From the filthy and soaked ashes of BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS arise BELLROPE, a band who dub themselves as the total absence of tonal sanity. Their actions are described as ‘Amp hauling. Amp abusing’.
BELLROPE drive forth this attitude with ‘You Must Relax’ – BELLROPE’s first album, spanning 5 songs over four sides of a double record. Starting off with a somewhat massage of your eardrums to make you ready for the following, like some good orange habanero slices stimulate the synapses of your tongue to make the main dishes taste so much more intense. This main dish will be served in the tonal equivalent of the track ‘Old Overholt’ paying tribute to the iconic rye whiskey which is a regular acolyte in the BELLROPE touring van. The call-out ‘You Must Relax’ is a verbatim order, before ‘TD 200’ marks another climax, carried by dueling vocals by Arne Heesch and Yvonnne Ducksworth of the mighty TREEDEON. ‘CBD/ Hereinunder’ wraps it up with long repetitive trance-inducing riffage that you just plainly don’t want to end. Ever.
