Joseph Post I've owned this album for well over 10 years already. This 7-part work is so focused, so extreme that listening to it brings me to a zen state. Like how you can stare into a blazing fire, which is full of energy and chaos, but it puts you in a trance. Yowie is the fuel to that inner fire.

    Three years in the making, Cryptooology, Yowie's debut album, is an album at war. Yowie, a dual-guitar and drums trio from St. Louis, have been stunning audiences with their incomparable barrage of sonic kung fu. They accelerate the progressive-rock rhythmic sensibilities of RUINS and MAGMA and mutate them with the shriekier side of BIG BLACK and SLAYER. The band incorporates many variations in time signature, tempo, and tuning, to create a virtual audio maze, but no matter how complex things get their compositions remain cohesive and compelling.

about

Yowie St. Louis, Missouri

Yowie plays a dense foreign language through two guitars which communicate in an angry six string banter over strictly scattered drums. This power trio speaks in alien code with founding member Defenestrator playing the part of percussive conductor. Each song comes densely packed with rare repetitions: a series of guitar riffs pass like clever one-liners with unbridled speed. ... more
