Genre: Post Black/Hardcore
Usually when I see a musician consumed in different projects, being anxious and restless with participation in many and not necessarily related to each other genres, whether he is simply session, so his work is throughput or the result of these participations is not of consistent quality. In the other hand this fermentation when made with real artistic terms and not just for public relations, it’s very difficult not come to fruition. Members of Kalpa, despite their young age, have added their name to various bands and plethora of projects, always in the extreme sound, based mainly in the expression of feelings. They didn’t form a band to hit some chick nor declare themselves musicians rather that call them just lazy dudes. Great sound, that couldn’t be more contemporary, with a dirty sound resting the sludge and as a basis the post black, the sound of Kalpa will (basically already) touch diverse audience who may previously not have ever even heard such genres. Their music travels to worlds that Neurosis would have taken you, while the album could have been standing easily without vocals as instrumental. This is not to say that the vocals are lacking in any way. The screaming vocals, in the spirit of Converge, and the interpretation that makes you feel goosebumps in most parts of the tracks, makes listening redemptive. The vocal deliveries along with drumming are in my opinion the highlights of this mini album. The acquisition of Dissociation is imperative to dress musically our everyday life that suffocates with backdrop the urban environment.
