goldenapes kasbekAfter a successful Startnext crowdfunding campaign, the new GOLDEN APES album "KASBEK" will be released on 7th of June by Aenaos Records. "KASBEK" sets a new landmark in their 20th year of existence; yet the band still achieves to defy definition and slip away from the grid of specific genre characteristics.

"KASBEK" is the essence of GOLDEN APES' last two years and at the same time an analysis of their history without sounding retrospective or backward-looking - quite the contrary. Songs like "Oblivion", "Vento", "Sleep" or the enchanting "Dust & Dew" (a duet with Canadian Shannon Hemmett, vocalist of bands Leathers and Actors) are acoustic derivatives that own everything that GOLDEN APES' sound is made of, but remain unique in their own right: they are being further, more resolute, deeper, soaked with that unique aesthetic and subtle grandeur.

Anthemic, dark, elegiac, disturbing, and yet somehow soothing - "KASBEK" is a lot of things but mainly it's a statement of a band which made itself a present and gifted us in the end.
