The third full length of this US-based band led by Mike Hrubovcak known from HYPOXIA, MONSTROSITY, VILE, NADER SADEK, DIVINE RAPTURE, ABRAXAS, RUMPELSTILTSKIN GRINDER, XXX MANIAK. AZURE EMOTE unleashes a sonic masterpiece of musical devastation. The band's tertiary offering is an invigorating acid trip of extreme avant-garde metal that transcends conventional boundaries. Both puzzling and poetic, AZURE EMOTE's elaborate music paints an abstract picture of existential nihilism, while progressing even further then their previous two albums in both musicianship and ingenuity. Step outside the proverbial "box" and listen from a fresh perspective (The Third Perspective), AZURE EMOTE's darkest and most powerful opus to date!
For fans of ARCTURUS, ENSLAVED, EDGE OF SANITY, NEGURA BUNGET, THE PROJECT HATE, NE OBLIVISCARIS, ATHEIST, UNEXPECT, THY CATAFALQUE, THY DISEASE.
This is the split 7" from Arizona's LAGO and Poland's CALM HATCHERY featuring one new song from each band. This split release is released in cooperation between SELFMADEGOD RECORDS from Poland and BATTLEGROUND RECORDS from USA.
LAGO delivers a ferocious brew of classic but modernized death metal, surrounded in a blackened fog, wholly bearing an oppressive atmosphere.
CALM HATCHERY overthrows the B-side of this split with a vital slab of decimation, ?Distant Pulsation.? Continuing to revitalize their brutality with each release, the band unloads a shredding, brutal death metal wrought with bursts of technicality and grindcore-influenced tactics.
