Review Summary: #dankviolence #twerkviolence #moving

3 of 3 thought this review was well written

How many fast tempo melodic Euroviolence bands am I into? Most of them that I hear, but being that I'm obsessed with the style doesn't mean my listening is deluded enough to ignore the cream of the crop. Cream of the crop indeed. Smile To The Wind is one of the most moving emotive hardcore bands I've heard since Beau Navire first started busting out jams. There's just so much freaking energy on this record that all I wanna do is smile and bob my head and forget about how bad my feels get, and just kind of take in how pretty life can be. There's so many cute little nuances on this album, that you have to really listen to take everything in, because it's pretty relentless, but the super fast flourishes throughout the generally aggro hc vibe really brings out a different dimension to the sound.

Where some bands of the ilk are far more reliant on quick, simple chord progressions (which can be done mighty tastefully, I tell you what), Улыбайся Ветру steps everything up with their tight little intricacies. There's a raw talent heavily displayed in the young bands coming out of the former Soviet states, and it really moves me I guess to share in the emotions of people with the same heritage as myself located so distantly from where I am and what I know. The universality of the language of music shines in Моменты quick burst of flames.

This is crazy, even though I can't understand half of what's being said, this is heavy, chaotic hardcore punk with mathcore like instrumentation, wow

It's bizarre how melodic it is given the nature of the transitions, this band is something special.
