Hey! Listen to Kosmokrator!

I don’t know about you, but a lot of those “hybrid-genre” bands out there fail to impress me. There are tons of them today, too; bands who consider their music to be some blend of death and doom (death-doom), or black and death (blackened death) or what have you. Granted, some bands can do it right—Behemoth in my mind being the best example—but the ratio of musicians that do it right compared to those who don’t isn’t very proportional. So when a band releases music that manages to tug at a couple of big genres at once successfully, it’s worth paying attention. Kosmokrator is this band, fresh out of Belgium with their debut album/demo (sources vary on what it exactly is) To The Svmmit.
