Perennity Records / Sound Pollution / Rough Trade
True to their name, this powerful trio performs a headstrong, burly metal with
roots deep in the impenetrable mire of the stoner/doom/sludge tradition nuanced with streaks of progressive rock and psychadelica. A wide blend of influences are entwined and results in an accomplished and coherent music that is as direct and powerful as it is multi layered and meandering. Names that are commonly mentioned in relation to Colossus are Mastodon, Neurosis, Kyuss and Tool, to name a few.
The band have been maturing since the well received EP “Spiritual Myiasis”. Spring 2012 Colossus entered Top Floor Studios in Gotherburg together with Jakob Herrmann and came out with a heavy and organic full length debut that severely raises the bain on matters of musical composition and production. The album has been mixed by Pontus Norgren (Hammerfall) and is guested by Lars G Petrov of Entombed and drummer extraordinaire Morgan Ågren of Mats/Morgan Band, Frank Zappa, Fredrik Thordendal and many more.
The single, "Pillars of Perennity" feat. Lars G Petrov, was released as a foretaste for the full length album, while the tools have been sharpened to prepare for a intensive 2013, and Colossus have already been booked to tour Europe as support act for The Resistance in mid May.
