Founded by two brothers from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2009, Gespenst members don't call themselves a band. “We’re not a band, we’re brothers” says Syahmi.
Gespenst is made of Syahmi Rawi and Zuhair Rawi a post-rock duo known by their minimal riffs and sounds but presented in a big and cinematic style. Every note and riff in each song has its own emotion and shaped by ambient sounds and heavy soundscapes. Gespenst is influenced by the sound of Pg.Lost, Khoma, Mono, and Maybeshewill.
Gespenst crafts their music as a epic emotional journey with vivid lights of hopes vanishing through every color of rage and drowning in the sea of sadness.
