Live Report of our show with Trepalium at The Altherax – Nice FR on November 14th 2014

Hello there!!

Here is a live report of our show with Trepalium which happened on Friday November 14th 2014 at The Altherax in Nice – FR.

And as we do not forget our non-french reader friends, here is a english translation made by ourselves (only the part talking about us):

“The Altherax got used to light a barbecue in the evening concert, and as it is well covered for rainy evenings, I restore myself with a hamburger while the scene of Until The Uprising is prepared. I am surprised, when I come back in the room, by their professionalism. Nice scrims backdrops with neat logo of the band are arranged on each side of the drums, it’s clean. The group goes on stage. They are just three, which surprises me because I had already seen (and not loved) Until The Uprising at the MJC Picaud a few years ago, and I do not recognize anything: is it the same band? I wonder. Philippe explains me that there have been changes, but yes, this is the same band. In the end only stays Philip, drummer of the original lineup.

The musical style has evolved a lot too, now closer to djent and a band like Meshuggah. What is funny is that the band has just released an album and tonight they are going to play almost all of it to us. The band plays with three members tonight because Lilian, newly recruited as singer, is absent and it is Mick, one of the two guitarists, which takes the singing. A drum and two guitarists, no bass guitar (there is a bass player on the album but it is no longer in the band and they have found no one suitable for the moment).

The drummer also sends numerous samples that he controls with his Mac computer. It was him who did the drums intro on samples backing tracks, very nice. The following is enough atomic, with two seven strings guitars tuned down, which decimate our brain. The singing performed by Mick, while playing, is impressive, and he has to repeatedly catch his breath between songs. The set is physical! Harun of the band Trepalium comes just in front of the scene for a while, he seems to appreciate the guitar duo. The sound lacks a little of bass guitar for my taste (it’s a bassist who speaks so it’s not very objective). The crowd responds well and they finish highly acclaimed by the audience.

Set list: 
 


01. Introspection

02. Black Hole
03. Searching

04. Until The Uprising

05. Alien

06. All Is One

07. Claustrophobia

08. Where Everything Begins

09. Beyond My Sight”

 See you folks!

New Twisted Reality album review on the french webzine “French Metal”

Hello there!!

Here is another review of our album Twisted reality published on the french webzine “French Metal” on November 15th. Our album scores 18/20!!

“Until The Uprising c’est du death metal classique, du progressif, du djent, des sons electro, des passages planants. Bref une grosse claque…”

And as we do not forget our non-french reader friends, here is a english translation made by ourselves:

“France has quite a pool of skilled formations and if many have doubted or are still questioning themselves, one realizes daily and much more with Until The Uprising and its new “Twisted Reality” album. What album it is given me to present today, friends…

If Americans are more used to offer us this kind of bands, how Until The Uprising has been able to hide such a talent? Until The Uprising this is classic death metal, progressive, djent, electro sounds, hovering parts. In short, a huge slap … There is nothing more to say. Lovers of art, melodies and power are called to appear please because they will be served. Today, Until The Uprising presents us “Twisted Reality” and what to say? The guys from Nice hit really hard! “Twisted Reality” is an album full of modern metal, enriched by numerous meetings and band influences which can be Betraying The Martyrs, Dagoba or We Butter The Bread With Butter. “Twisted Reality” is not less than 10 tracks of high class and high quality, period; we will not drag on over a hundred years. If today we tend to put labels on a bit of everything and anything, and especially anyone, Until The Uprising has his own style, his universe, his soul, his own world in some sort and do not copy anybody. Know that the group is able to throw blast beats, incessant rhythms changes which swing us back and forth, as well as flattening us on the ground with a hovering atmosphere supported by a layer of electro sound … Pure happiness. You have to admit, that’s mastery … Michel, Anthony, Philip and Manuel take us further into the stratosphere, drives us up high like the title “Until The Uprising,” which is for me the best piece of “Twisted Reality” (they are all good but I let you discover them!). The small southern guys make us bad, very bad even, but God it feels good…

While listening to “Twisted Reality”, it does not bother one second, but take your time, enjoy this album, listen to it several times, give it the time it deserves, sincerely. “Twisted Reality” is THE slap in these recent weeks. This is a big discovery, a nice surprise. Follow them very (very) carefully. FYI, they look for a label. Word to the wise…”

 

See you folks!

New Twisted reality album review on french webzine “Aux Portes du Metal”

Hello there!!

Here is another review of our album Twisted reality published on the french webzine “Aux Portes du Metal” on November 14th.
As it is in French, we translated it for you non-french readers. Cheers!

“Until The Uprising is a band founded in 2008 by the four members that are Michel, Anthony, Philip and Lilian. The band mixed the influences of each member and released on October 28 its first album, Twisted Reality. The members had indeed preferred to tread the stage and gain a good reputation before releasing this album.

