Heavy-as-all-hell Athens, Greece noise rock quartet KRAUSE formed in 2016 and exploded onto the scene in 2017 with its massive debut LP 2am THOUGHTS (Riot Season). Next came the equally well received The Ecstasy OF Infinite Sterility in 2019, a brutal, sparsely melodic monolith of an album.
Featuring veterans of various scenes and genres (active and past members of VULNUS, Cut off, Rita Mosss, Casual Nun, Progress of Inhumanity, Dusteroid and Straighthate), KRAUSE play AmRep/Touch and Go inspired heavy noise rock and put on an equally unforgiving live show to go with it.
The Vague Outlines of Almost Recognisable Shapes/The Fraternity of Lost Men-Children 7inch serves as a harbinger of things to come. Two slabs of uncompromising sonic violence, heavy yet catchy, that give an inkling of what KRAUSE have in store for us in the future.
