Consouling Sounds announces Labirinto | Thisquietarmy split release

Labirinto, instrumental and experimental post-rock from Brazil & thisquietarmy, ambient/experimental/shoegaze/postrock/drone one-man-band from Canada will release a split effort available on June 11th on CD through Consouling Sounds (AmenRa, Syndrome, The Black Heart Rebellion...) and LP on Dissenso Records and Pirate Ship Records (The American Dollar).

It will be available for full-exclusive streaming at the beginning of June.

While waiting for the streaming session and the the official release, the cover art is available below.

Active since 2005, thisquietarmy is the experimental guitar-based brainchild of Eric Quach from Montreal, Canada (also involed in Destroyalldreamers, Ghidrah, Mains de Givre, Parallel Lines...). Revolving around improvised guitar-based drone music, he takes his sonic experimentation further by adding textural and structural elements of industrial, shoegaze, krautrock, post-rock, black and doom metal to them. The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive and engaging dreamscapes. His live performances are mostly presented as a real-time score to hypnotic ethereal visuals, which he creates himself for each show.
Under the moniker of thisquietarmy, Eric Q has released full-length albums on Denovali Records (Germany), Aurora Borealis (UK) or Foreshadow (Poland) as well as several collaborative/split albums, EPs, 7"s & tapes with Aidan Baker from Nadja, Monarch!, Scott Cortez (Lovesliescrushing) or Year Of No Light, on various labels as Alien8 Recordings (Canada), ConSouling Sounds, Destructure Records (France) as well as his own imprint TQA Records.

Formed in in 2003 by friends who sought to materialize their various musical and personal influences through instrumental composition, Labirinto (“labyrinth” in portuguese) seeks to create textures and environments full of imagery, as in a movie soundtrack, in which the scenes are on account of the listener’s imagination.
Their musical references travels through many different styles, from ambient music, to metal, from progressive to drone, resulting in a rich mixture so deeply inspiring, and intense melodies along several passages that can be found on each track.In 10 years, Labrinto has released several EPs : "Pseudo Segurança Compensatória" (2005), "Cinza" (2006), "Labirinto" (2007), "Etéreo" (2009) and "Kadjwynh" + an acclamaid full-length album on 2010 ("Anathema").
