I have been looking for a band that is similar to Hesperian Death Horse since the release of Mrtav. Finally came across this release and it is utterly fantastic! Slightly brooding, nihilistic, and aggresively maintains the balance between outward disgust, existential confusion, and loathing without being a whinefest.
NO HAVEN have burst forth from the Melbourne underground with their punishing debut EP, COLOURS OF NOTHING.
Through the EP’s six tracks listeners are dragged through the depths of earthly agony and hellish misery.
While at times NO HAVEN bring to mind the punishing grind of GAZA or the sheer fury of Converge, they are best placed alongside Downfall Of Gaia, bosse-de-nage, Oathbreaker and The Secret -- bands exploring the new sonic territory opening up between black metal, hardcore and post-metal.
