Eindhoven quartet, Komatsu, reveal their powers of mass construction and resurrect a rare desert flower in their forthcoming album Rose of Jericho. Light meets heavy and desolation meets beauty in the nine powerful songs that make up their fourth LP.
Rose of Jericho combines a lyrical depth that resonates the current (political) rabbitholes with dark, groovy, warm riffs supporting rugged vocals. The sound of the album is a real mixture between Stoner and Metal, but with melodic and choral vocal lines. Change of tempo and rhythm, keep the listener glued to the speakers until the very last note of the album. Our track premiere, ‘Call Of The Wolves’ draws you in with an insistent, syncopated bass line before flowering into its full doom-infused beauty.
Komatsu is Mo Truijens (vocals/guitar), Mathijs Bodt (guitar), Martijn Mansvelders (bass) and Jos Roosen (drums).
Rose of Jericho will be released on Februrary 5, 2021 on Heavy Psych Sounds
