A self-described “deathgaze” group, Kardashev is for fans of The Contortionist, Rivers of Nihil, Devin Townsend, Alcest – among others. Their mission statement could be described as: “Attempting to create the most beautiful, heavy music through themes of love, loss and altruism in the metal spectrum.” Much of the band’s lyrical content – found on their numerous EPs, singles, plus debut album (2015’s Peripety) – is written about science, space and the human condition.
Kardashev is currently hard at work writing their sophomore album – and Metal Blade Records debut – set to be released in 2022. Stay tuned for more Kardashev news coming soon!
