I’m equal parts excited and honoured to bring lang, from Tokyo, Japan’s phenomenal 2nd full-length ‘there is no reply, but sweet wind blew’ to your attention. I can’t recall the last time I’ve experienced so many legitimate chills and ‘what the hell!!! moments’ from a single listen; this is a genuine definition of an undiscovered gem in the screamo world. A downright emotional rollercoaster of an album, where all 8 tracks effortlessly merge post-hardcore, emotional screaming and spoken-word, with densely layered guitars, often exploding into chaotic breakdowns that are still flooring me after months of regular listening. Dedicate half an hour of your time to this album at your earliest convenience.
Discoveries like Lang is the reason why I’m still running this label after 10 years.
