#129: KASSIOPEIA/NOTHING LEFT TO GRASP - “split”
again a release of two of those german emo-violence-bands.
the two songs by KASSIOPEIA were recorded in 1995. while the first song (“scham”) is a pure powerviolence one, the second song (“knife”) sounds more like the songs on the KASSIOPEIA-7” that was recorded earlier in the same year. again it begins like this fragile emo-song and gets more chaotic and loud pretty soon.
NOTHING LEFT TO GRASP from augsburg start off like an emo-rock-band, but just by listening to the very tense drum- and bass-sound you can guess, that it will get more chaotic soon. which it does. the song (“gravitas”), which is better than the KASSIOPEIA-songs by the way, was recorded in 1995 too.
#128: KASSIOPEIA - “s/t”
in the mid- and late-90ies there were lots of “emo-violence”-bands in germany. they didn’t really have a homogeneous sound. but the kind of singing, the poetic lyrics and the emo-attitude was quite the same. this really made a difference to other scenes in other countries that were more violent or had more machismo. not that something like that wasn’t happening as well, but it was slightly different. KASSIOPEIA was one of those bands.
this 7”, that was recorded in 1995, is like a fanzine. between the cardboard-cover there are several pages full of personal texts, lyrics, political messages and some kind of poems. the whole thing is really well done.
the four songs have this kind of fragile-emo-feeling, but turn out really loud at the end. the screamed lyrics and all the guitar-/drum-work is some kind of german emo-violence - if you want to label or call it like that.
