PARADOGMATA present their first full-length album: Endetid is Norwegian for end time. Mankind is doing away with itself, no one intervenes against it and the future of the planet is uncertain. This is the album’s leitmotif, fueling a vast spectrum of stormy thrash sounds, thoughtful passages and traditional heavy metal riffs. The band is stylistically broadly positioned, strictly rejects blinkers and doesn't really like to classify itself. Nevertheless, on Endetid PARADOGMATA drew a path: "Metal for the schizophrenic, haha. We love those songs, though the new material is more firmly rooted in the borderlands between thrash, death & black, but still with our melodic approach."
PARADOGMATA take us on a dramatic journey of challenging songs that look behind the scenes of society. The band makes a clear statement: Indifference and too much power lead to downfall. "Does the world deserve having us as 'alphas'?" is the question, their album will leave us with.
Endetid was recorded at NordStern Studio with Kenneth "Ahzari" Jorgensen (Beyond Man, Saligia) and C. Broholt (Katechon, Hellstorm, Infant Death) in winter 2021/summer 2022 and mixed and mastered by P.V. Leth-Olsen at Granraude Studio. It features guest vocals by Robert Lowe (Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, Tyrant, Grief Collector) and Chris Hathcock (The Reticent, Xael), with backing vocals by Magnus Helmersen (The Federation). The album artwork and design came from Remedy Art Design, who have also worked for Evergrey, Oceans of Slumber, Kamelot, Blood Red Throne, Amaranthe, The Crown, Hexed, Seventh Wonder, Maladie & The Midgard Project.
