Finally, a post, and fittingly on this day of resurrection. You'll get no Christ from me though. This season so far hasn't encouraged me to want to get the blog back together much (hence the month-long delay in getting this one up) or doing anything involving staring at a monitor. But I 'm hoping some of the spring giddiness has been expelled and things will change. We'll see. What we have today is a band I probably would have overlooked if it weren't for a keen-eared commenter. All he (she?) really had to say was it's Elenor's new band (from To What End?) and I was in pursuit. Peacebastard is a fairly new band based in Germany who just put out their third release (a split with Dishonorable Discharge). For free today are the band's first two EPs, which stay with the theme of resurrection but without the rehash. Brought back are the fury and idealism of the early days of Profane Existence and Flat Earth, drawing gracefully from so many bands of those two rosters that it's futile to list. I will say that Elenor's vocals this time around are more guttural and abrasive in the manner early Ebola and Unhinged-- a 10 megaton warhead on an already deadly rocket.
"Dear bicycle, I shall not call you bike, you were green, like so many of your generation, I don't know why. It is a pleasure to meet it again. To describe it at length would be a pleasure. It had a little red horn instead of the bell fashionable in your days. To blow this horn was a real pleasure, almost a vice... What a rest to speak of bicycles and horns."
