Come forth and experience the world's "most extreme prog metal band!" Alkaloid is a juggernaut in the making, consisting of several ex-Necrophagist and Obscura members. Names like Aborted, Spawn of Possession, Blotted Science, and many more also fall under this band's pedigree. This is arguably one of the most, if not the most, exciting metal projects set to emerge this year. Their upcoming album, "The Malkuth Grimoire", is sounding awesome to say the very least.
Below you can find an excerpt from the crowdfunding campaign along with music and extras goods. Enjoy!
Alkaloid is a new band created by five good friends, who happen to be well-known musicians of the Metal genre. Our intention is to go beyond any limit that metal music sub-genres might have these days and create the world's most extreme Prog Metal band.
We define Alkaloid through the field of tension created between musical opposites. All of us are active death metal musicians who nevertheless all have a much broader view of music than blast beats and growls. We try to establish from the beginning that we have many faces, and that oscillating between (seemingly) contrary or mutually exclusive styles is an important factor.
