Death metal band Azaab was formed in Pakistani back in 2016 but today have announced the release of their debut album ‘Summoning the Cataclysm’ as well as the artwork.
The band states, “We initially came together for our love of both old school and modern death metal. However, the core of the band have known each other for many years with members playing for various bands.” The upcoming full-length, “straddles the gray areas between old school and technical, melodic and brutal. It’s an earthquake of different influences blended together through proficient musicianship”.
The artwork has also been released:
Indonesian drummer Adhytia Perkasa from the legendary act SiksaKubur joined the group as a studio session drummer, adding Southeast Asian aggression and flair to the music. His percussion adds the perfect backdrop to the engaging guitar-work while Saad’s deep growls are reminiscent of the classic days of brutal death metal.
Structurally, the songs follow unconventional paths, shifting tempos and amalgamating the different sonic influences along the way. The music depicts an ominous and vile atmosphere, using both harmonic and dissonant progressions with the blast beats, as well as key changes and even some more traditional melodies. Throughout the 9 songs, Azaab delivers something for all death metal fans.
The Debut full length is set for release sometime in the Spring of 2022 through Satanath Records (Russia), Maxima Musi Pro (Indonesia), and Tikoes Kecemploeng Prod (Indonesia).
