Indie Recordings has announced the signing of the Bergen, Norway-based "hardcore punk sludge metal" band LAKEI. The group's debut album, "Konspirasjoner", will be released on April 20. The CD's first single, "Ansikter", can be streamed below.

An Indie Recordings press release describes LAKEI's sound in the following way: "Paranoid apocalyptic premonitions. Nuclear war. Massive environmental destruction and corrupt world leaders. Lakei from Bergen, Norway dwell in an angst filled and aggressive dimension; a world in collapse where oppressors feast on the gagged carcass of man. Dystopian nightmares materialize through a straggling offensive of towering bass lines, distorted barb wire guitar attacks and twisted, crass vocals. Imagine AMEBIX and AXEGRINDER dismembering NEUROSIS on an altar of early black metal, wrapped in shadowy post-hardcore, and you might get the gist of it."
