Black Kites / Convul (Convulsions) - Split GKR018

• All physical purchases come with a digital download of album.
• Digital downloads available immediately after checkout.

Slowly churning from an idea among like-minded music mongers to a realistic formality, this kinship between two unique outfits has finally come to fruition. Both trekking from the same school of thought, this split demonstrates how the words "chaotic" and "rhythm" can be used in the same sentence to describe such signature styles. Black Kites moves forward with their aggressive yet emotionally unhinged sound that has taken them years to cultivate. Taking no issues lightly, lyrically BK has proven to be just as harsh and cunning with words as their instrumental infrastructure. As for Convulsions, they have taken on a new forms by flexing their "Prog-Rock" muscles while retaining and perfecting their ongoing, derailing composition. This is truly a match-maid in well, heaven? Comes in a heavy full color jacket, original artwork by Harry Gould Harvey IV. Limited first press of 500 pieces. Includes a digital download.
