07:08 - Joe Zombie Sumac should be added to the database. Supergroup featuring members of Isis, Baptists, Botch, and Old Man Gloom. Heavier than an elephant.
06:09 - Redn1ght Yeah, sometimes I feel like I spend too much time on /X/ type shit, call me crazy but hey. We all are crazy by some standard of society nowadays. :)
06:04 - ScreamingSteelUS 4:03 am and I've got class + errands + homework + administrative shit to be sorted out tomorrow, but it's a night to be awake for.
06:00 - Redn1ght Sometimes life can be an ass. Not sleeping and you are supposed to have some kind of a class today? >.> Totally forgot.
05:45 - ScreamingSteelUS That was the problem; I was working so hard on other things I didn't have time to kick back and criticize people. But now I've got my first publication of the new year under my belt.
Kauan is a relatively young band hailing from the steppes of Russia, and Lumikuuro is their debut. The band is comprised of Anton Belov, who plays every instrument except violin, which is helmed by Lubov Mushnikova. Kauan plays a really innovative type of neofolk/folk-doom, reminiscent of Empyrium, Uaral, and the like. Thankfully this genre is still so vast that Kauan's style is still completely independent of the aforementioned bands.
Don't let the rating fool you, because it's criminally underrated. It's also the only real folk doom album Kauan has made, so if you're into that subgenre then definitely check out this one and NOT their other albums because they are totally different (way more post-rock orientated and honestly quite boring compared to this glorious debut).
