The Needle Drop

Surachai - Embraced

New MusicadminComment

Chicago metal outfit Surachai takes the tremolo picking and blast beats of black metal, and intensifies them with great interplay, an atomspheric recording, and anthemic melodies. The band is pretty ambitious when it comes to song lengths as well, breaching the 15-minute mark on the opening track of their new album, Embraced.

I could see fans of Litury and Krallice getting into this pretty easily, but don't be surprised if you find Surachai's compositions to have a bit more flow. I think most people will be pretty impressed with the detail and quality of the recording on this three-track affair as well, which is a process that is explained in detail right here. Enjoy!
