SONG PREMIERE: Kassad - "Broken"

Posted by Nick Skog on Monday, June 19, 2017 Under: Song/Video Premieres
Transcending Obscurity is now streaming the track "Broken" from the upcoming Kassad album "Faces Turn Away" - available July 6 in a 4 panel sleeve / 8 page booklet (same materials as the recent netra release)

"Rather than going for the second wave chill or the atmospheric nature oriented variants of black metal, this project reflects the grime and grit of the modern city. This is achieved through an almost industrial feel to the drum work and a warlike cadence during the faster sections, which is particularly evident on Broken. The song begins with the sound of a storm and what sounds like some electronics, letting these linger for thirty seconds before the rest of the instrumentation unleashes a storm of its own. What drew me in to this particular track is how naturally Kassad builds these layers up, as the somber melodic leads and pummeling drums continue to increase in tension until they reach an overwhelming level that feels like its submerging you into the depths of a murky harbor. "
