I wish to thank my friend Peter Delchev for introducing me to a brilliant math-rock band out of Bulgaria called Mental Architects. I had no idea these guys were pretty much in front of my face during my recent Balkan visit. I’m definitely looking forward to hearing more, and for those who book festivals, I’d recommend these guys for any slot available.
Amazing. Post-punk with a brutal prog influence, courtesy of Steve Albini’s Shellac, which rose from the ashes of Big Black, and actually bettered that legacy.
Post-rock, math-rock, prog-metal… Not quite sure how to describe Kolt, a band out of Skopje, Macedonia, but I like their energy a lot!
