On July 28, 2023 Rochester, New York based progressive Death Metallers CONTRARIAN will release a compilation entitled “Demos & Oddities: 1995 – 1999” via CD Baby. It will also be available for free on all streaming platforms. You can check out the opener ‘Loss Of Phase’ over here. Guitarist Jim Tasikas had this to say about the album: “As with many other progressive Death Metal bands in the ’90s such as DEATH, PESTILENCE, ATHEIST and CYNIC; CONTRARIAN also experienced disruptions in continuity from lack of support in the fledgling scene and lack of capable musicians within an innovating genre. Being able to record music during that time was more difficult. Bands commonly recorded demos under different names. MANTAS (DEATH), R.A.V.A.G.E. (ATHEIST), PORTAL (CYNIC). The same went for CONTRARIAN during these times (MANIC). Upon many requests from fans, we have gathered some of these demos in a collection. The 1990s were an amazing time for Metal in Rochester, New York as well. It was this time period that spawned bands such as DISGORGED (WITHERED EARTH), BURIED BENEATH (NIGHT CONQUERS DAY), LETHARGY (SULACO / MASTODON) and so many more. Most of these bands recording in the infamous Watchmen Studios in Lockport, New York with Doug White. It was an amazing time, and we hope you enjoy these vintage raw demos with a ‘live feel’ from around 1995-1999.” CONTRARIAN’s last studio album, “Sage Of Shekhinah”, was released earlier this year via Willowtip Records. You will find a full stream of it at this location. All further CONTRARIAN information you will find at www.facebook.com/contrarianmetal
