PUSHING THE SENSORY BOUNDARIES BY CREATING A TRIPLE ALBUM THAT CLOCKS IN AT OVER AN HOUR – BLACK METALLERS SCHAMMASCH KNOW HOW TO PUSH THE RIGHT BUTTONS

Early on in our conversation, when discussing how brave it is to release a 1h40m long triple album in the age of zero attention span, Schammasch vocalist/guitarist/mastermind Chris S.R. lets the following statement loose: “There will be many who won’t even try to understand it, which is fine. They should stay away.” It sounds arroga nt in writing, but it didn’t sound like it was meant that way at all – this is simply a case of an artist unwilling to compromise or diminish his vision for the sake of accessibility or pandering to any kind of lowest common denominator. Yeah, ‘Triangle’, the Swiss quartet’s third album in six years, is a lengthy, opaque affair, a slow and deliberate plunge into a tenebrous kind of darkness that many won’t be able to take. So instead of complaining that all the lights are out, just don’t go into the dark room. That’s all. Besides, the previous records were already part of a crescendo and were warning enough that it would come to this.

About Terrorizer Magazine

This month’s cover stars are 25 years old this year and have just released their tenth album, so for Katatonia it’s a double whammy. But with age comes clarity and knowledge and as you’ll have heard for yourselves, the band’s new release ‘The Fall Of Hearts’ is such a brilliant piece of melancholic metal. Perhaps not the most obvious of coverstars, it’s safe to say that Katatonia deserve the honour through consistently delivering awesome albums and going the distance when others have fallen by the wayside. I know you’ll enjoy José’s story as much as I did reading it for the first time. This issue is packed, as always, with a cross-section of brutality and extremity and was brought to you as certain staff members recover from two of the best festivals in the calendar – namely Roadburn and Ritual Festival. You can read about both in this ‘ere issue too.
