India’s Progressive/ Mathcore quartet- ORCHID is all set to release their much-awaited album ‘Miasma’ worldwide on January 10, 2019

Orchid was formed in 2011 with an intention to play Progressive Metal with strong undertones of Mathcore and Avant-Garde Music while addressing social/ political happenings thematically. The band is now currently gearing up for the release of their much-awaited full length album- Miasma’ that is set to be unveiled on January 10, 2019.

Speaking of the album, the band comments, “The album was mixed by the Mumbai-based Apurv Agrawal (Shepherd, Death by Fungi, False Flag) and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Atheist, Origin, Krallice, Dysrhythmia) at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves studio in New York. The artwork was done by the band’s drummer and contains elements from every song the song on the album. Unlike the previous EP which touched upon themes of techno-surrealism, this album is more straightforward with sociopolitical themes.”

For fans of:… Cardiacs…
Definitely hearing that influence in the track “Sugar Pill”.

The first EP and the “Miasma” album are incredible pieces of work!
