TRACK PREMIERE: Progressive sludgers Astrakhan unleash "A Change Begins"

Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, progressive sludge band Astrakhan are set to release their sophomore album this month, entitled "Without New Growth Process is Bloodshed" the album’s theme according to the band is the idea that, from birth, a child is told what is right and wrong, what is good and bad, based on the opinions of the narrow minded individuals who influence them through their upbringing. This inevitably leads a curious mind to question why things are as they are. This preparational approach to education teaches children to grow up and be like an adult as soon as possible. There is little time to bask in the serene innocence of ignorance.

“Without New Growth Process is Bloodshed” comes two years after their highly praised debut album “Reward in Purpose” and is further evidence of the bands continued growth as a band, channelling a number of different sounds and genres throwing them into a melting pot, with the resultant brew being one of originality and a record executed with flair  and little something extra, making the album a compulsive listen.  Today ahead of the record’s official release you can check out the track “A Change Begins” below
