ESCUELA GRIND to Release 'Dreams On Algorithms' Album In October

New England extreme metal powerhouse, Escuela Grind, will release its new LP, Dreams on Algorithms,on October 18 via MNRK Heavy (High on Fire, Zakk Wylde). Recorded at Salem, Massachusetts’ GodCitystudio with producer Kurt Ballou, and mastered by Nick Townsend (Dr. Dre, Betty Davis) the record is the highly anticipated follow-up to Escuela Grind’s celebrated 2022 full-length debut, Memory Theater.


Speaking on the album title, ‘Dreams on Algorithms’, vocalist Katerina Economou says, “We wanted to write an album that identifies what it’s like to consume in this era we live in: what we receive through our phones, the social media landscape, and personalized algorithms, and how it is translated by our subconscious. I think most people can relate to something in their online sphere infecting their dreams. This transfer was something we really wanted to expand on, and all of the songs have themes relating to dream analysis and technology.”

“I had the idea for the “Turbulence” title during a plane ride where I thought I was actually gonna die,” says Escuela Grind drummer Jesse Fuentes. “My mind was fixated on landing and playing the next show. It helped me cope, and then it kept happening on a couple of flights after that. My last in-person conversation with Napalm Death’s Shane Embury was very emotional; he suggested we add clean vocals after he overheard Katerina doing some clean singing on the tour bus (after shows, on our winter 2023 European tour with NxDx, everyone would sing along together. it really was magical). The vocal hook and melody on “Turbulence” was created a day before vocals were to be recorded at GodCity. We took that airplane experience, and wrote some straightforward, but meaningful lyrics.”

“It will be immediately obvious when you first hear this song that it is a departure for us,” offers Economou. “We wanted to take a risk with “Turbulence”, and after performing so many live shows over the last year we were ready to compile all that influence. The clean singing may take some people off-guard coming from a grind/hardcore band, but after touring with Napalm Death, we realized we wanted to incorporate that aspect into our music in a similar way. We definitely wanted a grungy, catchy chorus to sing at all of our upcoming festival appearances, and I hope the fans like the song as much as we do”
