ДЖРС III

Troisième album pour le groupe russe Jars et c’est la guerre. Un ravage complet, aller-retour, pour être certain que plus personne ne respire. Anton Obrazeena, chanteur, guitariste et seul membre permanent de Jars, a encore changé de partenaires avec l’arrivée d’un nouveau bassiste et batteur mais la ligne de conduite est toujours aussi féroce. D’ailleurs, six des dix compos (pour une raison inconnue, uniquement neuf titres sont en écoute sur les différents bandcamp du groupe et des labels, il manque The Best Festival, superbe titre ouvrant l’album) sont créditées avec l’ancienne formation. Il ne faut donc pas s’attendre à des bouleversements par rapport au précédent album sauf que les temps ne sont pas à la gaudriole, encore moins quand tu vis dans ce coin du monde où le sentiment de liberté est inversement proportionnel à l’immensité du pays.
Alors Jars accentue la dose de fureur, de dépit, de cris et d’éclats bruitistes à la hauteur de l’énorme frustration qui semble les habiter. Les riffs brûlent la peau, hachent menu, construisent un mur de lacérations aussi incisif que tourmenté. Le chant est particulièrement enragé et densifie bien l’espace dès qu’il en a l’occasion. La rythmique pilonne sans compter. L’impression que ça débarque de partout mais que Jars sait parfaitement où il va. Car ce disque n’est pas un mélange de noise, punk et hardcore qui en plein la vue gratuitement, bourrine allègrement et met le feu comme un pyromane en manque cruel de barbecue.
Jars fait mal mais avec justesse et en prenant soin de composer de véritables morceaux qui n’ont pas fini de vous poursuivre avec ces mélodies en fusion et des accroches imparables comme sur Sick, Mr. Visionaire ou Ultramarathon avec son décrochage juteux en plein milieu de la course pour prendre un grand bol d’air salvateur. Des morceaux qui fument les plus trépidants morceaux de Metz. Avec une dimension incontrôlable, sale et méchante supplémentaire et que tout peut arriver. Et d’ailleurs ça arrive. En version courte avec les courts missiles trash-punk Mr. Visionary et Speedcop et surtout en version longue. Jars aime sortir son noise-rock mouvant vers des contrées sauvages, plus expérimentales et à l’issue fulgurante une fois le champ magnétique du chaos franchi. C’est le cas avec Which Empire Are You ? entrecoupé de nombreuses et perturbantes secondes de silence alors que ça raffûte grave entre temps. Mechanism et le saxo d’Anton Ponomarev venant souligner d’une bonne bourrasque toute la noire beauté de ce somptueux titre. I Need Enemies jouant admirablement bien sur les contrastes, la lourdeur et le pouvoir épique dont Jars est capable tout au long de l’album. Et enfin, les dix minutes de Moscow Doesn’t Believe In Tears, immense plaque tectonique remplie de fractures, de secousses et une inclination qui va vers le plus en plus lent pour finir par mourir de sa belle mort après d’ultimes sursauts rageurs. Un grand disque de noise-rock, la confirmation qu’on tient là un groupe qui n’a strictement rien à envier à ses homologues américains et de partout ailleurs dans ce bas monde pour un nom qui devrait être sur toutes les lèvres.

On their third full-length album JARS turn away from straight-forward politicised punk rock of "Подлог" (Forgery) EP to more complicated sound and personal lyrics, keeping their recognisable anger and loudness. Since the latest release and a month-long tour from Russia to Portugal and back, the band's line-up changed by two-thirds. With their new drummer Mikhail Rackaev and bassist Pavel Orlov JARS sound melodic and groovy, sometimes even blending funk influences, while guitar and vocals by Anton Obrazeena stay ugly, abrasive and sharp, reminding of Shellac, Drive Like Jehu and Årabrot. The first half of new record rushes forward with hardcore punk and metal-infused riffs; the band literally builds walls of noise like Swans or My Bloody Valentine do. After the "Ultramarathon" things get darker and slower, ending with a 10-minute epic "Moscow does not believe in tears", which deals with morbid themes like domestic violence and stalking. All in all, this album is a highlight in Jars discography, and they know it, giving the release just a twisted russian version of a band's name with a number – ДЖРС III.
Band bio
Jars is a Moscow-based trio, whose music is not for the faint of heart: the band's style of noise-rock is ferocious, relentless and vicious. The sound they produce takes you back to the 1990s and makes you think you're dealing with the signees of Amphetamine Reptile, possibly the most influential record label for the genre. Although, stylistically Jars reminds of their implacable Western brethren, their catchy lyrics are written in Russian and tell stories about a life of a "small man", who's aspiring his dreams despite the amount of consumed substanses and daily routine.
Formed in 2011, Jars have released 3 albums and 2 EPs, played in the cities from Lisbon on the west to Ulaanbaatar and Vladivostok on the east and shared stage with such acts as Melt Banana, Iceage, The Garden, '68, The Wytches, Raketkanon and many more. The band's frontman, Anton, was also one of the organizers of Moscow's Troyka fest, a short documentary about which was published on pitchfork.com

