Noise from Heaven by Anything After - An Interview


Prediletissimos deste que vos escreve, o Anything After passou por aqui com um tufão de white noise com seu absurdo album de estréia, que conforme eu coloquei é mais ou menos assim:

"There´s Something Warm e é um choque sua audição, um verdadeiro massacre noise em alta rotação sem tempo para se respirar. O vocal neuroticamente gritado dá o tom exato para as estridentes guitarras e o wall of sound que carrega o album do inicio ao fim.

O desfile de canções desde a abertura com Little Down até o ultimo acorde da redenção final com Same old Thing causa um estrago absurdo, e faz com que caras como eu, amantes de noise e guitarradas fiquem a merce da perfeição que estes caras fazem nesse album, em meio a um tiroteio sem limitações, All for This, She Always Said, Whats With You, Where Do I, Mistake e basicamente todas as canções do album são um cruzamento em alta rotação de In a Hole com April Skies e Precious Little, com uma linha de baixo que salta aos ouvidos a´la Simon Gallup."

E não contente resolvi contactar os caras para mais informações e saber mais destes californianos, mestres do wall of sound, onde gentilmente Brian Dale, Jason Ayala e Bradley Dale me concederam a belissima conversa abaixo, então saiba mais sobre a devastação vestida de noise chamada Anything After.
