KOSM is a progressive metal band from Vancouver BC. Combining influences from Mastodon, Tool and Gojira; their sound is dynamic and unquestionably lethal. Since their induction in 2016, they have been making their mark in Vancouver's metal scene as an absolute force to be reckoned with.
"My first thought hearing these guys was “this is female fronted Tool”. The similarity is just too obvious. From the bass sound and colossal use of toms to the slightly psychedelic vibe in the clean guitar parts and the clean vocal, it just screams of it. It’s got that crazy touch of unpredictability and alternation between aggressive riffs and soft, moody grooves." - Andrei Dan
"Patterns come in and loop around, sometimes returning, while at others they dissipate into the ether. Apart from numbers such as the title track, this is a very heavy album, and one of the issues some bands have with going down that musical path is they are unable to find a singer who can stand out and not only make themselves heard but add to what is going on beneath them. That is certainly not an issue here, as singer Jessie Grace is in total control at all times."
"KOSM begins to be constituted as a new proposal within the progressive metal with a sound that has been evolving in a quest to obtain an identity of its own. The presentation of his conceptual albums gives him extra value."
"I am immediately impressed. “Yharnam” is the first track, and I am already thinking Otep, Epica and iwrestledabearonce. The lyrics are impactful, the flow of the song fits and I want to listen to the rest already. Jessie Grace, vocalist, is showing her talent from the get-go. Having such a strong female lead is really a treasure, and I can’t fault the song. It’s definitely my favourite track off of the EP. The lyrics are dynamic and descriptive, and well executed. If you haven’t played Bloodborne, then this song will make you want to." - Courtney Wallace
