Opaal is a three piece band from Bogota, Colombia who formed in 2015.  Opaal play a tense, discordant, and chaotic style of instrumental punk and noise rock.  Musically, Opaal can be said to be influenced by bands such as New Brutalism, Shellac, Big Black, Oxes, and early AmRep style noise rocks.  Accentuating the band's sound is the use of harsh electronics, which adds an added layer of tension to the band's already discordant song.  Krakatoa is the band's debut EP, which was released on February 17th, 2017.  On Krakatoa, Opaal offer up six tracks of blown-out, harsh, and noise damaged instrumental punk and noise rock.  Overall, Krakatoa makes for a great listen and definitely should not be missed.  Great stuff!  Enjoy!
