It is a rare and exciting opportunity to come across a band that is working as a virtually unknown quantity but with a fully-realized sonic aesthetic.
Manchester, NH trio Girih is just such a band. Already building a reputation in the greater Boston area for a startlingly powerful live performance, Girih is now prepared to make their debut to the world via dunk!records and A Thousand Arms. Laboring for a half a year to discover the exact tone and trajectory of their sound before even beginning to write material, they have ultimately crafted a beast of a record that stands toe-to-toe with the best instrumental metal releases in recent memory.
Eigengrau is a 6-song Masters' class in dynamic textures and forceful riffing. It features an uncanny and intoxicating balance of the driving aggression of post-metal and the graceful melody of post-rock, with just a dash of the fretboard wizardry common to math rock. It's this ability to blend styles that sets Girih a notch above; avoiding the one-note pitfalls inherent in prescribing to a single genre style, they invite a larger audience to appreciate the work they've created. Their heavily-textured sound translates impressively to their live performance, boosted by their expert use of looping and layering on stage. Eigengrau is a record that people should be getting on board with now, as it holds the potential to be one of the true breakout releases of 2018.
