MARTIKOR Releases New Single "Soothing Rattle"

MARTIKOR have released their new single "Soothing Rattle" on all streaming platforms. The song is taken from their new album Acedia, out now.

The band comments: "Soothing Rattle" is about the dark moments that we all experience. For me personally, it explores moments of doubt and instability. While they can be tormenting, I've come to see them as soothing and liberating when viewed from a different perspective. It's like meditating through pain! This juxtaposition is the inspiration behind "Soothing Rattle".

Listen to "Soothing Rattle" here:


MARTIKOR is a post-metal project, currently based in the bay area, San Francisco. MARTIKOR began as a solo project of Lenn (the band’s main composer), and the first album Soliloquy, was released on September 8th, 2023. The band’s musical style is influenced by various genres including Post-Metal, Post-Rock, Sludge Metal, Black Metal, Shoegaze, Doom Metal, and Electronic/Ambient textures. MARTIKOR combines dark atmospheric elements with the heaviness that comes with extreme music. It continuously explores experimental sounds and textures, aiming to manifest the intricacies of human emotions through various forms of musical and visual art and utilize art for self-exploration.

In MARTIKOR's compositions, Lenn uses not only music, but visual art and film as some of the main sources of inspiration. Some musical influences are from the heavy world, like NEUROSIS, OATHBREAKER, AMENRA, SUMAC, YOB, ABSENT IN BODY, THE BODY, LINGUA IGNOTA, etc. Other musical influences are classical, neoclassical, ambient, electronic, and experimental music.
