Band Feature: Minsk

I think the term “metalgaze” is starting to catch on for the genre started by Neurosis, and pioneered by Isis and Cult Of Luna (if we get used to using the term “metalgaze”m then people won’t need to name drop those 3 bands all the time).

I’ve always thought that Neurosis, Isis and Cult Of Luna had very unique sounds in comparison to one another. They do a lot of things in similar ways, long slow songs, hardcore vocals, keyboards and electronics added, with some of the instrumentation being based on simplicity. Yet while Neurosis, Isis and Cult Of Luna have all the same factors, they sound very different from one another. There have been some other bands coming out of the same mould, but with every band that comes out playing metalgaze, you start to get bands that get closer and closer to sounding like their peers.

Minsk is a band that arguably comes closest to sounding like Neurosis than any other metalgaze band I can think of. It’s a double edged sword of sorts, as their latest album “The Ritual Fires Of Abandonment” has gotten a lot of good reviews, suggesting that the band is good at executing what they do. The flip side is that there’s already Neurosis, and we are getting a lot more bands in the world of metalgaze. Still, the genre hasn’t seem a lot of bands, and there are bands attempting to bring their own variant to the table, letting Minsk get away with pulling of their Neurosis influenced parts so well.

Minsk released their latest album “The Ritual Fires Of Abandonment” through Relapse of February 20.
