Chicago rock trio Snow Burial signs with Prosthetic Records and announces their second full-length studio album to be released this September.
The nine-track album is titled Ostrava and maps where life’s beauty and terror collide.
Born from their defining experiences at home and on the road, the unifying theme of Ostrava is one of duality. The precarious balance of their lives is laid out across the nine tracks in Ostrava. The complexities of modern life and politics weigh heavily and color the narrative of the album. The result is a collection of songs with equal parts grief and gratitude bundled up into digestible chunks of post-metal fury.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Radiohead as much as any metal act; Snow Burial craft polished songs with the whirring machinery hidden just below the surface. Their blend of melody and aggression delivers a sound that dredges the depths of doom and sludge and marries it with rock ‘n’ roll sensibilities.
The album artwork was created by Menerva Tau, a mixed media artist and photographer from Turkey, whose haunting work echoes the sentiment behind Ostrava.
Ostrava will be released by Prosthetic Records on September 20.
