Exclusive Song Premiere Of Psych/Doom/Stoner Metallers KALGON New Song THE ISOLATE From Forthcoming Debut Album

Kalgon is a heavy psych / stoner doom trio from Western North Carolina. Kalgon combines the drone of throwback stoner doom, ethereal textures of post metal, and the pillaging gallop of thrash and black metal.

Opening for acts such as Lie Heavy, Indus Valley Kings, Smoke, Stormtoker, among others, Kalgon has developed a regional following around Asheville, NC. Live shows are ruled by raw dynamics and a dark, foreboding atmosphere.

For fans of Sleep, The Sword, Baroness, and Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats.

Kalgon’s 7 track debut album features the raw elements that have defined them since they began two years ago. With a truly DIY approach, Kalgon’s self-titled release portrays the trio as they sound, with minimal embellishment. The album was engineered by Kalgon and mixed by Kevin Boggs.

With heavy psych, thrash, blues and stoner-doom stylings matched with steady low end riffs, the album runs a varied and dynamic course, all while nodding to throwback doom grooviness.

Lyrically, the album tells a story of Kalgon, a fungus that reawakens from the Devonian period by having spores that remain preserved in the exosphere after a comet carries it into orbit around Earth for hundreds of millions of years. The fungus then begins to colonize the minds of humans, controlling them to reformulate the atmosphere of Earth for warmer, more favorable conditions and more methane for the hivemind parasitic space fungus.

Kalgon say this about the song "band: 

"The Isolate introduces us to the strain of mega-fungi that has developed a way to use the nervous system of humans as host. It does not kill its' host, rather uses them to do its' bidding, raising global temperature and humidity and releasing more methane. By any means necessary, it will develop a world more fitting to its' heyday, the Devonian period.

They spawn with the rain, careful of the ones left behind, conquered by the veiled surprise.  The Isolate is truly the terror of the ages."