REVIEWS:
JARS have popped more than once on appreciation threads regarding non-American noise rock on the Internet (along with other Russian bands like uSSSy), so I kinda knew they will be good even before listening to it for the first time. For the uninitiated, JARS is a Moscow-based trio, whose music is not for the faint of heart: the band’s style of noise-rock is ferocious, relentless and vicious. That said, this band is absolutely crushing with their latest ДЖРС III album.
Perfectly executed nine tracks without losing the chaotic loose feeling of punk. Tight riffs all around the record, lots of dramatic changes and overall powerful songwriting. JARS blend a lot of details to create their own sound, and the result is a truly crushing record front to back. ДЖРС III offer more complicated sound and personal lyrics, keeping their recognisable anger and loudness. The edge of the sound takes you back to the 1990s, a harsh and gritty, hypnotic form of noise punk not unlike Amphetamine Reptile signers of the time.
The first half of the record rushes forward with a torrent of hardcore punk and metal-infused riffs, blended with walls of noise a la Swans or MBV. There is also a killer sax (?) solo in “Mechanism”—a real free jazz moment! Seventh track “Мне нужны враги” (I need enemies) offers killer riffing in the vein of the Melvins/Bleach-era Nirvana, combined with moody melodic vocals for even more direct impact! This one is truly a highlight of the album for me.
Half-way through the record things get darker and slower, ending with a 10-minute epic “Moscow does not believe in tears”, which deals with morbid themes like domestic violence and stalking. I really enjoy that JARS choose to have their lyrics in their native language, Russian really gives the songs a distinct sound. When it comes to the content of those lyrics, JARS say they are “about the life of a ‘small man’, who’s aspiring his dreams despite the amount of consumed substances and daily routine”.
Formed in 2011, the band has released three albums and two EPs along the way, toured plenty and played in cities from Lisbon on the West to Ulaanbaatar and Vladivostok on the East, sharing the stage with bands like Melt Banana, Iceage, The Garden, ’68, The Wytches, Raketkanon and so on. Since their latest release followed by a month-long tour from Russia to Portugal and back, the band’s line-up changed by two-thirds. Anton Obrazeena (guitar & vocals) is now joined by new drummer Mikhail Rackaev and Pavel Orlov on bass, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t as good as ever.
Overall, ДЖРС III is an amazing record, listening to their previous stuff I can say they achieved to write and record some next level shit! I would really like to catch this band live someday!

(...) After two full-length albums and two EPs, Jars has a great, noisy sound, sort of Amphetamine Reptile, with jangly guitars. The band covers a lot of ground on this new record, going from unexpected, obnoxious walls of sound and aggression to in-the-pocket grooves and moody riffs. There’s even a part that sounds like it’s coming from the sax of John Zorn. (...)
disposableunderground.com/jars-return-with-new-album-iii

"If two previous albums by JARS sounded like a romance between noise and garage-rock, this one – is their marriage. It’s different comparing with two previous albums – different degree of intensity and a certain radicalism presented in the chaotic-half of the record".
louderthanwar.com/jars-iii-album-review/

(...) Az idén a JARS - ДЖРС III az egyik, hanem a legjobb noise - rock - metal - postHc "izé" lemez, amit hallottam. Nem okozott csalódást, sőt a tagcserék ellenére a fegyelmem középpontjában fog maradni! Nem egyszerű anyag, de nagyon jó.(...)
komakino.blog.hu/2020/12/21/jars_iii

(...) On the whole this a fantastic release and definitely one of my highlights of the past two weeks. If you're a fan of hardcore or noise then definitely give this bad boy a listen, I guarantee that at the very least you'll be stimulated by it.(...)

