Climax is the debut full length from Finnish apocalyptic post-punk rock quartet BEASTMILK.
Recorded, mixed, and produced in July of 2013 at GodCity Studios by Kurt Ballou, the album features 10 songs of staggering refinement, brilliance, and complete mastery the likes that only rarely appear on albums destined for classic, genre -cornerstone status.
It’s almost paradoxical to consider, but Climax conveys a true, genuine excitement and all-consuming state of euphoric thrall in the face of the bleak, end-of-days thematic narratives spun by vocalist Kvohst. Instead of stereotypically brooding and glacially plodding through the inherent darkness cast from Kvohst’s poetic spells, the instrumentalists of BEASTMILK (guitarist Goatspeed, drummer Paile, and bassist Arino) apply a unique, surging catchiness composed of infectious anthemic charges and unbreakable spirit from beginning to end.
True to form, when the end finally comes and consumes all else, Climax stands as the enduring battle hymn for the exhilarated survivors of a cold world.
