Incoming: Krieg – The Isolationist

Order Krieg – The Isolationist

2010 WILL BRING KRIEGS NEW RECORD THE ISOLATIONIST WHICH WILL BE THE MOST CHALLENGING AND BIZARRE RELEASE TO DATE, CONTINUALLY PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF BLACK METAL. Recorded at Volume Studios in Chicago, the near hour long The Isolationist will challenge the listener with its primitive yet complex sound. It is the band’s sixth full-length recording and first since 2006’s Blue Miasma. Working with producer Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican, Yakuza), The Isolationist finds Krieg further experimenting with sound. The rage and dissonance fans have come to expect from the New Jersey band emerges even more frenzied making the journey through this album far more intense than on previous efforts. The Isolationist features performances from guitarist Joseph Van Fossen (Noctuary), bassist Wrest (Leviathan), and drummer Chris Grigg (Woe). Krieg has been an integral part of the American black metal scene since forming in 1995. In addition to their full-length albums, including 2003’s acclaimed The Black House (Terrorizer Magazine noted it as “one of the ten most important American black metal records”), Krieg has recorded and released numerous demos, split and live recordings. Fans tally more than 40 individual items as part of the band’s creative efforts. In addition to Krieg, vocalist Lord Imperial has several other band projects including N.i.l., Apothecary.Sound.Lodge and his doom band March Into the Sea. He is also a member of Twilight (along with members of Leviathan, Xasthur, Nachtmystium and Draguar).
