Eleanora – EP

Consouling Sounds

Eleanora – EPTwo tracks; fifteen minutes of fearsome post-hardcore grunt, groan, riff and thrash from Eleanora splashes out of the speakers as if the very devil was grinding out the best tunes behind them, goading the band into producing yet more screamed crescendos.

Tight as the screws which surely must be holding down the drummer’s kit in case it should get beaten off the stage, “Mammon” shifts gears and swerves with the erratic control of a rally driver careering headlong into an ice-storm while their co-pilot yells out a constant stream of incoherent rage at the all-encompassing elements rather than anything resembling useful directions.

“Amenable” starts off in just that fashion, a pleasant churn of guitar soon joined by a frying-pan bass sprawl until the doomy whole coalesces into a dirgesome trudge through ponderous drum spasms and the harsh grindcore-style vocalisations. While not quite as caught up in the rush as the opener, it provides Eleanora with a good way to close their debut EP in a slow-burning welter of heaviosity and emotive outpourings.
