Fiesel’s turbulent debut release was so excruciatingly powerful that I found it hard not to break into severely spasmodic dancing every time I heard it. But when I first heard The Ruins of This Life, I was a little pissed off. Fiesel had changed – instead of crafting those short, mind-blowingly angular rock nuggets that I had fallen in love with, they had produced a full album out of seven, much more lengthy tunes. “”Better Days Will Come,”” starts off quietly, and then suddenly rockets into an explosive, energetic rock song. “”Coin Return”” has epileptic drums and abused, out-of-control guitar strings smashed to pieces in absolute chaos. By the time the cluttering feedback on “”Black as Midnight on a Moonless Night / Cold Hardwood Floor”” slowly faded away, allowing a brief little calm bit to surface amidst the chaos, I was in complete musical ecstasy.The intense, explosive chaos that Fiesel creates is absolutely terrific. On a track like “”Crime of the Century,”” they turn thirteen minutes into a jerky, spasmodically changing jolt of sound and energy. The drums aren’t satisfied to find one specific beat, instead they are pounded in a seemingly uncontrolled – yet solidly rhythmic – manner. The guitars, on the other hand, build tension by short, repeated fragments, only to be blown away in a haze of feedback and angularity – chords are turned upside, flipside, rightside, leftside, and underside, and frantic waves of axe noise are draped over the listener relentlessly. Your head is pummeled without remorse – by the end of it all, you’re left in such a state that you can no longer think straight. And though, at times, the band does cool things down a bit, they manage to end the piece in messy, feedback-drenched climax, only to shoot right into “”Choke,”” a one minute throwback to the style the exhibited on their ep. Fiesel are one of my favourite new rock outfits to surface in a long time. Making their way through the most impossible time measures, handling absolute guitar chaos as if it was nothing, while still remaining a zest for melody and tunefulness, these musicians perfectly embody what it means to be rock. Call it experimental, call it math rock, call if what ever the fuck you’d like – Fiesel are one of the freshest bands around today, and The Ruins of This Life is an album I sincerely suggest you buy

Press quotes for Fiesel:
Indieville: “”Making their way through the most impossible time measures, handling absolute guitar chaos as if it was nothing, while still remaining a zest for melody and tunefulness, these musicians perfectly embody what it means to be rock.””

The Noise: “”Not for the faint of heart or the musically unadventurous… Wildly dissonant to subtly melodic, songs that appear to be without form or structure, yet upon further listening, it becomes stunningly apparent that each bar is meticulously arranged.””

Northeast Performer: “”Excellent blend of imaginative rhythms, jarring guitars, scream-along vocals… within seconds the song can switch from catchy melodies that stick with you to chaotic math rock noise.””] “
