Karybdis to release debut album From The Depths in July, stream new song Minotaur

London based metal group Karybdis have announced that they will release their debut album ‘From The Depths’ on the 2nd July.

“We all have such different influences that we can’t be pinned down to a specific genre,” explains drummer Mitch McGugan. “The combination of all our ideas makes us unique. When we write we do it together and write what we want to hear. We never try to cater to a specific audience.”

The band are streaming the lead track from the album titled ‘Minotaur’ which you can listen to below:

“Karybdis created huge whirlpools from the depths of the ocean in order to engulf any passing sailors,” explains McGugan. “We want to exert that kind of power too. We wanted a link between the name of the band and album title, something that also represented the beginning of something new for us. The lyrics range from being about dreams and mythological creatures to notions of love, lust and grief. Rich is quite a recent addition to the band, but he really pulled out all the stops on this album, and surprised us all a few times during the recording process!”

The band teamed up with Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, The Wildhearts, Sikth, Evile) to record their new album at the Parlour Studios in Northamptonshire. “Russ was fantastic to work with,” states McGugan. “He was patient and helpful with things we found difficult and a real taskmaster when he felt we weren’t doing the best we could! We had a huge amount to cram into the time we had and he worked incredibly hard to bring our dream to fruition: an album that sounds exactly as we wanted it to.”
