Originating from just north of the polar circle, Kollwitz return with their second album of grandiose and distinct post-metal. Following their praised debut Like Iron I Rust from 2010. UK press by Jerry Graham Publicity. Bodo/Norway's Kollwitz has returned. Emerging from a five year self-imposed seclusion, the quintet will unleash their sophomore LP, Dissonance on March 16th. Dissonance is the long-awaited follow up to their 2010 debut, Like Iron I Rust. On that release, the world was introduced to Kollwitz's terse and beautiful sonic vision. A balancing act of grandiose post-rock atmospherics with sludgy post-hardcore menace. Like Iron I Rust was praised by such outlets as Rock Sound and Terrorizer. The latter outlet proclaiming the band's glacially paced sonic epics went "from Peaceful moments dripping with anticipation to full-blown anguished roars delivered over rolling crescendos that devastate as much as they inspire." However on Dissonance, an album which is entirely self-produced, the songs are shorter, sharper and perhaps more unsettling. A joint statement credited to the band doesn't mince any words regarding the new music and its creation: "We have fought against this record for over four years. Insecurity, disagreement and inconsistent goals have led the process. Dissonance is dissonant music created in dissonant circumstances. We consciously went for a more aggressive, repetitive and focused sound that does not over-indulge. In the end Dissonance is a dirtier yet more powerful statement than our previous record." « hide
