Tales from Bandcamp: The Morningstar E.P. by The Apache Revolver
Posted by RiffRaff
This one caught my attention by claiming to be a mix of surf rock and black metal, and a combo like that you don’t not jump on the opportunity to see if it’s something revolutionary or an absolute train wreck. To my disappointment a combo of Dick Dale and Emperor didn’t come to fruition (with the exception of a minute at the end of the record). What I consider surf rock, really wasn’t strongly present in the 4 songs. However, what I did here was a really interesting proggy atmospheric black metal record with a sunny, nautical feel. Like a combo of Rush, BtBaM, and Deafheaven.
Another thing that really caught me about the record is the positivity of the lyrical content, which fits the ‘happy’ black metal it coincides with. Songs about loving life, beauty, etc. It’s always nice when there is a break from the norm and The Apache Revolver pull it off quite well. This being the bands first substantial offering, it’s very well done and the potential these guys have is astounding. I am quite interested to see what they can do with a full length. Anyhoo, give The Morningstar E.P. a listen and let us know what you think. As always, if you like what you here, grab yourself a copy of the album and force your metal minded friends to listen to it. Enjoy!!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
Thanks to the great FB Page Hipster Black Metal for turning me onto this one (as well as many other cool records).
