Kowloon Walled City (2019)

Oakland, CA

Convulsing slowly at the border between noise-rock and post-metal lies the slow rot of Kowloon Walled City. The band’s rage is of the bleary-eyed, resigned variety, doled out at the sludge-clogged speed of inevitability. Their tunes are heavy enough to pop a vertebrae, but rendered with a thoughtful precision that keeps indifference at bay.
