As announced last summer with the release of the 'Monolith' Digital EP, three years after its debut album 'DOUZE', a bunch of gigs and several months of hard work Swiss Cinematic Post-Rock/Progressive Quartet The Kompressor Experiment is about to release a brand new album called '2001', out on october 25th for CD, LP & Digital editions through Shunu Records (Rocket Miner).
A fully realized journey in and of itself, “Monolith I” is making its initial appearance as a precursor to a larger and fully immersive work inspired by concepts of space and time as reflected in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Taken on its own it is a strong encapsulation of what listeners can expect from The Kompressor Experiment – equal parts thundering, progressive, melodic and stirring, it is representative of a band that is willing to take the time to allow ideas to unfold while never sacrificing immediacy and impact.
Also featured on this EP is a live rendition of the second piece of the “Monolith” triptych, as well as a demo version of “MG1,” initially written as part of the 2001 concept but appearing exclusively on this EP. Those listeners who find themselves drawn to this concept can head to the Kickstarter page to help bring to life a physical release of the entire opus from which “Monolith I & II” are but an alluring initiation.
