The artwork for “Crystalline” was designed by HARK guitarist/vocalist Jimbob Isaac, himself an acclaimed graphic artist who has worked with the likes of RED FANG, CLUTCH, MELVINS, KVELERTAK, and more.

“With ‘Crystalline’ we hope that you can hear a new band with an old soul”, comments mastermind Jimbob Isaac. “Nothing worthwhile is ever easy, and we hope the ‘do or die’ ethos behind this band and record connects with people on all levels. To pursue art and music, is to expand our consciousness, is to purge and is our two fingers up to those who say we can’t. Awaken, all ye algorithmic soul seekers, crystalline realization awaits you.”

“Crystalline” was recorded at Monnow Valley Studios in Wales (BLACK SABBATH, RUSH, JUDAS PRIEST, PORTISHEAD) and mixed by CONVERGE guitarist Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE, HIGH ON FIRE, KVELERTAK, YOUNG WIDOWS). The album was released last Month.
