Last weekend I went to a small one day festival with my friends from Dirty Crows as I promised them to do their merch booth. I was really looking forward to this gig because I finally had the opportunity to see one special band and to run across a close friend of mine to whom I haven’t spoken to for a long time and in fact is playing in this combo. I am talking about The Majestic Unicorns From Hell. In fact I am not going to write anything about the other bands as this review’s only purpose is doing some publicity for these guys’ amazing music.
Talking about their music I think that the most positive part is its unpredictability, something which has became really rare in music nowadays. The riffs change from fast punkish and metal shreddings to a sludgy, doomy stoner steamroller. As the guys are clearly inspired by metal and different sub-genres, I was positively surprised that there wasn’t any double-bass hammering throughout all the songs which makes the band really sympatico and not less heavier. The drums’ richness live sound perfectly suits the rest of the music. It also would be cool to hear the different songs with a vocalist but I imagine that this is really hard, it is like searching for the Holy Grail. On the one side the vocals have to embrace the weird and hypnotizing sound on the other side they have to stand alone and be unique in order to do justice to the rest. So, take your time and focus on the music!
To conclude I really hope that The Majestic Unicorns From Hell will perform more often in the future and if you ever get the chance to experience them live just check them out, you won’t regret it, promised. I posted their Soundcloud thing in here but I have to say that the music is much more powerful and varied when you experience them live! Looking forward to hearing more from you guys! Also check ‘em out on Facebook.
