Posted in experimental,mathcore,noisecore by deek on March 8, 2010


Daughters is an intense noisecore band formed in Providence, Rhode Island in 2001, following the demise of another Providence-based noisecore band, As the Sun Sets. Their music is fast and experimental. Their drums commonly feature blast beats, their guitars a blur of high pitched squeals and fast fretting. With the release of Hell Songs, Daughters became more of a noise/experimental band, with vocals more reminiscent of The Jesus Lizard’s David Yow than traditional hardcore or metalcore vocalizing, and toured with bands like The Locust, Russian Circles, Young Widows, and The Chinese Stars.

The Arusha Accord – Nightmares of the Ocean (EP) [2008]

Nearly four years ago, at the beginning of 2005, the six-headed monster now known as The Arusha Accord began work on a musical project. Despite having no solid blueprint, the band drew its initial inspiration from the likes of Sikth, Dillinger Escape Plan and Tool, in particular the chaotic variations, speed and complex time signatures that each had to offer respectively. Two years later, in the November of 2007, their project came of age and broke out into the UK’s flourishing metal scene. In doing so, the band caused a stir worthy of even the most highly rated foreign import. Rising (amazing) UK independent label, Basick Records, home to fellow UK metallers Fell Silent, were suitably impressed and immediately offered the band a deal. A few months later and the ‘Nightmares Of The Ocean’ EP was recorded with John Mitchell (Funeral For A Friend, Enter Shikari) at Outhouse Studios in the band’s hometown of Reading. As bassist, Luke Williams explains: “Nightmares Of The Ocean symbolizes the end of a huge musical journey for us. It gives us closure on an intense and turbulent three-year project, during which time we’ve easily written an albums worth of material without ever really being satisfied with what was being created. So, we’ve chopped, changed, linked and sculpted everything into just these five tracks … and we couldn’t be happier with the result.”
