Sweden’s sovereign avantgarde/melo-death act Loch Vostok have announced the worldwide release date of their seventh album “Strife”, through Vicisolum Records.
The release date was set for November 24th, but don’t despair before that on September 29th they will released the 1st single entitled “Summer”! An excellent 4 minute tracker, which makes Mike Patton almost seem normal, but which also brings the natural Loch Vostok trademark sound into the listener’s ear.
“Strife” deals with loss on every imaginable level, the loss of life, love, monetary assets, friends and so on, but also the rebuild afterwards.
Leadsinger/guitarist, Teddy Möller comments:
“Expect the unexpected. Djent, modern progressive, dark, gloomy, groovy, doom, black metal, pop and ridiculously heavy. Huge production. In your face/wall of sound. Songwriting in it’s most unpure form, still as catchy as the plague and as beautiful as summer rain.”
The album was recorded at Frontporch Productions, mixed by David Castillo (Katatonia, Dark Tranquility, Sepultura) and mastered by Jens Bogren, both doing a splendid job with the awesome material, in Fascination Street!

Teddy Möller (Guitar/Vocals)
