Karhide - Colossus EP (2014)
Karhide's Colossus EP is a technically-inclined blend of doom and post-rock, surging with break-neck drumming and tension-wire guitar-work past the average bands in the post-metal grouping. Here, Karhide refuses to settle down or to sit still for a moment, remaining completely focused on unleashing as much raw energy and speed as it can in the four tracks they picked for inclusion. Despite being less than 20 minutes of material in all, the EP is surprisingly exhausting by the end of its run, with the non-stop excitation of the musicians daring the listener to keep up or eat dust. Personally, I just don't have the stamina to keep keep pace with the mad rush of their performance, but if you can, my hat is off to you.
