Alkaloid is a band that is defined through the field of tension created between musical opposites. Alkaloid merge extreme metal and other more diverse genres of music into a unique style that people will somehow find familiar, but haven’t heard yet.
All musicians in the band are known and active death metal players who all have a much broader view of music than just blastbeats and growls. Alkaloid want to establish from the beginning that they have many faces, and oscillating between (seemingly) contrary or mutually exclusive styles is a factor. To use playing technique only to write good songs, is another factor.
The band funded their debut album “The Malkuth Grimoire” with a crowdfunding campaign that turned out to be a huge success.
The release date is March 17th, 2015. You can preorder the album in the Alkaloid webshop.
