Newly formed metal band Khôrada, featuring ex-members of Agalloch and Giant Squid, will release their highly-anticipated debut full-length album "Salt" on July 20th via Prophecy Productions. Pre-order the album now at this location.
Today, the band has premiered a new song called “Glacial Gold,” which can be streamed now over at NPR at this location, or just in the player provided above.
“'Glacial Gold' is a turning-point song on 'Salt,' sorrowfully reflecting on what came before it, while looking for the means to move forward; a metaphor possibly for my own life, or even that of this band and what it represents for all of us involved in it. The song features heartbreaking cello from my wife, Jackie Perez Gratz (Giant Squid, Grayceon, Amber Asylum)," commented Khôrada vocalist Aaron Gregory.
Khôrada is a completely fresh concept and opportunity for the musicians to explore new soundscapes while creatively challenging themselves. With "Salt,: Khôrada forges breathtaking swathes of sounds that swell, stretch, submerge and recede with panoramic power.
