The Cold Claws Of Oblivion, EMANATA‘s fourth EP, is an altogether heavier offering than the group’s first three records. Kicking off with the appropriately-titled Nemesis, the quartet launches into an unapologetic groove, over-driven to the hilt. The heat comes off for the rolling beats of Feet & Mish and the effervescent Felurian (based on a mythical succubus). Kanashibari (meaning ‘sleep paralysis’ in Japanese) culminates in a funky as fudge hip-hop vibe, before Black Cat closes the record on a more positive, afro-flecked note.
