(FR) Rostres-Les Corps Flottants LP (2018)

Country: France
Genre: Post Metal, Post Hardcore, Post Rock
Label: Wooaaargh!
Tracks: 7
Length: 47.0'

Dynamic French duo ROSTRES present their first full length album 'Les Corps Flottants', a journey through turgid sludge, post-rock and shoegaze. Think of a slowed down Pelican or sped up Neurosis and you will have the right idea.

These guys create huge atmosphere through pure riffage and towering, crashing drums alone. The album is fully instrumental as is often the case in this genre but that is not to it's detriment, the dynamics of the performance and at times lyrical lead guitar/synth/even string patterns wandering back and forth across the riff gives the ear everything it could want.

This is an exceptional 'post' album with a variety of sounds to both punish and reward the listener! The primary tone here can be defined as 'BIG'. These are towering, monumental riffs supported by thunderous drums and given a sense of space with glittering effect drenched noise, juxtaposed against swathes of open ground, breathing and building room until the next mountain of noise for the listener to climb.  (Press Note)

*Damn this is some killer instrumental post metal, post hardcore, and post rock for fans of Year Of No Light, Lightbearer, Pelican, Mon, Mogwai, and Russian Circles.  Great stuff!  Enjoy!
