Ghaust / Aseethe split CD review by Wastedrockers(ENGLISH VERSION)

Various Artists ‘Ghaust / Aseethe’ Split-CD (Cactus Records, 2010)

This is a dangerous release for local heavy music fans - released mid 2010, a split CD of Ghaust / Aseethe, a split cd from two bands from different country. Ghaust, like we all know, is a post-metal duo from Jakarta. While Aseethe is a sludge metal trio from Iowa, USA. The label that released this album is cactus Record, a label based in Malaysia.

This split cd containing 3 songs with long duration. First song, "Return Of Fire", come from Ghaust. This Ghaust's new song sounds more complex and dynamic : there's a fast part, heavy part and slow part. The duration is also quite long : 9 minutes. By the way, this song was recorded and mixed by Iyub from Santamonica / Sugarstar. While the second song is Ghaust's old song titled "Akasia", that re-mixed by Morgue Vanguard(Ucok) from Trigger Mortis / Homicide become “Akasia RMX”. Ucok totally rearranged this song into a heavy composition & noisy industrial, a hypnotizing power electronic.

The third composition titled "The Armada" come from Aseethe. Oh no, this song's duration is quite long : about 21 minutes! Long enough to make you sucked into the song! A typical of doom metal songs : slow, dark, heavy and atmospheric. Besides, this so was mixed and mastered by James Plotkin(the legendary producer behind the records of Isis, Sunn O))), Earth, Khanate, and such). SO to listen to this song, you have to spend a special time to contemplate within!

But I will not categorizing Aseethe as a pure doom metal, because their music basically is a dark atmosphered slow post-metal, give you a "doomy" feeling. Different from post metal that Ghaust offered, that tend to be more "light", melodic and melancholic.

By the way, the photography art for this album is pretty cool! A must have release to consume, enough said! - Dede

Genre: Post-Metal, Post-Industrial, Doom-Metal, Thingking-Man Metal
For the fans of: Cult Of Luna, Pelican, Red Sparowes, A Storm Of Light, Techno Animal, YOB, Battle Of Mice, Overmars.

To buy this CD, Please contact : soundofghaust@yahoo.com or cactusdistro@yahoo.com

Gig Review @ One Cafe, Kuala Lumpur


"Went back outside and saw a few more friends had arrived, and went back in for Indonesian band Ghaust. Seeing that the rest of the bands were pretty heavy, I was expecting Ghaust to be somewhat equally raw and heavy. Heavy it was, pretty much, but raw? No way in hell. Sophisticated, sleek guitars with an amazing drummer by his side, the two-piece were... heavenly. They played post-metal/post-rock, and obviously I fall for all that stuff, so I was completely lost in my own world during their set. LOVE!"

Ghaust interview w/ Maternal


Ada tentang kehidupan purba adapula tentang paus pembunuh, dapat! Pernah saya mendengar sebuah nasehat aneh ‘Agar suatu ikatan tetap kuat, pertama-tama gigitlah terlebih dahulu’, pengalih godaan dikembangkan secara runut akan selalu ada seperti mengumpulkan penggalan perkamen yang sempat hilang di perpustakaan, untuk sebuah ruang privat yang padat bahwa keseluruannya dapat ditemukan pada detail yang paling singkat. Yaaa baiklah!rapatkan gigi kuat-kuat menjadi pelancong imajiner yang terpukau oleh seduksi mereka layaknya tangan lembut yang menyentuh seekor siklop, selamat membaca.

1.Menurut saya pribadi, genus musik yang kalian usung adalah sebuah tataran lanskap ambiguitas yang longgar dalam konteks memiliki ke-dwi-artian licin yang multi-tafsir,lingkar simpul apakah yang Ghaust hendak wartakan kepada khalayak umum?

Heavy instrumental rock infuse with hardcore punk, sludge/doom, and post rock. Masih ambigukah?? Fokus saja ke Instrumental Heavy Rock nya.

2.Ok,Asik itu dia – intensionalitas.Jika di-analogikan sebagai kambing yang hendak disembelih,sembari mengembik-embik.Berada di kolom manakah Ghaust merasa nyaman diposisikan, Ressentimen (perasaan kecewa/muak) atau evangile (pembawa kabar baik)?

GHAUST vs IBLIS KOTOR Review by Wastedrockers

Untuk urusan musik-musik experimental / indietronic / folktronica di scene Jakarta, memang Space Records adalah juaranya. Sebuah record-label independen lokal yang tergolong “cult” namun banyak melahirkan musisi-musisi brilian. Saya bertemu banyak musisi keren di sini.

