Only two guys in a mezzanine, and a monstrous, enormous loud sound, capable to destroy everything around, with the only use of a guitar and a drum set. Yeah, I imagine most bands would need much more than that.
The Scottish band Bronto Skylift was doing an in-store at Origami Vinyl on Saturday night and they played a set full of this engine-roaring guitar, these methodical shooting-like-a-submachine-gun drumbeats and these Kurt Cobain-esque screams.
There is a lot of passion in their extremely vociferous sound and when they were doing the sound check and adjusting the guitar, which was plugged into a guitar and a bass amp, the first strumming of it announced right away the animal.
And it was a wild beast, a little scary and out of control at times, which did not care very much for melodies or did not worry how people would receive the violent firing squad just above their heads, but their noisy jams occasionally slowed down, or even silenced for a few seconds, before starting again with even more energy, like regenerated. I am not sure what it was exactly, it was not metal, it was not exactly hardcore, or was it? But it sure was a ferocious assault to the ears.
They just had their first US performance at SXSW and have released last year a full length, ‘The White Crow’, a collection of these raging angry tracks, that seemed however a little hard to distinguish from each other live. But with such a weird moniker (trucks mounted hydraulic platforms if you wonder) no one should expect something less chaotic and dangerous
