The newly-formed metal band, Khôrada (Khorada), featuring ex-members of Agalloch and Giant Squid, will release their highly-anticipated debut, full-length album, SALT, on July 20th from Prophecy Productions.
“Glacial Gold is a turning-point song on SALT, sorrowfully reflecting on what came before it, while looking for the means to move forward; a metaphor possibly for my own life, or even that of this band and what it represents for all of us involved in it. The song features heartbreaking cello from my wife, Jackie Perez Gratz (Giant Squid, Grayceon, Amber Asylum).” – Aaron Gregory
Featuring former Agalloch members Don Anderson (guitar), Jason Walton (bass), and Aesop Dekker (drums), alongside ex-Giant Squid guitarist/vocalist Aaron John Gregory, Khorada is a completely fresh concept and opportunity for the musicians to explore new soundscapes while creatively challenging themselves. With SALT, the band forges breathtaking swathes of sounds that swell, stretch, submerge and recede with panoramic power.
