Official press release:
Highly regarded blackened hardcore band Calligram have announced their debut LP and signing to Basick Records. Askesis – set to be released on November 24 – is a viciously dark and atmospheric ride through bleakened lands of sonic destruction, a sound that has already seen the band championed by Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, and more.
To celebrate the news, the band streamed new video “Scourge” via Metal Hammer. Watch it here now:
Askesis is certainly a record that’s suitably deserving of such a grandiose introduction. Led by the Italian Matteo Rizzardo’s tortured shrieking vocals, Calligram are a band not for the faint of heart. However, like all good musicians, Calligram know when to hold back as much as push forward.
Askesis was recorded in February 2017 at The Ranch Production House with Lewis Johns (Rolo Tomassi, Svalbard, Employed To Serve) & mastered by Audiosiege’s Brad Boatright (Trap Them, Mutoid Man, Nails).
Pre-order your copy today via Bandcamp.
Askesis track listing:
