Yesterday, I had the chance to offer smallish reviews of a number of physical CDs that have arrived at progarchy HQ. Today, I continue with part II.
First up, Krakow’s MINUS. I must note, there’s nothing that Norway’s Karisma label releases that doesn’t interest me. The label is one of the best up-and-coming labels out there, offering everything from shoe-gaze prog to black metal. As far as I know, Krakow fits into something more akin to black metal than it does into shoe-gaze prog. I’ve asked metal master, Mahesh, to review this, as I’m simply not capable of understanding what’s going on. I like what I hear, but I have no reference for it. it just seems impenetrably dark to me. Not in a bad way. In fact, I like it. But, listening to it is akin to me listening to Hindi. I like the sounds, I just don’t have a clue what’s going on.
