We're not releasing only 1 album today, but 4 albums at once. One from Octohawk and three from Ask the Slave. And to top it all you could get all 3 albums from Ask the Slave in a box-set.
Octohawk releases their debut album, Animist. An album filled with 10 songs full of sludgy, proggy, and groovy heavy metal.
From Ask the Slave you will get their brand new progressive metal with WTF!?-factor album God Things Bad People. Also available now are the re-releases of their two first albums Kiss Your Chora (Remixed & Remastered) and The Order of Things (Remastered). Both containing bonus tracks.
All albums are available as Digipak CDs, Digital Downloads, and streaming on all major streaming services.
An animist perceives all things - animals, plants, rocks, rivers, oceans, and mountains - as animated, and it all comes to life in Octohawk’s debut album.
With Animist, the Norwegian 5-piece denotes not a single creed or doctrine but a diverse otherworldly landscape of progressive, melodic, and abrasive music. Filled with thundering beats, heavy riffs, ripping vocals, and entrancing soundscapes, Animist represents the shapeless nature of real chaos.
The album, comprised of 10 crushing tracks, is an eventful experience. Rich in content and surprises, this album will delight all fans of sludgy, proggy, and groovy heavy metal.
Detached from all boundaries, Animist soars through many metal genres - seamlessly from powerful to ethereal and back with dual momentum.
With their debut album Animist, Octohawk lays down a solid foundation for their musical universe.
