“Combining the best elements of chaotic hardcore and visceral metalcore , Austin-based Koningsor are set to release a new, self-titled EP, their first release since 2019. While only two tracks long, Koningsor packs in all the raw emotion of a full “The Venerable Mr. Locust” is packed with finger twisting arpeggios and precisely timed drums that create a sense of tension for the listener. Chord progressions throughout break up an otherwise chaotic track into moments the listener and adequately grasp. “Japan Japan” is a mathy smack in the face, which quickly morphs through several variations before hitting a bit of melody.
They do make subtle use of clean vocals, treading the line between complete chaos and control” –Metal Injection
“The Texas mathcore unit is the latest in a lineage of alternative aggressors like Dillinger Escape Plan, Protest The Hero, and Heavy Heavy Low Low. In a short five years, the band has refined their frenzied musical assault, showcasing their ability to work in sonic spaz into a succinct songwriting.” –Knotfest
“Silent Pendulum has released music by The Number Twelve Looks Like You, Heavy Heavy Low Low, meth., and others, and if you dig those bands (or The Dillinger Escape Plan, Botch, Converge, etc, ect), you’re probably gonna like the chaotic mathcore of Koningsor’s new song “The Venerable Mr Locust.” It’s a killer track that’ll bring you right back to this genre’s early/mid 2000s heyday but sounds fresh today too.” –Brooklyn Vegan
