenger mouton
