Legendary musician Iggor Cavalera and Australian experimental band Bolt Gun team up for the release of the EP The Warren. Recorded during their respective pandemic lockdowns, the two artists have created an expansive piece of music that blends Iggor’s characteristic drumming style with Bolt Gun’s experimental black metal/post-metal.
The blackened assault of the track’s first half combined with a striking yet sombre ambient interlude, showcases Bolt Gun’s nuanced style, before descending into chaos and a crushing outro that is reminiscent of the post-metal styles of Amenra or Cult of Luna.
Lyrically The Warren is a homage to Brian Evenson’s novella of the same name, a surrealist nightmare of claustrophobia and annihilation.
