Sarsekim - Paroxysm

What do you think about that? Oh really? Yeah, I see your point. Yes, I agree that I don’t like SARSEKIM as much as I should. It’s called “Paroxysm” and marks the end of a five-year absence. What’s it mean? “A sudden outburst of emotion or action,” and I’m quoting the dictionary by the way. Well, like I said, it’s sort of impressive, but I wouldn’t say I’m enthralled with it exactly.


I can barely hear you. I think you’re breaking up…all right, that’s a little better. What I meant to say earlier was that they’re from Australia. Ha ha, I doubt they live in the Outback. Heh, I’m sure they don’t get tired of hearing that shrimp phrase either. What’d you say? Oh, it just has the two songs on it, which last about twelve minutes total. “Paroxysm” looks really professional, though, especially for being an independent release. Gee, I guess they sound a little like a slower WETWORK and bands of a similar Technical Death nature. No, no, I can’t hear you. There’s a lot of static! Okay, I can hear you now. Um…now what? They just have the five members with standard instruments. Yeah, they’re talented. They use basic stuff such as guitar, bass and drums. The production’s good. I’m kind of glad you asked me that, because the production could be much shittier.


I’ll definitely be looking out for them in the future. I hope so too. Five years is a long time to wait for a follow-up. At that rate, we’d be twiddling our thumbs until 2010. There’s an mp3 on their official site, but you’ll have to make your way through a maze of links to get to it. What time are we meeting up again? Ten? Okay, man, I’ll see you there. SARSEKIM. Do you need me to spell it for you? All right, then, see ya! (Online January 10, 2006)
