Conjurer Say Their New Album Is Full Of “Hopeless, Nasty, Miserable Songs” And “Some Obvious Converge Worship”


Conjurer guitarist/vocalist Brady Deeprose has provided Metal Hammer with an update on the band’s forthcoming new album which they have been recording in recent weeks. That effort will mark the group’s first record since signing with Nuclear Blast earlier this year as well.

When asked if they feel any pressure to follow-up their debut album “Mire“, Deeprose responded:

“I don’t think so, no. We do feel really good about the songs, but it is a truly miserable, hopeless record. It really mirrors the mood of the year I think – you know I love playing live, that’s where I’m happiest, and we haven’t been able to do that for ages. Also, I’m moving to a different country and getting married and trying to do that in a pandemic is incredibly stressful, so there’s a lot of frustration in these songs.”

When later asked about the sound of the record, he replied:

“I know every band will tell you ‘It’s the heaviest thing we’ve ever done!’, but we’ve been so fucked off with the state of everything that it has just made us write these really vile and disgusting songs. I think we’ve got a bit better at knowing exactly what we want to achieve as songwriters, so I think there’s less fat on them and they do everything we want them to do in a much more condensed way. But, they’re hopeless, nasty, miserable songs, even more so than the last record. It’s really quite extreme. There’s some obvious Converge worship on the record, too. That’s kind of the vibe we’re going for: super-heavy, technically wild, super-bleak.”
