Finnish export Beastmilk might have a ridiculous name, but they’ve also got an interesting lineage. Vocalist Kvohst has played in black metal bands Code and Dodheimsgard, as well as folk band Hexvessel. Their four song EP perked up Converge’s ears, and the band’s Kurt Ballou recorded the band’s debut full length, Climax. A lyric video for the album’s opener, “Death Reflects Us,” premiered yesterday on Noisey, and it’s a damn catchy song. Definitely more in the postpunk Killing Joke/Bauhaus vein than a metal one, it’s compelling regardless.
Climax will be out on November 29 on Magic Bullet records.
