My Belgian friends Travølta finally released their first full length! This is a big thing for any band, and today I want to talk about the “In Tinnitus We Crust” album. Cover art is based on their joke cult around John Travolta, must say that this silly thing, still makes me smile.
17 songs were released in all popular formats: digital, vinyl, tape, and CD… I think it’s good because you can choose the most comfortable format for yourself. I have CD and tape versions in my collection (still need to get LP), and they look great, the quality is also very cool. But we all know that the visual side is not the most important thing for music release… Let’s play this bastard loud!
Travølta is a band from the new generation of powerviolence genre. They stand out by their clean sound and well-done production (sometimes even too clean for my taste). “In Tinnitus We Crust” is something you certainly need to be in the mood for and dedicate some time too.
This work is fully charged with aggressive energy and good social lyrics. Musically it`s something between loud chaotic madness and dreadful speed. Guitar sounds fuzzy and clear enough to catch some riffs. The vocal is full of protest and hate. Each drum beat sound nice especially is slow music parts. But the number 1 (at least for me) it`s a bass guitar sound. Its clanking and ringing sound is simply awesome. I am really happy that guys mixed everything in this way.
If powerviolence is not an empty word for you, then you should give this album a try!
