The Power of Metal webzine presents the exclusive DK premiere of the new video ‘Demiurge’ delivered by post metallers Labirinto.
São Paulo’s LABIRINTO are not the spearheads of a vivid local scene, but to stay within the realms ofpost-rockmetaphory, more of an isolated island within a vast ocean of nothingness. There is not much contemporary instrumental heavy music anywhere in South America. There are hardly any record labels and internationalbands seldomly make it over on tour. All the more surprising that this island of LABIRINTO has been releaseing records for 13 years already.
“They have crafted an epic post-rock album in the truest sense of the word-six songs, 70 minutes running time,but none of it wasted“, Rock-A-Rolla wrote about their debut album „Anatema“, and Rolling Stone praised their live show as”one of the most powerful experiences in the Brazilian independent scene”.
„Divino Afflante Spiritu“ is already the band’s 10th release,but only the 3rd full-length album. The band’s back catalogue is made up of a number of EPs and splits (with THISQUIETARMY among others), a detail which showcases the band’s strong roots in the DIY scene. Guitarist Erick Cruxen and drummer Muriel Curi, a long-married couple, have learned how take control of every aspect of the band’s universe themselves: from running their own record label to booking their own tours to running their own recording studio, the internationally renowned Dissenso Studios in São Paulo.
