Gnod & Hey Colossus @ Corsica Studios

Hey Colossus
Brutal. Black. Gold 


Sonic expectations were overturned at the joint gig of underground masters of visceral noise Gnod & Hey Colossus at Elephant & Castle's Corsica Studios.

Hey Colossus came first to attack with varied, layered noisescapes that often faded into slow-building riffs, heavy in psychedelic irony - the wandering projections at the back only enhanced this heady fusion. Their new album Black & Gold is a mighty piece of work on more than one level - smart, sexy, mature without sacrificing an inch of their menacing credentials.

Having a tough act to follow, Gnod pretty much remained on a flat heavy rock plane throughout their set. Despite their interesting dynamics, the uniform whole came to stark contrast with Hey Colossus's unpredictable rides. Not bad by any means, just rather unfortunate....

Spot-on: Milhoes de Festa 2015 put together a tell-all video set  to the title track from Black & Gold
