…For the record…
Founded in 2014, The Kompressor Experiment defines itself as an instrumental Post-Metal band.
In 2016, the band released its debut full-length album called »DOUZE« following by an EP (»Monolith«) three years later.
After rewriting a post-metal soundtrack for »2001: A Space Odyssey«, the band performed a dozen cinema-concerts in Switzerland. At the same time, the band also played standard live shows (PALP Festival, Le Romandie) and released their second album »2001« in october 2019. During spring of 2020, a line-up change occurred.
The band recorded and released an EP named »KMPXP« for this milestone. It also announced the new artistic direction for the future of The Kompressor Experiment.
This new album, »Ebb & Flow« is recorded during spring of 2021 by Ludovic Volper (Méande). Darker and more frantic than ever, the 7 tracks present a view of the history of mankind, its uncertain beginnings (»Endure The Sky«, »Riss-Würm«), through its exponential development (»Epigenesis«), its infinite violent cycles (»Tooth & Nail«, »Castle Bravo I and II«) to end on a hope for resilience (»Liminal Space«). Musically, the album draws from post-metal and prog-metal, with influences such as The Ocean, Leprous or Russian Circles while integrating elements from electronic music and offering a greater presence to synthesizers.
»Ebb & Flow« will be released on April 9th, 2022 (Digital, CD and Vinyl) through Sunday Fog. A release party is scheduled the same day at Pont-Rouge, Monthey (VS).
The Kompressor Experiment is:
Thomas Défago – Bass
Steve Frily – Drums
Fantin Reichler – Guitar, synth
David Roussel – Guitar, synth
For fans of Long Distance Calling, Leprous, Russian Circles, The Ocean…..