I actually covered Jars—a Russian trio led by guitarist/vocalist Anton Obrazeena—in another roundup earlier this year, and now they're back with a new rhythm section for full-length #3. And, once more, expect some seriously powerful and well-produced noise rock excellence. This band is so damn good and truly deserves wider appreciation. They just nail so many of the qualities that I look for when it comes to this particular niche: great songwriting pinned down by a hard-hitting rhythm section with a rock-solid bass presence, jagged guitar runs with apt fits of dissonance, etc. This album offers increased diversity, though, and the vocals feel a little more vicious this time out as well. From the minute-long mangled hardcore Converge-isms of "Mr. Visionary" to the pounding 10-minute behemoth "Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears," ДЖРС III is most definitely "noise rock plus"!

(...) Jars – Always a little concerning when you don’t know what they’re singing or shouting about but hey let’s start off from a position of trust and hope there is nothing but good in what they’re shouting about. DO like the bounce, they do sound like a band who should be on a label called Pogo. “On their third full-length album Jars turn away from straight-forward politicised punk rock of “Подлог” (Forgery) EP to more complicated sound and personal lyrics, keeping their recognisable anger and loudness. Since the latest release and a month-long tour from Russia to Portugal and back….” read on via their Bandcamp page. Apparently the Moscow-based trio “tell stories about a life of a “small man”, who’s aspiring his dreams despite the amount of consumed substances and daily routine”. Got to like that 90’s flavoured AmRep influenced sound – they cite the Amphetamine Reptile sound themselves (...)

On their third full-length JARS may have turned away from politicised punk rock of the “Подлог” EP to a more complicated sound that is coupled with personal lyrics, but they have retained their recognisable anger and loudness. Since their last release the band’s line-up has changed, with their new members, drummer Mikhail Rackaev and bassist Pavel Orlov, JARS sound melodic and groovy, sometimes even blending funk influences, whilst the guitar and vocals by Anton Obrazeena stay ugly, abrasive and sharp. The album has been given twisted version of a band’s Russian name with a number “ДЖРС III“, the album closes with the ten minute epic ‘Москва слезам не вери (Moscow Does Not Believe In Tears)‘, which deals with themes of domestic violence and stalking.

J'en parlais la semaine dernière et il est déjà là : l'album de Jars, noise rock de Russie, est disponible et il est très bien. Le groupe propose une musique très personnelle - ressenti augmenté par le chant en russe - avec de vrais moments de bravoure comme la partie de sax sur le morceau en écoute cette semaine.

Jars is a three piece band from Москва, Russia who formed in February of 2011. Jars play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of post hardcore, punk, grunge, and noise rock within their sound. Musically, Jars can be loosely compared to bands such as AmRep era Helmet, Unsane, Metz, The Jesus Lizard, Melvins, Pigs, War Brides, Ken Mode, Coilguns, and other like-minded bands. Since forming in 2011, Jars have released a self-titled LP in September of 2011, a seven song Live LP titled Live In Vilnius in April of 2012, a six song LP titled A Moveable Feast in January of 2013, a two song EP titled Arms/Shelter in December of 2014, an eight song LP titled No in April of 2015, a ten song LP titled Live in Vilnius in July of 2016, a four song EP titled Kotobus in November of 2016, a nine song LP titled ДЖРС II in April of 2018, a nine song LP titled Vilnius III in April of 2019, a five song EP titled ПОДЛОГ in August of 2019, and a fourteen song LP titled ДЖРС II / JRS II in October of 2019. ДЖРС III is the band's latest LP, was released via Pogo and Forbidden records on December 11th, 2020. On ДЖРС III, Jars offer up nine tracks of killer post hardcore, punk, grunge, and noise rock. Overall, ДЖРС III makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed. Highly recommended! Enjoy!

(...) Aunque estilísticamente Jars recuerda a sus implacables hermanos occidentales, sus pegadizas letras están escritas en ruso y cuentan historias sobre la vida de un "hombre pequeño", que aspira a sus sueños a pesar de la cantidad de sustancias consumidas y la rutina diaria. (...)

