I found Rishloo through last.fm while listening to Tool radio. I immediately fell in love with their dynamic sound, deep lyrics, and their singers ability to completely transform in between segments of a song. I'll share with you some of my favorite songs by them and provide some background on each one.
This was the first song I heard by Rishloo, and remains a favorite to this day. It opens up with a mysterious vibe, and builds up during the verses for each flooring chorus.
-Freaks and Animals-
One of their heavier songs, Freaks and Animals is just plain creepy-awesome. The singer's style just drips of a diabolical ringleader grabbing the attention of the unknowing masses. The interlude builds tension for a dramatic lyrical twist.
This track declares a existential despair on one of the deepest levels I've heard outside of philosophical writings. The "For the love of..." passage almost brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard it.
Weighing in at just over 8 minutes, this track is simply an epic. Complete with "movements", it takes the listener on a journey. t about 2:50 the catchy guitar riffs drop off and you're left in dark depths with a piano segment. A guitar slowly drags you out, while drums come in to push you on. Then the vocals return, and with a Pink floyd/moody blues style solo they completely bring the song back to life.
Anyways, I thought I'd share this little gem of a band I've found. Drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with an comments or replies. I'd be glad to hear your opinions/recommendations.

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
