Second pressing of Contradiction from Switzerland's Schammasch. Produced by Triptykon/Celtic Frost guitarist V. Santura, this monolithic double album is a challenging, forward-thinking black metal work of significant importance and one of the defining extreme metal records of 2014. "Irreverent and antagonistic, beautifully metaphysical yet bristling with menace, the music of Schammasch denies categorization in a way that only the most creative Black Metal can do. A contradiction in more than name alone, it combines unstable forces and unpredictable elements in strange, new ways, using the energy of opposition to feed a constant process of creation and destruction. There's a fine line between genius and insanity. This is an album that tests the very fabric of that line" (No Clean Singing).

Label: Prosthetic Records
