Vancouver progressive metal band KOSM‘s sound is dynamic and unquestionably lethal. Since their induction in 2016, part of making a name for themselves on their local scene in Vancouver and beyond, has been putting together cover videos of some of their favourite bands such as Mastodon, Queens of The Stone Age, System of A Down, Halestorm, Plini and many more. Now the quintet is paying their respects to one of their influences Gojira by covering their track Ocean Planet.

“We chose Gojira because they’ve been one of our prominent inspirations for the band! Our bassist actually kept heckling us to cover ‘Ocean Planet’ and eventually we caved and took the song on. It was intimidating to undertake a band as powerful as Gojira, but we hoped to have done it justice!” says guitarist Erik Leonhard.

KOSM recently unleashed their debut ‘Cosmonaut’, an album loosely based on themes from stories by H.P. Lovecraft and others.

The band adds:

“Cosmonaut is a concept album loosely based on the weird-fiction of HP Lovecraft, and borrowing concepts from the science-fiction of Frank Herbert, and Roger Zelazny. The album follows a cosmonaut on a cosmic journey through time and space; from the earthly confines of mortal life, to ascendancy as an immaterial and omnipotent being. The cosmonaut’s journey is essentially symbolic, serving as a commentary on the human experience: a journey from confusion and anger, to transcendence and self-understanding.”

‘Cosmonaut’ is available on all major digital platforms BandcampiTunesSpotifyAmazonGoogle Play.
