Bringing out great music all over the world is one of our missions at Fluttery Records and it makes us feel great. This time we are releasing great music from Malaysia. Founded by two brothers from Kuala Lumpur 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. The post-rock duo creates 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 has step up their game in The Bloodline, focusing on emotional value in each song without using any spoken words. The Bloodline has a symbolic meaning to Gespenst, portraying the meaning of love, rage and hope through musical presentation and blended with distorted riffs and melancholic strings.
“If your heart isn’t closed on fragile beauty and loves something more than intensive screaming and guitar-raping, please try and fall in love with Gespenst” – Shillenya, A Hymn For A Lost Soul. This EP starts with huge strings and screaming guitars in Silver Lining, sounds like they’re calling you to be a part of their pure and emotional journey.” says Zuhair and adds “The Bloodline presents high level post rock since very beginning – shaking and staggering riffs, ambient background and main melody switching from keys, strings to guitar. Lesson well learned – put their level pretty high for rookies”
Gespenst crafted their music in The Bloodline as an epic emotional journey with vivid lights of hopes vanishing through every color of rage and drowning in the sea of sadness.
