Review : PAZAHORA from Singapore can be describe as really heavy peace punk in the crust vein.Melody-saturated guitar-work abounds and it completely works.This is both listenable and would be fitting it at any sort of raging chaos party because it jams.They lyrics are bleak and define the anti-capitalist minority of the opposition that few still have enough hope to champion. PAZAHORA can be likened to REMAINS OF THE DAY,WITCH HUNT and maybe DISABLE from poland at times.OK, it also reminds me of TO WHAT END?, which is not a bad thing by any means.Really driving and epic and i like the fact that they have multiple singers that have distinct vocals that work together well. (WK) Maximum Rock n Roll 287 April 2007.
PAZAHORA from Singapore have gotten my blood pumping before, and does so this time as well. Dark, hard, and melodic crustcore with some obvious references to Tragedy, but also stuff that reminds me more of Swedish bands like Personkrets 3:1 for instance. In other words, pretty much the same stuff as found on their CD from 2007 and that's just what I wanted. They have the heaviness, they have the catchiness, they have the well thought out riffs, and they have me digging like a madman. Excellent stuff and far better than many of their European and American counterparts. If I were to complain about anything it would be that the sound is a bit muddy, but as it's not crap I can live with it and the music is good enough to help me overcome this anyway. On the flip we have Kah-Roe-Shi from Malaysia which is a slightly more unpredictable bunch, showing their skills in everything from spastic powerviolence to sludge - all rolled into one. It's loud, violent, and twitchy… and I'm torn. I can't argue with the fact that this heavy as hell and really powerful and even remind me of His Hero Is Gone every now and then, but there's just something about it that I'm not in love with. I guess there are a few too many tempo changes in a too short period of time and it can seem a bit too schizophrenic. But still, Kah-Roe-Shi are good and Pazahora are great so this is a definite buy.
