QAALM to release new EP


Los Angeles-based atmospheric doomsayers, QAALM, are preparing to unleash the highly anticipated follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut “Resilience & Despair”. This new EP titled “First Light Of The Last Dawn,” is set for release on CD, Cassette, and digital in June 2024.

“First Light Of The Last Dawn” will usher in a new era of QAALM, introducing influence from black metal and progressive rock, pushing their new material beyond the boundaries set by their earlier work. Even the production of this EP shows evolution and  elevation with the skillful engineering of Paul Fig and expert mixing and mastering of Zeuss, two powerhouses who have collectively worked with the likes of Slipknot, Hatebreed, and Municipal Waste.

Comparisons to the likes of Agalloch and the Peaceville Three only scratch the surface of the evolution of QAALM's sonic tapestry. As bands like Paradise Lost, Neurosis, and Mastodon have continued to reinvent themselves between albums, so to has QAALM reinvented and reinvigorated their sound, maintaining the spirit of their earlier work while creating new material that is even more dynamic and engaging. The next era of QAALM has begun!
