Minsk is a band I have been into for a few years, they make their own interesting blend of metal, their music has a lot of different elements, heavy and punishing doom, mellow atmospheric layers, and things associated closest to progressive metal.
Here is a sample of the press release that was sent to us:
Revered progressive doom band Minsk and apocalyptic psychedelic metal band Zatokrev are joining forces for an record of epic proportions, called BIGOD, which will be released on October 5th with Consouling Sounds and Czar of Crickets.
“”The Chalice And The Dagger” is a snapshot into the world of paradox. Life is a disgusting grind, yet our experience vibrates with ecstasy and potentiality. This song hopes to present the hymn of the outlier; with the ragged beauty of navigating through the margins of existence. Can one truly love without also fully embracing the inevitability of death? Interpretation is invalid without context, and this song hopes to touch on the uncharted, and the established. While the hordes attempt to bury their sores, others choose to dive into the marrow, and the rewards remain infinite, and unnoticed.” – Minsk
Two bands from two continents, two very different worlds and histories, but in many ways they have occupied parallel universes. Both have forged their own paths forward for over fifteen years. Both have released four albums. Both seek transcendence and deep places in their explorations, uncompromising in their vision, both reveling in their beautiful noise.
