3 months after the release of their amazing split with FLESH BORN on I.CORRUPT.RECORDS and Skeletal Lightning and just a couple of days before their European trek with UK screamo band KOMAROV, Richmond based monumental, post-metal tinged screamo act OSTRACA is back wiith a full stream of their new record “last”, proving the band to be able to make their sound bigger and keep it bitter, abrasive, and fragile at the same time. The record is available on both tape and vinyl formats and can be grabbed at this location. OSTRACA made it their most developed and accomplished offering yet and it’s a must listen before their European tour. Dive into the record below and GO HERE to see where to catch them live.
Last is the second full-length album by US heavy screamo act Ostraca and it contains all elements fans of said genre need: From high-pitched and desperate screams, melodic as well as spazzy guitar riffs, fast and forward pushing drums to intense and quiet moments to take a breath and get lost in the sound. Those six songs are the perfect tunes for all screamo lovers and fans of City Of Caterpillar, Orchid and (older) Loma Prieta.
Ostraca is the next phase of a band that was once known as Kilgore Trout. Richmond’s bleak screamo phenom Ostraca creates a maddening scene of gloom and doom as dynamic and heavy as human ears can handle.
