As announced a few days ago with the music video of the song “Hippocampus Spatial Transmigration” : about 14 months after the release of their album ‘2001’, Swiss post-prog rockers The Kompressor Experiment just officially released a brand new EP called ‘KMPXP’ available right now on a very limited 10′ LP edition & Digital through Sunday Fog Records. In addition to the official release-news, the band also shared the whole EP on Bandcamp, Spotify and the Wherepostrockdweels YouTube channel.
“The Kompressor Experiment rearranges two older songs and compiles them into an EP named « KMPXP ».
Recorded in a few days during the summer of 2020 by Ludovic Volper (Méandre), Bronko, a longer track from the first album « Douze » and Hippocampus Spatial Transmigration, one of the oldest pieces of the band, here take on a more modern, dark and violent fashion than before. Recalling sometimes the syncopated styles of The Ocean or even Leprous.”
THE KOMPRESSOR EXPERIMENT is a quartet from Sion (Switzerland) which offers a blend of instrumental progressive rock, metal, stoner rock and post-rock. The band adds to this genre-mix some innovative sounds and tries to push the traditionnal boundaries of rock music.
The musical side of this uncommon project is entwined with a strong visual identity. The band’s enclosed with cinematic esoteric visuals and adds to its shows some mesmerizing abstract video projections.
Having recorded an amateur demo in 2013 and played a dozen gigs around Switzerland eversince, THE KOMPRESSOR EXPERIMENT gets into the DIY process of recording its first studio album called ‘DOUZE’ in 2016. Three years later TKE gave birth to a second full-length effort called ‘2001’ inspired by the cult movie from Stanley Kubrick.
