Midwest post-metal crew Minsk are teaming up with fellow post-metallers Zatokrev for a melancholic, atmospheric split. Today, Minsk offer the song “The Chalice and the Dagger” from their side, summoning walls of doomy guitar and strong, melodic vocals over a slow-burning six minutes.
“‘The Chalice And The Dagger’ is a snapshot into the world of paradox,” Minsk explain. “Life is a disgusting grind, yet our experience vibrates with ecstasy and potentiality. This song hopes to present the hymn of the out-lier; with the ragged beauty of navigating through the margins of existence. Interpretation is invalid without context, and this song hopes to touch on the uncharted, and the established. It sits within the entirety of BIGOD as one section of four, with all parts necessary to the whole.”
Now that you have context, listen and interpret away. Pre-order BIGOD here.
