The blackened anguish and intensity of the first Swans releases can't be matched by many, but London/Somerset 8-piece Hey Colossus manage just that. With throat-shredding vocals and guitars spewing massive, sludgy distortion, "Cuckoo Live Life Like a Cuckoo" hits on a primal level like few metal-inclined releases can. Yet, there's almost always something unexpected and atypical around the corner. Hey Colossus frequently smear their overdriven songs in drifting, dreamy electronics that orbit around the scuzz and stoner rock distortion like an apprehensive satellite. Most surprising, however, is the 10 minute epic "How To Tell Time With Jesus." The track is like an abstract take on post-rock, with tendrils of clean guitar and an unpredictable structure that finally implodes in the final minute. Overall, "Cuckoo Live Life Like a Cuckoo" is an impressive statement that hits on a number of rock, noise, experimental, and metal trademarks with aplomb. – Ryan Potts, Experimedia
With PART CHIMP,s TIM CEDAR now pounding the skins for the newly invigorated UK octet, HEY COLOSSUS opts for hefty hi-fi where previously they were drenched in lo-fi fuzz. Cuckoo Live Life Like Cuckoo breathes where previous Hey Colossus efforts suffocated. Not to worry: tape loops and walls of noise created by the rhythmic clang of bass and drum, dual vocals, three guitars are all here, supplemented by ba?lama saz, turntables and synths.
