Today, Los Angeles-based psychedelic metal unit DEATHCHANT drops the kaleidoscopic wares of their self-titled debut full-length upon the masses. Captured live over a two-day period at a secluded cabin in Big Bear, California, and manifests an immersive wall of noise-induced heavy metal mania that is equal parts paranoia and transcendental harmony.

DEATHCHANT is the brainchild of TJ Lemieux (Child, Psychedelic Speed Freaks, Mainline Ladies, Babylon) with John Bolino, Colin Fahrner, and George Camacho. They’ve been dubbed psychedelic rock, proto-metal, doom, stoner metal, noise-punk, hard rock, and everything in between, but if you ask them, DEATHCHANT is just, “rock and roll with psychedelic influences.” Fluctuating between peaceful, meditative, eastern-tinged messages of unity and all out warcrys with an underlying lesson of love and peace-through-violence, the band is driven by Lemieux’s brooding aesthetic and signature psychedelic guitar atmospherics. DEATHCHANT echoes through the darker side of proto-metal and hard rock creating a sound that is loud, massive, and about as melodic as a sonic assault of this magnitude can be. They resonate with wherever or whoever you are and deliver an excitingly raw and catchy brand of unforgetting rock and roll. The band’s debut was written by Lemieux, mixed by Lemieux and Stephen Schroeder and engineered and mastered by Schroeder.
