Tonzonen Records is pleased to announce the new album form German noisy Post-Rock quartet Volvopenta for a release on February titled Simulacrum.
This Is Not Detroit was the title of an art project in the Ruhr area, and it became so popular because the similarities are so unmistakable. Since 2007, the music of the Ruhrgebiet band from Essen and Mülheim an der Ruhr has been both, a commentary on the environment and resistance to the surrounding tristesse. Volvopenta thrives on the contrast and friction that arises from the interplay between the two guitarists Marcus Kreyhan and Stefan Claudius. André David's unobtrusively refined work on the bass and Kai Spriestersbach's stoic drumming turn the harmonious counter- and coexistence into unity.
