Sounds | Massface - Aftermath


Wat een intro! De trage, duistere opbouw gedurende de eerste minuut en zestien seconden zit er boenk op waardoor de overgang naar het riff- en groovewerk helemaal binnenkomt. In contrast staan dan de meer 'emo' vocals waar je eigenlijk een bak meer aggressie zou verwachten. Yep, de mannen uit Sint-Petersburg weten hoe je de spanning opbouwt. Of die dan een héél nummer aangehouden wordt, laat ik wat in het midden. Dat hangt wat van het moment en de persoonlijke smaak af. Inequable is reeds verschenen, maar ik ga dit weekend toch eens goed luisteren. Benieuwd of een full album van deze band mij ook kan boeien.


Inequable verscheen op 16 september in eigen beheer.

Massface is an alternative metal/progressive rock band formed in Saint Petersburg, Russia, in 2013.

From 2013 to 2020, the band released a self-titled studio album and numerous singles accompanied with music videos, including the hit singles "Black Water" (the music video reached 1.5 million views on YouTube) and "Remember" (1 million views).

In 2018, Massface won Emergenza Festival Russia and played numerous shows in Russia, Belarus, and ultimately at Taubertal Festival in Germany, got signed by Sliptrick records and re-released the debut album on the label.

In 2020, Massface changed their vocalist and joined Aleksandr Grigorev, with whom began the work on "Inequable".

"Inequable" means ever-changing, unequal, just like the shifting sound shapes of every song on this album - you can't be ready for the next part of the next song until you get to hear it.

"Inequable" shows MASSFACE's growth as a band. They picked up where they left off three years ago with proggy single "Blank" and continued experimenting with different rhythms, and elements of different genres we never tried before, from punk rock to metalcore and progressive metal - even used acoustic guitars this time! And the new vocalist Alexander took the lyrical and vocal game to another level and helped produce this really mature progressive rock/metal record which MASSFACE have all the rights to be really proud of. Current MASSFACE lineup: Vocals - Aleksandr Grigorev Guitars - Ivan Romanchuk Guitars - Aleksandr Tarabrin Bass Guitar - Aleksey Novikov Keyboards - Semyon Martsinkevich Drums - Denis Shulika
