When a band seamlessly genre hops as much as King Gizzard does, it’s hard for one to categorize them. This is part of their allure. Since their formation seven years ago, they’ve dabbled in Garage Punk, Baroque Pop, Bossa Nova, Raga Rock, and of course Psychedelic Rock. Flying Microtonal Banana, their ninth and latest release, sees the prolific Melbourne natives throwing us yet another surprise, this time coming in the form of alternate tunings: microtonal tunings to be exact, which is essentially taking the regular twelve notes per octave and doubling it to 24. It is an unusual concept in rock music and Western music in general, but one that is frequently used in India and the Middle East. The outcome of this tuning you ask? It is nine tracks of psychedelic quirkiness. http://spillmagazine.com/spill-album-review-king-gizzard-lizard-wizard-flying-microtonal-banana/

This song is written from the perspective of The Devil. He tempts people with sin and waits as they die and enter hell, which is where they "jump in the fire." One of the earliest Metallica songs, this was the second single they released, after "Whiplash." Dave Mustaine, who left the band in 1983, helped write the song, earning one of his four composer credits in Metallica. The song was included on Metallica's debut album, Kill 'Em All, and reflects the band's New Wave influences; drummer Lars Ulrich was quoted as saying that the song was inspired by Iron Maiden, whose hit "Run To The Hills" had been the most popular song on the radio at the time. Lars claimed that "Jump in the Fire" was Metallica's response to "Run to the Hills," and was intended to be their breakthrough single.

"The Fool" is a collection of songs that I have been working on for the past three years. In the bitter aftermath of music projects that never worked out during a transition period in my life , I questioned my motives behind making music. The title "The Fool" is the embodiment of what me and some of my friends feel towards the futility of writing music if you have decided not to dedicate your life to it. Is it just a remnant of our teenage selves? Again, only a fool would waste his time answering this question hence I decided to upload these songs.

Spectral Ascent is much more than something to bob your head to pleasantly, so if you’re looking for something that has many facets and that you can really sink your mental teeth into, this one’s for you. Concurrent to the occultic themes on the album, there is a clear element for anyone really to grab onto; Spectral Ascent has multiple layers. On the album’s eighth track, Kabbalah’s singer puts the listener in the position of the character that was introduced in the first track and has been maintained, in various capacities, throughout the album, singing, “You keep searching for an answer; You’ve watched the darkness fall; And you heed its siren call; That shadow falls upon you.” The album ends on a slightly more upbeat note musically speaking than it opened up with. The production sounds at times as though it is from decades ago, when the musical influences that converge in Spectral Ascent began to make their mark in the modern era. Although it could thereby feel antiquated, it works well. http://newnoisemagazine.com/review-kabbalah-spectral-ascent/#
