Parasight - S/T LP
Title: At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb
Format: LP (black vinyl)
Label: Indisciplinarian Records
Genre: D-Beat / Metal / Hardcore / Crust
The second LP by Copenhagen, Denmark-based metallic hardcore/crust outfit PARASIGHT, At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb, released through a cooperation between Indisciplinarian and bassist KB Larsen’s Modstand Records imprint. The members of PARASIGHT had been playing together in different metal and hardcore bands when they assembled themselves as a new band in 2009 due to their common love of Swedish punk, D-beat and bands like Motorhead and Discharge. To date they have released one full-length, one 7” EP, and a split 12” EP, and have toured Europe on several occasions. On their incoming second album, At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb (Danish for, “to live as if there was hope”), PARASIGHT has sharpened their melodic and Scandinavian sounding D-beat fueled by equal parts metal, punk, and hardcore. On At Leve Som Hvis Der Var Et Håb, PARASIGHT delivers a consistent metallic hardcore record which in its political songwriting carries an indignant system critique. With inspiration from the political Danish rock of the 1970s, lyricist and lead singer Michael Aagesen writes easily intelligible anti-elite lyrics in which content is above form. The album was produced by the band itself, mixed by Swedish producer legend Fredrik Nordström (Martyrdöd, At The Gates, Wolfbrigade), mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, From Ashes Rise, Integrity), and bears the artwork of German artist Philip Janta.
