KROH have announced a brand new album!
The new album, titled Pyres, follows the release of the band’s debut album Altars and a performance at last weekend’s Bloodstock Festival, the rising doom metallers have announced that they will release their new album in October this year! Speaking about the album, vocalist Oliwia Sobieszek says, “it was an honest and cathartic process. In the past few months I repeatedly asked myself the following question: how can one use profound suffering as a catalyst for growth, instead of allowing the daily struggle to drain one’s vitality? I didn’t find any satisfactory answers, so I wrote lyrics about it instead. The lyrics are a medley of thoughts and reflections regarding various types of pain. I used themes of mental agony, the existential angst and the inevitability of death to explore the manner in which suffering can shape the human experience. Nemertean Girl talks about duplicity, and is a reminder that hiding inner malevolence will inevitably lead to the perpetrator’s own demise. I wanted the vocal melodies to be unpredictable; sweet and alluring like a siren’s chant at first, but piercing and dominating as the songs unfold. It was never really my priority to make people feel good when listening to the tracks. Instead I would rather the listener to feel intrigued, inspired, or even uncomfortable.”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, you can view both the track list and artwork for the upcoming album. Both of which are available to view below:
1 Triumph of Death
2 Rigor Mortis

Pyres is set for release on October 13th via Devizes Records.
