(Andy Synn enters the House of Falling Ash, the new album from Californian trio Chrome Ghost)
You know how insurance companies calculate that once you’ve been in an accident your chances of being in another accident drastically increase?
Well, the same kind of thinking applies here at NCS too… once we’ve written about a band we’re much more likely to write about them again in the future.
Of course, it doesn’t always work out this way – we don’t always have time to cover everything we want to – but there’s a good chance that, if we liked what you did once, we’re going to be keeping our eyes (and ears) on you for whatever you do next.
Case in point, while I was a few months late to the party with Chrome Ghost‘s second album, The Diving Bell (which you can read more about here), it quickly became a firm favourite of mine due to its unique integration of doomy majesty, ephemeral atmosphere, and rugged, grungy grooves.
So when I saw that the promo for their new album (out this Friday) was up for grabs I knew I had to hear it.
