Have You Received The Void Today?

If you consider yourself a fan of Damad or Kylesa, but haven't heard Karst, you'd be wise to download the folder below. Karst were a post-Damad band that never achieved rock-star status like that certain other "K" band. Some may agree with me that Karst deserved it more! They continued with the singular, eerie progressive sludge Damad played, but took it to a new level of twistedness and dynamic song-writing. Totally brilliant!

This EP, "Receive the Void," was released as a two song 7" and a three song CD. The CD doesn't list the "mystery" track, but it's there after some wait, and it's called "Selfstruck." I have taken the liberty of uploading the CD at 320 kbps, deleting the extra space between the last two tracks, and tagging them all accordingly. Enjoy. And if you haven't checked out Karst's great full length CD, you can get it here.


You may now Receive the Void
