Rope is the trio of Przemyslaw Chris Drazek (guitars), Robert Iwanik (electric bass, vocals) and Michael Kendrick (trap set). Formed in 1998 by Drazek and Iwanik in Poland, the two now reside in Chicago. Rope creates an inverse of crushing weight through trance-like guitar picking coupled with deep valleys of absence, light drones, frantic to grounding drumming and Iwanik's soothing bass. Intense performers, the three utilize shifts in volume and silence to evoke near-classical structures before vaulting into the near haze of cascading guitar sheets of sonic blight.
