Esoteric have a special place in my heart. I’m not often a proponent of the down-tempo, somewhat meandering nature of others in their genre, but given that their current drummer lives with my best friend I always have the time of day for them.
Their new record Paragon Of Dissonance is so ridiculously colossal that it spans two separate discs, despite being only six tracks long. That should give you some nature of how these guys go about music, and this girthy beast is a crushing, methodical monster that definitely deserves an investment of time.
Finnish rag Kaaos Zine have bagged themselves the stream of it, which you can catch over at their site here. If you can drag yourselves back off the floor after hearing it, you can grab it from Season Of Mist now!
