KHOST will also perform at several European festivals throughout the summer. Watch for additional audio and video samples from the record and other news and dates to follow in the bleak weeks ahead.
KHOST is comprised of Andy Swan (Final, Iroha) and Damian B (carthage, Techno Animal, Deathless). The follow-up to their 2017-released Governance album, Buried Steel delivers themes and sonics ranging from granite and impassive to dreamlike and somnambulistic. The recording of Buried Steel was plagued with unexplained events including a studio fire which destroyed the masters of some songs. Several tracks on the album had to be pieced together from burnt fragments of tape and recovered segments of damaged hard drives. From this point, the dynamics of some of the songs were altered, shifting their eventual outcome, particularly the tone of ambient work on Buried Steel.
