Tasmanian extreme metal stalwarts, Psycroptic have announced the title and details to their 7th full length studio album, As The Kingdom Drowns. The album will be out November 9th and will be available on all digital outlets, compact disc, limited edition cassette and on five different colored LPs.
Containing nine tracks of riff-filled, technical ecstasy, the Tasmaniacs are back to reclaim their kingdom. Hear the lead-off song, "We Were The Keepers", below:
Formed by brothers Dave and Joe Haley, Psycroptic have always lived in that very small space between technical and metal. The over the top insanity peaked with their third album, 2006’s Symbols Of Failure. From there the band looked to smooth things out a bit, whether it was with some ambience or industrial elements in 2008’s Ob(Servant) or focusing in on the groove on 2012’s, The Inherited Repression. 2015’s Psycroptic seemed to encompass all that the band had done, so where does one go from there? For the band, it was somewhat easy.
The self-titled album gave the band a new and solid platform to launch off of, making experimentation easier. The hard part was where to go and just how far to take it. Singer, Jason Peppiatt comments, “As always with this band we wanted it to have the distinctive sound of a Psycroptic album but wanted to push ourselves further with adding new elements and having a darker vibe than on previous releases. I think we achieved our goal and this is something we are all very proud of!”
The new album was once again produced by J. Haley and was mixed and mastered by Will Putney. Artwork was handled by Mariusz Lewandowsky.
