KRAKOW DEBUT TRACKS AND REVEAL THOMAS HOOPER ARTWORK FOR NEW ALBUM

Posted: July 1, 2012 in DARK ESSENCE RECORDS, OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASES

KRAKOW have debuted two tracks from the band’s upcoming album “diin” which is set for release on DARK ESSENCE RECORDS in September of this year.  “diin”  will be KRAKOW’s sophomore album, and a follow up to their 2009 debut “Monolith”.  The debut tracks, “Hymn to the Winds” and “Future Past” can be heard on the band’s SoundCloud page at  http://soundcloud.com/krakow_band

As well as well as having debuted the tracks, KRAKOW have also revealed the cover art for “diin”, which has been designed by one of America’s foremost tattoo artist THOMAS HOOPER.  Brooklyn-based HOOPER, who, as well as being a tattooist is also well known for his paintings and designs, has previously worked with bands such as DOOMRIDERS, TOMB, SCOTT KELLY and OLD MAN GLOOM.   According to KRAKOW guitarist and vocalist René Misje the chance to work with HOOPER is something the band relishes: “We are proud to have had such a talented and renowned artist to create the artwork for our new album. We are big admirers of his work and we were honoured when he agreed to work with us. We are eternally grateful and can only hope that our music does justice to his art”.  Information about THOMAS HOOPER and examples of his work can be found at http://meditationsinatrament.com/

Formed in 2005 by Frode Kilvik (bass, vocals), Kjartan Grønhaug (guitar) and René Misje (guitar, vocals), the band recently added KAMPFAR and MONDVOLLAND drummer Ask Ty Arctander to their line up.  With a sound that ranges from dark, evocative and mesmerizing to fast, aggressive and heavy, KRAKOW is a band that is not easily categorised, fitting as it does equally well within the post-rock, metal and stoner rock genres.  More information about KRAKOW can be found at http://www.krakowofficial.com/
