Conundrum is the solo project of musician Kevin Emms (The Hallowed Catharsis) from the West Coast of Canada. Primarily a drummer, Kevin has been writing music since he was a child, and has performed in bands ranging in styles from jazz to brutal death metal. In Conundrum, he uses this project to showcases his most personal musical expression.
The music of Conundrum takes inspiration from dark and brooding Swedish bands such as Opeth, Katatonia and Shining as well as melancholy English bands like My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost and Anathema. Underpinning these influences is an affinity for black metal that creeps to the surface.
With the release of Sabotage, his second studio EP, Conundrum goes into darker, more depressive territory. The album is about experiencing deep personal trauma and attempting to work through it.
