Even a cursory glance of our biweekly “What Heavy Blog Is Really Listening To” posts (last week’s update here) will reveal that there is a great deal of variety among our staff’s musical tastes. Due to this, we brainstormed the idea of “Playlist Swap,” another biweekly segment that takes place between playlist updates. We randomly select two of the participants from each update, have them pick their favorite track from each of the nine albums in their grid and then send the list over to the other person to listen to and comment on. Within these commentaries occurs praise, criticism and discovery, and we hope that you experience a few instances of this last point as well. This week’s post has Noyan and David getting together for the first time for a steamy exchange of liqu… playlists.

Noyan’s Grid & David’s Comments:

Coma Cluster Void—Mind Cemeteries—“Everything Is Meant To Kill Us”

Noyan: I’m going to be lazy again and link my thoughts on this very song from when I premiered its video.


David: Similar to Crator, Coma Cluster Void was a band that I hadn’t heard of prior to this playlist swap, yet became immediately interested in once I read up on them. Also similar to Crator, their music is fucking insane. ‘Everything is Meant to Kill Us’ is four and a half minutes of batshit crazy, mathy death metal that sounds absolutely suffocating. It reminded me of everything from Meshuggah and Car Bomb to Pyrrhon and Ulcerate, and it weaves all those influences together to form an entirely singular brand of madness. I didn’t even try to understand the music on a theoretical level by e.g. guessing the time signatures, as I was perfectly content to just go along this headfuck of a ride. “Mind cemeteries” indeed.

"It's not fusion music, where you can find elements of progressive or jazz combined with metal ... it's metal done in a revolutionary way! Coma Cluster Void has a very personal aesthetic, i think they're one of the best bands to check out."

As implausible as it seems, when I saw Cryptopsy back in 1998, Mike DiSalvo projected his vocals with such force I swore I heard him over the PA. A roar like that is too good to retire, and luckily the man is back fronting pan-continental newcomers Coma Cluster Void. With Mind Cemetaries, the band traverses a math-centric territory somewhere between Gorguts and Meshuggah while DiSalvo experiments with various grunts, growls, and gravelly spoken word performances. Clearly a group with no shortage of talent and ideas. [$8]


For those who missed our last installment, We post biweekly updates covering what the staff at Heavy Blog have been spinning. Given the amount of time we spend on the site telling you about music that does not fall neatly into the confines of conventional “metal,” it should come as no surprise that many of us on staff have pretty eclectic tastes that range far outside of metal and heavy things.
