Demo-lition Derby: Colombian Necktie

Columbian Necktie
Demo
Thrashy power violence outfit, Colombian Necktie by their own admission on “Black Ash” have “empty pockets and a worn out concept of hope.” They also have a pretty tidy three song EP of “negative metal” that swings enough fat bottom to spring Sir Mix-a-lot’s anaconda. Working the well-worn groove hollowed out by Trap Them and, at times, Converge with a few thrashy inflections, Colombian Necktie are a band I could see growing into something more well rounded given time and a budget.
The aforementioned “Black Ash” crosses Séance Prime with hints of Petitioning the Empty Sky, riding a triumphant riff through its second half that cribs from a young Kurt Ballou. “In Your Absence’s” yowling vocals give way to a coruscated flash of guitar soloing that slinkees its way through the song. “Moris Code” [sic] is a by the numbers speed freak to close out.
For now Colombian Necktie’s influences are a tad obvious, but they do their thing well enough. Check it out here.

I was in a classic rock cover band called Columbian Necktie (yes, we played Free Bird). Our name was the best thing about us (by far). I hope they can do something with the name.

Fuck. Ya know, I remember struggling to remember to spell it with an o. It's been too long and now I'm an old dummy.

The name reminds of something a deathcore band would use. I think there actually is a deathcore band called chelsea grin. hahaha
