Germany's KARLOFF premiere new track at "Deaf Forever" magazine's website, set release date for DYING VICTIMS debut album

On July 30th internationally,   Dying Victims Productions  will release  Karloff 's  highly anticipated debut album,   The Appearing , on CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.  And today,  Deaf Forever   magazine's website   reveals the new track  "A Violent Winter."  Hear  Karloff 's "A Violent Winter" in its entirety exclusively  HERE .

Hailing from Germany,   Karloff  formed in 2018 as a means for erstwhile Graveyard Ghoul member Tom Horrified to blow off some punk-oriented steam with a couple close comrades. Describing their sound as “raw obscure punk turns into blackness,” it didn’t take long for the band to record their first recording,   Demo ’18 , but it was the following   Raw Nights   mini-album a year later where   Karloff  kicked into high gear. Released to widespread acclaim by   Dying Victims   with the preceding demo tracks tacked on,   Raw Nights   strutted with sleazy confidence and an infectious sense of bash/crash/slash that struck deep into the heart of what makes the best of both punk and metal. But, the best was still come from   Karloff

At last, it arrives with their long-awaited debut album,   The Appearing . If   Karloff ’s previous two short-lengths presented them as a more gutter-level Midnight, then   The Appearing   recasts the band in a totally new, altogether more unique light – and one that’s still brimming with that ever-special twist of olde-worlde evil. Rich and robust and ripplingly muscular,   The Appearing   struts like a cheetah with a heart full of napalm and flexes like nobody’s business. In fact, the lead-heavy stomp here harkens to ancient-days metalpunk like Carnivore,   Best Wishes -era Cro-Mags, or even early Nasty Savage; equally, one could also point to the more modern likes of Iron Age, Shitfucker, and The Rival Mob. However, the creepiness   Karloff  hinted at earlier reaches a fever pitch across the tastefully-applied chorus FX, a subtle nod to post-punk that ably broadens the band’s reach without sacrificing their vision. More than all that, it’s the songwriting of   The Appearing   which renders it an intensely re-playable record: exciting, invigorating, and skillfully finding that balance between the seemingly epic and the swiftly concise.

Ghouls and ghosts, thugs and thieves:  Karloff  are calling upon you to witness   The Appearing !
