‘3’ is the first release by the guys of ‘kurouma’, blending elements of doom & sludge into their mix of post-metal music.
‘From Dust’ is a brilliant opener, giving you a feel of what to expect from the rest of the EP. It’s the shortest track on the EP but they almost seem determined to fit all their styles into this condensed space, and it works really well. Howling vocals, technical guitar play backed with a talented drummer.
The EP has a flow to it as all the songs pick up where the last one left off.
The best tracks of the EP would have to be ‘Through the Darkness’ & ‘Into the Ocean’. The bands ability to transcend from soft to heavy in a matter of moments is amazing.
Can’t find a fault with this EP and since it’s free it would make for a great present over the festive break.
