Eternal Tapestry / Hey Colossus
Corsica Studios, London

Article written by Michael H - Apr 23, 2013

eternal_tapestry_1_1.jpg
In the claustrophobic confines of Elephant & Castle’s Corsica Studios, Hey Colossus were an un-ignorable sonic assault. Aggressively carnivorous, they ripped great gory chunks out of the ears of those present. A line-up featuring no less than 3 guitarists, a rhythm section so heavy they may as well have been sculpted from a mountain, and a vocalist seemingly intent on channelling a psychic unease of almost physical tangibility, was obviously never going to be a breezy proposition, but the actual performance was bruising in its savage intensity. The band tore out metal of a most black and sludgy hue, drenched in feedback, noise and mental turbulence. The triple guitarists ground out slow violent riffs over menacingly loping bass and drums, as the vocalist steadily lost his mind over the duration of the set, convulsing and stretching his neck as he screamed incomprehensible lyrics in a painfully disturbed manner, like someone waking up in a locked underwater box full of nightmares. Do anything to catch this band before they burn out or get themselves hospitalised.

Eternal Tapestry played a more sedate, if no less fried, set; using synth, guitars and a lithe rhythm section that stepped in and out of the gloopy melting-walls of drone and lengthy solos; they played long pieces of kosmiche-tinged wide eyed psych rock. Initial hums and rumbles pulsed and built a platform for the guitar solos to soar from, the drums and bass rolling out lengthy roads of motoric. The songs ran and melted into one another in a colourful and engaging jumble of sound.
