Out Now! Newfoundland Duo ARTACH Twists The Spine of Black and Industrial Metal For A Rapturous EP “Sgrios”


Newfoundland, Canada’s black metal duo ARTACH returns this July to unleash their experimental trial to rapture fans of both black thrash and industrial metal. Entitled “Sgrios”, the four-track record is an appetizer to keep fans at bay while they work on completing their third full-length this coming Fall (to be released on vinyl via Adirondack Black Mass), and will once again feature their signature sound.

“Sgrios” might surprise some listeners as the band took on an avant-garde approach to incorporate a more black metal twist on industrial metal that the duo hadn’t heard much of and felt was something fresh and original. Bands like Rammstein, Fear Factory, and Pain for example. However, it’s still them and still has all the elements from their previous releases.

“Although Artach is, and remains, a black metal (blackened thrash) band, we wanted to take an experimental direction for the “Sgrios” EP. That direction explores industrial metal through the lens of our already-defined style. This is something fresh and original. Not a ton of Black Metal bands will have Rammstein-esque synth guitar sounds, tremolo-picked riffs, and harsh black metal vocals.” adds Sruthán (Guitar/Bass).

Lyrically, the topics explored on the “Sgrios” EP cover technology, apocalyptic themes, and some tongue-in-cheek suggestive topics (‘Sgrios” translates to English as destroy, ruin, ravage, annihilate, etc.). The “Sgrios” cover artwork has the duo in robot form in a frozen industrial wasteland. It fits with the lyrical topics for the EP perfectly.

Due out on July 6th, 2024, “Sgrios” is available at the following links:
