Hells yes.  Finally, the debut LP from Locktender. Locktender is a four piece band from Cleveland, Ohio who formed in May of 2011.  Locktender play a thunderous, heavy, and at times glacially slow style of music that incorporates elements of post metal, screamo, and sludge within their sound.  Since their inception in 2011, Locktender have released a prolific amount of material including a split LP with Oaken, Wounded Knee, and Coma Regalia earlier this year, a split 10" with Brighter Arrows in 2012, a split 7" with Cassilis in 2012, and a three song cassette entitled Collected in 2012.  Kafka is the band's debut five song LP, and let me just say that this album is stunningly crushing.  Thematically, Kafka is a five song concept revolving around  Franz Kafka’s The Zürau Aphorisms.  Overall, this album is a very artisitic endeavor for the band, and the end result phenomenal.  Overall, Kafka makes for a dense soundscape of sheer brutality that's hauntingly beautifual as it is dark in nature at the same time.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
