KASBEK is a mountain in the heart of the Caucasus.
KASBEK is the place where Prometheus was chained to a rock while an eagle gnawed at his regrowing liver each day as a punishment for stealing fire from the gods and gifting it to mankind.
KASBEK is also the new album of Berlin’s Golden Apes, the release of which may not incidentally mark the 20th year of their existence.
The connection? Later...
Two decades is a long time and means a long journey and there are not many bands in existence who’ve maintained the motivation to shoulder both and survive unscathed. And maybe it´s this persistence that, undeterred by trends and commercial temptations, by private setbacks and the fast pace of current times, is the proof that idealism and passion, creativity and a vision are the fertile ground on which art can thrive, self-determined and free from interfering influences.
Gothic Rock, Darkwave, Post-Punk…while others vociferously changed dresses and flags again and again, GOLDEN APES let their music speak for itself. Vast and elegiac, noisy and rough, shimmering and porous. And while doing that they always stayed modest with the attention of the media, but eloquent and determined with their own demands.
GOLDEN APES were never a front cover-band, never a chart-topper, never compatible with the current dancefloor, but if you examine the texture of their music, this symbiosis of stylistic nonconformity and lyrics rich with metaphors, you will begin to see that they never intended to be. It seems it was always about something else…
