Although active on the live front ever since their foundation in 2006, Serbian Black Metal commando KOLAC have released their latest official material "Zauvek crni" in 2014. Now, 9 years later, KOLAC reveal a new digital material in anticipation of their third full-length album to be unleashed later this year in collaboration with Pest Records.
KOLAC - Advance Promo 2023 is available for streaming and free download here: https://pestrecords.bandcamp.com/album/kolac-advan...
Here are KOLAC's comments on the new material: "In a line of firsts in Kolac's career, we've come upon our first fully digital release. In actuality, it is an advance selection of pre-production, demo material for the upcoming full length album that is well-underway. The three tracks presented here were among the first to be written for the record, with "Jebo te Bog" being written long time ago and actually already published and performed live extensively over the years. However, we've agreed to have it properly recorded and published for the wider audience than what the limitation on its original release was. "Eppur Si Muove" and "Monsieur de la Nuit" are here before our fans for the first time, while we crack the door into our third album just a tiny bit."
A new visualizer video for the track "Eppur si Muove" was recently released and available here:
KOLAC's upcoming official effort will be a special one: a self-titled loose concept record featuring 9 new tracks plus intro revolving around the usage of stakes (KOLAC in Serbian language) as punishment methods in the Middle Ages and beyond. Primarily a traditional Black Metal band, KOLAC allows plenty of Thrash Metal touches to enrich their compositions, and the result is a combination of primal fury and energy, with darkened melodies and rhythmic diversity.
Here's what the band had to say about their upcoming album and collaboration with Pest Records: "It is but a pinnacle... The memory from the time we've made the initial contact fades. Pest Records has ever supported us and when it came to searching for an honest, dedicated label that shares our passion for dark soundscapes, there were obvious pointers. Through various forms of collaboration to the finalization of this agreement, we do not only hope, but are actually certain that we have found a reliable partner to help spread our wings further. We are beyond honored to be on Pest Records! Long awaited new music from Kolac is well on its way. Look out for pest's new breed!"
