Minsk is a doom metal / post-metal band from Peoria, Illinois founded in 2002. Self described as 'psychedelic metal', their songs tend to start out as slow and simple, and become heavy and complex towards the end.
Their sound draws equally from sludge metal, doom metal, hardcore punk, ambient and noise music, with a highly psychedelic attitude achieved through tribal drum patterns, thick layers of synthesizers and keyboards, and echoing vocals.
Minsk tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Sep 2009.
