VIDEO PREMIERE: Antithetical Swiss post-metal conglomerate Palmer deliver "Divergent"

Palmer - a band persistently forging their sound towards perfection for the last 16 years. This Swiss quartet is no typical four-four time metal combo straight off the rack. Palmer’s sound oscillates somewhere between post-metal and prog-rock with spherical timbres. This band works intuitively and without restraints and their creations reflect an energy of immediate presence.

Their new album ‘Surrounding The Void’ contains 9 songs that boast originality. Inspired by di­fferent niches from the world of extreme metal, prog-rock, jazz and ambient sounds, Palmer have always followed their own distinct path, continually looking towards the future and pursuing their own individual Soundscape. ‘Surrounding The Void’ reflects Palmer’s typical aspects such as tension, relief and extreme dynamics. These core aspects are immediately apparent on the new album and seem even more mature and distinct.

Surrounding The Void’ is due for world wide release on 24th February 2017 through Czar of Bullets and you can check out the brilliant new video for “Divergent” below.  If you’re a fans of Gojira, Knut, Tool, Mastodon, Voivod, Isis set a soundtrack of Philip K Dick movie, then this is the band for you.  For the record, this album slays.  Be sure to buy/preorder the album here
