... SONANCE "Like ghosts"

SONANCE started a year and a few months ago and began to find its feet in early 2012, in front of a wall of amps and live visuals, the Bristolian 5 piece consists in :
Ben - guitar, screwdriver
Will - guitar, dictaphone, vocals
Tom - vocals
Chino - bass
Jamie - drums

"Like Ghosts"  is the first recording of SONANCE and  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 Emperor/Badalamenti/Janek Schaefer/Stapleton and Tibet/Gnaw Their Tongues / Abandon/ Khanate/ Corrupted, the band have made a promising impact via their live shows (see Youtube link below) and have a tour of the UK and Europe booked for March 2013:

Mar 19 - Bristol, UK
Mar 20 - Colchester, UK
Mar 21 - Ghent, Belgium
Mar 22 - Leiden, Netherlands
Mar 23 -Bruges, Belgium
Mar 24 - Antwerp, Belgium

If your into painful SLUDGE with heavy and loud dynamics, bleak soundscapes and droning parts, then devour now this great piece of  uncompromised stuff :
