From the onset of “Faces Turn Away”, an all-encompassing sense of existential terror and claustrophobic anxiety hits you and builds to a crescendo before everything descends into dread and finally nothingness. An album about the misery, futility, and madness of modern urban life, related in some ways to releases by netra but foregoing much of the trip-hop influence for a more abrasive and gritty black metal root that feels both urgent and cavernous. Besides its Black Metal root, the album also knows when to slow to a crawling funeral dirge to convey total despair and the loss of hope. A modern take on classic black metal marked by unconventional and enigmatic twists that are both genuine and timely.

Kassad first began with an EP entitled “Humans” in January 2016, A year later, Kassad released “Faces Turn Away”, the debut album independently on Bandcamp. Now, a few months later Kassad’s debut album will be released on Hypnotic Dirge in a 4 panel sleeve with a booklet and sticker.

Album release is set for July 6, 2017 in a limitation of 300 copies.
Recommended for fans of: netra, Burzum, Darkspace

***

Dès les premières notes de « Faces Turn Away », une terreur existentielle frappe tous nos sens, mêlée à une anxiété proche de la claustrophobie, montant en crescendo avant de retomber dans l'effroi et s'évanouir dans le néant. L'album se nourrit de la misère, de la futilité et de la folie associées à la vie

urbaine moderne; un récit qui s'apparente aux albums du groupe netra mais qui sacrifie le côté trip-hop pour s'en tenir purement au côté abrasif et brut propre aux racines du black metal, ce qui lui donne un caractère à la fois urgent et caverneux. En plus savoir manier le black metal, Kassad sait quand ralentir la cadence et nous le démontre sur l'album en invoquant des hymnes funèbres qui entonnent à la fois détresse et désespoir. Une interprétation moderne du black metal, on retrouve sur « Faces Turn Away » une certaine dose d'éléments atypiques et énigmatiques qui apportent à la fois fraîcheur et équilibre.

Kassad a sorti un premier EP, « Human », en janvier 2016. Une année plus tard, le groupe sortait son premier album « Faces Turn Away » de manière indépendante sur Bandcamp. L'album aura enfin droit au traitement CD via Hypnotic Dirge, qui le sortira avec boîtier cartonné de 4 panneaux avec livret et autocollant.

La date de sortie est prévue pour le 6 juillet 2017 et l'album sera limité à 300 exemplaires.

Recommandé pour les fans de : netra, Burzum et Darkspace.
