SCHAMMASCH have today released the video for the second track from their upcoming album, Hearts of No Light. Titled A Paradigm of Beauty, the track is available on all streaming services now, whilst the video is premiering exclusively via Decibel Magazine. Hearts Of No Light is released via Prosthetic Records on November 8. Pre-order HERE.
Of the track, SCHAMMASCH mastermind, C.S.R comments:
“A Paradigm Of Beauty, to me, is the most abstract piece I’ve written so far, but at the same time it was the most naturally flowing writing I’ve ever experienced. I couldn’t write anything more honest and natural than that.”
The video is published alongside an in-depth interview with C.S.R that discusses the band’s visual aesthetic and the path of their creativity. A special Decibel edition of Hearts of No Light is available to purchase in celebration of SCHAMMASCH making their U.S debut at this December’s Decibel Metal & Beer Festival in Los Angeles.
Following on from the monolithic might of their previous album, Triangle, Hearts Of No Light is presented over nine tracks, and lays its foundation in the heights of their past work. Showcasing their most flowing and organic approach to date – jet-black at its core while vast and expansive in experimentation – Hearts Of No Light presents the boldest statement from SCHAMMASCH yet.
Hearts Of No Light is available now for pre-order, including exclusive limited vinyl colours and t-shirt bundles.
Pre-order Hearts Of No Light HERE.
