OCCULT HARD ROCKERS ACÂRASH STREAM ENTIRE ALBUM AHEAD OF RELEASE

Acârash - In Chaos Becrowned CD

With a couple of days to go before its release on June 8th, Dark Essence Records are streaming the debut full-length album from Occult Hard Rockers ACÂRASH in its entirety.  Titled “In Chaos Becrowned”, and mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem at the Caliban Studios in Oslo, the album can be heard below and at https://acarash.bandcamp.com/album/in-chaos-becrowned

 

ACÂRASH, whose lineup comprises Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals, was formed in Oslo in the fall of 2016. By seamlessly blending hard rock, doom and black metal, ACÂRASH  creates  soundscapes in which esoteric poetry and ritualistic contemplation are central to the music.  And, with “In Chaos Becrowned”, the band  demonstrates a marked ability to reinvent, whilst at the same time  preserve, in order to deliver a record that explores and develops the boundaries of rock and metal, and naturally alternates between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive playfulness.

Here is what ACÂRASH themselves have to say about their debut album:

“Born in darkness and ritual suffering, this album is a procession through demonic, blackened parts of the human experience and beyond.

“It is also a straightforward heavy metal feast and pilgrimage, while honouring occult naturalism and the concept of chaos and mortality.

“In Chaos Becrowned”  is a ceremonial welcome to the tombs of ACÂRASH.  An unholy sacrament and a celebration of free spirits.

“At the end of the day this album is for the true headbanger and the last rebellious souls among us”.

 With artwork by Lasse Almqvist Scherven, “In Chaos Becrowned” is available in Digi, CD and LP formats.  Tracklisting as follows:

OCCULT HARD ROCKERS ACÂRASH DEBUT A TRACK FROM THEIR UPCOMING ALBUM

With the 8th June set for the release of “In Chaos Becrowned”,  the debut full-length album from Norwegian Occult Hard Rockers ACÂRASH, Dark Essence Records have given fans a taste of what to expect by revealing the opening track ” Cadaver Dei”, about which the band has this to say:

Cadaver Dei” is our way of welcoming you to the tomb of ACÂRASH. The track is a celebration of the free spirit and the will to rebel against all that reduces life.
