If you’re a fan of Tool, you’ll love this – or perhaps hate it for sometimes being a copy. Another link dumped by Rufio!
Rishloo, out of Seattle, formed in 2002 and aims to push the boundaries of Rock. Indeed, this isn’t really Metal. But it isn’t really Rock either. Well, sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t. What I can say is that it’s mostly psychedelic and progressive, sometimes nuts and freaky. In short, it’s absolutely great!
The first song I’d like to feed you is called Omega. If it didn’t say Rishloo as the artist, I would have easily bet my scrawny life on it being a Tool song. Guess I would’ve been pushing up the daisies.
But it doesn’t all sound like Tool, as per support of the next song, Feathergun in the Garden of the Sun. I’m hearing a strong Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree influence here, along with something funky and groovy. It’s blowing me away. So check this out, alright. Play it loud, volume at kill setting.
I’ve got a sneaky suspicion Rishloo songs will be highly varied in nature and character, so I suggest you seek out a couple more before you make up your mind definitively. You can check out Rishloo on Facebook, where it says the band has recently called it quits, after vocalist Andrew decided to leave the group. However, the three remaining members have expressed their desire to continue a band, though a different one, yet unsure what it’s going to be exactly. So, keep an eye on that FB page if you’re digging this.
