Singapore-based Death Metal newcomers ADARRAK will release debut album Ex Oriente Lux May 27 on Satanath Records (physical) and Blood Blast Distribution (digital). The album’s first single, “Bereft,” will be released on April 1. A teaser video for “Bereft” is available at youtu.be/T62GTwns_nQ
On Ex Oriente Lux, ADARRAK showcases a mixture of established (Headcrusher, Norse, The Amenta, Dispiteous, Sol de Sangre, Somnium Nox) and emerging musicians that are both local and global. The album boasts guest appearances by Marty Friedman of Megadeth fame, as well as other local musicians (Üllermach, Boxchild).
The album was mixed and mastered by the one and only Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios. Says Swanö about the forthcoming album: “Adarrak is truly progressive since they are not afraid to implement all kinds of metal into the mix, anything from epic leads to insane blast parts.”
Teaser videos for the songs “Mettle” and “Withering” are available here and here, respectively.
For fans of the extreme yet progressive with a touch of the Gothenburg sound.
