The Great Escape - Music & More

Experimental metal trio Locrian are a prophetic voice of decline and a pioneering force in the world of metal. Their sonic tapestry weaves elements of black metal, ambient, and experimental music, creating a genre-defying experience that pushes the boundaries of conventional metal norms. Their new album End Terrain is the proper follow-up to 2015's Infinite Dissolution (Relapse Records) and continues in the vein of their distinguishable sonic blueprint brought forth from said release along with other Relapse Records-released Return To Annihilation and The Clearing/The Final Epoch. 2022 saw their return with their Profound Lore debut New Catastrophism, in which the trio explored and returned back to the experimental side of their roots. End Terrain is the group's most direct and concise work to date. More complex and layered than anything in the prolific trio's catalog, it is a concept album exposing a vision of a future earth consumed by waste. It depicts an apocalyptic landscape, inhabited by a generation who despise their parentage and are a dying breed fully aware of the wasteland they have left. With mountains of trash and an uninhabitable planet, endless and dead, End Terrain is about inertia and regret, about the future and a mirror to the present, about mourning and extinction.A seamless and harrowing blend of experimental, post-rock, and post-metal, Locrian's End Terrain is the perfect manifestation of modern, forward-thinking experimental music pushed to a maximalist conclusion."Plenty of bands play music that sounds dark, but few can make every note bleed black and breathe smoke. Count Locrian as part of that select circle." -Marc Masters, Pitchfork
