Raum Kingdom: Everything and Nothing

Even though this is technically the band’s debut album, they have been making a splash since 2014 when they released their self-titled EP. I liked that album, mostly because the band has a knack for creating songs that are haunting, aching, and heavy. I would probably describe them as post-metal but labels can be limiting, especially with a band like this.

Everything and Nothing is a strong debut. I was especially fond of “Winter,” one of the tracks that really captures this band’s overall sound and features some nice guest vocals by Mia Govoni. “Winter” shows off every side of Raum Kingdom’s songwriting, including their mellower qualities. The album’s most ambitious track is probably “Struggle,” partly because it clocks in at just over 11 minutes and partly because it stretches the band’s songwriting the most. Long tracks can be tricky, but Raum Kingdom takes advantage of the chance to stretch things out with ambience and occasional droning. The rest of the album is strong. I especially enjoyed “Dig” and “Hidden Pain.”

Sometimes newer bands need time to develop and hone their sound but Raum Kingdom comes to us more developed than most. I’d suggest checking out “Winter” or “Dig” to see what you think. This band is worth exploring.
