Brainbangers’ ball, tour of three worth to experience bands Rotor, Seven that Spells and Neume took place yesterday in Croatian Tvornica, which was recently renovated and already ready to bring the great experience to its audience.
First to play were already mentioned DURE-Mère, a french band who offers a great mixture of experimental, noise and tango with the great intensity and energy. They opened this event around 10 pm and after about 45 minutes, gave stage to German Neume.
Neume is a new band who released their first album “Inch” in 2010. after two EP releases “Weltuntergangsmaschine” i “Pi/Skull“. Duo that make Tim Bathelt (guitar and vocals) and Tim Jedro (drums) characterizes aggressive sound and they are perfect for sweating your ass off on their concert.
When Croatian Seven that Spells from Zagreb came on stage, audience got louder, not because they are Croatian, but because their psychadelic music makes you go madder. They made the great atmosphere and also promoted their new album “The Death And Resurrection Of Krautrock: AUM”.
German Rotor was the next to play. Berlin trio, already known for their great instrumentals, showed that their more than 10 years long career made them really worth seeing live. This was their second show inZagreb this year and it’s obvious that they’ve made fans playing here first time, since the audience responeded greatly on their psychadelic noise.
Tha last band who closed this great event were JapaneseAcid Mothers Temple, that can’t be easily described, as their music is way too “weird” to be defined under so called normal tags. The ambiental sounds played from the keyboards, mixed with psychadelic music made you feel like you’re on an interesting journey through different worlds.
The whole event lasted until 2 am and I’d say it was one of the better events offered to Croatian underground scene this year.
