Sinsinatti I'm so glad i've found this record, at first i wasn't sure about it's sound but when i listened the entire thing i fell in love.
The instrumentation makes me feel nostalgia even when it's a new record, specially the guitar tone and the bass guitar.
Also the drumming is outstanding, i'll never regret buying this. Favorite track: Esquizo.

KenO This band really hits the sweet spot for me!
A lot of time music this powerful tends to get compressed but not here. Powerful, airy, textured and tasty. On vinyl this record, on top of it being great music,really scratched an itch for hearing great, satisfying sounds. I’ll reach for this one often! Favorite track: Arruda.

about

Before everything.
Before computers, smartphones, wi-fi and social networks. Before satellites, planes, cars. Before the industrial revolution, the agricultural revolution. Even before the first societies. Let us travel back in time, before we even conceived the idea of time, before we met the sun and moon, day and night. And before fire. What do we find? The sparkle. The scintilla that human used to create fire. The first flash, and therefore, the first inspiration.
In a way, “Scintilla” – the album – is Catacombe’s first. With its renewed sound - redefining post-rock with deeper harmonies and hypnotic, unpredictable rhythms – there are heartwarming breaches of light cutting through the massive walls of sound. There are echoes of suspending melodies, side by side with vigorous, evolving landscapes. There’s light and obscurity dwelling in deep resonance, inviting us to self-redefinition.
It appears maybe too long after their last, “Quidam”, of 2014. It appears after individual and collective growth, after labour, after sleep, after laughter and tear. It appears when those who compose it are not the same as five years ago, even if the past feels near. And it arises, harshly, to teach us a valuable lesson: that there is no darkness that can withstand the faintest of glares, there is no room that does not light up with the faintest of lamps.
"Scintilla" leads us back to that primordial moment when man discovers fire, so that millions of years later a band can discover the course, or the maturity. The light, or the dawn. The morning star, the same one that is given to those who triumph. And, needless to say, "Scintilla" - and Catacombe - have triumphed.
Fiat lux.
