badGod Music (2011)
4 songs and 24 minutes of dark melancholic metal from a duo of musicians called Trillion Red. Patrick Brown handles guitars, bass, keyboards, and vocals while Max Woodside is the drummer. Songs like “Forging Two Tongues/A Reckoning” and “Right Over To The Helm” have much in common with Isis and Jesu- and I have to be in the right mood to take this in. It’s quirky, atmospheric, ambient- occasionally left field, noisy, and as alternative as it is heavy.
Probably fits right in with the San Francisco musical climate- “Two Tongues” should resonate with the twenty-somethings who wonder where they fit in the current economic model. As for myself, Trillion Red merely registers in the ‘okay’ feeling barometer.
Rating: 3.5 / 6
