Antarctic biography
Energetic post-rock quartet from Jacksonville, Florida. Play melodic heavy post-rock, in some moments similar to post metal. Twice guitar sound, competent drumming, different songs are this young band's strong sides. Even if slightly influenced by Nordic European post-rock bands , this could be found in melody and atmosphere department mostly. By their instrumentation and drive, they are typical American band with high energy and rocking sound. Their strong debut album is released on Hello Sir Records label in 2009.

Band members:

Chris Jackson: guitar
Tyler Miller: drums

Review by snobb

3 stars Strong debut of American post-rock band. Even being full instrumental work, album is different enough to be listened without the risk to be bored.

"Arrowhead Wounds" is guitar driven rock song with almost metal energetic. "Your Ships Are Googlin' Pretty Hard" is strongly influenced by melodic brit-pop, but is heavy and rocks!"Bergen" is most atmospheric composition with some Nordic post-rock sound.

"Hey Kids" is short, opened by some sound effects, but very soon become guitar driven bridge to "Paseo la Salamandria" - maybe most memorable album composition. Lighter, with interesting drumming, and some rhythm breaks.

For sure, still debut, not mature work, the album contains some interesting music. Could become a good start for the band.

Thanks to snobb for the artist addition.
