UK psychedelic sludge-metal band Kurokuma have announced details of their debut album ‘Born of Obsidian’ which is set for release on 4th Feb. The band have shared the first single Jaguar which explores “Olmec shamans who, it was believed, could transform into a jaguar”
The band comment: “After years of silent gestation, our first full length will finally emerge into the blinding light of corporeal existence. The five songs that make up this album stand both unified and distinct, creating an edifice that transcends the moment and speaks to the raw nature of the universe. So turn your back on the madness; seek this column of unseen truth and elevate yourself from the primordial chaos in which you dwell.”
The track bursts out of a tribal groove morphing into a psychedelic feedback-drenched guitar solo with a steady hypnotic beat throughout. Guttural animal sounding vocals and stabs of heavy guitar send the track off into various genre mash ups. The band have created something different here and it is bloody brilliant.
