Descend into dungeon crawling doom with Ischemic’s upcoming self-titled album
Canada’s Ischemic, purveyors of all things gloomy and dissonant, are gearing up to release their second album, a self-titled full-length on 2 April 2021.
Crafted during Lockdown, the listening experience through Ischemic is a trek through a haunted castle, every corner infested with isolation and creeping dread. Dungeon-crawling doom and sludge riffs are threaded together with creaking, subterranean passages of guitar ambiance and noise. Charging death-metal assaults relent to spell-casts of dizzying black metal. Their most DIY endeavor yet, all production, engineering, and artwork was handled by the band and close friends, resulting in this stripped-down but unrelenting collection of songs.
