Kardashev Frontman Discusses Work On New Album

Variety is the spice of life, or so they say. The same is true of music. While it can be beneficial or even gratifying to have bands who play straight forward thrash metal, for example, it's just as fun to have artists who mix up their styles a bit and incorporate other sounds and influences. So it is with Tempe, Arizona's Kardashev, a quartet which on the surface draws from death metal, deathcore and progressive music to forge their own voice.

Kardashev began life in 2012 and released a demo, "Progression" that same year, followed by their first EP, "Excipio" in 2013. Their first and to date only full length album, "Peripety" would follow two years after and since the band has continued to soldier on, releasing two more EPs, the most recent being "The Baring Of Shadows" in 2020 and signing with Metal Blade Records.

To find out more about the band, progress on their sophomore album, the meaning behind their name and much more. You can watch the interview in full below. More...

King Diamond To Release Graphic Novel

Z2 Comics, the leading publisher of music-inspired graphic novels, reveals this fall's jewel in the crown of the "king" of heavy metal himself: the first-ever comic written by the one and only King Diamond. White Noise Studios scribe Dan Watters and October Faction artist Damien Worm team with The King himself for a chilling new version of the story of Miriam Natias and Jonathan LaFey and an inheritance far more terrifying than even the haunted mansion in which it's discovered.

To celebrate this unprecedented pairing, Z2 Comics will offer an exclusive brand new Abigail graphic novel picture disc edition of this incredible album, featuring the front cover of the graphic novel, and on the back side, you will find both the original Abigail cover and an alternate cover painting by artist Torbjörn Jörgensen, available only with the deluxe and super deluxe graphic novel package, exclusively through the Z2 website, and available for pre-order now: https://z2comics.com/kingdiamond

"A graphic novel based on one of my stories is a dream come true for me. Working with a company like Z2 and the writer Dan Watters, and the graphic artist Damien Worm, is making this project the highest class one could wish for. Not just our own fans, but any fan of the horror genre, will enjoy the darkness and creepiness of this project. I simply can't wait to personally be able to present this to you once we get closer to Halloween. Abigail has risen again."

The haunting saga of King Diamond's Abigail brought to stunning and horrific life by Dan Watters, Damien Worm, and King Diamond himself! Adapting the storyline of one of heavy metal's most celebrated concept albums, this new graphic novel will reward both longtime fans and horror hounds alike with a story made even more chilling in comic book form!
