Samskaras Releases Debut Single "Consecrate"

Montreal progressive death metallers Samskaras just released their debut single, "Consecrate," along with a multi-instrument play through video shot at Chris Donaldson's (Cryptopsy) studio, The Grid. Check it out below.

Samskaras is the new metal project founded by Montreal-based musician Eric Burnet (Derelict). With songs written from an exploratory perspective, influences as far-flung as Gorguts, The Ocean, Enslaved, Wood Of Ypres, The Faceless, Gojira and more are mixed into inventive combinations. Burnet is joined by drummer Alexandre Dupras, known for his work with (the)Plasmarifle, Unhuman, and Teramobil.

“With Samskaras I just want to let the seed of each idea grow into what it may,” explains Burnet. “It'll remain extreme music, but I'm more interested in reflecting my inner state and telling stories than I am in fitting into one genre or another. I approached Alexandre to do the drums because his organic style fits really well with how I write for this project.”

"Consecrate" will be followed in two weeks by a second single called "Red Hill." The songs are available as pay-what-you-want downloads at Bandcamp.
