Portugese progressive sludge / black metal band GAEREA have just unveiled their official video for the impressive song “Catharsis“.
The track hails from the band’s upcoming full-length album for Transcending Obscurity Records, “Unsettling Whispers“, which will arrive June 22nd. The album will be available in a variety of formats including a gatefold LP, alternate artwork box set and 8-panel digipak with a 20-page booklet.
As “Catharsis” reveals, GAEREA are turning black metal on its head with their fusing atmospheric, progressive elements into their sound. At times the sonics are quite sludgy, others are rife with post-hardcore and outersound nuances.
GAEREA have some upcoming live appearances that include:
26.05 – Lisbon, Portugal @ RCA Club w/ Inverno Eterno & Black Howling [INFO]
22.06 – Porto, Portugal @ Metalpoint w/ TBA [INFO]
