time 10. - reviews/opinions

I've reviewed releases from both Captain, Your Ship Is Sinking and Mio in the last year. Now the two combine to make up this split 12''. This is the product of five German labels that anyone into modern DIY emo / screamo should be keeping an eye on.Both bands contribute two songs to the record. CYSIS continue their combination of melodic post-rock hardcore and black metal like vocals - it is a pretty unique sound for which they deserve credit. The songs have a similar quality to those on the band's self titled LP so if you liked then then be sure to check this out. I'm not sure what else to say, it's certainly a fine way to spend thirteen minutes without being spectacular. I imagine that these guys are pretty damn good live. I, for one, like to get into the build ups and slightly repetitive nature that post rock has to offer (and is furthermore enhanced when seeing a band live), whilst generally enjoying music that involves people screaming their heads off. I think a fair bit must be lost when then recording these songs and putting them on a piece of vinyl. Mio play on the other side and their first song has a slow build up, before launching into the main part of the song. They match CYSIS very well - the instruments are a bit more driven and rockish whilst the vocals are still screamed but are a bit less harsh. Having said that, it gets very post-rock like on the second track. I like this but I just can't feel I would enjoy it more if it wasn't stretched out so much and they just played quickfire songs. Then again, that's just me and I suppose that style of music has pretty much been done to death. Overall, this is an enjoyable split that has plenty of things going for it. If you like any of the bands' previous output or enjoy drawn out emo / screamo be sure to investigate. Final comment: the artwork to this record freaks me out a little bit.
collective zine

CYSiS play post rock screamo with harsh screams. they like long songs, pretty bits and guitars. mio also like long songs, almost instrumentals, but they burst into furious explosions here and there. more on the emo side than screamo.

Both Bands contribute two songs to this wonderful split. Captain, your ship is sinking continue, where they stopped on their debut LP. Two long songs with great combination of slow, atmospheric parts followed by harder fast played parts, always with very catchy melodies. The Vocals swith between spoken and harsh screamed parts. On the split side mio contribute their best two songs so far. Different to their earlier releases these songs are much longer. This Duo(only guitar and drums) play some kind of 90s style. The records include a paper folded to a ship. This is also the booklet with lyrics and additional information.
moment of collapse

mio, a leipzig-based duo become a trio now! mio play emoish, lo-fi screamo with an idea of her breath on glass. nice, tuneful melodies change roots with heretic, nervous breakdowns, just lovely if you ask me. on the flipside, c,ysis! play an immensive wall of sound without losing a feeling of melody! their impressions go from envy to funeral diner. screamo at its best! all records come in heavy printed cardboardcovers with a playful made booklet.

Einige der feinsten deutschen Labels halfen dabei diesen Split rauszubringen. Als da wären: Adagio 830, Built on Friendship, Lala, Moment of Collapse und Time as a Color – nur damit anhand der obströsen Abkürzungen keine Verwirrung entsteht. Die Holländer von Captain, your Ship is sinking brachten letztes Jahr eine solide LP raus. Diese bestand allerdings nur aus den Demo-Songs von 2008. Umso gespannter konnte man sein, wie das neue Material der Band klingt. Und Captain, your Ship is sinking sind durchaus gereift. Wie so viele europäische Bands setzen sie weiterhin auf einen Mix aus Screamo und Postrock. "Godspeed to you, Pola Negri" ist ein melodiöses, ausgedehntes Stück, mit unterschwelligem Geschrei und verträumter Atmosphäre. Erinnert doch etwas an Envy, minus der extremen Ausbrüche. Streng betrachtet haben die Holländer mit Screamo gar nicht mehr viel am Hut. Der zweite Song mit dem überlangen Titel "Son, you sure you know what you are going to dig up when you open that grave?" ist für mich das Beste, dass die Combo bisher geschrieben hat. Die Stilmittel sind ähnlich, die Atmosphäre gänzlich anders. Hier zelebrieren die Holländer einen dunklen, depressiven Brocken, der sich schleppend entwickelt und in verlorener Atmosphäre ausklingt. Starker Song und ein Versprechen für die Zukunft! Auf der anderen Seite haben wir Mio aus Leipzig. Eine Band, die trotz ihrer kurzen Schaffenszeit schon verdammt viel aufgenommen hat. Neben einer 7inch gabs noch ein Split-Tape mit Alia und jüngst einen weiteren Split mit Duct Hearts. Ich kenne davon nur die Songs des Tapes. Und man merkt schnell, dass der rumpelige Proberaum-Sound für Mio ein Stilmittel ist. Denn auch auf dem Vinyl ändert sich nichts daran. Man mag sowas oder auch nicht. Eine gewisse Markanz gibt es den Leipzigern allemal! Stilistisch reihen sich dei beiden neuen Songs ebenfalls ein – das ist Mid9oies-Emo, der mich an Ordination of Aaaron, Indian Summer oder Drowning with our Anchors erinnert und von der Stimmung her stets grau bleibt. Schön finde ich, dass Mio mit ihrer Musik ein Gefühl erzeugen und statt Geschichten einfach nur ein paar passende Worte drüber legen. Die Lyrics sind mager, aber reichen vollkommen aus um das Gefühlte zu unterstreichen. Mehr braucht's nicht! Ähnlich wie bei ihren Splitpartnern ziehen Mio ihr Ding also weiterhin durch und sollten jeden Fan von depressivem Emo überzeugen. Das Artwork der LP ist übrigens auch sehr gut gelungen. Das Papierschiff zum Selbstfalten, das direkten Bezug aufs Cover nimmt, ist eine putzige Idee – auch wenn ich alter Bastelmuffel zu doof dafür bin. 6/10
