News: Locrian Announce New LP, ‘End Terrain’ Through Profound Lore

Experimental metal trio Locrian proudly announce their new LP End Terrain, which will be released through Profound Lore Records on April 5. End Terrain is a concept album, which tells the story of a future where the earth is consumed by waste. The album is all about the piles of trash we produce, the unlivable planet that we create, the apocalyptic future, and the mirror image of how the present will turn into a disastrous fate. The album was recorded and mixed by J. Robbins at Magpie Cage and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.

The band have also released the first single off of the album, “Chronoscapes.”

Band member Terence Hannum shares his thoughts:

“Creating End Terrain was actually over seven years in the making, from the end of Infinite Dissolution many of these tracks bagen as riffs and ideas we saved and built on. Obviously covid got in the way when we wanted to record, so we all mused over the ideas and after we made New Catastrophism we set to create the maximalist answer to that album’s minimalist presence. End Terrain was furthered by our desire to try things we haven’t done before from different vocals, hypnotic riffs, incorporating drum machines and live drums with walls of noise and melody alongside our overt love for metal – we just wanted every space to be filled not only with sounds but ideas. Finally, the thematic elements arose from this claustrophobic sound and my being a parent, inverting the relationship to think of what my children and subsequent generations will think of the world we leave behind full of plastic, waste and garbage from the seas to low orbit out in space.”
