Citadel Release Debut Album ‘Decompose’

Brisbane prog-metal rising stars Citadel just dropped their debut album Decompose. Featuring overarching heavy, technical metalcore influences punctuated with soaring anthemic hooks, evocative vocalsand euphoric synths, Decompose is a beautifully crafted piece that is addictive and will keep you coming back for more.

Decompose is an album inspired by heartbreak & death, themed around “the end.” It wrestles with themes of grief, regret, and pain and explores the depths of those emotions across the tracks. When writing these songs we were inspired to take what might have been traditional Metalcore, and give it an extra level of thoughtfulness,” says frontman Russell Miller.

“We wanted every new moment to stand on its own, but to also be an integral part of what was happening with each song. Sonically we’ve aimed to create a body of work that sways between delicate & crushing, bringing huge dynamics that tell part of the story on their own.”
