AZUSA: Heavy Yokes (CD)

Price 119,-
Please select

Members of Extol, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Sea + Air joined their creative forces and will sonically shock you with one of most experimental and mesmerizing releases of this year! Azusa’s debut album titled “Heavy Yoke” was released on November 16 2018 via Indie Recordings, and the record’s first single and music video “Interstellar Islands” was premiered on Thursday, Aug 16.

With “Interstellar Islands”, Azusa takes you into an exploration of dissonant, eerie musical universes; it’s a trip to inner and outer space, an interstellar sensory experience.

A carnival of contrast, Azusa make captivating music with unconventional nerve. Uniting the complementary skills of its members, Azusa’s sound is a thrash-fusion tour de force. Can you imagine Kate Bush fronting Slayer; Death collaborating with Annette Peacock? These allegedly incongruent influences dissolve seamlessly in an alluring sonic alchemy.

Uncompromisingly experimental, Azusa’s curated approach showcases each member's unique strengths as a reaction to previous endeavors, more so than an extension of them.

Reflecting on life’s existential mysteries, Azusa’s lyrics seek to explore cognitive dissonances at the crossroads of upbringing, mysticism, belief and betrayal. Defying expectations by embracing contradiction, Azusa finds strength in vulnerability, harmony in dissonance and melody in discord.
