🌶️ Kauan - Ice Fleet
(folk/doom/post from Russia, listen
An exceptionally immersive, compelling and atmospheric affair. Look at the boat on the cover, and imagine yourself on your back on the deck, the motor turned off, and not a worry in the world.
🌶️ Zao - The Crimson Corridor
(math/metalcore from the USA, listen
Coming and rising beyond the *gasp* christian metalcore scene, Zao are one of the most interesting bands from that corner, to me. Knotty, jumpy and experimental, but super sludgy here and there.
