Man, you really are doing a thorough-as-hell job of promoting this record...

Haha. Yeah it's good to get the word out about the record and label that folks may not otherwise be aware of.

Review from HELLBOUND.CA (December, 2011):

Hotel Wrecking City Traders & Gary Arce 12” LP

A two-song, 12” EP with ten minutes of music on each side, pairing two-man Aussie noise rockers Hotel Wrecking City Traders with Yawning Man/Brant Bjork riffmeister Gary Arce—this has potential, indeed.

A Side “Coventina’s Cascade” starts off in mellow psych territory, some lush, rolling riffs above a hard-hitting backbeat. The percussive pace picks up, though there still isn’t much urgency in the riffs, the super-clean tones belying a more intense attack. You know, this kinda reminds me of that OGOD (Over-Gain Optimal Death) band I saw open for Acid Mothers Temple a couple years back—if not a little bit of AMT themselves.

B Side “Traverse of the Oxen” starts off a little like its predecessor—minus the pounding percussion, mind you, which takes a little bit longer to come in. From there, it kinda goes to a darker place, the riffage thick and chunky, creating a more menacing feel. This tune sounds like it belongs on A Storm of Light’s latest, of which I’m a pretty big fan.

All in all, it’s a pretty cool post-metal release.

RATING: 7.5
