Personnel: Bruce Lamont (vocals); Tony Lazzara, Eric Chaleff (guitars); Nandini Khaund (keyboards); Colin DeKuiper (electric bass); Cayce Key (drums). Audio Mixers: Tony Lazzara; Sanford Parker. Chicago's Bloodiest issued Descent in 2010, a six-track, album-length debut. It showcased a band deeply attracted to heavy, dark, atmospheric music created by trance-inducing riffs (made by three guitars), bass, piano, electronic keyboards, and massive drums, all surrounding Bruce Lamont's drone-laden vocals. It drew comparisons to records by Neurosis, Tool, and more. Five years on, Bloodiest (whose members have been culled from Sterling, Yakuza, Atombombpocketknife, 90 Day Men, Wrekmeister Harmonies, and more) issue a self-titled sophomore recording that few saw coming. They have pared down to a sextet with Nandini Khaund the lone keyboard player and new bassist Colin DeKuiper (ex-Russian Circles). While the post-metal lineage remains present on this Sanford Parker-produced set, Bloodiest are far more experimental in their approach to composition, sonic texture, and attack. This album would be vanguard metal if it didn't contain so many undeniable grooves. Despite abrupt, dramatic shifts in these eight songs, the circular repetition that brought listeners to Descent is still the bedrock of Bloodiest's m.o. First single He Is Disease opens with roaring six- and four-string drones, thudding snare and kick drums, and explosive cymbals. DeKuiper's low-tuned vamp goes head to head with Tony Lazzara and Eric Chaleff's churning guitar riffs and Khaund's blasted keyboard washes. They all but bury Lamont's vocals under their collective weight. Eventually, the guitars start chugging, increasing the tempo. By contrast, Cayce Key's drumming moves toward a slower 4/4, creating a dark, paranoid groove. Sonically, there is as much of Swans' knuckle-dragging plod in this mix as there is Neurosis' throb and burn. By contrast, The Widow, played in waltz time, is driven by a slow, agitate
Conned Again, Watson!
For the better part of a century, attempts to explain what was really going on in the quantum world seemed doomed to failure. But recent technological advances have made the question both practical and urgent. A brilliantly imaginative group of physicists at Oxford University have risen to the challenge. This is their story. At long last, there is a sensible way to think about quantum mechanics. The new view abolishes the need to believe in randomness, long-range spooky forces, or conscious observers with mysterious powers to collapse cats into a state of life or death. But the new understanding comes at a price: we must accept that we live in a multiverse wherein countless versions of reality unfold side-by-side. The philosophical and personal consequences of this are awe-inspiring....
