NC04: Planks - The Darkest Of Grays CS

released on 04/15/2011


The 2nd full length, entitled »The Darkest Of Grays« features 12 songs that are pretty much different from their 1st self-titled record. The band focused more on the dynamic aspect in their music instead of sheer brutality. The songs are all full of different nuances, tempi changes and have an undeniable sense of melody. Stylewise don't expect pop music here, even though there are clearly some structures of a classic (80's dark-wave) hints to be found. If you feel the urge to describe the whole thing, you could imagine a blending of Breach's »Kollapse« with Mastodon's »Leviathan« mixed with Isis »Oceanic«, »Closer« by Joy Division and some classic Norwegian black metal such as Darkthrone's »Transilvanian Hunger«. It all sounds rather unique and contemporary. If you enjoy bands such as the ones mentioned before this record might be your cup of black coffee.
