First Look: Beauty in Chaos ft. Tish Ciravolo – Look Up

November 15, 2018

‘Look Up’ continues the sonically diverse guitar work that B.I.C. founder Michael Ciravolo is already well known for, but the addition of Tish’s voice gives a silky overtone to the gritty guitar driven track that, in a way, gives it a sonically ‘Ying/Yang’ type of vibe that adds to an avant-garde feel that I like to call ‘sheer originality’. 

 

Artist Spotlight: MICHAEL CIRAVOLO

Over a year ago, Michael got the urge to create something for himself and record a new guitar album, “Finding Beauty In Chaos.” This album is not your run of the mill shedder/wank fest album but rather a soundscape of multi layered guitar album using nothing but guitar effects, real drums and bass. We sat down with Michael Ciravolo to talk with him about the birth and creation of Beauty in Chaos.

TORCHED REVIEW – BEAUTY IN CHAOS DEBUT ALBUM ‘FINDING BEAUTY IN CHAOS’

September 28, 2018

The debut release ‘Finding Beauty In Chaos’ by Michael Ciravolo’s Beauty In Chaos is nothing short of a carefully curated masterpiece that brings some of the best musical elements of the past forward to today and beyond. When I first learned of this new project it really excited me to know that this dream convergence would include many of my all time favorite musicians. The list of names instantly sparked that same kind of curiosity and intrigue that led me to discover these artists to begin with thirty some odd years before.

If you’re into The Mission, The Cure, Ministry, Gene Loves Jezebel, Cheap Trick, A Flock of Seagulls, etc get excited! Featured throughout the record are members from these very bands, notably Simon Gallup, Wayne Hussey, Al Jourgensen, and Michael Aston.

Today we’re proud to premiere a fantastic cover track off of Finding Beauty In Chaos and one of my own personal favorites! Al Jourgensen covering T. Rex’s “20th Century Boy” in true Ministry-esque fashion. Obviously this is an example of the “chaos” part of the title.

September 24, 2018

Upon listening to the 14 tracks on the album, it was a delight to discover such diversity between them, clearly the outcome of some great head-to-head writing between Ciravolo and his various collaborators. Here we find offerings covering indie rock and post-punk to dark wave and hard rock. ‘Man of Faith’ itself is an epic track that any lover of these genres must hear, with a sound that is as sweet as any Mission or Cure track.

 

Dancing About Architecture: Finding Beauty in Chaos –  Beauty in Chaos

September 18, 2018

Personally it feels as if someone has snuck in to my house, rummaged through my vinyl collection to see what I like and brought a large selection of those bands and artists together to make an album just for me. They even put everything back in the right place afterwards.
