The Korea could easily be considered a Djent band considering their incisive, spacey composition and technical approach. In some ways this release is more sterile while simultaneously more open than what you may expect. That sounds like a contradiction, but upon a single listen you’ll see that it holds weight. They have a sharper edge through parts of the writing and production while experimenting openly in other regards. This can be heard when the bells toll on “Saturnus” and through sections of my personal favorite “Poles” especially. All three tracks have something to offer listeners from the chaotic and moshworthy to the melodic segments.
As I’ve said, this a good album all things considered. It brings quality and heaviness together while adding truth to the saying “big things come in small packages”. You can sample two of the hard hitting tracks above. And if you enjoy what you’re hearing, be sure to support The Korea with a purchase right here! I’m sure these guys have more up their sleeves so stay tuned for future music!
