A burning pyre made of yellowing post cards and forgotten memories, standing beside it while witnessing how negative emotions dissipated as the wind swept the ashes away --- the ultimate indulging of loneliness in the black box you created for yourself. A poetry of depressive romance: this is how one would describe the music of Kinsukuroi.
Based in Italy, Kinsukuroi (金繕い/Golden Repair) have released an ep consisted of two songs that best exemplified their own musical aesthetic of post black metal's melancholy nature in 2020. In collaboration with Pest Productions, Kinsukuroi will release this ep and gave it a new title: Ode to Loneliness and Sorrow, an ep consisted of those two songs originally included in the previous ep, plus 1 new song and 4 songs brilliantly covering some major acts in post black metal and neofolk. Those covers, together with those two songs written by Kinsukuroi themselves, clearly demonstrate the project's potential: as flooding riffs and melodies of sorrow intertwining with the bleak and dreamlike ambient soundscape created by synths and keyboards, the razor-sharp deep howls bring the listeners into the inner world of Kinsukuroi: a great mixture of depressive rock and post black metal, a world of suicidal beauty. BTW, two important guests in the EP: Dan Jackson (ex-Deadspace, Woewarden) and S.D. Ramirez (Psychonaut 4), their input brought with them a fierce agression into this opus！

Oh, this takes me back, a really pleasant surprise it was! I remember when that homonymous bootleg was circulating around the web which led many to believe it was authentic, but now the real thing is finally out and it's just beautiful!
It's a masterpiece as furious and unrelenting as soothing and melancholic, just the way good Blackgaze is meant to be! Tharkius Absconditus

This is a trip, plain and simple. You choose which type (LSD, or what not) but it is TRIPPY !!! Saxophone ? wow at first I was like WTH, but then, and then again, I really come to like this. One of those albums I needed to listen to many time, as it grows. It was not love at first hearing, for sure. sachavonkarl74
