Video: Kithkin – “Altered Beast”

A dissonant guitar chord shreaks in the background as a pounding bass drum and clicking drum sticks ring through the room.


Piece by piece, the band begins adding more elements to this musical stampede. Kelton Sears’ bass guitar brings a sludgey riff to this rhythm, bedding the bands yelling chants, and finally, Bob Martin’s whirring synths set in, seemingly elevating this song into a floating bliss. Check it out!
