CHILD is a trio of jam-obsessed first-class musicians, who met in 2012 in the rock underground of Melbourne. Between the three working class Australians Mathias (guitar/vocals), Michael (drums) and Jayden (bass), who can best be described as a blues fanatic with liquid steel as blood, grew as strong a musical band as a group of Musicians can only cultivate and nurture themselves by the unabated urge for intense jamming. It quickly became clear that songs here would not be created simply as architectural objects on the drawing board, but as a result of a deep dialogue between three conspiratorial individuals who have given their instruments speech.
In the spring of 2016 CHILD's dialogue was resumed, but with a new bassist, Danny Smith, also recruited from the circle of friends. On the self-imposed goal of the band, nothing had changed: the magical intensity of the CHILD-liveshows was to be transferred intimally and unbuilt to the new recordings, and a sluggish, sonorous power that made the good old doom metal pale was a perfect protoplasm, which Mathias was able to inoculate many very lively blues cells with his singing and guitar playing after black swamp blues.
The two-month recording process, a live recording with just enough space for bluestypic improvisations, resulted in a refreshing contrast to the currently booming heavy blues rock, because, irrishingly, "Blueside" creates a very primordial blues full of expressive power even more strongly in the foreground and still to speak also of true doomfans, which the underlying cause of all instruments plays directly into the entrails.
