Black As ChalkOURO

Label: MAGIC MILE MUSIC distributed by Made In Germany Music GmbH

Black As Chalk “OURO” – now that’s what I call Independent Rock

Back in the early days of the band the German Visions-Magazine – they knew already: “Many bands play Indie Rock, but only a few do it so well.”

With their fourth full length album Black As Chalk have grown to be a relentless Indie-Powerhouse. Crunchy and fuzzy guitars, snarling bass lines, crushing drums and the recording room as an additional instrument, a fourth dimension, make for an outstanding sonic experience. Hear the forces at work, the performances, straining bodies and materials: buzzing guitar strings, swooshing cymbals, vocal chords hissing through microphones. All together in one room – live. A sonic body doing fine without the piano of the previous albums, working without interruption and stop-on-a-dime precision.

OURO is a hydra – a many headed snake. Great hooks next to reduced and tender passages suddenly burst into hypnotic noise.
