Tone picture
Tone biography
TONE is a collective from Washington DC with members of GOVERNMENT ISSUES and UNREST and others. Their music revolves around five-six guitar players, a drummer and a bass player. In their 2000 release, "Structure", They used orchestral instrumentations along with their full on guitar attack and in their recent releases they added another drummer into the band.

Their sound is similar to that of Glenn BRANCA and Rhys CHATHAM and their guitar ensembles. They're more energetic in their sound than most bands from the genre. Their sound has evolved through the years. In their later albums TONE where a more refined sound echoing MONO, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY and others, but with "Solidarity" they use cacophony more than their later albums. With this approach instead of making their music more complex, they make it more emotional and still be very accessible.

Highly recommended for fans of post-rock, post-metal.

Review by OpethGuitarist
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Confidence and Progress.

Tone is a good post-rock band that has many dynamics similar to that of Explosions in the Sky. Solidarity is an album that shows much promise at the beginning. Indeed, the first parts of the album are much better than as we close towards the end. We start with the best song of the album, which builds with such a momentum that you wish it would keep going at the end for another 2 or 3 minutes.

The amount of guitars incorporated into a majority of the songs enhances the magnitude of the shape shifting from each developing riff of many of the songs. This, I would imagine, would allow for a very surreal live experience that could not be captured by the use of just one or two guitar players. Despite the many connections and associations the band may have with others of the genre, I think, at least on this album, they are a bit heavier, and due to their high number of guitarists (rather than multiple instruments as in a majority of GYBE) they bring a different approach to the post-rock movement, as I would call it, than their peers do.

Solidarity is a wonderful little album if you have the patience to let it grow on you. By no means is it a staple of the genre or is it anything outrageously creative. It is, essentially, just some quality post-rock with perhaps more of an edge to it and less "artsy" than the champion of the genre. Regardless, a fine effort by this band.
