"shackles of the world"
Time: 37 min.
Style: Punk Rock
The album "Eorsha" is a good reason to refresh your ideas about the domestic punk-rock scene. The guys have been around for a long time, and over the past five years they have updated their sound, heading towards “alternative music”. Now heavy punching riffs and desperate texts are strung on their punk base, which seems to be a very winning combination. Plus sincerity. When young musicians scream about the existential nature of their existence, it sometimes looks touching, but more often it is ridiculous. When non-indifferent and nervousness retain 30-year-olds in their work, this is worth listening to more closely. Sometimes it happens that the group simply imitates youthful maximalism, in connection with which she wants to regret, but sometimes the musicians go to a new level. With regard to "Yorsh" we can talk about this case.
The disc, which has an extremely memorable cover, begins with the poem “The Word” about the hard fate of the musician. The verse is very student, but captivating with its sincerity: “But you know, maybe an unfamiliar sms will come one day, that your song helped me not to make a step from the roof of the house ...” After that, you wait for the same naive songs, but it was not here: “Yorshi” are chopped up in an adult way, a total slam should be going on at concerts - and the meaningful accents in the songs are set correctly. There are places on the disc that make chanting refrains, and there are those where even the most calm listener cannot resist shaking his head. Paphos at "Eorsha" sometimes very subtly turns into irony, as in the song "Hate." Her entire text is dedicated to the fierce stigma of pop-punk, ska-punk and other tattooed money earners to imitate youth music - but in this text it is impossible to make out almost a word without a booklet printout, because the group made the exact arranging opposite of the hateful genres: loud, heavy and aggressive . Having excellently gone through, the soloist Dima “Falcon” Sokolov suddenly in a pressing anti-war “Living weapon” includes lyrics, which is quite successfully combined with a hard rock chorus. Further, "Yorsh" indulges in the openly foolish (pop-punk) "Men" and "Bad Habits", after which it returns to the verses. (*Review by Алексей Мажаев ).
