Having named the album Samsara - after the Buddhist concept of being reborn into a never-ending cycle of suffering - the rising death metal outfit have laid their cards out on the table from the word go. Musically, the album is as abrasive as we have come to expect from this UK based five-piece; as frenetic as the debut but delivered with a power up of confidence in their delivery.
Themes and topics explored in the album's lyrics are more personal than on their debut, Animus; vocalist, Larissa Stupar, examines her own interpretation and experiences of suffering, as well as navigating broader societal concepts. It is a political thread of fury that delivers a lashing in the direction of human trafficking, capital punishment, and - as in the case of the first single, "Uterine Industrialisation" - forced surrogacy.
Recorded in Summer 2018 at Vagrant Studio, Southport, UK, Samsara was produced by Tom Dring (Dawn Ray'd, Dragged Into Sunlight) and Arthur Rizk (Code Orange, Power Trip). The work of both audio engineers highlights the dynamics and depth of the biting aggression present throughout Samsara. The resulting album is a contrasting and confrontational offer that does not hold back.
The album artwork was created by Eliran Kantor.