So what about Twisted Reality? Well we found a strong djent influence, but not only. This album features swift songs, whose violence is carried by the singer screams. We are also treated to a lot of blast beats and other fulliginous enough drums accelerations. The melodies of the guitars are varied, sometimes convoluted, twisted, sometimes more “soloish.” The rhythm part is far from being caricature and knows how to renew itself in order to give the songs some air. The groove is however not set aside, take for instance the beginning of Alien: this riff is incredibly effective! And I was talking to air the songs: the clean singing plays this role very well, although it can still be improved. We can even find in the guitar parts some dissonances reminding us (by far) the sounds of deathcore bands like Thy Art Is Murder.

But so far it’s still commonplace, it takes a touch of madness to stand out, and as such, Until The Uprising meets present. All Is One has a small air à la Sikth in the melody that is not unpleasant. In addition, there remains a small non-professional side in the sound, singing and in the very fresh aspect of the compositions that is not to displease me.

With this album, Until The Uprising manages to tickle my attention in the direction of hair growth and offers very strong compositions. A band to follow!”

New Twisted Reality album review on Nawak Posse

Hello there!!

Another cool review from the french webzine Nawak Posse!

Click here to read the complete review (in French) on their website.

“Cet album est un disque exceptionell joué par des musiciens remarquables [...] La force d’UNTIL THE UPRISING c’est cette capacité à introduire des riffs intéressants et inventifs dans tous leurs titres [...]”

And we do not forget our non-readers friends! Here is a translation made by ourselves for you:

“After a futuristic intro, the guitars descents will soon convince you that this album is an outstanding record played by outstanding musicians. Yep, we are dealing with a disc with relentless solos that owes as much to MESHUGGAH that SIKTH for influences but fits perfectly with the evolution of the current metal. The strength of UNTIL THE UPRISING is this ability to introduce interesting and inventive riffs in all their titles, not to mention the singing that has that something hovering and evanescent on a bass guitar/drums background solid as a rock. The band’s music is always melodic while fairly unstructured with a lot of breaks and setbacks that reflect the hard work of group composition. I will not dwell too much on this clear production that listens by itself and project UNTIL THE UPRISING in the international class, nor on the album artwork that fits the almost Sci-Fi music of the gang. The futuristic side of the group really seduced me with these electronic sounds regularly sprinkled on the disc that gives a modern and sophisticated touch (“Until The Uprising”) to this first album. A beginning that really predicts the best for this great band!

You will understand, I like to 200% this album!”

See you Folks!

New Twisted Reality album review on French webzine “Metal France”

Hello there!!

A new very nice review has been published today by the French webzine Metal France. The album scores 4/5!!

Click here to read the complete review (in French) on their website!

“[...] à l’écoute des riffs et des structures, on sent une maitrise technique et une richesse qui fait de cet album un cd de metal de haut niveau; le genre que tu écoutes plusieurs fois pour t’en imprégner complètement [...]“

As it is in French, we also translated it for you non-french readers. Cheers!

“Four adjectives to describe « Twisted reality », first real CD of the french band from Nice UNTIL THE UPRISING. Warning, here we reach a certain level.

Founded in 2007, has undergone a substantial line up change few years ago, strong of a demo in 2009 called “The Awakening of the Damned,” which received a honorable welcome, here is their offering whose ingredients are:

- Modernity: indeed, their metal is in the range of a “current” music, metal for young people yet steeped in a certain maturity and a job that had to be difficult. Under the label deathcore we feel a multitude of influences that rake broadly.

- Progressive: yes given the high level of the musicians, listening to the riffs and structures, we feel a technical mastery and richness that makes this album a CD of high-level metal; the kind you listen several times to completely immerse yourself in.

- Diversity: each title, despite having the same roots explodes you into a different world; we might as well think of deathcore, post hardcore, prog, groove etc.; the songs are diverse and varied, mastered, clear or aggressive; an inspired music;

- Power: Yes, in addition to their propensity to play well, their metal is muscular and sometimes angry or even extreme as evidenced by titles such as “Beyond My Sight.”

Add a flawless mix and you have a group that is well worth the blow that one stops there.

High-end!”

 

See you Folks!

Album Review on Mainstream Music Not.

Hello there!

Click here to read a review of Twisted Reality on Mainstream Music Not.

“It’s like Until The Uprising have an inexhaustible arsenal of riffs ranging from “great” to “fucking awesome” and they shoot away until the listener, having his sanity hanging by a thread, comes out of shelter with hands drawn up and says: ” Enough! You fucking killed it, I accept your authority”. And then the third song only begins.”
