Kosm is a five piece progressive metal band from Vancouver who are set to deliver their second EP Eyes on the InsideForming in 2016 they cite Mastodon, Tool and Gojira as some of their influences. Their first album, Cosmonaut, was influenced by the Lovecraftian tales of Cthulhu. Eyes on the Inside is based on the video game BloodborneKosm has shared the stage with SireniaBattlecrossThreat SignalGraveshadowApollyonBreaking the Silent, Ophelia Falling, and Tessitura. 

Eyes on the Inside is an engaging progressive metal album, representing a lot of what’s good about the modern prog scene. A complex and ambitious affair, Eyes on the Inside rarely loses itself in a fluffy space of self-indulgence; the songwriting remains grounded by memorable hooks and a touch of restraint. Just when you think it may be sounding too safe and polished, the band hit you with a chunky, grittier riff or fat groove to keep things honest. As expected the musicianship is outstanding, and the top notch production offers space and balance for each member to shine through complex rhythms, intricate and rippling guitar work, and prominent but tasteful vocals. Erik and Mike's exceptional guitar work adds an extra layer of nuance and character to the compositions, often stealing the limelight within deeply textured and intricate arrangements. Vocals in modern prog can often be a deal breaker for many listeners, but the smooth and assured melodic tones from Jessie Grace have an understated and emotive power that do the job nicely without straying into melodrama. 

From the concept story to the music and artwork, there is clearly a lot of thought placed into Eyes on the Inside. As such, it seems to mark a new chapter of growth, and suggests a very promising future for the band.
