Tour de Force



The name “Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire” gives me the willies. Have you ever really closed your eyes and envisioned such an act? It’s just… so… fucked up. And it becomes infinitely creepier when you consider the question, “Why would anyone do such a thing?” Are they delusional? Ignorant? Or simply mad?

And the band’s music is more than fitting for such a memorable moniker. I was trying to think of a silly journalistic phrase to sum them up quickly and simply, and the best I could do is “grindcore brutes.”

So. Grindcore brutes Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire are doing a U.S. tour in March. In case the first two paragraphs of this post didn’t make it clear, I think you should go see them.
