Kasium- Exhale (Free Album)

Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, Kasium is an alternative rock trio causing quite a stir in their homeland due to their nostalgic blend of 90s era hard rock and metal. On their debut album, Exhale, the band pinches the best ingredients from classics such as Alice in Chains' "Dirt", Tool's "Undertow", Silverchair's "Frogstomp" and early Chevelle, stirring up a stellar mix of crunchy guitar riffs, throaty hooks, and hard hitting drums.

The band and lead singer Kieran Cooper shine brightest when they dig deep, down tune their guitars, and show their dark side. Songs like Halo, Wasted Years, Drowned, and Exhale reveal Kasium's heart and the epicenter of the band's talent. When Kieran's anguish and raw emotion is at the forefront, the rest of the band thrives around it and sound whole. That's not to say the other tracks on Exhale won't please, but those four tracks are what make the album and will show the rest of the world that these Kiwi's have what it takes.
