Kaschalot started as a one-man-solo-project in 2014 with the release of an eponymous debut EP. In 2016, the solo-project became a four-piece band. In 2018, Kaschalot released their first full-length album ‘Whale Songs’, which earned the band a substantial following in Estonia and abroad. Despite the global challenges faced during 2020, the band still held a number of sold-out concerts, highlighting just how far they had come in just a few years.
Mixing instrumental rock with progressive, post-metal, and screamo supported by a foundation of major chords that makes that music sound light, cheerful and memorable, Kaschalot‘s style cannot be defined by any one genre.
Kaschalot began writing ‘Zenith’ at the start of 2020 and finished exactly on the brightest day of the year – the summer solstice. Oddly enough, mixing and mastering finished exactly on the winter solstice. Wanting to celebrate this balance and mark the midpoint of the creative process the band named their new record ‘Zenith’. With this release, the band is out to prove that they are ready to explore and experiment with the plethora of genres that inspire them as musicians, perhaps creating their own on the way.
Mixed by Pjotr Latosev and mastered by Lauri Liivak, the album will be released by French label Atypeek Music and Australian Stargazed Records.
