Black Metal

Hear the Grieving Blackened Sludge of CHASSM “Dolores 2.0”

Processed with VSCO with x1 preset

Chassm vocalist/guitarist Elijah Lee describes their music as sounds to make us “feel hopeless, depressed, and a great deal of grief.” He’s not referring to the track that we’re excited to share with you today, “Dolores 2.0,” but his words are fitting for the blend of sludge, post-rock, and blackened grunge I hear in it. It reminds me of what I lost when live music shut down—an emotional outlet. Live music is therapeutic for me, allowing me to release whatever feelings I’ve trapped in the trauma zone of my soul. As I listen to Chassm’s new release, Falling Forever—coming via Art As Catharsis on June 24th (pre-order it here)—I can tell that this is exactly the kind of music created for opening that emotional portal. Right now, I’m turning to Chassm because I have nowhere else to go. I hope that “Dolores 2.0” lets you tap into the shadowy places of your inner world, too.
