Following their 2006 split with Mouth of the Architect, Dayton, OH instrumental doom/post-rock outfit Kenoma are set to release their debut full-length, The Tides Will Prevail, next week (April 28) through Translation Loss. The album, which has been 11 long years in the making, features five tracks comprising 50 minutes of gorgeous soundscapes that have been well-worth the wait. From the crushing riffs and sludgy tones to the progressive structures and ethereal atmospheres, The Tides Will Prevail is absolutely stunning.
In this recent interview with Svbterranean, bassist Doug McGinnis discusses the new record and the many member changes, which is the main reason behind the 11-year gap between releases. He also talks about how Kenoma have evolved over the years and the thematic approach behind The Tides Will Prevail, as well as the importance of song titles for the instrumental band, and more.
