Formed in 2013, Ireland’s Raum Kingdom (Dave Lee – vocals, Andrew Colohan – guitars, Ronan Connor – bass, and Mark Gilchrist – drums), play what has been described as combination of Neurosis’ haunting post-metal with Tool’s dark and intriguing ambient-rock.
In early 2014, the Dublin-based four-piece released their self-titled debut EP, which was met with great critical acclaim and allowed them to tour throughout Europe for the first time. In the following year, the group recorded two new tracks for a split-release with Belgian post-rock youngsters All We Expected, with whom they have become friends during their European tour.
Now nearly three years later, the Irishmen are set to their debut full-length album Everything & Nothing on June 1st on vinyl, CD and digital (pre-order here). An hour-long sonic journey of redemption and hope, Everything & Nothing sees Raum Kingdom refining their dark and emotionally intense post-metal sound merging heavy and dense riffs with ethereal and intriguing ambiences.
