In celebration of its final detonation, today Revolver Magazine is streaming Totalitarian Dystopia, the new full-length from London death bringers, ACRANIA, in its venomous entirety!
Dubbed a “festering slab of disgusting death metal,” by American Aftermath, Totalitarian Dystopia was recorded with Stu McKay at Studio 6 in London with mixing/mastering by Chris Foster. The record includes guest appearances from Tom Barber of Lorna Shore, Mendel of Aborted and Jamie Hanks of I Declare War and boasts a thirty-six minute maelstrom of sonic punishment through ten deviant tales dissecting chaos, corruption and the imminent collapse of mankind. Elaborates New Transcendence in a 9.25/10 rating, “Totalitarian Dystopia is chaos incarnate–from the first crack of the snare to the last crushing chug… If you haven’t been exposed to ACRANIA‘s gargantuan style of slamming, prolapse-inducing deathcore, now is the time. Totalitarian Dystopia is nothing short of mammoth-sized riffs, steamrolling percussion and vocal brilliance… when the world’s end begins and government as we know it faces complete collapse, this is the album that will be blaring over loudspeakers in every city.” Adds Wonderbox Metal, “A hugely enjoyable release that’s more than the sum of its colossal riffs; this is an album that takes the deathcore template and makes it their own. Highly recommended for all fans of sonic heaviness and utter brutality.”
Bleed your ears dry to the sounds of Totalitarian Dystopia, now playing at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.
Named after a rare congenital disorder that occurs in the human fetus in which the flat bones in the cranial vault are either partially or completely absent, the politically-bent ACRANIA has spread their message through several independent recordings since their 2012 inception. Their debut split with Blue Waffle and “A Trophy Of Corporate Disfigurement” single, both released in their first year as a band, followed by their The Beginning Of The End EP released last year have helped the band forge a devout fanbase of pit-seeking followers. Having already toured with various acts throughout Europe including Cerebral Bore and Warpath, with upcoming shows booked alongside Thy Art Is Murder, Blood Red Throne and many more, ACRANIA will continue to scoff their way through the scene and proliferate their message of maximized hostility through their blistering fusion of brutality, slams and blastbeats.
