Planepacked’s metaltronica sound is taking a dark turn into the realms of death and thrash. The new song “Harrowhark”, follows the release of the sophomore record ”Transactinides”, is a love letter to the literary series The Locked Tomb.
Mastermind Jessica Kagan states this about upcoming record:
“The 3rd Planepacked record might be a ways off, but this single should give you a taste of that album’s more diverse moods and sounds; admittedly from the deepest, darkest, and most bloodstained side of Planepacked . After all, this is a tribute to the Locked Tomb books by Tamsyn Muir, even down to my chosen release date (September 9th).”
The next book in the series (Nona the Ninth) was launched on September 13th. The release of the new song is a homage to the series given how much symbolism the number nine is infused with throughout the novels. The Massachusetts based project unleashes their darkness as “Harrowhark” explodes into life with harsh, abrasive electronics. The new song is an epic assault of intense metal instrumentation, demonic harsh vocals and ludicrous speed, all shrouded in textural electronics.
This brutal exhibit unveils the more extreme range of Plancepacked’s identity. “Harrowhark” provides a thrilling interlude between the previous record ”Transactinides” and the eagerly anticipated third record.
