Santa Sangre – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass” (2014)

ENG: I’m constantly moved by the cover for “Crickets Were The Compass”. A cartoon of a dog staring wistfully into the distance, waiting for his master, who’ll probably never come – there is something both touching and depressing in this picture. The background is kept in gray tones presenting an apocalyptic scenery, and this poor […]

Side-line Magazine – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass” (2014)

Genre/Influences: Dark-ambient, apocalyptic soundscape.

Content: If Chvad SB doesn’t directly ring a bell; some bands this American artist has been involved in have become quite renowned and established bands. Controlled Bleeding even belongs to the so-called pioneers and references in industrial/experimental music, but Chvad SB got also involved in The Qualia (signed on WTII Records), […]

a decouvrir absolument – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass”

Ils l’ont fait, oui Charles toi qui frappait du poing contre le sable face à une statue de la liberté enfoncée dans le sable, la mer commençant son long office de destruction par l’érosion.

Zware Metalen – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass” (2014)

Chvad SB maakt al dik twintig jaar muziek/geluid voor films. Niet dat het op een soundtrack terechtkomt, daarvoor is het meestal te abstract, te ongemakkelijk, te discordant & discomforting zoals velen het noemen. Deze keer is er alsnog een pak geluid geregistreerd en als Crickets Were the Compass op de markt gebracht.

De veelheid aan […]

Gonzo Circus – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass” (2014)

Verwijmeren debuteert ( met een plaat die nauw verwant klinkt met zijn familienaam. Levend en ademend in Delft en afgestudeerd fysicus reist hij reeds jarenlang met het openbaar vervoer, meestal voor lange afstanden en dus voor een langere tijdsduur. Dan kijkt een mens door het raam en gaat aan het nadenken, aan het mijmeren en […]

Lords of Metal – Chvad SB “Crickets Were the Compass” (2014)

It might be the case that Chvad SB was on the radar of the Creative Ellipse record label, but fact remain that this innovative and progressive one man project has extremely little to do with metal in general. When I say Things Outside The Skin, Tongue Muzzle, The Qualia and the pioneers of this genre […]
