The French production duo known as Katharsys emerge from self-imposed exile with their second album, Metallicity, ready to be unleashed upon the masses. Forming in 2001, the duos shared love of the dark and aggressive sounds of Tech Itch and Konflict soon found an outlet in their own productions that would surface on imprints like Barcode, Obscene, Future Sickness, and Guerilla. Fast-forward to the future and the heavyweight Othercide Records is hosting their sophomore long-player that’s already been causing a stir behind the scenes for its unapologetic take on the dark side of the genre.
Bits like “Dirty Like a French Man” and “Magnitude” are headed to your inbox first as the crew pave the way with an album sampler sure to have the hardcore heads strapped and ready to rage. Both are equally brutal, unforgiving slabs of bass that merges the extra-terrestrial with the filthy distortion of a world on the verge of sliding into the apocalypse.
Check the chest-thumping beats below, and if you’re feeling like letting out the inner beast be sure to lock in your pre-order for the sampler here and prepare for the Katharsys takeover.
