On the 9th of March, Kosmogyr released their debut album called Eviternity.
Sadly, Lachryma Christi was too busy and it wasn't possible to post this review before the album came out. In any case, here is our opinion and we hope it helps whoever wants to know this band.
Kosmogyr are a duo, split between Prague and Shanghai and we had the chance to interview them here: https://lachrymachristizine.blogspot.pt/2018/02/interview-with-kosmogyr-pragueshanghai.html
As for the release, Eviternity, it has 9 tracks of pure emotion.
The intro is all instrumental, with a very melancholic and even sad melody. It makes you think of everything. All those things you want to think about but also all the negative aspects of your life you'd rather ignore they exist. That's how emotional it is.
When you get to the most introspective mood possible, a very fast and full of rage proper Black Metal tune comes in. Without warning. And it is so good.
The album keeps the same register all along, mixing some very angry music with vocals that suit each song with perfection.
There is still space for some more melancholy though.
The track Quiescent is extraordinary. Not necessarily better that the others, but very emotional and powerful.
In general, the idea you get is that these guys have been working together for a long time and perfecting it, and very well, until they got to this stage. Although this is only their debut album, this is the impression you get.
Eviternity is also full of goodness.
Refulgence is a sweet song, instrumental, that gives a bit of a break from the heaviness of the album, but which makes you keep the same state of mind as before and as after.
When you think it can't get better, it can. It does.
In fact, there isn't much of a novelty in this album, compared to what has been made, but that isn't absolutely necessary when it is good music, and this release is definitely very good.
