Tile Tobacco Spiders / Calculated Agenda 7″ (Burning Hell)
A new Burning Hell Records box set came out recently, of which this new Tile 7″ was included. Glad I got my hands on a copy of Tile’s contribution, as Tile are one of the least appreciated groups making heavy melodic rock today, which just ain’t right. Floor is clearly an inspiration, and early Jesu a decent comparison, but I swear I heard notes of Siamese Dream-era Smashing Pumpkins in their live set too, as Tile manage to make their down-tuned, sludgy guitars sound hopeful and even sweet at times. These two songs are a little meaner, though – definitely the sort of thing Bovine Records would’ve jumped to release in 1994, or at least thrown on a compilation with Greenmachine and Thug. Of the two, “Calculated Agenda” has a particularly strong lurch. I think Tile would appeal to a lot of people into this sort of thing, I just wish there was an easier way for them to find a copy, rather than shelling out fifty bucks for a box set. Maybe write the band? Sometimes, the good stuff is worth the effort.
