Featuring members of Thisismenotthinkingofyou, Moss Rose, Yuri and Alle, this ridiculous concoction of noisy emo-violence and grindcore will floor you with four tracks in less than as many minutes. KODOS released a demo earlier this year (linked here) on member Shaun's record label Adorno Records, with this new cassette EP titled 'You Can Weave the Loom or You Can Leave the Room' being put to 35 tapes, which you can purchase from the label's bandcamp page here. Let's go through those scorchers!

(2017) KODOS - "(fla)mingomingomingo" (from 'You Can Weave the Loom Or You Can Leave the Room') official music video
"(fla)mingomingomingo" begins with an eerie intro that leads into pulverizing palm mutes, breaks and dual screaming. There's also a music video for it and it's the only track to reach a minute.

(2017) KODOS - "I Am the Lizard Queen" (from 'You Can Weave the Loom Or You Can Leave the Room')
"I Am the Lizard Queen" wastes no time annihilating the listener in just 34 seconds with mind-bending drumming as well as erratic and scorching guitars. It's probably my favourite of the four and bears some resemblance to Lord Snow musically and Hedge Fund Trader vocally.

(2017) KODOS - "You Can Weave the Loom Or You Can Leave the Room" (from 'You Can Weave the Loom Or You Can Leave the Room')
The self titled track is the darkest of the four songs, with a whirlwind beginning, a brief calm in the middle and finally goes full-tilt into the wormhole of emo-violence by the end.

(2017) KODOS - "Vincent Price's Orphan Powered Acrostics" (from 'You Can Weave the Loom Or You Can Leave the Room')
The closer "Vincent Price's Orphan Powered Acrostics" seems to rely a bit more heavily on Yasmin's vocals than Shaun's, although you'll find them both layering shrieks throughout the 54 seconds of cacophonous, extreme hardcore.
