Review: Korsunnuz – Half Life/Every Day Is The Day Demo


It’s not often you get a demo in that lifts the spirits in the way this one did.  It might only be two tracks, and a brace that are a bit rough around the edges, but with music now searching once again for direction these are songs that could point the way.  There’s no doubt that the music on offer here is heavily influenced by the Seattle sound, chiefly Alice In Chains and The Melvins, but it’s more rounded than just grunge 2.0.  The tempo and rhythms have an early doom edge and the structure is reminiscent of Iggy And The Stooges.  In a way the lack of polish in production fits with the sound.  Where bands have tried and failed to recreate garage music in a studio this crackles with a semi live vibe that made stars of the likes of Mudhoney.  You do get the feeling that if and when Korsunnuz put out a full album they’ll need an anthem to really announce themselves, something that’s yet to be heard.  As a marker though this shows a band with real creative fire that could be in the right place at the right time.
