Loch Vostok upcoming album details and lyric video premiere

Loch Vostok upcoming album was entitled as “Strife” and set for release on November 24th via Vicisolum Records.

“Strife” is the 7th release by the Swedish extreme progressive metal quintet Loch Vostok. The new album is told to deal with loss on every imaginable level, the loss of life, love, monetary assets, friends and so on, but also the rebuild afterwards.

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!

Remember previously mentioned Teddy Möller ‘s words about “Strife”:

“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.”
