After releasing two successful singles and playing several prestigious shows during the year, young Swedish Thrashers ERADIKATED will finally release their debut album "Descendants". On October 6th 2023 this beast will be unleashed in its full glory and hopefully the world is ready for this sonic attack.
The whole theme of the album is a dystopia and all the lyrics create a coherent story, written by lead singer and guitarist Elvin Landaeus Csizmadia. The purpose with "Descendants" is to listen from start to end, partly to get the story straight, but all the 11 tracks are also composed to fit together and create a natural flow where you don’t want to skip any songs.
"Descendants" is a diverse mix of fast, heavy and technical thrash metal where the common theme spells aggression. Even though you clearly can hear some influences of the 80’s Bay Area scene, ERADIKATED is not to be seen as some retro thing. This is a young, raw and uncompromising band that without a doubt is ready to take on the world – they are the voice of a new generation.
The album was produced by ERADIKATED themselves and recorded by the band's guitarist Ragnar Östberg in his own studio East Hill Audio, then mixed and mastered by the well-respected Gustav Brunn at All In Audio.
"'Descendants' is about an apocalyptic near future where climate disasters are ravaging humanity and greed has left everyone to fend for themselves. The lyrics tell a story of pain and suffering, and of different forces who try to bring about a new world. It's basically about a future I hope we can avoid." – Elvin Landaeus Csizmadia (Eradikated)
