Tolujin Very little point trying to describe this one, all I can say is it's like nothing else I've heard but also like everything I've heard all at once, almost as if your sleeping brain made a dream out of all the music you've ever loved. Genuinely daring and original.

Richter I don't know what I'm listening to and I doubt I'll ever know and that is A-okay; I suspect even Moonboat themselves do not know . . . Favorite track: lightningpattern.

smithist this is a weird album. I either expect it to be all ambient and am surprised by the vocals, or the other way around. fantastic music in a style I'm just uninitiated to

about

Art As Catharsis is proud to announce 'Spirit Panther' by Moonboat; an utterly unique piece of experimental, blackened hardcore.

'Spirit Panther' is difficult to define; blurring the boundaries between noise, hardcore and blackened post-metal. Beauty and dread come in equal measure; ethereal vocals soar over clanging guitars; piercing shrieks punctuate periods blackened fury; and in rare moments of reprieve, sonic textures wash over empty spaces.

The production of 'Spirit Panther' occurred in various locations across Australia and Japan. Moonboat utilised an experimental production process; recording semi-improvised jams then later glitching, looping, overdubbing and gradually transforming those original recordings.

The effect is as mesmerizing as it is unique.

'Spirit Panther' is inspired by mountains and the full moon; star gates and damaged tapes; a striving for true freedom amidst the futility of life.

Distant echoes of Neurosis, Converge, Wolf Eyes, Dark Throne and Boards of Canada may be heard by discerning listeners.
