On further news, HARK's set at Roadburn Festival 2014 is now streaming courtesy of Dutch National Radio 3Voor12 here. The show of the Welsh heavy-rock trio at Roadburn was recorded during the launch tour for their debut album 'Crystalline' in April last year. The band has also just released a tour recap clip entitled "Hounded By Callous Decree", which is showing here.
HARK are furthermore streaming their entire breathtaking performance at this year's edition of the renowned Hellfest Open Air via the official festival channel. You can view the show here. On other news, the heavy rocking Welshmen have released a new version with much improved sound of their amazing video for the song "Scarlet Extremities" taken from their acclaimed debut album 'Crystalline'. You can now watch the clip here.
The band has previously released a lyric video off the album, for the track "Black Hole South West".
HARK are touring in support of their debut full-length album, 'Crystalline', which has just been named as one of the best six metal album of 2014 by Entertainment Weekly and is still available in various formats via the Season of Mist shop.
The phoenix of classical myth was considered to be a creature of great beauty. Bursting into flames at the end of its life cycle, the bird would be reborn out of the ashes of its predecessor. HARK share a similar fate as the trio is spawned from the remnants of celebrated British heavy rockers TAINT. The creative hand of frontman Jimbob Isaac can be clearly felt throughout HARK's fantastic debut album "Crystalline". Angular riffing, pounding rhythms, and dually melodic and his unrelentingly ferocious vocals lead to galloping passages that show the maturity of a band far more honed than expected from a debut. The Welsh did not leave any detail to chance, but carefully crafted music, lyrics and visuals into an all encompassing concept. This diligence includes having their first full-length mixed by Kurt Ballou of CONVERGE fame (KVELERTAK, TORCHE), who added a powerful yet crystal clear production to HARK's unique sound. The artwork was personally designed and drawn by Jimbob Isaac, who is not just known as an outstanding musician but also working as an acclaimed graphic artist. "Crystalline" furthermore features guest vocals from Neil Fallon (CLUTCH) on the stunning track "Clear Light of....". HARK will literally rock the world with this release. Crank your volume up high and get blown away!
