Fugues is the third full length album from Nottingham's Kogumaza.Ambitious in both scope and arrangement, Fugues sees Kogumaza stretch the traditional rock album template to breaking point, with a determination to create large ensemble compositions whilst working within the confines of the bands core trio.The album was meticulously created over a period of four years, at locations ranging from DIY practice spaces and bedrooms through to final mixing and mastering on the Isle of Lewis.Building upon themes of memory loss and dyschronometria, (the inability to keep track of time), the drawn-out period of composition and recording, together with its use of extended playing techniques, multiple guitar overdubs and constant experimentation resulted in the band experiencing their own fugue state.

Fugues is the soundtrack to being lost in the wilderness under an unrelenting sun, surrendering to the hallucinations which form as mirages upon an infinite horizon.

Whilst heavy and often overwhelming, this is mesmerising listening, striking an expert balance between hypnotic repetition and thematic evolution.
