Metalcore Newcomers Cauldron Announce Debut Album

Cauldron Band promo

Birmingham metalcore quintet Cauldron have shared details of their debut album. ‘Suicide In The City’ will be released on November 3rd through  The Coming Strife Records (UK/EU) and Ephyra Records (US).

With topics such as anxiety, self-worth, grief and mental health struggles among those covered, ‘Suicide In The City’ is a concept album based around a group therapy session in Seattle. It’s run by the main character of the story, Tristram St. Claire. Interweaving throughout are the stories of characters from the group, making an in-depth tale ladened with the physical and mental struggles of all involved.

Its concept is influenced by the experiences of Cauldron vocalist Frazer Cassling and his struggles with mental health, portrayed through characters, as he pulled himself through the lowest time of his life.

“The album’s concept was conceived during the worst period of my life,” states Cassling. “The story is laced with things I needed to write to myself. During this time I was diagnosed with OCD, and this really changed the shape of where the album was going. The lyrics are ultra-personal, whilst being really story-focused.”

‘Suicide In The City’ follows two EP’s (2020’s ‘Last Words: Screamed From Behind God​’​s Muzzle’ and 2018’s ‘The Scars of Empty Faith’).
