Our ancestors believed that our lives on Earth were reflected in the stars. ‘As Above, So Below’ was their wise wisdom, seeing the lights of the cosmic firmament as reflecting the lives of the people below. Moreover, they told tales, cloaked in mystical terms, but tales of the world around them, reflections through a glass darkly.
Now, progressive metallers KOSM have looked to the stars for inspiration, creating their own sound and story-telling mythos; a welcome break from the media-saturated negativity that threatens to overwhelm us; and like all good SF/Fantasy, KOSM’s songs reflect the world around us, they truly are 21st century sonic bards!
Inspired by Tool, Mastodon, The Agonist (Alissa White-Gluz era), Gojira and A Perfect Circle, drummer Sterling Paterson describes their sound as “female fronted progressive alternative metal.”
Creating interest on their local scene and fan following first with cover videos, along with two singles “Ancient Heart” and “Space Mead”, Sterling is stoked for fans to hear KOSM’s planned debut ‘Cosmonaut’ set for release in 2018.
“I think our upcoming album should be received well. The authenticity and sound of this band and how it has been received just blows us away. We want to tell a story that is inspired by our love of dark fantasy and H.P Lovecraft!”
Live, KOSM really do bring their audience to another dimension.
“Despite being a heavier band, people are coming to our gigs that don’t even listen to metal and are headbanging and having a riot! Both men and women come to our shows, it’s never a boy’s club. In one of our last gigs we were swamped with people wanting autographs on gig posters. We put on a show that’s akin to Tool and Mastodon. A good balance of heavy riffs and hooks crossed with hypnotic bridges and interludes whilst delivered over a series of different time signatures. People can expect to be taken on a journey where they’ll be thrashing around one moment and swaying to the music the next!”
