Finland’s apocalypse-anticipating post-punk outfit, BEASTMILK, will release their Climax LP, worldwide on Black Friday, November 29th. Recorded, mixed, and produced in July of 2013 at GodCity Studios by Kurt Ballou, Climax conveys a true, genuine excitement and all-consuming state of euphoric thrall in the face of the bleak, end-of-days thematic narratives. Instead of stereotypically brooding and glacially plodding through the inherent darkness cast from Kvohst’s poetic spells, the instrumentalists of BEASTMILK apply a unique, surging catchiness composed of infectious anthemic charges and unbreakable spirit from beginning to end. True to form, when the end finally comes and consumes all else, Climax stands as the enduring battle hymn for the exhilarated survivors of a cold world.
Climax will see release in North America via Magic Bullet Records and on Svart Records for Europe; both labels will unleash the album on LP, CD and digital formats.
“Apocalyptic visions and a wicked sense of humor populate audio nightmares as BEASTMILK create visceral, unsettling death rock for the elite... a jangly post-punk death wish.” - Pitchfork
“The album is endlessly, almost dizzyingly climactic — a series of soaring peaks that combine the moody, precise darkwave/post-punk of Interpol or Cold Cave with the maximalist bombast of Arcade Fire.” - Stereogum
"BEASTMILK’s guitars are alive with bits of Siouxsie and The Banshees, Misfits and Cramps, but folded within structures straight from angry Echo And The Bunnymen, Joy Division and Bauhaus. I feel like I’m sixteen, sitting in my room in the dark listening to music. At the same time it’s completely modern. What the fuck?... BEASTMILK has entered the battle for my top album of 2013 with a machete. An astonishing debut. 9/10" - Crave Online
