After the dark metal band Arkaid, today is another incursion in the so-called "light metal" thanks to the excellent Spanish label Art Gates Records. In fact, these Khous are a Spanish quartet born in 2001 as an alternative metal band. With the years, they made their music in a more aggressive way so to be nowadays a metalcore band, as perfectly expressed into their "Geroaren haziak". This is their third album and, if I understood well, is the last part of a homonymous trilogy consisting also of the two EPs entitled "Itsukeria" (2013) and "Fedea" (2014). Important to say, all the tracks of both the EPs are into the same album with the result that, including also the new songs, it has an incredible amount of numbers. But into it you'll find a form of metalcore that I don't like so much...
