Bad Trip – Bad Trip
Self released – 2013
Rock, Post, Noise, Sludge, Instrumental
Bad Trip is a four-piece post hardcore instrumental sludge outfit from Thessaloniki, Greece. Viewed as a very romantic city on the mainland is it the birthplace of many legendary songs and has produced quite a few amazing artists. But most of those songs will probably only ever bring memories back from steamy hot vacation nights and dirty dances with those beautiful Greek girls. Bad Trip however does not aim to please and does not aim at the tourist heart. Bad Trip takes you out there, towards the horizon, where the sky meets the sea and everything seems possible. Their highly eclectic selection of three tracks on this release implore some noise and hardcore influences to weather the storm and postrock for the airy moments filled with that easy breeze. And there there’s their progressive sludge side that seems to want to build mountains out of all that water that surrounds their ship. Climb onboard; for this is one passionate trip worth taking!
