Tempe, Arizona-based deathgaze outfit KARDASHEV will release their stunning sophomore full-length, Liminal Rite, on June 10 via Metal Blade Records, today unveiling the record’s first single and pre-orders.
Forged in 2012, KARDASHEV’s mission statement could best be described as, “Attempting to create the most beautiful, heavy music through themes of love, loss, and altruism in the metal spectrum.”
The band dropped their debut full-length Peripety in 2015 and has since focused on short form concept records, most recently 2021’s stirring The Baring Of Shadows. Rarely approaching the creation of a record with any preconceptions or plans as to what form it will take, they work until what they generally envisaged manifests itself.
The result is this year’s Liminal Rite featuring eleven deeply rousing, poignant, and musically grandiose tracks.
