MyToyTrain - Porcelain Smile
Thanks again to Russell for the CD. Great trepidation accompanied
this being played; justified, or not?
Marginally better than the previous EP but only just. Obviously
I'm missing the point. Love the vocals, at times you produce excellent
riffs, but your undeniably technical and proficient musicians are
wasted playing this. Over-complicated and very nearly unlistenable.
- When Horses Were Heroes. Let's take this
section by section. Doom/sludge riff opens the track with atmospheric
keyboards/ samples. A bass jazz section goes into a hardcore
riff which morphs into a death metal feel discordant section.
This has all taken place at breakneck speed, I was relieved
that there was a lengthy pause at this point. Then to really
endear themselves the vocalist starts pig-squealing. Absolute
- Faces Of The Frgoten. Great opening riff
before mayhem, and ultimately confusion, erupts. Liked the slower
section apart from the woeful keyboard work/samples. Vocals
are again savage hardcore style. Thankfully it's a short track...
- You Call It Murder I Call It Art. The wife
has re-dubbed this You Call It Art I Call It Murder, succinctly
done jolly woman. Opening sounds unrehearsed and that's being
kind, more like every musician trying to play a different song.
The charming lyric "Get Fucking Dead" precedes the
one quality moment of this track, that being a great doom/sludge
riff. Too many unfinished ideas once more.
