Instrumental duo Onset release 25 minute 2 song EP [Singapore]. This is BANANAS.
“One of Singapore’s newest upstarts comes in the form of an instrumental Doom duo ӨПƧΣƬ with the group’s upcoming EP entitled “Unstructured Dissemination”, to be released on CD version under Japanese seminal Doom label Weird Truth Productions sometime in the Fall of 2018.
Formed in late 2016, to simply pigeonhole ӨПƧΣƬ as a Doom band would just be scratching the surface; the influences brought forward to the band are extremely diverse, with an almost no-holds-barred attitude and seeping in emotive passages surging into Post-Rock territory while still staying remotely under the radar of the Doom genre itself. The tempo, the vibe, the feeling of melancholy and dread.
The “Unstructured Dissemination” EP showcases two imposing tracks clocking at over 25 minutes in length, as well as an undaunting attempt to record them in a completely live and rehearsal-like environment. Another very integral part of the ӨПƧΣƬ sound comes from the collaborative effort of Synthwave artist Microchip Terror, who provided a very cinematic approach amongst the wash of fuzzed-out guitars and wall of drums, thus giving the entire EP an incredible spectrum of soundscape. Also featuring Mirai Kawashima from Sigh on additional keys / synth on both the intro and outro tracks.”
