With ‘Crystalline’ we hope that you can hear a new band with an old soul“, comments mastermind Jimbob Isaac. “Nothing worthwhile is ever easy, and we hope the ‘do or die’ ethos behind this band and record connects with people on all levels. To pursue art and music, is to expand our consciousness, is to purge and is our two fingers up to those who say we can’t. Awaken, all ye algorithmic soul seekers, crystalline realization awaits you.”

Recorded at Monnow Valley Studios in Wales (BLACK SABBATH, RUSH, JUDAS PRIEST, PORTISHEAD) and mixed by CONVERGE guitarist Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE, HIGH ON FIRE, KVELERTAK, YOUNG WIDOWS), “Crystalline” will be released on March 14th, 2014 and is now available for pre-order on the Season of Mist e-shop. Tracklist and artwork can be found below:

The phoenix of classical myth was considered to be a creature of great beauty. Bursting into flames at the end of its life cycle, the bird would be reborn out of the ashes of its predecessor.HARK share a similar fate as the trio is spawned from the remnants of celebrated British heavy rockers TAINT. The creative hand of frontman Jimbob Isaac can be clearly felt throughout HARK‘s fantastic debut album “Crystalline”. Angular riffing, pounding rhythms, and dually melodic and his unrelentingly ferocious vocals lead to galloping passages that show the maturity of a band far more honed than expected from a debut. The Welsh did not leave any detail to chance, but carefully crafted music, lyrics and visuals into an all encompassing concept. This diligence includes having their first full-length mixed by Kurt Ballou of CONVERGE fame (KVELERTAK, TORCHE, ISIS), who added a powerful yet crystal clear production to HARK‘s unique sound. The artwork was personally designed and drawn by Jimbob Isaac, who is not just known as an outstanding musician but also working as an acclaimed graphic artist. “Crystalline” furthermore features guest vocals from Neil Fallon (CLUTCH) on the stunning track “Clear Light of….”. HARK will literally rock the world with this release. Crank your volume up high and get blown away!
