Karamazov are a solo project from Minnesota that plays a mixture of post metal, hardcore, rock, noise and ambient and this is a review of his self released 2017 ep "Self-Control: 23:28" which will be released in August.
Electronic music sounds start off the ep along with some drum beats a few seconds later and the music also incorporates a decent amount of industrial elements and after awhile post rock style guitars are added onto the recording and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them.
Some of the tracks are instrumental while the synths mix in elements of ambient and on the second track elements of metal and post hardcore style vocals are added onto the recording along with some melodic guitar leads and clean singing is also used briefly while another track also adds in a small amount of saxophones and elements of noise are added onto the closing track.
Karamazov plays a musical styles that takes post metal, hardcore, rock, noise and ambient and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Karamazov are a very great sounding mixture of post metal, hardcore, rock, noise and ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Rich Red Light" and "Sleepwreck". 8 out of 10.
