There’s no mistaking KYOTY’s kinetic riffs and sprawling post-metal sound. The sheer force of their booming industrial oscillations is enough to pulverize eardrums, while their atmospheric shoegazing captivates the mind.
KYOTY is an instrumental post-metal three-piece based out of New Hampshire. The cryptic, often secretive band was formed in 2009 by guitarist Nick Filth (N’Zwaa, Trembling Love, UNISEX, and Psychic Wounds) and bassist Nathaniel Parker Raymond (Conquered, White Narrows). After a few changes in drummers, Rob Brown joined in 2010 and the three have maintained the same lineup since. In 2012 they released “Undiscovered Country of Old Death and Strange Years in the Frightful Past” through Tokyo Jupiter Records. In 2017 they re-engineered, remixed, and remastered the album to re-release it as “Remanufactured Realm of Ancient Annihilation”. 2015 saw the release of “Geomancy I,” a one-sided record, through Deafening Assembly. KYOTY has also released splits with Host and SEA, a handful of singles, and a live recording in 2019.
