Our Ceasing Voice (A)
Two great post-rock bands with strong ambients, powerful moods and melancholic bits take you onto a great voyage.
The band was formed by four architect students in 2005. There were several changes in the lineup such as an expansion to six members. Their music differs from the usual by the dominant role of the keyboard and the cello. This and the vocals in Hungarian highlight them in the post-rock scene. Floating themes and dashing bursts are both peculiar.
2008's Csend Utca EP represented a direction more likely towards popular alternative rock.
The turning point was the White Noise single in 2009, their first step on a new path that is being followed since then with continuously growing success.
The debut album entitled ’Mit Nekem’ came out on the 13th of November 2009 with support won on the PANKKK tendering organized by the Hungarian Ministry of National Resources. Studio recording and mastering took place at Altrecords and Bakery studios. The album is free to download from the band’s website.
During and after the recording several gigs were held in Hungary and in Austria. In 2010 the band played in Vienna twice accompanying the Austrian Our Ceasing Voice and the French Bye Horus.
In Hungary they played with Anneke van Giersbergen from Netherlands, Jeniferever from Sweden, Zeni Geva from Japan, Constants from the US, Heirs from Australia, Our Ceasing Voice, Bye Horus and to list some Hungarians: Turbo, marionette ID and pozvakowski.
Our Ceasing Voice (A)
Gradually the lights of the city come to new life, while the random flickering of the large neon sign three blocks away lasts and glances are lost in the distance. The sun slowly descends behind the silhouettes of the skyscrapers, taken over from the approaching night. The orange haze on the horizon is reflected in the windshields of the passing cars, raising the dust, which has been accumulated on the street. Here, between loneliness and hope, stories, which are able to change lives and guide our being exist. Soaking with melancholia Our Ceasing Voice tells these stories with their mix of hypnotic ambient and epic post-rock outburst and help the listener to catch the memories of long forgotten times, in order to save them from transience. Amidst the Tyrolean Alps the band was founded in 2006 already, but only with their debut 'steadied stars in the morphium sky EP' they drafted a journey through the mystery of gloom. Based on the upcoming novel by Sebastian Obermeir, Our Ceasing Voice's new 2011 album 'when the headline hit home' pursues this concept, while the development to a darker, more dynamic sound is clearly noticeable. Beautiful and saddening at the same time, the Austrians draw attention to fragility, passionately making one's flesh creep and thereby portraying a dramatic story full of yearning and desperation. How it will end, however, lies only in your hands.
