Versatile hard rock quartet, Coltaine, thrive on contrast and are five records into their journey. There is a ferocious energy and rhythmic nuance to the band that delivers devastating guitar riffs in a raw blend of progressive, dark, neo-psychedelic rock with a twist of doom. The lineup has changed over the years, now there in 4 with an incredible frontwoman with a very powerful voice, this short video gives some idea of what Coltaine is live today.
Kariti means “to mourn the dead” in ancient church Slavonic. it is a solo journey of a Russian born artist currently based in Italy. the debut record ‘Covered Mirrors’ was released by Aural Music, represents a cathartic peregrination through bereavement and was mastered by Lorenzo Stecconi (Zu, Ufomammut, Grime). Here’s a video for one of the songs. Besides the recent tour with Coltaine, kariti played a number of solo shows in Italy and Slovenia, solo or sharing the stage with Conny Ochs (GER), Messa (ITA) e Grift (SWE). More solo shows are planned for fall & winter 2022 and the second album is in the works for 2023.
