Latest release: "Liquid Anatomy"

Release date: Fri, May 18 2018, US Fri, May 18 2018

ALKALOID drummer Hannes Grossmann has unleashed a brand new play-through video for the track "In Turmoil's Swirling Reaches", taken from ALKALOID's latest album 'Liquid Anatomy'.

The progressive drum extremist is streaming his play-through video at the link here.

Hannes Grossmann comments: "I'm really stoked about this play-through video. It looks and sounds really huge and professional. Making drum pay-through videos is always a big effort, especially if the song is difficult - which it is. I was handling the audio recording and mixing too, so I had two jobs at once. In that big venue the drums just sounded amazing, there's so much reverb, which is fun to work with in the mix."

"In Turmoil's Swirling Reaches" has been taken off the album ‘Liquid Anatomy’. Find the album cover and tracklist below.

Biography

Alkaloid-2999-small-christian_martin_weiss

Hissing, creeping, crawling, sending forth a multitude of sonic tentacles, swirling in dissonant chaos, and holding on to moments of sane clarity – ALKALOID take their musical references to H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos seriously on their sophomore full-length, 'Liquid Anatomy'.

Taking its name from a class of chemical compounds that are often used for pharmacological ends and sometimes even possess psychotropic capabilities, ALKALOID is defined through the field of tension created between various musical opposites. The band merges extreme metal and other genres of music into a unique progressive style that the listener might somehow find familiar but has not heard its exact like yet.

Drummer Hannes Grossmann (OBSCURA, NECROPHAGIST, BLOTTED SCIENCE) and vocalist / guitarist Morean (DARK FORTRESS, NONEUCLID) founded ALKALOID in 2013. Their expressed goal was to extend the dynamic range used in metal to its extreme limits. A full line-up came together quickly with the addition of Christian Muenzner (OBSCURA, NECROPHAGIST, SPAWN OF POSSESSION) and Danny Tunker (ABORTED, GOD DETHRONED) on guitars, and Linus Klausenitzer (OBSCURA) on bass.

This collective of friends started to work on their debut album 'The Malkuth Grimoire', which was successfully crowdfunded and self-released in March 2015. After playing shows across Europe and a special gig in Cairo, Egypt which included a video shooting for their song "Cthulhu", ALKALOID are now demonstrating insanely rapid musical progression with their second album.

'Liquid Anatomy' combines the maturity to be expected from veterans in the field of extreme metal with the fresh approach of a band eager to explore new paths.
