(active from 2007 to present) 1. Kuato are a four piece post rock group from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. They formed in the winter of 2010 with the intention of sharing their personal brand of instrumental music with the world. Drawing heavy influences from fellow post-rock acts such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Tortoise, Mogwai, and Russian Circles; Kuato creates a powerful, unique experience for their listeners. Intense dynamic changes, harmonized guitar melodies, heavy hitting drums, and driving bass are all major staples of the group. Their first EP, released on October 25, 2010, was met with almost instant critical acclaim.
Within only two months of its release, it was chosen by critics from the Halifax independent newspaper, "The Coast", for their "Best Albums of 2010" list. 2. Kuato were formed in 2007, by Nick Thornley (formerly of Moth), Dan Livesey and Mark Bates. Their first mini-album, Bad News, draws the bands various rock, dance, folk and electronica influences together, along with a slightly unhealthy obsession of sci-fi films, to create an eclectic yet accessible mix of songs.
