TESA is a three-piece band from Riga / Latvia which tries not to classify
their style of playing in any particular way, giving the listener a free choice of interpretation, by
mixing different styles and sub-genres, creating something unique and passionate.
Their releases demonstrate passion for experiments with genres and sound textures, mixing dark melodies with feathery soundscapes, ambiences, psychedelic loops and even noise music, abstracting themselves from mainstream standards of heavy music. Previously released albums Tagad, Nekad and Heartbeatsfromthesky have gained recognition as fresh take on the todayís metal music.
Tesa leaves a big impression on whoever sees them performing. Neurosis invited the band to support their European shows in 2016 the second time after 2013.
Ghost is mastered by James Plotkin (SunnO), Electric Wizard and many more).
So noisy, so hateful, so distressing - what is there not to love? Some people prefer the other collaboration between Full of Hell and The Body, but we need not speak of such blasphemies here. The soundscapes here are not really compelling in the sense that you WANT to repeatedly listen to them, but they are in fact utterly compelling in that you NEED to listen to them over and over until you achieve catharsis. Call this experimental noise metal or call it something else, but listen. Ippocalyptica
