If there was a Champions League for record producers, Ross Robinson would be playing in it every year. So if Robinson says that he’s recorded an album of a great band, it’s best to get ready for listening.
Band which merges punk with experimental music and unusual, minimalistic poetry.
If there were a Champions League for record producers, Ross Robinson would play in it every year. So if he says that he’s recorded an album by a great band, it’s best to listen. Robinson has worked on such important albums as Roots by Sepultura and Relationship of Command by At The Drive-In. He also produced the debut albums of Korn, Limp Bizkit and Slipknot. The Polish band in which he became interested is Semantik Punk, formerly known as Moja Adrenalina, and Semantik Punk’s album produced by Robinson is titled abcdefghijklmnoprstuwxyz. The label Lado ABC is looking to release this album on the 15th of December, 2014.
Sematik Punk’s earlier productions constituted an intriguing combination of metal's heavy riffs and hardcore's wild energy. They sound a bit like Sweden’s Meshuggah, and the lighter parts of Sematic Punk’s compositions bring to mind the Wrocław band The Kurws. On their new album there will be more noise and punk, the latter of which just became part of the new name of the band formerly known as Moja Adrenalina. The brutally broken rhythms draw attention, and the manic bass seems to travel on a different orbit to the guitar of band leader Rafał Modliński. His guitar plays slides of sorts, glissandi which eventually turn into clear, ruthless riffs. Their strong, experimental music, which balances on the brink of performance art and unusual, minimalistic poetry, seems to show Semantic Punk wanting to exceed the limitations of language.
