Life Processes by Forward, Russia

Life ProcessesThere is nothing quite like the sound of Forward, Russia in full flow. Gone are the days when every track is just a number and they are released to fully expose themselves as chroniclers of existential angst. I am actually reminded (in a very abstract way) of some Prog music like Van Der Graaf’s Pawn Hearts because of the sheer ambition of the songs and the use of changing musical motifs within them.

We Are Grey Matter

We Are Grey Matter(clip) by Forward Russia

Full to overflowing with passion and making noise like no-one else, Forward Russia create their own musical world. The sense of dynamic tension and release is stunning and the disturbing atmospheres created by all these musicians together is quite unique. It is almost impossible to illustrate the way the songs develop with just the 30 second clips I use but I’ll try again:

Gravity & Heat

I don’t know whether this is destined to be one of those masterpieces that is only known to a few people – but masterpiece is the word I would use.
