[ B O L T ] + LAVAS MAGMAS • Song premiere and pre-order [VIDEO]
The artists join forces on “[ 1 7 ] / Shadow of a Grey Ghost,” with [ B O L T ]’s haunting melodic sensibilities acting as a backbone for weighty feedback orchestration and an increasing amount of electronic textural accents, before eventually settling down into a welcome epilogue that offers moments of rest after the immersive exploration of mounting volume that marks the track’s first three-quarters.

We Lost The Sea • 'Triumph & Disaster' (first song premiere and pre-order)

By Wout Lievens

We Lost The Sea • 'Triumph & Disaster' (first song premiere and pre-order)
Triumph & Disaster is a post-apocalyptic view on the collapse of the world told like a children’s story and illustrated through the eyes of a mother and her son as they spend one last day on Earth. In this album we try to talk about themes and events such as the climate crisis, over consumption, isolation, and the loss of love and trust. It is a lament for our planet, all of us on it and the beauty we will leave behind.

Girih • Eigengrau [LP pre-order]

By Wout Lievens

Girih • Eigengrau [LP pre-order]

"It is a rare and exciting opportunity to come across a band that is working as a virtually unknown entity but with a fully-realized sonic aesthetic. Girih is just such a band. Having cut their teeth in the Boston scene in bands like Actor | Observer, Shot Heard Around The World and Next To Fall, the members of Girih come into this project well-seasoned and ready to unleash the next evolution of their collective musical journey. Already building a reputation in the greater Boston area for a startlingly powerful live performance, Girih is now prepared to make their debut to the world.



Eigengrau is a 6-song Masters' class in dynamic textures and forceful riffing. It features an uncanny and intoxicating balance of the driving aggression of post-metal and the graceful melody of post-rock, with just a dash of the fretboard wizardry common to math rock. It's this ability to blend styles that sets Girih a notch above; avoiding the one-note pitfalls inherent in prescribing to a single genre style, they invite a larger audience to appreciate the work they've created. Their heavily-textured sound translates impressively to their live performance, boosted by their expert use of looping and layering on stage. Beyond their finely-tuned aural tapestry, they find other ways to engage fans by planting secrets and Easter eggs within their visual material, leading ultimately to a number of intriguing buried treasures. But you'll have to explore further to discover what that's all about." — A1KA Music
