Originally formed in 2006 under the name PsychoToBlack, after numerous personnel changes, a handful of filed missing person reports and a ritual or two in the black arts, Tokyo’s Sithter eventually emerged, dragged into sunlight.
Influenced by the traditional sludge metal of bands like Grief, Eyehategod and Buzzoven, after leaving his previous outfit MONEY IS GOD in 2007, guitarist Hyo “Noise Fucker” Kagawa brought with him experiments in doom and dark psychedelia, alongside drummer Takefumi Matsuda and vocalist/guitarist Hiroyuki Takano. Completed by the arrival of newest member Wahei Gotoh on bass in 2013 kidnapped from the heavy cosmic rock band Dhidalah. the quartet quickly became masters of the “Sonic Death Sludge” sound.
Following the release of 2009’s “The Last Temptation” EP, their first full-length album “Evilfucker” on the Russian doom label Bad Road Records and a split with Seoul-based death metal trio Gonguri, they released the second full-length “Chaotic Fiend” on Bonten Records in 2016.
Hailing from Tokyo, Khola Cosmica are not your average “stoner rock” band. This brutal power trio plays some of the most extreme, psychedelic doom metal you can find. Long tracks featuring devastating, loud, in-your-face fuzz riffing, hypnotic drones, and dark atmospheres destined to destroy your mind.
