Contorted and dissonant, with roots back to Steve Albini’s Big Black and Shellac, reminding me of some pioneering bands such as Cop Shoot Cop, Cardiacs and H.P. Zinker, and being similarly psycho and sick such as some contemporaries like The Dillinger Escape Plan and Blood Brothers, Kabul Golf Club are the brand new monster children of Limburg, Belgium. Merging Noise Rock rawness with Post-Hardcore resonances, KGC might seems a quite unfriendly band, for the comfortable, “decent” listener eventually even not listenable, but this is so fresh, so wild, so honest, so uncompromising, that is hard not to admire their effort for genuine self-expression. This kind of rebellious, twisted Metal have a long and fruitful history already, “Minus 45” for instance could find its place easily on VoiVod’s legendary “Nothingface” album, but this whole aggressive raging incorporates the fury of a brand new generation which must be heard. KGC proves creativity and talent, all their dissonances and noises, all that madness and chaos perfectly reflect the world we are living in, on the other hand, at the end everything fits in and makes perfect sense in their compositions.
Kabul Golf Club was found in June 2010, and they had gigs with bands such as The Rott Childs, traffico, Rise & Fall and Radical Slave. The KGC members were also active in the past in bands like The Powerkrauts, Enemy of the Sun and Kindred.
In 2011, KGC stood on stage at Rock Herk, Belgium.
Florent Pevee (singer/guitarist) joined KGC in January 2012, previously he was the playing bass of The Rott Childs.
“Le Bal Du Rat Mort”, the debut EP of KGC was released in February 2012, produced by Micha Volders (El Guapo Stunt Team, Vermin Twins).
The EP is available in Europe in: Bilbo, Fatkat, Caroline, Musicmania, Gigaswing, Mediamarkt, Fnac & Saturn.
