IIVII

These soundtracks to the exploration of the unknown caress the unfathomable depths of space and time through sound with a haunting, alien dread countering an unshakable sense of reverence.” – About.com

Colony is the the debut full-length from IIVII, the enigmatic intergalactic solo project spearheaded by visual artist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, Josh Graham. Released late this past Summer, with IIVII Graham expands upon his sonic body of work traversing new electronic territory that focuses on the subtle orchestration and manipulation of dense comic-styled atmospheres, rather than the bombastic approach found in his primary band, A Storm Of Light.

A STORM OF LIGHT

Rock-A-Rolla magazine’s review of Nations to Flames states: “In upping the aggression, intensity and songwriting ability, they are once again overshadowing what’s gone before and giving new reasons to appreciate a band that are already becoming one of the most crucial heavy acts around.”[2]

 


Josh Graham inaugurated A Storm of Light in 2007, shortly before exiting the band he helped found, Red Sparowes. Having also spent the entirety of that decade moonlighting as a visual artist for erstwhile post-metal kingpins Neurosis.

Nations to Flames is the strongest Storm album to date (post-metal kvltists feel free to disagree) and ought to earn Graham & co. that hard won crossover buzz that they’ve been on the cliffhanger precipice of for the past few years. There is considerable potential here for alienation of existing fans, but new ones will inevitably be won over, and for the veteran fans that remain the substantial broadening of A Storm of Light‘s artistic palette can only further cement their unflagging loyalty.

BATTLE OF MICE

Battle of Mice was a post-metal supergroup consisting of Julie Christmas (Made Out of Babies), Josh Graham (ex-Neurosis, ex-Red SparowesA Storm of Light), Joel Hamilton (Book of Knots), Tony Maimone (Book of Knots, Pere Ubu), and Joe Tomino (FugeesDub TrioPeeping Tom).

The band was formed when vocalist Julie Christmas and guitarist/keyboardist Josh Graham met in Austin, Texas while touring with their respective bands in 2005.

The album, which was released under Neurot Recordings, contains seven tracks heavily influenced by the metalpost-rock and noise rock roots from which the group was derived.

RED SPAROWES

Epic without bombast, heavy without a single barre-chord riff and eviscerating without any clearly audible vocals. The chiming, spindly layers of effect-laden guitars and the swinging, entrancing drums on its Neurot Recordings debut At the Soundless Dawn create textures reminiscent of Goblin, Tones on Tail, Godspeed You Black Emperor and early Sonic Youth. Its attack is syrupy and serpentine; subtle but frighteningly deliberate.

The band formed in 2003 by guitarist Clifford Meyer (also of Isis), bassist/pedal steel player Greg Burns (ex-Halifax Pier), guitarist Josh Graham, bassist/guitarist Jeff Caxide (Isis) and drummer Dana Berkowitz. Caxide and Berkowitz relocated in 2004, leaving the band. Josh Graham left the band in 2007 to pursue other musical endeavors seen above.
