3 stars I discovered this Brazilian band like four years ago, but honestly, I lost track of them until some weeks ago while looking at my reviews, I saw I had reviewed one of their releases, so I did not lose time anymore and went to Labirinto's bandcamp page in order to re-discover their music and the releases I had not listened before. One of them is this EP entitled Kadjwynh released on 2012 that shows greatly the post rock and post metal tendency of this band. The EP features just 4 compositions making a total time of 20 worht-listening-minutes.

It opens with "Non Sunt Daemones", a short one minute introduction that has a dark atmosphere, spacey and nearly in the drone realm. It leads to "Tuira" which now has melody on it and the almost-mandatory emotional sound of post- rock. The music is great, with fast and atmospheric guitars while drums produce a lot of energy. At half the song there is a pause, some calm moments and then the music starts again, you know, slowly progressing until reaching a brief climax. "Piam Ket" starts with the same sound of the previous song's last seconds, however it changes later, becoming a bit noisy and then heavier, reminding me a bit of 65daysofstatic.

The last song is a ten-minute post rock feast entitled "Cairo", in which we can enjoy to another face of Labirinto, because there are strings that make a beautiful combination between classical music and post rock, creating somber and disarming atmospheres at the same time; the music has different stations, I mean, passages that produce a diversity of images and textures, all of them beautifully composed and structured. I think this song is wonderful, and demonstrates that Labirinto is a great post rock band that might not have the awareness of others big names, but that has to be discovered by fans of this genre.

My final grade will be three stars. Enjoy it!
