Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster biography
TACOMA NARROWS BRIDGE DISASTER hail from London, the meeting of five minds who share a love for atmospheric and melodic art-metal. The band was formed in 2008 with Drew VERNON and Adam PAUL on guitars Tom GRANICA on bass, Alex RAINBOW on drums and Dylan FOUCHER on vocals and synths. Bringing together elements of post-rock and progressive metal, as well as diverse influences from glitch to stoner rock, the collective achieved a unique and spellbinding sound. Moments of reflective serenity and complex spiraling soundscapes mix with massive riffs and crushing climaxes.

In 2009 the band recorded their first album, the all instrumental "Collapse", favoring a DIY approach as to keep the sound as close to its original intention as possible. In 2012 they followed up with the highly acclaimed second album titled "Exegesis". TACOMA NARROWS BRIDGE DISASTER will appeal to a large group of progressive music fans, as it combines elements of bands such as ISIS, TOOL, RIVERSIDE, PELICAN and EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY.

4 stars Here we go, a new TNBD album is waiting to be detected, from a band equipped with a curious name - once heard or read, you'll never forget. Okay, this also might matter due to the prolific productions they are delivering moreover. Although I'm not focussed on heavily crashing guitars basically, this album makes it over again. The band has its origin in the Post Metal department most notably, quite reminiscent to Tool in some way, predominantly when it comes to the presence of the band's profound rhythm section around Tom Granica and Alex Rainbow.

Vocals hardly ever take effect. Hence the dual guitar effort makes the particular outcome here more or less. Both instruments do not appear in a primitive way at all, not that wild and brachial as it is concerning some death metal stuff for example. No, other attributes like accentuated, sensitive, empathic are ruling. Hereby Drew Vernon and Adam Paul are consequently shuffling space rock and post metal impressions, with the focus on the latter quite naturally. The opener Oko or the title track are proving this at best.

On a side note, sometimes I'm even inclined to hear three or more guitars. That will guarantee a lush sound at least, based on nine songs provided with a rather hypnotic and gripping flow in general. For one or two this may come a bit single-tracked over the course of more than 60 minutes, for me definitely not! So 'Wires / Dream \ Wires' convinces in a similar way the ABSTRAKT debut 'Limbosis' has done. The TNBD quartet offer an entertaining cross genre production here, which deserves attention by all means.

4 stars And the walls will come down ...

They are hailing from London, named after a bridge collapse which took place in the USA. However, to start off with, this album comes far away from a disaster definitely. The band is offering eight highly interesting, mostly instrumental songs on 'Exegesis'. While mixing post rock, psychedelic and prog metal appeal in some way, the songs are alternating between forceful conditions and hypnotically relaxed moments. So this is given in the vein of Tool, Isis, Portal - but also provided with the sensitive compositional impact of the band Grails as for my impression. Prog fans who like those bands will find a new home here for sure.

It's really hard to underline a special track. The title song definitely belongs to the very dynamic expeditions featuring aggressive attempts, a tricky one where drummer Alex Rainbow and bassist Tom Granica come out of hiding especially. Valis is more of a stately flow, mysteriously repetitive, a captivating exemplar. When Dylan Foulcher's voice is brought into action it sometimes reminds me of Eddie Vedder or Michael Stipe, yeah really! Black Iron Prison constitutes the point of culmination if you ask me, it's the aggressive kick-off, the tremendous groove in between, as well as the spacey ambience towards the end alongside a catchy refrain.

'Exegesis' is the second TACOMA NARROWS BRIDGE DISASTER album - an exceptional one, a balancing act consisting of fervour and melancholy. Key element is the dual guitar appearance by Drew Vernon and Adam Paul, soaring, echoing, riffing, crashing - the more I listen the more I like this ... kinda fascinating, my most played album in recent times - a wonderful affair overall, congrats TNBD - 4.5 stars.

Thanks to Rune2000 for the artist addition.
