The Canyon Observer is a five-member post/noise/sludge metal band.  They involve sheer primal agression and atmospheric noise escapades in their music. The Canyon Observer shared stages with bands like Russian Circles, Rosetta, God Is An Astronaut, Ahab … The band also made quite an impression with their cover of Nirvana’s Territorial Pissings that was made for the 20th anniversary of Nevermind. In October 2011 they released their first EP, Chapter I: The Current of Her Ocean Brings Me to My Knees. Exactly a year later another EP, Chapter II: These Binds Will Set You Free, followed. It saw the band’s expansion of the previous heavy, nasty noise with inclusions of progressive and even more daring concepts. The band is touring more often than not. They played  in Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Bolgaria … The list goes on and on. They just released a new album, their first full-length, called FVCK. Available digitally, on CD and vinyl. Released by KAPA Records in cooperation with Vox Project.

 

MEDIA ON THEIR NEWEST RELEASE FVCK:
“It’s almost unremittingly intense — as heavy as a pile of corpses, as hallucinatory as a drug-induced nightmare, chaotic, deranged, and powerfully disorienting.”

NO CLEAN SINGING

 

MEDIA ON THEIR PREVIOUS RELEASES:

“Pretend for a moment that you discover your new favorite band, they’ve blown your fucking mind with their perfect balance of style and substance, their commitment to crafting sound over pressing the flesh. But shit, now comes the realization you may never catch them live because they’re not traipsing the states in a dented van and you’ll have trouble even finding (or pronouncing) their hometown on a map.”
HEAVY PLANET about Chapter II

 

“Brilliantly played and produced from the start. I did not know much about this band. However, they are going to become quite well known, as their music is just epic.”
SLUDGELORD about Chapter I
