Silver Snakes(Bridge 9)
Year of the Snake is Silver Snakes' first full-length in nearly three years, following 2011's Pictures of a Floating World (as well as 2012's Old Light single and last year's split EP with Souvenirs and Sundance teaser). Their sophomore effort builds on the promise of those releases, delivering a heavy, uncompromising, metallic post-hardcore/alternative hybrid experimentally touching upon both ends of the rock spectrum, from sludgy forays to acoustic detours and a snarling melodic sensibility spread throughout.
Heavy Horse is comprised of three close knit dudes that want to have fun playing music that will shake you.
When not collecting rare flavors of jolly ranchers candy, the Phranklyn Project is constantly hard at work perfecting their personal blend of power pop music. A blend that combines the tech savvy flavor of 80’s new wave with the guitar pop of the 90’s and mixes it all together with this century emo/pop punk. Forming in 2005, the Phranklyn Project has been known for melting faces and taking names. With their uncompromising hardcore, take no prisoners pop music, the Phranklyn Project has set the music industry ablaze. Through trials and tribulations the band has withstood the test of time (three years), and after several miscarriages the band has finally given birth to their 2008 release, “Turn the Radio Up!” With Kat’s pounding drums, Joe’s bouncing bass, and topher 's guitar melodic pop attack, “Turn the Radio Up!” shows how much the band has grown since their ironically titled 2005 EP, “In No Hurry to Grow Up!!!” A growth undoubtedly learned from three years of stage experience. Experience that ranges from opening locally for national acts like Wheatus, Kill Hannah, Authority Zero, and Rehab; to doing their own self booked regional tours. And this is just the beginning, with no signs of stopping soon the Phranklyn Project plan on being that guilty pop pleasure that rots ones teeth out for years to come...
The trio tread a unique musical path that draws equally from several disparate music worlds. The austere and appropriately-titled album is a somber, sobering affair that brings together hypnotic psychedelic harmonies, lush and introspective sonic textures, and a relentless intensity found in the most blackened metal to stunning effect.
Whether through driving melodies, explosive noise, or the most fragile of interludes, Winter Hours hits hard and resonates deeply within the listener
