If you are looking for a musical act whose sound could only be described as “gargantuan”, then I think Kowloon Walled City is your best bet. Kowloon Walled City’s most recent effort, Container Ships, came to me at a time when I needed it most. I was on a desperate search for a record that sounded huge and heavy but also have unique characteristics that would keep my attention. Needless to say, Container Ships was that record and it absolutely blew me away. In the midst of a Kowloon Walled City high, I contacted guitarist/vocalist Scott Evans to chat about the band and their new record.
On December 4th, Kowloon Walled City will unleash their barbaric new album Container Ships via Brutal Panda. We’ve already heard “Cornerstone” and now Pitchfork are streaming the nearly eight minute, Godzilla sized title track. “Container Ships” could quite possibly sink the aforementioned ships. A reverberating mass of feedback gives way to a massive riff that is continually hammered out upon the listener and eventually opens the gate for a ridiculously heavy and melodic outro. In short, this song demolishes me. I cannot wait for this album to drop. Check out the song ASAP!
Kowloon Walled City will be releasing their new record entitled Container Ships on December 4th via Brutal Panda Records. The sludge ridden bastards are currently streaming a cut from the upcoming record over at NPR. “Cornerstone” is a devastating, groove laden slab of buzzing sludge metal that will surround you with sonic destruction. Check it out now and be sure to pre-order this bad boy ASAP.
