Blank TV Premiere DISPARAGER Acoustic Video 'Gratitude'; Show Dates (NYC, OH, DE); New EP 'Timeless, Ageless'
Brooklyn, NY's post rock metal band DISPARAGER has teamed up with Blank TV for the premiere of their new acoustic video 'Gratitude', the third track off their recently released debut EP 'Timeless. Ageless' produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Bane, H2O, American Nightmare, Polar Bear Club).
"A handful of Disparager songs stemmed from me playing acoustic guitar and grew from there, and acoustic playing is extremely intimate. It's just you, and a block of wood, no distortion or drums or density of metal orchestration, and the end result is that uniquely human element that you bring to the table. Plus, I love screaming over acoustic guitar, it always gets heads to turn and there's this stupid yet special "shock value" factor to its naked abrasiveness. " comments vocalist / guitarist Chris Ahkao.

Formed just last year, DISPARAGER has always had the crazy notion that music is art and that art is never a means to an end but an end in itself. As an extension of frontman Chris AhKao regaining his life from personal demons, this debut EP is a testament to that. Bursting with dense rawness and precision while pushing the boundaries of metal with tracks like "At Least I Still Have Bon Iver" – half folk song, half crushing mix of Isis and Slayer - and "Pictures” - a time signature mindfuck the band is proud NOT to call prog rock. The music is meant to showcase a refusal to settle, to compromise, to live any other life than that inspired by unwavering intent, self-expression and integrity.
