Comets on Fire. Comets on Fire The five member San Francisco-based group sits down to discuss charges of mellowing, the power of getting loaded, their critically lauded album Avatarand how they might not be as psychedelic as they're made out to be.
Tapes 'n Tapes. Six Organs of Admittance. ArthurFest At some point during the first day of Arthurfest, I found myself in a conversation with Spam, drummer and friend The songs really do have moments where anything can happen, and you'd be fine with listening to it, from noisy moments, to extended guitar solos, odd vocal passages, it really is interesting to hear.
Although I think the best songs on the album are the songs that sound more different. Their is 5 songs I absolutely love on this album, and its mainly because their so different than the other 2. I love it when the songs take on a more melodic touch, rather than just noisy psychadellia. These guys really can craft great songs, and really make something magical. Even in the jams, they take you on acid trips, and as background music, this works really well.
The musicianship is amazing too, with each member showing off whatever they can do on a chosen instrument, and some can even play several. Dogwood Rust - Great how it just dives straight into the song. Great jamming in it, which really takes you on a psychadelic acid trip.
Jaybird - Nice laid back feel to the song, Album). Great main riff. The song reminds me of Bad Company for some odd reason.
The build up and the ending throughout is pretty cool too. Lucifer's Memory - This song for some reason reminds me of Tom Waits, mainly because of the piano playing and the arrangement. The piano really does add beauty to this song. The guitar leeds are very pretty and interesting. One of the best songs on the album definitly. The Swallow's Eye - The intro is very post rock. I love how the vocals are low in the mix and how noise is used to add depth.
The jam at the end is cool too. Holy Teeth - This song sounds like Boris Japanese drone band. Very punky, and I love the vocals. Short and sweet really. Sour Smoke - Just a great instrumental. Album) love that reptitive odd timed riff. This song also has quite a folky feel to it too, and at times sounds like Jethro Tull jamming with Wishbone Ash.
For a long 8 minute instrumental, it really doesn't get boring, which is great because it puts Metallica to shame haha. Hatching Upon The Age - Great piano riffs in the song.
The vocals are the real highlight though, because they're amazing. One of the most catchiest song on the album, with a cool chorus. This is just an amazing end to a great album.
I never usually get really into bands like this, but these guys are something special. It's not perfect, but it is one great album. This ladies and gentlemen is Comets on Fire's forth album Avatar, now i never heard this band until this album, and it really made me want to buy and explore more of their music. Starting out as a noise rock band the band seemed to quickly move away into the more psychedelic, stoner progressive rock aproach and this is the album were they really take it and make it their own, there are shades of The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, theres even shades of The Beatles on this release, all pulled off with percision.
Dogwood Rust is a great opener, it sounds as if it starts out in the middle of the song displaying great energy right away. The dual guitars of Ethan Miller and Ben Chasny introduced on Blue Cathedral sound fantastic and jam throughout the track in all their bluesy glory.
Noel von Harmonson joins in with his signature echoplex he'll showcase his piano talents again as wellbut its presence is different on Part 4 - Comets On Fire - Bong Voyage (Vinyl album. Instead of towering over the rest of the music as it did on previous releases, it is much quieter here and fits in with the other instruments well with the exception of Holy Teeth. Halfway through the song the tempo slows down and the rhythm section delivers a pounding beat that carries the rest of the song to its finish.
The absence of the menacing sonic walls and electronic effects caused me to notice other great talents the band has to offer when listening to Avatar. For example, Utrillo LP drumming carries these tunes as well as one could ask for. He was great on their previous releases, but here the drumming is very noticeable and one of the strongest points of this future classic album.
Absolutely superb. Another thing is the vocal talent of Ethan Miller. They've always sounded distorted or reverberated on other releases, but here they sound much more natural.
Especially on quieter tracks like Lucifer's Memory and Hatched Upon the Age they've never sounded better. Any of the songs featuring Noel von Harmonson's piano playing create an exotic sense of beauty exclusive to Comets on Fire, especially in the strikingly unique and atmospheric Sour Smoke.
Holy Teeth with its loud echoplex and noisy guitars does seem to sound a bit out of place on this album, though to me it sounds like a nod to their early garage punk days. But with an updated more progressive edge to it.
