Every once in a while, something truly challenging and outside of the box comes across our ears. Something we just have to share with you! Today is such a day, with the release of the debut full length by Boston trio Kraanerg.

'Of Matter' is an unorthodox and raw bastard of undeniably avant-garde proportions. This is not your average dissonant extreme Metal. Instead, it draws from the most visionary artists of the niche.

Exactly what Kraanerg are delivering here defies traditional descriptions. It's jarring, chaotic and primal, but possesses a sophisticated nuance to it that makes it clear that every twist and turn on 'Of Matter' was composed with purpose.

For fans of: Jute Gyte, Mastery, Orthrelm
