It is said that almost every element on Earth was formed at the heart of a star. Our bodies are made of their remnants and massive explosions in the galaxies. Everything we are originates from stardust and it continually floats through us.
We are impermanent. We are nothing more than a pattern or a process yet we are at odds with our self-perception. We choose to complicate life. We design a life of self-inflicted stress, negativity and broken habits. We constantly seek control. We do not accept what is and we do not let go of what was. We lose faith in ourselves and in our journey. There are times we wish our life away.
There is a need for change, a change Show Me A Dinosaur also felt they needed after their critically acclaimed 2011 debut “Evolvent EP” and 2014 dark, brooding masterpiece “Dust”. This genre-defying band, consummate masters at blending post-metal, post-rock, shoegaze and ambient doom, felt an unwavering desire to also explore a far more desperate and harsher black metal sound, to persuade listeners to identify what is truly important to them and shift the focus of their determination. Music that would awaken their decisiveness to fearlessly choose to walk their own path, away from those who hate, who seek only war and require the sacrifice of happiness and self-respect.
This trailblazing Saint Petersburg band, now consisting of Pavel Gorshkov (Guitar), Artem Selyugin (Guitar, Vocals), Anton Gataullin (Bass) and Aleksandr Vershinin (Drums) have evolved into one of the most intense and awe-inspiring bands in Europe. Mixed and mastered by Mikhail Kurochkin, “Show Me A Dinosaur” is a juggernaut of raw emotions and technical prowess, fueled with a sense of urgency, encouraging listeners to follow their bliss and live life to the fullest.
