Love Is Red: First release in seventeen years……

Love Is Red - Darkness Is Waiting

Love is Red was a melodic hardcore band that originated in Florence Alabama in the year 2000 and eventually called Nashville Tennessee home for the rest of its existence. The band did extensive U.S. touring throughout the U.S. until 2005. There was a reunion show in Nashville Tennessee, in December of 2010. Love is red have currently re-united in 2021 for a few reunion shows and new EP release.

Love Is Red return with their first release, Darkness Is Waiting in seventeen years. The band originally formed in the year 2000 in Florence, Alabama. Following changes in their line-up they relocated to Nashville, TN, and dropped their biggest release The Hardest Fight, on Stillborn Records in 2004. A year later Love Is Red disbanded after multiple US tours with a brief reunion in 2010 for a final show in Nashville.

A decade later Furnace Fest asked the band to reunite once again to play that festival. Due to the pandemic the fest was postponed to 2021 and with the down time, the band returned to writing music. The EP was recorded and produce remotely, and saw the original line-up unite with new members. The resulting sound is incredibly powerful. Every track hits hard with ludicrously distorted guitars, energetic percussion and aggressive vocals.

The title track, Darkness Is Waiting, gradually builds increasing the anticipation of the EP. Establishing the tone of the release with their intense, full sound, this introduction transitions into Keep Moving which reveals more of their musicality. Experimenting with rhythms and dynamics, Love Is Red, deliver a commanding sound whilst delving into progressive techniques. From the fast pace and non-standard rhythms of A Different Path, through to contrapuntal melodies and intricate riffs of Shallow Graves.

 Almost two decades may have passed since their last release, but Love Is Red have returned with an epic bang. The energy across the EP never lets up. The outfit have retained elements of their early noughties identity whilst evolving their music to bring the sound up to date. Encapsulating the essence of Love Is Red, ‘Darkness Is Waiting’ is some of their best work yet.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5741 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
