chaos echoes – SUSTAIN!

Mar.20, 2018

pre order now from utech: SUSTAIN by Chaos Echoes and Mats Gustafsson

http://www.utechrecords.com/

Chaos Echoes with Mats Gustafsson Sustain LP/CS

PRE-ORDER SHIPS APRIL 13
With Sustain, Chaos Echoes have not only surpassed their peers, they have surpassed themselves. The band—guitarist Kalevi Uibo, his drummer brother Ilmar Uibo, bassist Stefan Thanneur and second guitarist Fabien W. Furter—are joined by saxophone colossus Mats Gustafsson of The Thing and Fire! on two lengthy instrumental tracks. “Spellbound” and “Harvest of Souls” collectively sculpt an ominous and forbidding landscape of sound.
