KYYYX : KYYYX



This CDr contains a low rumbling with only minuscule alterations which you'll only hear if you pay particularly close attention. I do not consider this to be doom metal at all. This is ambient/drone in my opinion. However, there are those who consider The Fall of the Grey-Winged One, Xyxyxma, Life Curse, and other identical bands, to be some sort of doom/drone. This review is mainly dedicated to them. After all, I do not consider any definition of doom metal to be "correct".

Not much information is available online about KYYYX. The Finnish tracktitles make the nationality an obvious guess. Also, 'kyyt' is Finnish for 'vipers', so I guess that is what the project-name refers to. The projects that produce the kind of music KYYYX does has rarely included more than one member, so there you have another obvious guess. My final guess is that, since the project never released anything besides this release and the label is now dead, the 100 copies of 'KYYYX' will not be succeeded. (The labels death is a shame since the person behind it really knew how to make awesome covers. This particular one contains the same kind of awesome see-through inlays as has the other two Deviants Clove Productions releases, and it is these inlays which leaves this release with any value at all.)

Well, I've already done the namedropping so you know whether you'll like this kind of music or not. Only a very select taste will enjoy this - you know who you are.
