SAMSKARAS Release New Lyric Video


Montreal progressive death metallers Samskaras have just released their second single, “Red Hill” along with a lyric video created by Big James Arsenian (Endast).



Samskaras is the new metal project founded by Montreal-based musician Eric Burnet (Derelict). With songs written from an exploratory perspective, influences as far-flung as Gorguts, The Ocean, Enslaved, Wood Of Ypres, The Faceless, Gojira and more are mixed into inventive combinations. Burnet is joined by drummer Alexandre Dupras, known for his work with (the)Plasmarifle, Unhuman and Teramobil.

“Red Hill” tells the story of one of Burnet’s actual ancestors, from his birth in a London jail during the industrial revolution to his establishing a family in Canada.
