OROCHEN is more than a band, it’s a collective whose music is based on dark contemplations of a world where humans and the environment are thought of as economic resources. A society formed under a new religion that most of us know as capitalism, a religion that alienates people from the natural psychological mechanisms shaped by evolutionary processes over millions of years. New to the Suicide Records family, Orochen release their third EP, Thylacine, on September 18, 2020.
The band’s musical influences come from a rich blend of genres such as modern Americana, indie, folk music, sludge, hardcore and early 00’s post rock and this EP is the result of the bands constant search to find their own unique core sound.
Written, produced and recorded by Orochen during Corona lockdown, which has influenced the lyrics, music and sounds, Thylacine was mixed and mastered by Karl Daniel Lidén (Crippled Black Phoenix, Greenleaf, Novarupta, Breach, The Old Wind) and features the guest vocals of Alex Stjernfelt (Novarupta, Ex. Mr Death, Ex. Moth Gatherer) on the closing song “The Jonestown Deathtape”.
