Origin Point:

Sounds Like:
Post Metal, Instrumental, Sludge, Progressive, Post Rock, Cinematic

Kokomo is a relatively recent addition to the post-metal landscape, hailing from the industrial west of Germany. Their lush, dense sound is interwoven with cinematic sampling, particularly evident in their first release. Their second offering, If Wolves, is a veritable tour-de-force of the genre - as well as having some outstanding cover art. I mean, who doesn't like bears and geometry? On this and beyond, their sound is much more refined and it benefits from this transition. Definitely recommended to those who enjoy noisy instrumental music.

To listen to their music, simply click on the album covers to be taken to their respective pages.

Now, I know the discussion of music can be an emotionally charged subject for some people, but I'm not claiming that anything is better than anything else. This is no more than a soap-box for me to promote music that I enjoy; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. That's fine.

If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself.
