Official press release:
Denmark-based extreme DIY label, Indisciplinarian, has confirmed the impending release of the debut LP from their countrymates Recitation, entitled Carrion, and has issued the cover art and a visual trailer on the record.
Recitation is a new Danish outfit carrying a unique approach in their effortless blend of doom, death metal and a mind-bending psychedelic vibe. Their debut album, Carrion — a term for the post-life corpus of rotting flesh — consists of one solitary twenty-seven-minute track: the uncompromising movement that is the song “Carrion”. Thematically, it deals with the human feelings of meaninglessness and depression when confronted with the harsh reality of inevitable decay and death – a basic condition for all flesh that inhibits the earth and beyond.
The debut from Recitation is a dark and feverish journey undertaken to a music of demise – a crushing, monotonous movement through a desperate musical night, where the riffs rise as monoliths of death, telling a tale of what little time we are given. The voyage can be described as a non-linear composition consisting of a series of repetitive progressions giving way to the vibe, the riff and a slow crushing feel in a way that conjures up an experience of stretching time and presence. It’s music working on another level of being – metaphysical and yet very present in the earthly life. It’s a journey that you undertake, painfully aware, while led astray – a journey we all have to take.
Carrion will be released on vinyl in a limited edition of 300 black vinyl copies and digital formats via Indisciplinarian on October 12th, 2015, with Earsplit Distro handling the US mailorder for the album. Stand by for additional audio, preorder links and more in the coming days. View the trailer for the record below:
Recitation will play its debut show in their hometown of Copenhagen, Denmark on September 20th and has also booked a record release show for Carrion on October 10th, also in Copenhagen.
