ANIYO KORE    |    heavy . emotional

The trio from Dortmund / Essen signifies violent heavyness and deep emotions. Screaming guitars and massive bassses come upon epic drums and impulsive rhythms. Without cover songs and far from standard song structures the band explodes into a cutting-edge fuzz monster, somewhere between sludge and post punk. With their 7th studio recording "Alkaline Herbs" ANIYO KORE pierces through everyday life's gloom of an industrial metropolis, singing about the desire for freedom, philantropy and the love which, even in moments of utter hopelessness is always within our grasp.

"...touching base with heavy Stoner Rock, Sludge, Desert- and Psychedelic Rock, echoes of American, extended, oftentimes distorted guitar solos and thundering drums which might resonate with authentic hardcore Metal heads even though the bands etheral, longing and crystal clear vocal approach remains untouched..."

"ANIYO KORE make their mark with left-of-centre pieces of against the grain pop music, brilliantly weird and unique."

- Rewind Forward
"More suitable for a soundtrack to a David Lynch Movie than a concert with seating arrangements."

- Minutenmusik

"...ever so often strange paths. Surreal roadmovie-flair? Yes, something like that."

- Krach und so...

"If you are looking for classic song structures it will be in vain, but deep and eclectic sound is present at all times."

 "...on a clear mission to save melancholic vocal oriented trip-hop with the help of reduced beat structures, slightly 
dissonant postrock guitars, field recordings and an echo of illbient."
