  • Khôrada – Salt

    Khôrada – Salt
    Label: Prophecy Productions ‎– PRO227
    Format: 2 × CD, Album, Limited Edition, Cloth binding, Hardcover
    Country: Germany
    Released: 20 Jul 2018
    Style: Progressive Metal, Alternative Rock

    Rising from the ashes of Agalloch and Giant Squid, a new group is born: Khôrada. Featuring former Agalloch members Don Anderson (guitar), Jason Walton (bass) and Aesop Dekker (drums) alongside ex-Giant Squid guitarist / vocalist Aaron John Gregory, Khôrada creates colossal, textured, and emotionally powerful music.
    As a completely fresh concept, Khôrada is an opportunity for the musicians to explore new soundscapes while challenging themselves creatively. With their debut album “Salt”, Khôrada forges breathtaking swathes of sound that swell, stretch, submerge and recede with panoramic power.

    At once atmospheric, aggressive and apocalyptic, the album’s emotion is driven by the band members’ view of today’s world; these are precarious times. “Salt” was written under the pressure and uncertainty of the beginning of the Trump-era, standing as a musical exploration of the routine madness we now live. Paired with the surreally visceral artwork of internationally renowned painter & sculptor Cedric Wentworth, the visual explorations prove to be as haunting as the ethereal vocals of Aaron himself.

    The dissolution of two of America’s most beloved underground groups has resulted in the formation of perhaps the scene’s most highly anticipated new band. With a sound built upon a resolute sense of purpose, Khôrada has arrived.

    Edition:
    – 2CD book edition (cloth binding, hardcover), 18x18cm, 36 pages with enhanced artwork, liner notes and bonus track (700 copies available).

    Tracklist:

    1. Edeste
    2. Seasons Of Salt
    3. Water Rights
    4. Glacial Gold

    Except “Eschatology” composed by Dave Phillips

    Satori, continuing a project first started in the 1980’s founding member Dave Kirby brings an onslaught of industrial soundscapes, pounding drums and a dystopian vision of a world commited to destroying itself.
    Comprising a mixture of harsh noise and power electronics with a harder and heavier percussive beat than before Satori enter 2018 with a collection of new songs “Dispossession” based on the physical and mental disconnect facing everyone in the modern world. A constant pervasive undercurrent of violence, the feeling of a society on the brink of a total meltdown and the fears and torments of the powerless individual.
