Serration has released their much-anticipated album ‘Simulations Of Hell,’ available today through DAZE. The album is a rollercoaster of punishing riffs, fervent screams, and introspective themes, drawing inspiration from early metalcore bands like 7 Angels 7 Plagues and Misery Signals, as well as Y2K era horror video games.
The album has garnered critical acclaim for its balance between the chaotic nature of early 2000s metalcore and the new wave of hardcore styles. Songs like the opener, “Boreal Serpent,” set an aggressive tone that carries through the album, which has been described as “a violently frantic form of metalcore” by Stereogum and “a wickedly heavy slice of metalcore” by Revolver Magazine.
‘Simulations Of Hell’ explores a range of topics, from the perils of materialism to the torment of guilt. The band seamlessly blends heavy riffs and screaming vocals with more melodic interludes, offering a comprehensive and intense listening experience.
The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Jordan Chase at Oodelally Recordings in Kelowna, BC.
