The way out is through… together in sickness and filth… as long as somebody can really explain me what “weirdo” means, what is actually sick or filthy. It’s quite small chances to let myself tied up as it’s just don’t seems an option to torture somebody for my own pleasure, but that really don’t make me healthier as those who doing this kind of “kinky” stuffs are not by default sicker then me. Still, there’s always a first time for everything and… never say never because as a joke of life, when you refuse something it will comes down on you crushing. Differences make us unique, and right or wrong is just a matter of perception.
And 6:33 is quite an unique and intense blending of music including metal rawness, electro/jazz/funk vibe, industrial shapes, darkwave and pop like melodies and… maladies and… lot of healthy sickness. So, where did you put those handcuffs and that whip?
“Hybrid” might be the proper label for what Kinky Zombie – vocals, Niko – guitars, S.A.D. – bass, Dietrisch von Schtrudle – keys & machines and Mr Z. – machines & keys throw in their special music blender and served us… boiling hot.
Active on the French scenes since the end of 2008, 6:33 quickly signed a deal with the French label M & O Music, and their first album, “Orphan of Good Manners” was released in April 2011. Recorded and mixed by Vincent Thermidor, mastered by Jens Bogren, this 10 tracks sounds clear, powerful, cutting and groovy. And it’s a pretty hard job while we’re talking about not only the mixture of different music styles and approaches, but also the blending of sounds, an overlapping construction of electronic and classic instruments. And “Orphan of Good Manners” sounds very good.
The music is very breathing, excellent and catchy themes are also incorporated as almost chaotic metal/hardcore massacres. Perhaps some will consider it too “colourful” or even vivid, but exactly this is what makes the difference, it definitively their own charm. One moment they sound like Slipknot, very next moment they twist into Mr. Bungle. One minute it feels like listening Cameo (“Word Up!”) and in the next measure they switch to something diabolic and intense. It’s pretty groovy.
Build upon powerful metal themes, killer riffs, pounding drums, furious and raw vocals, 6h33 are add to their themes all the flavors they can get from pop to funk and back all over.
It might be sick, it might be filthy, but it’s powerful, exciting and I love it.
This is not something conventional, but quite refreshing.
