Pressor — Weird Things
(Addicted Label BNiL 723, 2018, CD / DL)

by Henry Schneider, Published 2018-10-07

Weird Things Cover art

Harsh electronics, distorted guitar, power chords, and heavy metal sludge ooze out of your speakers for four stoner rock and doom laden tracks: “Heavy State,” “Weird Things,” “Tripping Deep,” and “Hexadecimal Unified Insanity.” Russian band Pressor (Danya Kornev on drums, Kirill Grushkin on bass, Tanya Shabanova on Theremin vox, Anton Khmelevsky on guitar, and Stas Vasilev on guitar, vocals, and synth) churns out metal prog that latches on and grows on you the longer you listen to it. Swooping abstract phased synths, screaming and searing electronics, and unintelligible vocals add to the charm of this release. These Russians know how to lay down massive grooves that suck you into their demented world. But wear your hip waders while slogging through their sonic morass and be sure to protect your speakers! Definitely for fans of heavy pscychedelic instrumental grooves and death metal.
