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.
