Transcending the current crop of heavy music imitators, Minsk bleed their tribal conviction with an atmosphere of total psychedelic delirium. Hypnotic percussion thunders beneath thickly layered guitars as synths and samples provide a backdrop for searing melodies and deeply spiritual vocal ruminations. Superbly produced at the Volume Recording Studio by bassist/vocalist Sanford Parker (Pelican, Unearthly Trance), The Ritual Fires of Abandonment is a profound and provocative experience that will have an intense and lasting impact on all who dare approach.
Scattered between the sleepy city of Peoria and metropolis of Chicago, Illinois, and drawing inspiration from a remote Belarusian city that has been burned to the ground only to be rebuilt like a phoenix rising from its own ashes, MINSK is an enigmatic collection of opposites. The music is at once modern, organic, and other-worldly; songs are stirring sonic journeys.
