The Darkest Of Grays

Label: Per Koro

Released: 2010

  • LP 12,90
"the darkest of grays" is PLANKS 2nd full-length. It features 12 songs that are pretty much different from their 1st self-titled record. Yet it is totally PLANKS. The band focused more on the dynamic aspekt in their music instead of sheer brutality. The songs are all full of different nuances, tempi changes and have an undeniable sense of melody. Stylewise don't expect pop music here, even though there are clearly some structures of a classic ('80s dark-wave ) hints to be found. If you feel the urge to describe the whole thing, you could imagine a blending of BREACH's "kollapse" with MASTODON's "leviathan" mixed with ISIS "oceanic" , "closer" by JOY DIVISION and some classic Norwegian black-metal such as DARK THRONs "transilvanian Hunger". It all sounds rather unique and contemporary. If you enjoy bands such as the ones mentioned before this record might be your cup of black coffee. LP comes with gatefold sleeve with reverse side printings, poster and black innersleeve.