Em seu terceiro álbum completo, a JARS se afasta das letras Punk Rock diretas e politizadas para manter o som "ríspido". Desde o último lançamento e da sua pequena turnê de um mês da Rússia para Portugal e vice-versa, a formação da banda mudou em dois terços. Com seu novo baterista Mikhail Rackaev e o seu novo baixista Pavel Orlov, JARS começa a soar mais melódico e com mais groovy, às vezes até mesclando influências Funk, enquanto a guitarra e os vocais de Anton Obrazeena continuam feios, abrasivos e afiados, lembrando Shellac, Drive Like Jehu e Årabrot.
A primeira metade do novo álbum avança com o Punk e o Hardcore com riffs de infusão diretos do metal; a banda literalmente constrói paredes com ruídos como Swans ou My Bloody Valentine fazem. Depois da "Ultramaratona", as coisas ficaram um pouco mais sombrias e lentas, terminando com um épico de 10 minutos "Москва слезам не верит _ Moscow does not believe in tears", que trata de temas mórbidos como a violência doméstica e perseguição. Em suma, este álbum é um destaque na discografia do JARS, e eles sabem disso, dando ao lançamento apenas uma versão russa extremamente distorcida do nome de uma banda com um número - ДЖРС III.

Noisecore, der seinen Noise melodiös unterfüttert und seinen Core amtlich grooven lässt: Ihr erst drittes Album rotzen Jars aus Moskau heraus, und es ist eine herrliche Freude, dieser Eruption von Rock’n’Roll im unklassischen Sinne beizuwohnen. Ein reines Rotzen ist das hier aber nicht: Breaks, Dynamik, Riffs, klare Passagen und ein Saxophonsolo zerstreuen den Lärm und das Geschrei. Eine schlechte Laune, die gute Laune macht!
Und das ist nur ein Trio, da hört man’s wieder, welche Kraft von so wenig Musikern ausgehen kann! Sänger und Gitarrist Anton Obrazeena, Schlagzeuger Mikhail Rackaev und Bassist Pavel Orlov sind die drei, aus denen Jars bei dieser Veröffentlichung besteht, und die rumpeln ein Brett von einem Album zusammen, das trotz seiner Lautstärke und Gewalt nicht verbergen kann, um was für begnadete Musiker es sich dabei handelt. Punktgenaue Breaks, die in „Какая ты империя? / Which Empire Are You?“ auch mal mehrere Sekunden dauern können, dazu eine bassgetriebene Dynamik, ein akzentuiertes Schlagzeug und eine fuzzy Gitarre, dazu gebrüllte, geschrieene, ausgekotzte Texte auf Russisch, und in dieser fein designten Lärmarchitektur lassen die drei Raum für Melodien, Soli, Brüche und sogar Schönheit.
„Механизм / Mechanism“ ist so ein Beispiel. Eher dem Indierock als dem Post-Hardcore zugeneigt, mit klarer Gitarre und klarem, teilweise mehrstimmigem Gesang sowie einem treibenden Schlagzeug beginnt es, flirrt dann bald räudig los und öffnet sich für einen Gastbeitrag: Anton Ponomarev von Бром und dem Speedball Trio spielt das noisige Saxophon, und dieser Link ist nicht so verwunderlich, wenn man weiß, dass Obrazeena mit jenem Saxophonisten erst jüngst ein experimentelles Freejazzalbum mit dem eindeutigen Titel „Massacre“ einspielte.
Diese Art von Noisecore, No Wave, Post-Hardcore ist eher ein US-amerikanisches Thema, und man meint in vielen Songs vertraute Originale herauszuhören, jedoch nie eindeutig, dafür sind Jars zu eigen. Oder erinnert ein Stück wie „Мне нужны враги / I Need Enemies“ nicht doch etwas an die Swans, mit seinem heavy Stampfen zwischen dem Lärm (wohl nicht zufällig verweist das Cover der Jars-Single „Arms/Shelter“ auf das des Swans-Albums „Filth“)? Hört man nicht irgendwo die späten Fugazi, die frühen Ritual Tension, die Melvins oder gar Black Sabbath heraus? Egal: „ДЖРС III“ rüpelt eigenständig genug, um solche Erinnerungen auszublenden.
Freundlich übrigens, dass auf diesem Album auch Stücke enthalten sind, an denen ausgeschiedene Bandmitglieder mitgearbeitet hatten. An Alexander Seleznev und Vladimir Veselik richtet die gegenwärtige Besetzung Dank und Grüße – das ist mehr als fair. Zwar ist dies erst das dritte Album von Jars, aber mindestens die 17. Veröffentlichung: Auf der Bandcamp-Seite gibt es noch haufenweise EPs und Livemitschnitte.
