Heavy Winged - Echoes of Silence International

Echoes of Silence Cover Across their first 3 full-length releases (plus several compilation appearances), the ex-NYC trio Heavy Winged have garnered a reputation for blowing out tuned-in eardrums with their urban retro-futurist DIY rampaging-giant-lizard noise rock. And deservedly so. Without giving up any raw power, Echoes of Silence focuses on another side of the group, one that works as much like a giant magnetic vortex as a nuclear-gargantua footstomp – hypnotically pulsating forward-motion drone drawing the listener inexorably further and deeper until they’re left, floating in space, whirrs of buzzing wattage their only living companion. Three tracks, 39 minutes.

Echoes of Silence reviewed on Ptolemaic Terrascope Online

Those expecting a phase-shift to minimalist quietude from this release based on its title are in for a shock I think. Though this fourth release from the Brooklyn avant-noise power-trio does shoot for a more organic drone-based groove, there aren't too many moments where silence holds court. If their earlier work conjured images of giant irradiated creatures doing battle in the ruins of cities, perhaps this is more like the dreams of those creatures, victorious, returned to their lairs. . .

Echoes of Silence reviewed on Broken Face

By the time this disc came out New York combo Heavy Winged had already called it quits. That’s a bloody shame as their noise-clad drone rock crescendos nicely reject the dogma of various churches of experimental noise and improv, moving freely across a quite wide musical landscape. . . .
