GRAVE JIBES Fanzine #12 [RU] - 2012

By Pall Natsol

It’s always a real pleasure to find something as truly original and passionate as the new album of Popoi Sdioh.
Even though the “ingredients” are quite on the view – obvious Virgin Prunes influence is accompanied by early industrial approach and modern deathrock sound - mixed altogether
they give quite a weird result. Generally “Before And After Party” sounds like a soundtrack to mad primeval party in the centre of the city, with a lot of alcohol, ritual human sacrifice and even cannibalism… real, or may be it’s just a bad trip caused by alcohol and drugs? Pure urban tribalism on the edge of reality.
Perhaps the only minus to be outlined for this album is that being quite long it doesn’t manage to capture listeners attention during the whole work. Probably it’s because “Before And After Party” is entirely filled with schizoid tension, may be it just creates too weird universe…
Anyway, there’s not much else to criticize.
Popoi Sdioh don’t afraid to play their own music and  be weird.
It’s not goth, neither industrial or any “wave”. But it’s likely that you’ll love them if you like the aforementioned genres.*
 
Grade: 9/10
