The Czech Republic / China based black-metal duo Kosmogyr released their début single on the 25th.
Quiescent (available on bandcamp) is a cement liquefying just over six minutes of roaring menace. Opening with quiet harmony the listener is lulled in to a sense of security, until suddenly, like a car suffering from turbo lag a pulverising roar hurtles in to the room careening in a menacing furious pace. As the ears become accustomed, so, the slowly paced guitar melodic structure emerges from the throbbing tumult giving the sense of running at two distinct speeds and marks the track for its ability to deliver the unexpected whilst the distorted vocal provides these two elements in Quiescent their cohesive quality.
News also arrives of an LP due for release later in the year.
Those of longer stay will perhaps recall a Czech Republic and China tie up, based in Shanghai in the form of Death To Ponies – Ivan Belcic is the common thread.
