ALKYMIST – New video “Ghost”, album in November
The video premiered on Decibel Magazine.
“Ghost” is the maiden single from progressive doom metal quartet ALKYMIST and their forthcoming eponymous debut LP. Their record label, Indisciplinarian, prepares for the album’s release on October 5th.
Copenhagen, Denmark based ALKYMIST is a new force in doom metal – a force which, in its own manner, seeks to bring the hope of change into a time of turmoil. The band was formed in 2016 and released their debut EP in January 2018 to notable national buzz. The band’s debut album consists of six grandiose metal compositions over 44 minutes produced by Lasse Ballade (Solbrud, Orm, Slægt). The music on ALKYMIST’s debut album can be defined as progressive doom metal being both crushingly heavy as well as melodic and dynamic conjuring up a simultaneously strange, beautiful and terrifying expression. A general theme on Alkymist is an existence which is parallel, wrong and expelled, and an existence from which the suffering subject seeks to be delivered.
The wonderfully strange music video for “Ghost” was created by director Roelof Witmans. With their debut of the clip alongside ALKYMIST’s melodic take on flattening, Neurosis-esque sludge is a stunning video that combines a number of dark, abstract visuals and nature landscapes. Combined with the massive sound of ‘Ghost,’ the song takes on a new life.”
