The DK based progressive doom quartet ALKYMIST is now releasing a new live music video for the 10 minutes long track ‘Paradise’ from their self titled debut album. The clip was filmed at their release show on Loppen, Christiania in Copenhagen this past October, where a packed venue witnessed the band perform the album from beginning to end, including ‘Paradise’. The video is created by Tatanka and Snake Charmer, the sound is recorded and mixed by the band itself, while the band’s producer Lasse Ballade (also known for his work with Slægt, Solbrud and Halshug) has overseen the mastering.

Copenhagen, Denmark based ALKYMIST is a new force in doom metal – a force which, in its own manner, seeks to bring the hope of change into a time of turmoil. The band was formed in 2016 and released their debut EP in January 2018 to notable national buzz. The band’s debut album consists of six grandiose metal compositions over 44 minutes produced by Lasse Ballade (Solbrud, Orm, Slægt). The music on ALKYMIST’s debut album can be defined as progressive doom metal being both crushingly heavy as well as melodic and dynamic conjuring up a simultaneously strange, beautiful and terrifying expression. A general theme on ‘Alkymist’ is an existence which is parallel, wrong and expelled – and an existence from which the suffering subject seeks to be delivered.
‘Alkymist’ was released on October 5th via Indisciplinarian on LP and digital formats, and it can be heard and bought HERE
