Irepress

What's up, guys.

First of all, sorry for being late and waiting until today to write my first review. It was a very weird week traveling here and there in some of the weirdest places I ever was, and it's time to get back to my obligations.

Today I'm going to talk about Irepress (pronounced like in "Irepress-ible").

The band, this fantastic band with just two albums released did something that it's difficult when you're writing tunes within the supersaturated post-metal scene: having your own style.

As it happened with Isis, the quality of their releases goes in crescendo -but maybe this is a hasky appreciation considering their small discography-, from just an interesting group to something really cool and original. Their songs are long (about seven minutes like most songs in this genre) and have an experimental touch that reflects their desperate quest for perfection.

I'll have to admit, it's hard to describe Irepress with words. It's even hard to coceive them. The best way to understand this group is by listening the products of their awesomeness. Samus -from their first album Samus Octology- is maybe the most emblematic of all their tracks:


In their second album -Sol Eye Sea I- they played with more complex structures marking a huge difference with the rest of bands of the scene. Their first attempt of introducing lyrics -which, in their opinion, it's something they always wanted but they simply couldn't because it's hard to find something that fits what they're doing- results in a notable success like is proven in my favourite track, Barrageo:


We're looking forward for their next releases. What more to say, I'm sure they'll give a lot to talk about, hope they release something soon!
