Swedish Colossus sets the mood for this Saturday, true to their name, this powerful trio performs a headstrong metal with roots deep in the impenetrable mire of the stoner/doom/sludge tradition nuansed with streaks of progressive rock, post metal and psychadelica.
A wide blend of influences are entwined and results in an accomplished and coherent music that is as direct and powerful as it is multi layered and meandering. Names that are commonly mentioned in relation to Colossus are Mastodon, Neurosis, Kyuss and Tool.
In spring 2012 Colossus entered Top Floor Studios and came out with a heavy and organic full length debut that not only outshines the EP on every topic but aims for a whole other level of musical composition and soundscape. The album has been mixed by Pontus Norgren and is guested by Lars G Petrov of Entombed and drummer extraordinaire Morgan Ågren of Mats/Morgan Band, Frank Zappa.
Todays tune "Pillars of Perennity" (featuring Lars G Petrov "Entombed") it's taken from the upcoming album "Wake", is an album that I really look forward to, of course on the real format Vinyl "Hint".
