RR11 Milanku - Pris À La Gorge

Formed in Quebec during the fall of 2006, Milanku is a five-piece band from Montreal that combines elements of hardcore and post-rock to create a captivating dynamic throughout their music that is extremely raw, yet oddly comfortable. The band orchestrates genuine moments of aggression and melancholy in order to question where mankind is headed and capture the true essence of human struggle in modern society.

On March 1, 2013, Milanku released their second full-length album Pris À La Gorge on vinyl through Replenish Records.  100% of the proceeds from the digital downloads of the album will be donated to Compassion Over Killing at http://www.cok.net in order to help promote a plant-based diet and expose the routine abuses forced upon animals raised for food through undercover investigations inside factory farms and legal advocacy.

“On Pris À La Gorge, Quebec act Milanku craft extremely solid post-metal-type post-rock, with a couple moments during this nearly hour-long affair that elevate them from just "bon" to "très bon."  These guys remind me of a heavier envy, because they're essentially shouting a foreign language over a dark downbeat.  It's nonetheless awesome at times.  Opener "La Chute" is a great example summing up what the band does so well: roll along at a slower tempo with moody, atmospheric rhythms that give way into harsh, growled, crushing juggernauts that warrant comparisons to Isis or Cult of Luna.”  Punknews

"Milanku back with a new record: Pris À La Gorge.  This is a new step in the journey of the group.  Just to see the cover, we already feel that more has been reached and a professional recording that gives all the credit to the musical quality of the band.  What is the result?  Probably one of the best independent albums in the most wicked scene in Montreal this year.  And that is definitely not said often!  The art of performing a musical transition without stumbling or grinding the ear.  We love it, we, traveling without leaving our living room. Basically, this is truly a must in every sense of the term."  Vakarme
