Convulse to release Deathstar

2020-06-17 by Fernando Alves STAFF | 9 Comments
Finnish death metal pioneers Convulse have signed a deal with Transcending Records for the release of Deathstar, the band's fifth full-length album. It features nine tracks and is scheduled to be released on October 30th, via Transcending Records. Deathstar was recorded and mixed in analog at JJ-studio. Artwork was created by Jan Yrlund, based on the painting Strangled by Minna Mead.

Stream the video for the album's third track 'The Summoning' below.



The music video features a behind the scenes look at the making of the album.

ClawHammer PR states: "Deathstar features nine tracks that transcend the boundaries of standard death metal. Of course, this is nothing new for the trio, as many fans will fondly reflect on their unheralded gem Reflections (released in 1994 on Relapse Records) which at the time was about as unusual a death metal album as they come. Deathstar takes the same genre bending approach as Reflections and modernizes it."

Deathstar tracklist:

1. Extreme Dark Light
2. Whirlwind
3. The Summoning
4. Chernobyl
5. We Sold Our Soul for Rock'n Roll
6. Deathstar
7. Make Humanica Great Again
8. Light My Day
9. The End

Honestly have no idea what to think of this first listen. Don't remember much about Reflections either aside from the fact that I was shocked it sounded like a different band. Will give the album a shot. Hoping there's at least one or two more straightforward cuts on album though

I didn't even know these guys did anything after World Without God lol

Music was good, but this would work much better as an old Katatonia song or something of that nature

I like it quite a bit. It's a step up from their previous album, as you still get a hodgepodge of influences but with better execution. Made me go back and check when the last genuinely inspiring/original death n roll album came out as groundwork for an eventual review of this, and it might well be a decade ago with Conan's First Date. Damn.
