Checkout Counter: Zatokrev

There’s been a pleasant growth of the genre inspired by Neurosis. At this point in time, the BNR Metal Pages define this genre as “atmospheric hardcore”, and Decibel Magazine has referred to it as “metalgaze”. I’ve also read publications which refer to this genre as a form of “post-hardcore”. Zatokrev is a Swiss band who fits right along with those bands inspired by Neurosis, with the focal point on being very heavy as well as building an atmosphere of emotion.
