Combining elements of technical extreme metal, Industrial, & avant-garde into a whirlwind of bombastic audio atrocities.
Founded in September of 2014 by Otto Kinzel & Erik Martin; they had 1,000 miles between them (Otto living outside of Boston, MA and Erik living in Hot Springs, AK) the duo set out to create a sound that captured the brutal and complex elements of their favorite extreme metal artists, with all songwriting and collaboration done via the internet. The result is the 2016 debut album Evocation. The album captures all the macabre & occult atmospheres that inspired Erik's lyrics and vocal delivery, as well as the musical complexity that has become a staple of Otto's compositions.
Evocation is the first chapter in what will inevitably be an epic story of evolution.
