New York based avant-garde post-rock band Kayo Dot has officially joined the roster of Prophecy Productions. The eclectic project, spearheaded by composer and producer Toby Driver, was formed in 2003 by the members of the legendary Maudlin of the Well. Since then, Kayo Dot’s music has constantly evolved, be it through slow and massive cascades of guitars and violins, jazz and fusion experimental metal or psychedelia.
Driver's list of collaborators includes Randall Dunn (WITTR, Myrkur, Sunn 0))), Secret Chiefs 3 (Trey Spruance of Mr. Bungle), John Zorn, G. Stuart Dahlquist (Burning Witch, Asva), among many others. This diversity feeds Kayo Dot’s ability to twist and turn, leaving the listener wanting more with no limits on how it will evolve, all the while creating sounds that are both timeless and contemporary.
Toby comments: “I’m very happy and optimistic about working with Prophecy going forward. Forming a relationship with Prophecy and also becoming more closely connected with some of the major players in the European metal scene has brought up a lot of feelings that, although I haven’t engaged with in many years, still feel like home and family. We’re extremely excited to have this opportunity to bring our music to a wider audience and contribute to this universe in a positive, unique, and progressive way, and we thank Prophecy and everyone involved for believing in us, and we thank Jonathan at The Flenser for encouraging us to make this move.”
