Album Review

Samskaras- Lithification


Samskaras is releasing a serious banger this Friday October 26th.  My favorite day of the week is Tuesday, because my homeboy Austin Weber drops a nasty reference for your favorite tech and prog death metal bands.  Today, he is streaming the Samskaras upcoming release right here!  The Montreal duo really, really outdid themselves on this album.

1. Reconciliation
2. As Warriors
3. Alignment
4. À Deux Mains

Eric Burnet – Vocals, Guitar, Bass (Unburnt, Derelict)
Alexandre Dupras – Drums (Teramobil, Unhuman)

Samskaras bring great virtuosity and groove to the table on “Lithification”.  The 4 song effort makes you hungry for more from this project, highly anticipating more music sooner than later.  Eric Burnet’s voice really brings this great project to the forefront.  Canada is a huge hotbed for different technical and progressive death metal bands right now, and you’re gonna have to add another great band in Samskaras to that overflowing list of greatness.

This heavily emotional EP can not go unnoticed.  The guys really put forth an honest effort into “Lithification” and deserves lots of recognition for this great release.  Eric Burnet further explained their upcoming EP:

“This EP is mostly about the struggle between anger and self-control. “It’s direct and vicious, but also intensely emotional. The title itself is the geological process by which rock is created through heat and pressure. The question I’m pondering is, how hard do our life experiences make us, and when does that stop being a healthy way to cope?”
