As the unforgiving summer heat rolls on, we continue to fill the void with discordant and eclectic Black Metal. Our latest release - the debut album from the English project "Kassad" - is now officially released as of today! You can head over to our shop to pick up the CD - presented in a thin but very sturdy 4 panel sleeve, which comes with an 8 page booklet made of hardened cardboard-like material, or alternatively pick up the limited Kassad shirt that was designed for this release, or if you really like what you hear, there is also a Kassad pack available completed with the CD, shirt, and sticker.
As always, now that the release date has hit, the album is available on Bandcamp for free and unlimited streaming and download! Donations are not necessary but if you enjoy the music, a dollar or two would be very much appreciated and all funds go towards upcoming releases and merch items!
From the onset of “Faces Turn Away”, an all-encompassing sense of existential terror and claustrophobic anxiety hits you and builds to a crescendo before everything descends into dread and finally nothingness. An album about the misery, futility, and madness of modern urban life, related in some ways to releases by netra but foregoing much of the trip-hop influence for a more abrasive and gritty black metal root that feels both urgent and cavernous. Besides its Black Metal root, the album also knows when to slow to a crawling funeral dirge to convey total despair and the loss of hope. A modern take on classic black metal marked by unconventional and enigmatic twists that are both genuine and timely.
Kassad first began with an EP entitled “Humans” in January 2016, A year later, Kassad released “Faces Turn Away”, the debut album independently on Bandcamp. Now, a few months later Kassad’s debut album will be released on Hypnotic Dirge in a 4 panel sleeve with a booklet and sticker.
Album release is set for July 6, 2017 in a limitation of 300 copies.
Recommended for fans of: netra, Burzum, Darkspace.
