AZURE EMOTE
"THE GRAVITY OF IMPERMANENCE"
SELFMADEGOD RECORDS

AZURE EMOTE hails from my old home city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The band
started back in 2003 and later went on hold in 2007, while the bands mastermind Mike
Hrubovcak focused on his other bands
VILE, MONSTROSITY & ABRAXAS. In 2011
AZURE EMOTE was reactivated and then came the bands second release "THE
GRAVITY OF IMPERMANENCE".
AZURE EMOTE is a bit of a departure from what
we have seen Mike do in his other bands. This band is more of an Avant-garde Death Metal
band. There is now boundaries for what the band is doing, but they are still very much a
Death Metal band. The music has some really far out spaced sounds mixed with some world
music and even some Middle Eastern influences. The music does stay on the heavier side of
Death Metal for the most part, but branches out a lot into some other sounds. I loved this
about the band a lot. It really makes them stand out amongst the many bands in the genre,
but these guys stand out because they have done this with perfection. Adding in non
traditional instruments in the Death Metal scene like violins, saxophone, harmonica along
with haunting female vocals mixed with Death growls all add to this. I am a big fan of both
VILE & MONSTROSITY, but feel AZURE EMOTE really shows the true talent as a
musician that Mike really possesses. Mike's artwork through
VISUAL DARKNESS & his
many bands in the underground scene truly have made him a huge and important part in the
history of the Death Metal genre.
AZURE EMOTE is yet another example of this!
