ilknap Great experimental piece spanning variety of genres. Darkness and insanity of the album reminds me of John Coltrane's Om.

Tolujin This might turn out to be my favourite album of the year. I don't want to talk about influences because I don't think it deserves to be pigeonholed that way. There is metal aggression and free-jazz freakery aplenty here, but there is also contemplation, lyricism and sumptuous tone, so that even over its lengthy running time it isn't exhausting the way some jazz/metal meetings can be. I think I'd travel quite a long way to hear these guys play. Favorite track: In A Grove.

about

The mysterious collective Kurushimi take listeners through a dark and deranged sonic journey on their Art As Catharsis debut.

This heavily improvised release pushes the boundaries of deconstructionist noise-jazz with departures into doom, grindcore, prog, dub and hip hop. The result is something like the unholy congress of Ornette Coleman, Morbid Angel, Bill Laswell, John Zorn and Bohren & Der Club Of Gore.
