Renowned for the passion and quality of their live performances, leading Spanish alternative act TERROLOKAUST exemplify powerful programming, expressive and versatile vocals, and an explicit understanding of how to successfully hybridize rock and electronica.
Mixed and co-produced by Andy LaPlegua (COMBICHRIST/ICON OF COIL) and mastered by Krischan Wesenberg (ROTERSAND/FUTURE LIED TO US), expectation is already sky-high for the band’s long-awaited fifth album “The Chasm” – which comes out on DWA this June…
In 2016, TERROLOKAUST’s 4th album “Dissensions” resulted in a first ever #1 album for both band and label on the Deutsche Alternative Charts – amidst a steady stream of festival appearances around Europe.
Topping a #1 is a tall order for any artist. Seeking to create something that would sound slightly different from their previous albums, for “The Chasm” the band tapped longtime friend and fan Andy LaPlegua to lend his production skills to the record. For someone as busy as the singer of COMBICHRIST, finding time to get this done was always destined to take a while – but the powerful end product speaks for itself. Given a finishing touch at the audio mastering stage by another longtime friend Krischan Wesenberg, the resulting sonic depth of “The Chasm” is destined and designed to swallow you whole.
Monochromatic artwork offset with gold detail for this release comes from DWA’s lead designer Vlad McNeally, and the first 200 copies of the CD version come in strictly limited edition foil-embossed digifile with an 8-page lyric/photo booklet.
This collector’s item package ALSO includes a bonus limited edition CDEP containing an additional 3 completely new tracks pressed on the same eye-catching clear-substrate CD format of several DWA releases in recent years.
The Barcelona-based duo of Javi (vocals) and Indio (programming/guitar) plus live guitarist Aury and drummer Angel are now confirmed as one of the opening acts for the European leg of COMBICHRIST’s “One Fire” world tour – performing tracks from “The Chasm” for the first time, prior to the band’s biggest show so far at the famed M’era Luna festival in Germany this August.
