Tiny Deaths, the third album from these Avant-garde Russian experimentalists will also be released on the 19th May.
It's a daring album, one borne of contempt for convention and nurtured with a genuine sense of originality. Rakoth take you into their own mesmerizing, mind-expanding world with this release. They're a band totally committed to pushing back the boundaries of art.
Guaranteed to divide fans and critics alike, Tiny Deaths proves one thing: Rakoth follow their own path exclusively, regardless of trends.
The album "Planeshift" out soon. The re-issue of this masterpiece will be in the shops complete with brand-new digipac artwork and a full re-mastering job courtesy of Tim Turan at Turan Audio (Opeth / Emperor, etc). In other Rakoth news, the band enters the studio in June to record their brand new album, tentatively entitled "Tiny Deaths". The band promises an overall progression in sound and quality, but will remain steadfast to the Rakoth ethic. Expect only the finest from this incredible band.
Russian metallers Rakoth are currently recording their first album for England's Elitist Records.
"The only thing I can say is that it's definitely less "fantasy" or "medieval" sounding than the previous albums," revealed Rakoth mainman Rustam. "Personally, I thought that it's absolutely different from what we did before but when I just let some various (independent) people listen to those unfinished pieces they all said, "pure Rakoth!" Maybe it is the same "epic" and pompous vein... I think new material is more like Planeshift than Jabberworks. Though, of course, it differs a lot from both."
Elitist currently has Rakoth's as-yet-untitled new album scheduled for a summer 2002 release. We'll have more on Rakoth as it happens.
