New album "Puritan Masochism" out on January 24th!
The four Danish women of Konvent may conjure up a deserved revival for the whole death doom genre when they release their hotly anticipated album, Puritan Masochism, on January 24th 2020 via Napalm Records. Formed in 2015, the Copenhagen collective stoically trudges through the blackest mires – guttural vocals and tenacious riffing combined with menacingly heavy production make Puritan Masochism an irresistible highlight of early 2020!
Following their 2017 demo and highly acclaimed appearances at festivals such as Aalborg Metal Festival, Metal Magic Festival and Copenhell Freezes Over in 2018, Konvent not only inked a worldwide deal with powerhouse label Napalm Records, but their mesmerizing mix of death and doom also led them to the big Danish stages, allowing them to perform at Copenhell and Roskilde Festival.
While rapidly stepping out as one of Europe's best kept death and doom metal secrets, January 2020 will finally see Konvent release their first full-length, Puritan Masochism, which was recorded live in Lasse Ballade’s studio in Copenhagen over a period of two weeks. “During the process of the songwriting, we were inspired musically by both death, black and doom metal, as we aimed to give this album a broader sound than our demo back in 2017.” the band recently stated. “The lyrics are inspired by the fight of regaining control when surrounded by chaos of different forms, which everyone may be affected by at some point in your life.”
