Reka is a slow and heavy band from Moscow, Russia that is still unknown in West-Europe but deserves the attention to be heard if your are into Neurosis.
Reka returns with an one-sided LP which is a kind of experiment for the Post-Metal band. Two members from the Swedish band Amalthea joined the recording.
Two bands covering a track of the other band to celebrate their friendship. Two different heavy post metal and hardcore songs shared on one slab of vinyl.
In this niche of heavy music the Russians of Reka have definitely found their place. ‘Renaissance’ proves it!
Two post metal bands team up for a great split. Russia versus Sweden and Russia wins this time.
