The four Danish women of Konvent may conjure up a deserved revival for the whole death doom genre when they release their hotly anticipated album, Puritan Masochism, on January 24, 2020 via Napalm Records. Formed in 2015, the Copenhagen collective stoically trudges through the blackest mires – guttural vocals and tenacious riffing combined with menacingly heavy production make Puritan Masochism an irresistible highlight of early 2020! Today, Konvent unleashes a brand new single for the doomy-as-hell track “Trust”.
Guitarist Sara says: “Our second single, “Trust“, is written based on the opening riff, with sudden breaks to create a contrast between the heavy bass and the guitar. The lyrics are about how some groups can manipulate fragile people into opening up and sharing deep secrets, giving the group an immense power over them.”
