Deluxe box includes double vinyl LP in gatefold sleeve, deluxe two CD set in hardback book, 7" single, art prints and signed/numbered certificate. 2018 release. Rising from the ashes of Agalloch and Giant Squid, a new group is born: KhÙrada. Featuring former Agalloch members Don Anderson (guitar), Jason Walton (bass) and Aesop Dekker (drums) alongside ex-Giant Squid guitarist / vocalist Aaron John Gregory, KhÙrada creates colossal, textured, and emotionally powerful music. As a completely fresh concept, KhÙrada is an opportunity for the musicians to explore new soundscapes while challenging themselves creatively. With their debut album Salt, KhÙrada forges breathtaking swathes of sound that swell, stretch, submerge and recede with panoramic power. At once atmospheric, aggressive and apocalyptic, the album's emotion is driven by the band members' view of today's world; these are precarious times. Salt was written under the pressure and uncertainty of the beginning of the Trump-era, standing as a musical exploration of the routine madness we now live. Paired with the surreally visceral artwork of internationally renowned painter & sculptor Cedric Wentworth, the visual explorations prove to be as haunting as the ethereal vocals of Aaron himself.
