SONANCE is a 5-piece band from Bristol, UK and blend elements of doom, noise, sludge, drone and ambient.
Their debut offering, LIKE GHOSTS comes in two halves, totalling just under 42 minutes.
Each part is an atmospheric heaping of interwoven arrangements, detailed and droned stretches that subside into sludge filled chasms as the bass pushes you through the floor and lifts dust from the walls. The record was written and rehearsed in a confined practice room in which the waves of sound could literally be felt shuddering up through your lungs and out of your mouth.
So far drawing comparisons with latter era Scott Walker/Bohren & Der Club Of Gore/Godspeed You! Black Emporer/Badalamenti/Janek Schaefer/Stapleton and Tibet/Gnaw Their Tongues/Abandon/Khanate/Corrupted, the band have made a promising impact via their live shows.
Fold out cover, black vinyl in printed innersleeve, limited to 200 copies.
