the wheels have come off- Bronto Skylift live review

Scottish two-piece Bronto Skylift deserved to play to a bigger crowd than the handful gathered in Derby last night but the small audience and venue only served to amplify their massive sound.

Beyond the onslaught of extreme is funky melody. Cobblepot tap dances across your brain before hitting you up with a jerking violent riff to rock your innards. Danny Glover Isn’t Dead walks a fine line between high art and unadulterated noise pollution.

This could descend into chaos at any second but it is the precision and passion that makes jaws go slack and brains begin to melt. This is mighty noise that by rights should take many more than two to create.

This is immense and primal with Iain’s arms a blur as he takes his kit to break point and back while Niall strobes and screams through the bar, refusing to be contained. Unnaturally fast beats and searing riffs that tear through the room, engulfing all in a visceral melodic wave of hardcore destruction.

Bronto Skylift are a wonder live. Watched in rocked out reverence as they rip through their set, a sense of excited fear on the faces looking on.

Barbaric noise delivered like a punch to the guts which leaves you with an absurd grin and the realisation you are alive, so very very alive. Straight up, unmissable, shock and awe.

  1. I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this site. I really hope to see the same high-grade blog posts by you in the future as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my very own website now ;)

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Great work!

  3. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  4. …Additional Information ca be found here…

    […]Wide Info Rated this website as 9.5/10 as being the Internet top website[…]…

  5. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  6. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it! moderowany katalog stron httpss://,k,20/
