"Beyond Ratio" is the debut full-length album of Russian band Swampborn. Combining assertive (post) black metal with a powerful and solid, at times almost death metal sound, its music comes as a massive flow of energy, consisting of a flurry of drums, multi-layered guitar canvases, piercing melodies and expressive vocals, rusty and ominous like an apocalyptic sermon.

While at the core the band's music is based on modern black metal, it uses many unexpected infusions, embodied through the use of additional instruments, such as keyboards, synths, brass, violin and cello, and even accordion. Being a concept work, "Beyond Ratio" is full of various mood changes and unconventional moves, such as post-industrial backgrounds and atmospheric breakdowns, which don't sound like from deathcore or modern metal, but rather like parts of twisted obscure metal structures.

The visual design of this release is also conceptional, filled with metaphysical hints and allusions. Illustrations for each track reflect and deepen their themes, while the cover and inner art reveal reflections on everyday and beyond, transient and eternal, passed through the prisms of micro- and macrocosm. Enigmatic titles of songs unfold the lyrical themes of "Beyond Ratio" - existential horror, decay of urban life and metaphysical death of the soul. Endowed with all the features described above, Swampborn's music is able to penetrate into the most hidden depths of the human soul, exposing its bleeding wounds and cleansing it in the merciless flame of the Absolute.

Get yor copy:

DISADAPTIVE is a powerful old school death metal with melodic thrash-metal elements. Brutality and rush of AUTOPSY and BOLT THROWER, technical heaviness and straight of DEATH and CANCER. Sound of DISADAPTIVE is a mixing of Swedish and American styles of death metal, which is breaking down with tight guitars, impetuous temp and unexpectable composition decisions.

Sergey Naydenov: "This time we decided to take a different approach to the process of recording material. The decision was made to minimize studio operations: for the guitar and bass, reamping of a previously recorded clean signal was used. Vocals were recorded at Pentagram House Studios in April, while the instrumental portion of the album was recorded between February and March 2022. One track, "Missionaria Protectiva", was taken from the previous release, the rest of the tracks were previously unreleased. Each song has its own separate lyrical component, in general, the range of topics is quite wide: somewhere there are references to operations on the western front of the Second World War, I'm talking about “A Silent Dawn”, and somewhere we are talking about space anomalies like the Eridani Supervoid, it's about "No Light from God". There are also references to literary sources, for example, the lyric part of "Crafted Abominations" is based on a short story by Guy De Maupassant "The Mother of Freaks", some of the lyrics have references to Orwell in "The Rifle Logic".

Release will be available in 4-panel digipak format with 16-pages booklet (matte lamination, varnishing). If you are interesting in buying, please, write on the mail - Because there are no payments via PayPal over Russia, only banks
