Lost in Kiev - Rupture (2022)


Having slowly creeped its way into influencing Metal bands, Post-Rock is a genre we have always enjoyed and found quite engaging and dreamy to so extent. One of the best bands in the genre has to be French outfit Lost in Kiev, which returns this October with their latest opus “Rupture”. Producing over 51 minutes of high-octane cinematic music, the band covers many different moods and tempos in a very cohesive and engaging release.

The release nicely builds momentum with the intriguing “We Are” and its crafty progression, filled with intricate guitars and engaging drumming. Featuring Loic Rossetti from The Ocean, “Prison of Mind” perfectly layers dramatic and aggressive vocals on top of the band's exploratory and momentum building style. This is definitely the heaviest track of this release. Our favorite track in this release has to be the magical “Another End is Possible” and its oozing bleakness alongside dreamy shoegazing passages.

Filled with exciting tempo changes and crafty progressions, “But You Don’t Care” and “Solastalgia” are two excellent tracks that show the band’s versatility and range while keeping their sound engaging and dynamic. With a more experimental and improvisational edge “Digital Flesh” is another very entertaining and explosive track, with a pulsating bass guitar line and funky atmospherics.

Closing with the album title track, the band leaves on a high note with the longest and most subtle piece in the release. We particularly love that Lost in Kiev has a very dreamy and well defined sound, but the band is not afraid to experiment and craft a diverse set of songs with different moods and a plethora of cool arrangements. If you are a fan of Post-Rock bands like Tides from Nebula, EF, etc., this album will be a great addition to your collection.
