After two years of touring the world, Carpathian have returned with their most soulful and pensive effort to date, the "Wanderlust" 7"EP. Recorded in their home of Melbourne by Drew Parsons, the effort was shipped over to the states where Jay Mass ("Isolation" engineer) handled the final mixing duties.
From the first ringing notes, it's apparent that Carpathian have grown into a darker and more reflective band since the release of "Isolation". Crushing opener "Wanderlust" clutches a potent musical weight and grit that is a true progression Carpathian. While "Iron Heart" screams with emotion, ultimately becoming blatantly heavy without being remotely predictable. The nearly epic "Monochrome" shows why less can be more in contemporary heavy music. With Carpathian allowing their newly discovered discordant guitar work swell and build throughout this memorable melancholy anthem.
Altogether "Wanderlust" is a special effort. Not an EP placeholder between albums, but the sound of a band searching for their own unique collective voice. Within that, Carpathian, whether conscious of it or not, are becoming something truly special in the process.
