Cthulhu Rise biography
A Ukrainian experimental rock combo CTHULHU RISE were formed in late 2000s under musical background of 70s rock, alternative rock, jazz, metal, or mathcore. Through recording several demo tracks, they've made significant alterations to their soundscape. Although they had played with a couple of vocalists in their early days, their playing style has been shifted to purely instrumental one since the end of 2009. Since Autumn 2010 they have recorded material for their debut album scrupulously, that finally saw the light upon June 29, 2012 as a CD / vinyl / downloadable MP3 titled "42" via Musea Records. Without any breath they have started recording for their second album.

4 stars Ukrainian band CTHULHU RISE first appeared on the scene with their debut album "42" in 2012, which was released by the French label Musea Records. They had been active for five years at this point, and the material on that album was already a couple of years old. "The Second One" is their sophomore effort, and consists of material developed from 2013 and onward. On this occasion the band decided to self-release the album.

Instrumental bands that explore avant-garde and metal combined into expressive, challenging endeavors aren't the kind of bands that will ever sell music by the truckload. There is an audience for such creations however, and that audience should find this album to be a most rewarding experience, I suspect. Especially those among them who don't mind the occasional inclusion of details that appears to have more of a classical music orientation.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
