EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Listen To Bodhi Get “Ineffable” In Full!

A while ago, I told you to listen to Bodhi. It is a solo project/moniker of one Justin Seymour, otherwise a member of The Room Colored Charlatan. Unlike that band though, who lean on the heavier side of the progressive spectrum, Bodhi is a wonderfully sweet jaunt via the realms of nu-prog. Ever since originally writing about the album, I’ve become somewhat obsessed with it; I just can’t get enough of the great tones and ideas on it. Well, that makes it my absolute pleasure to be premiering the full thing right now, only a few short days before its August 25th release! Head on down below for sweet vibes, great guitar works and sweet, sweet leads.

The project also manages to create interesting “spaces” for the guitar to live in, contextualizing the flair and expressiveness of its sound.

A word with so many meanings that using it is akin to farting during a job interview or calling your significant other the wrong name. Progressive. Yes, The Room Colored Charlatan are a progressive deathcore band. Or are they? Over the course of the last few years and releases, the band have pushed square riffs into isometric structures – somehow coming away with something pretty cool each time. The Veil That Conceals is the next part of this band’s journey and it definitely goes somewhere. It’s just unclear what the scheduled destination was/is.

Hey, Listen To The Antikythera Mechanism!

With bands like The Contortionist moving on to lighter territory, and groups like Substructure no longer around, the pickings are slim for anyone who is looking for some decent “space core” in the present day. The Room Colored Charlatan’s new album contributed significantly towards filling this void, but if you’re…

The Room Colored Charlatan – Primitives

Nowadays, thanks in no small part to the Internet, distance cannot stop the spread and progression of genres within metal. Today it is more often found that specific record labels come with their own pre requisite sub genre — Deathwish is rife with Entombedcore bands while Sumeriancore has it’s own last.fm…
