Progressive Death Metallers KALLIAS Premieres New Song + Music Video!

Progressive death metal rising stars Kallias will be digitally releasing its brand new album 'First Ascent' on August 25, 2023 via AISA Distribution! In celebration, the band has partnered with Knotfest to premiere the first single from the record, "Lungta II: Everlasting," along with a haunting music video. The clip can be found at THIS LOCATION.

Kallias guitarist and vocalist Nicole Papastavrou comments, “We’re thrilled to showcase our more progressive elements in this new single, such as the use of Chris’ upright bass and a very special throat singing section by Alex Novick. Overall, 'Lungta II: Everlasting' is not only a departure from ‘First Ascent,’ but takes a direction we hope to accomplish with the next record.

"The music video resembles the physical and mental journey of climbing in the Himalayas. ‘Lungta,’ meaning ‘Wind Horse,’ resemble the prayer flags that bring goodwill, with red specifically resembling fire. We best used our imagination to bring to life the inward battle one must face when taking such journeys. We hope you enjoy the visuals and look forward to the release of ‘First Ascent’ to follow.”

In addition, Kallias will be embarking on a run of West Coast tour dates this August in support of Cyborg Octopus! The trek will kick off on August 25 in Fullerton, CA and will conclude on August 30 in Fresno, CA. The full itinerary can be found below!

'First Ascent' can be pre-saved on all streaming services HERE.
