Akron, Ohio-based doom/sludge metal merchants RADIAN — featuring former members of Fistula, Rue, and Sofa King Killer — will unleash their devastating debut full-length, Chapters, next month.
Like matter in space knows no gravity; like the thunder above that shakes the Earth below, RADIAN exists unbound. Chapters was recorded by Dave Johnson AKA Big Metal Dave (Midnight, Axioma, Brain Tentacles) at Bad Back Studio in Cleveland, Ohio and mixed and mastered by Sean Sullivan (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beck) at Sound By Sully in Los Angeles, California. At once gargantuan sounding and unsettling, Chapters delivers five heaving tracks of relentless hardcore-infused, doom sludge. “We just wanted to experiment with different tones and take listeners on a journey,” issues the band. “From heavy vibes to emotional vibes. They are chapters. Stories. Musical voyages as well as songs.”
Chapters will be self-released digitally on February 6th. In advance of its release, the band has released “Hearts Of Metropolis” for public consumption noting of the track, “‘Hearts Of Metropolis’ roars like the soundtrack to the blue collar battle for life.”
