BASALT - Inked A Deal With Ritual Productions

Brazilian doom/black/dark metallers Basalt have signed a record deal with Ritual Productions. The band will enter the studio this month to record their first rite for the label. Formed in 2015, in the riff metropolis of São Paulo, Brazil, Basalt unify elements of doom, black metal and dark experimental tones, subverting musical archetypes and creating new extreme audio terrains. Harkening to the dense low-end, cavernous and intense depths of the heavy sonic, Basalt fuse this fury with extraordinary ambient and atmospheric scope, incorporating a unique channelling of influences and sounds. Melding rawness and discordance with progressive and expansive breadth, Basalt truly wield aural transgression and transformation.
The quintet is formed of current and previous members of bands including Surra, Constrito, O Cúmplice, Meant To Suffer, Bomb Threat and Magzilla. Basalt's debut album, O Coração Negro da Terra ("Black Heart Of The Earth") had a small domestic DIY CD pressing in 2017, which Ritual Productions will be re-releasing in 2019. You can check out Basalt's dark sonic abyss by watching the official video for the track "Aurora" - taken from the aforementioned debut - below.
The band has been no stranger to live rituals in their home country. Shortly after their formation, Basalt played the Test stage at Virada Cultural 2016 - São Paulo's biggest music event. Alongside gigs across Brazil, Basalt performed on the closing night at this year's renowned Centro do Rock Festival which showcases the finest talent amongst Brazilian arts. October 2018 will see the band supporting the mighty Eyehategod in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Basalt's first rite for Ritual Productions will be released in 2019 with more details to follow shortly. Stay tuned for updates! Link
