Words by Fred Pessaro
In today’s climate of information now and sub-sub-sub-sub-genre within music, it makes total sense that a band like Sannhet, who incorporates so many different elements of music, would exist. I always think of Sannhet as the quintessential post-everything band: elements of post-rock and post-metal mix with hardcore and black metal to create a whole new sound that brings to mind bands like Russian Circles, yet veer into a path of their own. Despite their toes being dipped in so many different waters, Sannhet is far from contrived, creating epic and organic instrumental songs that open up and reveal themselves in about half the time that many long-winded post-rock peers do. Did I mention they rip too?
