CROWORD release Melodic Death Metal EP “Crimson Gaze” with live session as bonus!
CROWORD is an emerging Austrian Metal band around mastermind and bass player Lukas Rappitsch which lets resound a great and massive Melodic Death Metal symphony with their new 4 track EP “Crimson Gaze”. The new opus will be released in, 2021, via NRT Records and additionally contains the live session “Live Is More Than Just Breathing” as bonus material. This concert features eleven songs from their two previous releases, perfectly reflecting the band’s intense sound, which was strongly inspired by the Gothenburg Death Metal scene of the 1990s, merging with influences from Rock, Jazz and Classical music to create a unique blend. The harbinger of the second album planned for 2022 has been recorded at the Austrian Kochplatte Studio and Elophos Hill Studios. Andreas Koch has been responsible for the mix of the EP and none other than Jens Bogren (Fascination Street Studios), who already worked with Opeth, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy and many others, has been won over for the mastering. The songs are inspired by painters such as Egon Schiele and Arnold Böcklin, who dealt with the abysses and peaks of human nature about 100 years ago. Fans of musically and lyrically sophisticated Melodic Death Metal should definitely risk more than a listen!
The songs of CROWORD convince with diverse compositions, a proper portion of heaviness and clear melodies, which in their foundations carry the sound of great bands such as In Flames, At The Gates or Dark Tranquillity. With “Crimson Gaze” the band moves one step closer to the center of the European Melodic Death Metal scene.
