There isn't much about Evil Signs. The only thing on their profile is a quote from the movie Fight Club, “We are the singing, all dancing crap of the world.” I associate that movie with a few things. Coming to terms with one's homosexuality or the problems with toxic masculinity are my preferred interpretations. But then there are the Mens Rights Activists who have slightly different views. I wonder if they know that the movies based off of a book written by a gay man. But I digress. There isn't much I can share with you about the band Exit Signs. Searching there name I came up with another band which I'm not convinced is the same one. Perhaps it is, but their sound was much more electronic, almost synth poppy, unlike the experimental track I'm listening to here.
The intro to this track kind of sounds like Mr. Magoo sleep talking. And he's about to have one hell of a nightmare. Things become more distorted, you get this sound that is kind of like what you'd hear from an ultrasound if the child in the womb was rosemary's baby. And it builds, getting louder until it suddenly stops and there's static. A ghostly, simple and repetitive synth melody sound raises out of the static, that continues as we hear other strange and eerie sounds. Distorted voices with tons of reverb and finally it just breaks out into a really heavy crunching guitar sound and thumping percussion.
This part of the song sounds like it came off of the Prong album Cleansing, there is some shredding squeaky guitar solos, that might be more like slayer or another speedcore metal band that could give this a faster feel than Prong but it doesn't really stand out. The description is exactly that. For all it's avant-garde posturing and gritty experimental sound scraping this track sounds exactly like Prong when it actually gets going. If you're a fan of that particular album, and you don't mind some experimental sounds especially if you have to get through it in the beginning, it's like three minutes before the drums and guitars kick in. But you might be into that too.
Personally, I think it's an alright song. I might make parallels to other bands when it comes to the music, but it comes together in an original enough way and I found that I could appreciate what was happening sonically here.
