Moscow’s Inok are exactly what I want to hear right now. Despite their very small following, the production values on everything from the actual songs to their photoshoots and artwork suggest some very big things coming from this band. The tune they sent is called “Exorcist,” and it is an absolutely huge progressive, symphonic tune with brutal, groovy riffs, virtuostic performances across the board, with the highlight by far being the melancholy clean passages. This is heavy and you should listen to it.
Stream “Exorcist” below, and hunger for more.
