Savage Aural Hotbed

Review of the album, "Pressure of Silence" in Baby Sue Review #24

Savage Aural Hotbed - Pressure of Silence

YEAH! You'd think with the incredible amount of stuff musicians have at their fingertips these days that there'd be TONS of original sounding groups, wouldn't you? WRONG. Occasionally a group comes along that really does have its own sound, however, an d Savage Aural Hotbed is one of them. Don't let the name fool you, Savage Aural Hotbed is NOT a rap band. Instead, these folks ae true experimenters... using found objects (among other things) to create a peculiar style of music that I find most intrig uing. It's not ambient, it's not techno, it's not alternative rock... it's something else that I really can't describe. The band's music is based mainly on percussion, which gives it a somewhat tribal feel at times. I don't know how else to describe this, but I'd highly recommend it. It sure made me sit up and take notice... (Rating: 5)
