Black Salvation - Uncertainty Is Bliss

Label : Relapse | Archive under hardrock / aor

Release type: Full-length CD

Marcel H. : Hard rock with an Eighties wave/post punk edge to it and a pinch of doom and psychedelia. That’s how I would describe ‘Uncertainty Is Bliss’ in as short as possible a way. In itself that could provide a lot of goodness. However, after multiple spins the only thing that stays with me positively is the drumming. Which, in itself, is not so weird since that is courtesy of Uno Bruniusson (Procession, Death Alley, ex-In Solitude, ex-Grave Pleasures). The rest of the music is quite loose and sputters and totally not memorable. Especially the vocals give it the wave/post punk vibe. But, just like with those genres it is most of the time extremely moaning and whiney, but not in a positive way, and it works on the nerves. Musically it sounds as if the band has just left the practice room. On many an occasion it is untight and extremely loose, but not in a good way. Except for the drumming that it. Due to Uno’s contribution ‘Uncertainty Is Bliss’ just scores a satisfactory mark by the tiniest of margins. What does Relapse see in this band? No idea.
