65daysofstatic – The Fall of Math: ten years later with Paul Wolinski

March 26th, 2014

Come 20 September 2014 and 65daysofstatic‘s debut album, The Fall of Math will be ten years old. It’s an album that thrust an instrumental post-rock band from Sheffield and all of their odd time signatures and samples of film dialogue firmly into the limelight. With radio attention and a lead single that resonated with many, it has led to the band having a healthy career of four more excellent albums, a soundtrack and a collaboration with Robert Smith of The Cure. Not bad. Here, we ask guitarist Paul Wolinski to talk about the album, track by track, ten years on.

Assuming the UK rock scene was the frozen aisle in your local supermarket (which I’m going to), the likes of You Me At Six and Lower Than Atlantis would be the pizzas, you know what you’re getting but still plenty of people of love them. While the likes of Yashin would be the horse-filled Findus ready meals, awful and while hardly household favourites are far more popular than they have any right to be. As The JCQ gear up to release their second album Mechanical Young, they find themselves being the musical equivalent of the beloved treat that is a tub of Neapolitan ice cream.

Ever since Arcane Roots started seeping into people’s consciousness, there has been one comparison that has repeatedly been brought up. A little band who have recently scored a number one album and completed a sold-out arena tour of the country by the name of Biffy Clyro. There’s no disputing the two bands have their similarities, with frontman Andrew Groves even looking pretty similar to Simon Neil.

Future Hits 133: Dyst

Dyst
From: Bergen, Norway
Lazy equation: Metalcore – Bergen Black Metal x #m0sh
URL: Facebook / Twitter

Thrash Hits verdict: These five youngsters take none of the black metal influences from their hometown. Clearly a product of the modern age, they’ve learnt their music from the internet. They sound like Bring Me The Horizon, Killswitch Engage, The Devil Wears Prada. Filled with all sorts of minor harmonics and arpeggios, it’s #m0sh or screamo or whatever you want to call it and it’s pretty good. We speak to singer Joakim Vindenes to get his take.

It’s been a long time coming. This album was being recorded a whole year ago but it’s taken ‘til now for Rise To Remain’s major label debut to be release. After playing every festival under the sun (twice) and supporting pretty much every great band ever, luckily for them, City Of Vultures is worth the wait.
