Ontario abrasive hardcore band KARLOFF combines jazz, post rock, screamo, post punk and more influences on the upcoming debut LP

1 min read

The debut LP from Ontario’s post rock / emoive hardcore / screamo band KARLOFF has been announced for an October 8th 2021 release through No Funeral Records (CAN) , I.Corrupt.Records (GER) , LongLegsLongArms (JP) , and Zegema Beach Records (CAN/USA)

After 3 years in the making, Karloff has finished their debut LP. Pulling from influences such as Jeromes Dream, Slint, Modest Mouse, Hella, Orchid, Envy, City of Caterpillar, Daughters, Merzbow and many many more, Karloff has concocted a short 25 minutes of pure emotionally driven sound.


With a jazzy rhythm section, anxiety-ridden guitar riffs, and cathartic vocals the entire album flows together as one beautifully crafted mess. Something that needs to be heard, and not described.

The first single “Ocean or other” is a somber song that breaks down into emotional chaos. You can watch the visualizer here or check it out on any streaming platform.
