About Vinland

Comets Ov Cupid is a Kosmische Music project by Jason Kesselring, formerly of Space Rock group Skye Klad and wyrd folk project The Satyrswitch. Darkly cosmic, the music evokes a sense of eternal twilight while creating a sonic landscape of distorted voices, cosmic pulse, and hazy drones. Guitar based in composition the sounds range from full blown metalgazer walls of sound to ethereal astral folk.

NEW COMETS OV CUPID “SCYTHIAN EP”

New Comets Ov Cupid EP. Over the last few years Comets Ov Cupid has taken on a power trio formation to play more metallic instrumental Space Rock pieces. Erik Wivinus (bass) and Matt Entsminger (drums) both hailing from the legendary Minneapolis Space Rock Band Thunderbolt Pagoda. Erik and Matt bring forth a volcanic energy that really moves Comets into some exciting new territory. I hope you enjoy. Dave Onnen of Thunderbolt Pagoda at the recording helm. Best when played loud.

Comets Ov Cupid review Reviler.org

Very kind words for the new Comets Ov Cupid track “Scorpius! “By my friend Adam Johnson at Reviler.org . Check it out! Review

6. Comets ov Cupid – “Scorpius” (July, 2017)

2017

In preparation of a long-awaited physical release, North Dakota transplant Jason Kesselring offers up another single self-produced six-string divination.

I have to admit outright that Jason is probably my favorite active guitarist in the Twin Cities at moment, and that fact is going to color my opinion, inside, outside, and inbetween all the lines. Nobody else around towns takes the guitar into the territories he does, not quite; and when he’s not slinging celestial lightning bolts with Thunderbolt Pagoda, Kesselring builds and destroys worlds with his main solo gig as Comets ov Cupid.

Fed by King Crimson, Neu!, and the Hubble Telescope, “Scorpius” rides a slide guitar glides through a spacial swara of feedback, never quite beginning or ending. Kesselring has a pronounced talent for building atmosphere, and his latest blueprint is already looking strong and sultry. I’m to understand a full-band release is quietly under construction at moment. So until you and I can get our grubby earthen paws on that piece of stardust, “Scorpius” and its seven-month-separated sibling “Unicursal Hexagram” will have to do for now.
