If we look with a little attention to the Portuguese metal scene, it becomes obvious that, over recent years, the number of bands/projects has increased dramatically and that have a certain exposure, at least at home with regular concerts that are organized and ease of recording that exists today, on the other hand, this myriad of bands, there is a significant lack of works that fall within the sphere in which they move Catacombe: Post Rock/Metal. Discussions and polemics aside, the fact is that the decade just ended was indelibly marked by this kind of sound, much to blame (in a good way, of course!) names like Isis, Pelican, Neurosis, Explosions In The Sky or Mono before reaching a point rapidly approaching saturation, and where, in future, only quality will prevail or else who knew the pulse walk your way.
The northerners Catacombe will be one of the few portuguese examples to embark on this kind of sounds, and after the release of their debut recording, the EP "Memoirs" in 2008, caused some buzz, not only by the quality of his songs, but also by sharing the stage with names like Minsk or Nadja; symptomatic effect, therefore.
What initially was a solo project of Peter Sobast, quickly evolved into the band format and this is the same format that presents today "Kinetic" (after all be under the baton of Sobast), his first long-duration, composed by seven themes that are no more than a shred of emotion, a painting on a canvas bare, we will by carrying different environments, each with its color, sometimes more sweet and innocent, sometimes more harsh. Basically, what we have here is the step following the premiere, filled with themes that only with very good quality; news on music here not plentiful, but not always the good disks to demarcate the other for originality, but because they are ... good! The influences are still there, more or less blurred, depending on the artwork takes shape, under the command palette of six colors in the hands of Sobast. "Anna-Liisa", "Epic Ride" or "Mockba" will be the best strokes in this beautiful picture, abstract, but when emotions are almost palpable. (16/20)
