German/Dutch progressive extreme metal band Alkaloid just released a new video for the track “Cthulhu,” taken off the band’s self-released debut “The Malkuth Grimoire,” which earned the runner-up spot for “best metal newcomer of 2015” in our year-end awards.
Alkaloid also just signed with Season Of Mist and is now writing a second record due to drop in late 2017. The band features Hannes Grossman (ex-Obscura, Blotted Science) on drums, Christian Munzner (ex-Obscura, ex-Necrophagist) on guitar, Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura, Noneuclid) on bass, Danny Tunker (ex-Aborted) on guitar, and Morean (Dark Fortress) on vocals and guitar.
In Alkaloid’s own words, the band is defined “through the field of tension created between musical opposites. Alkaloid merge extreme metal and other more diverse genres of music into a unique style that people will somehow find familiar, but haven‘t heard yet.”
