The Sustained Low 'C' of Richard Strauss’ Also Sprach Zarathustra: Lime / Meat
Post-Black Metal, Hardcore
Hypaethral Records
December 21st, 2013
Release length: 12:31
Bandcamp
Tslcorsasz, also known as The Sustained Low ‘C’ of Richard Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra”, is a brand new Toronto-based band that brings together members of Titan, Gates, Fired of Mammon, and Rising Crust. These four fuse their collective energy and talents together to create a new breed of hyperactive Progressive Black Metal and Hardcore, as well as a debut two track seven-inch EP titled Lime / Meat through Hypaethral Records. But is this mixture something well worth paying attention to, or is this a bad combination only made worse through the use of cooked bovine and seasonings?

Well, Lime / Meat doesn’t actually seem to have anything to do with food. Instead it’s an odd little adventure that, while not quite experimental, treads various styles while sticking to the general Black Metal and Hardcore foundations. “Lime” hammers away with varying degrees of speed and emotional leads that often sound like something torn out of a Post-Black Metal or even Depressive composition, the latter thanks largely to the enthusiastic screaming vocals that find little distortion, just pushed back in the mix a bit. Then there’s “Meat,” which is a slower paced performance that sounds more like a sorrowful ballad at times, but without the clean singing. The lead riffs are all filled with rich emotion, and when the music gets deeper, so do the vocals, taking on a deeper growl that will put some hair on your chest.

Lime / Meat is definitely an interesting example of the Toronto Metal and Hardcore scene, formed by giants within the field. The Sustained Low ‘C’ of Richard Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra” is definitely a project that isn’t for everyone, and even for those with an open mind may need a few spins to fully embrace what exactly is going on here. But, for the most part, it’s a solid recording full of enthusiasm and sorrow worth checking out.
