RR17 Milanku - De Fragments

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 November 1, 2015, Milanku released their third full-length album De Fragments 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.

"A lot of bands are quite unknown, which is often far away from being deserved.  So it is our job at It Djents to promote smaller artists with very good music and a lot of potential, to help them grow, and to spread their music.  Milanku is a prime example of this case.  The band has a new record out that just needs more people listening to it. Milanku is a Canadian post-Rrock band based out of Montreal.  Their latest offering entitled De Fragments features seven songs that are named in French.  The first song “Fuir les Jour” starts like a typical post-rock song, with a lot of ambient elements, like melodic guitar, playing that seem to float through the air in the form of sound waves and an increasing emotional level.  But against the feeling that this is an instrumental piece of music, you will soon recognize some vocals that are more like a noisy element, which delivers emotions and underlines the ambiance of this music.  It is needless to say that this music would also work without vocals, but the vocals are actually giving it more memorable parts and emotions than an instrumental piece of music has.  The next songs float into each other, without clean cuts, which provides an ongoing flow to the record.  It is almost hard to find the break between two songs while listening to De Fragments in its entirety.  Fans of instrumental post-rock with some progressive influences and noisy vocals – you know them from bands like Deafheaven and So Hideous - will love what Milanku are doing on this record.  But for now, stop reading, play the record, close your eyes and enjoy the beauty of De Fragments."
