At The Soundawn “Shifting” (2010 -Lifeforce Records-)
“Shifting” (March 2010, Lifeforce Records) is a MASTERPIECE album at all, nothing less, and much much more. This time At The Soundawn, post metal experimental noise core from Modena, Italy, have brought something unexpected, thinking about how much professional this album sound. It is ferocious, it is calm, it is rough, it is dirt, it is: At The Soundawn, each word, each feeling, each status, converted in music, through notes, chords, ballads, words, drums. You’re welcome at At The Soundawn galaxy.
The “usual” sound, from fist to last song, is about the best period of Isis, Mogwai, the early Thrice and Tool, based on a dark/melancholic groove, creating this symphonies out.
“Shifting” is a concise and robust statement of intent, At The Soundawn are masters of this kind of music all over Europe, defining values in music. This potential of sound puts them up everything, so far, so high, that they’re lost in the clouds.
The awesome execution fits perfect with the recording and the supreme technique, spreading also a sense of catharsis and spirit’s purification. Yeah, that’s enough, eheh, but this album is a real trip…check it out…you’ll get addicted at once.
BUY OR DIE, excellent stuff, as always,
for At The Soundawn.

At The Soundawn “Shifting” (2010 -Lifeforce Records-)
“Shifting” (Marzo 2010, Lifeforce Records) è un Capolavoro, niente di meno e tantissimo di più. Questa volta i modenesi post metal sperimental noise core At The Soundawn rilasciano qualche cosa di veramente inaspettato, fuori dai ranghi e da qualsiasi regola. La professionalità straborda e i livelli sono altissimi. Il disco è calmo, veloce, sporco, rude, feroce, apocalittico: in perfetto stile At The Soundawn, traspirando sentimenti, emozioni e status in musica, convertiti in note, accordi, cambi, contrattempi, ballate, percussioni, parole. Benvenuti nella galassia At The Soundawn, attorno alla quale girano come satelliti i migliori Isis, i primi Thrice, Mogwai e Tool. “Shifting” è un concentrato coinciso e robusto di intenti che diventano azione.
La base “dark/”malinconica” e il senso di “catarsi” abbastanza ricorrenti, creano sinfonie uniche, divenendo conseguentemente “trademarks” della band stessa. Esecuzione perfetta, registrazione celestiale, tecnica suprema: un “trip” senza via d’uscita, provare per credere.
Dopo il primo ascolto non riuscirete a stare senza “Shifting”, ve lo assicuro! BUY OR DIE!!!
