One of our favorites from Hong Kong – dissonant death metal band Karmacipher has just signed to Hong Kong record label Infree Records becoming the newly minted label’s debut signing.
The band previously released their phenomenal debut album Necroracle back in 2016 and that record continues to be on heavy rotation here at Unite Asia to this day.
They followed it up a year later with an EP entitled 陣獄.
Infree Records has today premiered the first track None off the band’s brand new album entitled Introspecturm which hits shelves on April 30. Pre-orders for both the gatefold double LP and CD can be found at the following link: https://infreerecords.com/product/karmacipher-introspectrum-gatefold-2lp-vinyl
According to the label:
“‘Introspectrum’ is their second full-length album. The title is a combination of the words ‘Introspect’ and ‘Spectrum’, which can be considered a spectrum of karma. The album deals with life, a sense of time elapsing, and an irresistible helplessness of cognition in this modern universal environment, and how we are all worshiping the vessel of paradox.
This time, the band has invited the french drummer Kévin Paradis (Benighted, ex-Svart Crown) to lay down the drum tracks. The music is more brutal but depressive, more filthy but progressively structured than their previous work.
The artwork was created by French artist Stefan Thanneur (Chaos Echœs), the cover art displays the concept of entropy, which totally relates to an interaction between time and the human mind. We can’t live apart from memories, we are now seemingly rebuilding the tower of Babel, and continue to sanctify those failures.”
