Veuve S.S - VISCÈRES EP
Review by Brayden Bagnall
For Fans Of: Vile Gash, Cult Ritual, Nazi Dust, The Men, Hoax, Torch Runner
I was put onto this band by a guy who may or may not be a member (it's hard to tell when all the band members are listed under initials only), and I gotta say, I'm glad I got that email.
Veuve S.S. seem to be embracing all the best things about (mysterious guy) hardcore - the violence, the esotericism and the dark vibes. The French four piece have concocted a gnarly sound that successfully merges the feedback drenched, angular riffage of noisy hardcore, and the chaotic, claustrophobic vibe of dark hardcore. Combine this with some ungodly, crusty vocals and you've got yourself a pretty formidable band.
Veuve S.S. speed back and forth between sludgy, noise rock dirges, powerchord bangers and blastbeat frenzies in the space of one song, and sound damn good doing it. Variation is always welcome, even more so if its coming at you like a nest of angry hornets.
The Visceres EP, along with later splits and releases PLUS a demo are all available on the band's bandcamp for free or purchase in physical form. Additionally, if you're keen to keep up with the band and check out some cool artwork, head on over to their blog HERE and chuck them a follow if you happen to be a tumblr user.