Split-EP ini adalah rilisan terbaru dari Space Records. Materi album ini berisi dua track, yang masing-masing artis menyumbang satu track. Lagu pertama dari duo post-metal ternama Jakarta, Ghaust (www.myspace.com/soundofghaust) berjudul “Day After (Entering Into Peace)” yang diambil dari full-length Ghaust (2008). Sementara track kedua yang berjudul “Year After (Entering Into Nothing)” disumbang oleh Iblis Kotor (www.myspace.com/dirtydevilish); proyek output experimental dari Abim (Curah Melodia Mandiri). Nampaknya lagu “Year After (Entering Into Nothing)” dari Iblis Kotor merupakan reinterpretasi dari “Day After (Entering Into Peace)” milik Ghaust. Jadinya masing-masing lagu saling berkaitan. Bisa dikatakan split-EP Ghaust vs Iblis Kotor adalah sebuah mini rock-opera.

Karena Ghaust di sini menyumbang lagu lama mereka, jadi saya tidak bisa berkata lebih. Lagian kalian semua sudah tahu musikalitas Ghaust seperti apa: top-notch. Mungkin di sini saya akan lebih banyak membahas mengenai Iblis Kotor. Karena ternyata musikalitas proyek ini sangatlah maksimal! Terlebih setelah saya menyimak penampilan mereka yang memukau di ‘Jakarta Noise Fest #2’ beberapa waktu yang lalu.

Sebelumnya, seperti biasa di sini Abim memakai grand-piano nya sebagai instrumen utama. Dan di lagu “Year After (Entering Into Nothing)” ini, Iblis Kotor featuring Anes Guo.

‘Eklektik’ adalah kata yang pas untuk menggambarkan musikalitas dari Iblis Kotor. Karena di lagu “Year After (Entering Into Nothing)” yang berdurasi hampir sembilan belas menitan ini terdengar banyak pengaruh musik. Mulai di awal, kita dibawa ke suasana kelam cool-jazz lewat permainan grand-piano Hammond yang bernuansa epic. Lalu di bagian selanjutnya mulai masuk unsur-unsur perkusif musik Latin / Tropical, hingga membuat ritme musik menjadi lebih up-beat dan danceable. Semua mengalir tanpa tidak kita sadari, flow musik sudah berlanjut menuju 70’s psychedelic-rock dengan solo gitar Fender yang meraung-raung. Kemudian musiknya mendadak kembali menjadi Salsa. Selepas itu, kembali hening dengan hangatnya 60’s psychedelia / ambient / repetitive-music lewat permainan Mellotron. Hingga akhirnya di bagian klimaks, kemegahan grand-piano kembali mengambil alih dengan low-key nya. Sesudah klimaks diturunkan mood-nya dengan kord-kord minor, Iblis Kotor langsung kembali mengajak kita berdansa ramai-ramai bersama solo-gitar dan tetabuhan musik Latin. Ketika saya berpikir lagu ini bakal ‘happy-ending’ tiba-tiba Iblis Kotor membawa kembali saya ke alam gelapnya, lewat permainan grand-piano dan sound drum-nya yang lebar. Nampaknya rock-opera yang ditawarkan oleh Iblis Kotor di sini bisa dengan mudah mempermainkan mood para pendengarnya!

Emosi pendengar memang dibawa kesana-kemari oleh musik kontemplatif yang disajikan Iblis Kotor. Dari keceriaan pada awalnya, lalu dibawa down di bagian tengahnya. Menjelang akhir dibawa kembali untuk bergoyang, hingga kembali ke bagian gelap di akhir lagu.

Berbagai influens musik yang disajikan oleh Iblis Kotor memang terangkum dalam term krautrock atau post-rock (ket: post-rock yang dimaksud di sini adalah gerakan post-rock era-era awal. Bukan tipikal post-rock era 2000-an yang biasa kalian dengar). Rilisan split-EP ini bagi saya pribadi sih adalah teaser yang manis untuk full-length dari Iblis Kotor yang pastinya bakal dashyat. Kami nanti Abim albumnya! ;) Juga untuk album kedua dari Ghaust yang pastinya ditunggu oleh banyak orang. Oh iya, artwork album ini dikerjakan oleh Abim (Iblis Kotor), Aryo & Ojon dari Space System. Album ini wajib untuk kalian semua dengarkan. Jempol tangan dan kaki saya, saya berikan untuk album ini. Sangat, sangat, sangat, kami rekomendasikan! – Dede

This is not just post rock and sludge for post rock and sludge's sake, this song, perfectly arranged, parts woven into other parts, melodies, and harmonies, it's incredible complex, which is why the music of Ghaust resonates, and continues to move well beyond the boundaries of the genre. The is, needless to say, totally essential!
