(7/10) Belgium post-metal gang Steak Number Eight put a fresh piece of meat on the barbeque. It's called "Kosmokoma", it's their thrid release and contains eleven tracks.
When it comes to the sound of the new longplayer not that much changed for the Belgian four-piece. Brent Vannesta and his dudes wrote again wild tunes that are sometimes durious and crazy ("Return of Kolomon"), sometimes mighty slo-mo ("Gravity Giants") and sometimes spot-on ("Your Soul Deserves To Die Twice").
All this shows the diversity of the music Steak Number Eight delivers on their new longplayer. "Kosmokoma" is an album that isn't easy going. It takes some time to get into it, but after a while each songs reveals it's full beauty.
In case you're looking for a party soundtrack or some headbanging stuff you should go for some other releases. "Kosmokoma" demands time, endurance and focus. It's worth to invest all this. The songs will reward you after a while.
