Arizona deathcore band KARDASHEV return with their second full-length, "Liminal Rite"

Tempe, Arizona’s deathcore acolytes KARDASHEV kick off a busy summer with the release of their remarkable full-length album, "Liminal Rite". The latest masterpiece from the group comes just shy of seven years after the release of their acclaimed debut, "Peripety", which was hailed by critics for its singular vision and remarkably cohesive approach to blending crushing atmospheric weight with melodic and frenetic progressive death metal. 

Liminal Rite explores how the past can both wound and seduce, leading us down a path of self-destruction. It’s an anecdotal tale from a fictional man’s perspective late in life on how perception and reality do not always coalesce. His experience tells a larger message of how our minds often create a false view of the past. Sean’s narration is him expressing the man’s perception and recollection of life. The failure of his memory, the nature of dementia, and how it plays into his experience are all encapsulated by the narrative sections. (Sean Lang - drummer)

KARDASHEV's album "Liminal Rite", it's a glittering gauntlet they’ve thrown down in a praise of all things heavy as the night. Dark and menacing, "Liminal Rite" is a thunderous festival of riffs, rife with nefarious abandon and splayed across seven astral-kissed tracks to consume the souls of metalheads everywhere.

The guitarist Notes Mirolla unveils his thoughts about the single "Compost Grave-song":

Compost Grave-Song’ illuminates the point of no return in The Lost Man’s descent into regret, anger, and madness. He is lucid. He is awake. The Lost Man finds himself standing in the spot where his father knelt so many years ago. Guilt masked by anger grabs him by the chest and he curses the earth beneath him. The death of his brother rises to the surface of his mind as a cloud of locusts swarms a field, ripping and tearing until all hunger is satiated. He clutches a stone and sees the ghostly effigy of his father’s hand doing the same. Images of the tragedy that took his brother away flood The Lost Man, and he remembers the fury of his father as the truth was laid bare. But… what was it, that grave mistake that manifested by his own actions? The memory is too far in the ground, buried under broken glass and isolation. But this time will be different. This time he will not be cast aside. He is home, and he would rather die than suffer the loss of his past for a second time.
