French doom-sludge three-piece Peine Kapital are inviting listeners to stream their new self-titled album a few days early. With songs about depression, human decay, and man’s inherently animalistic nature, their latest effort is as dark as it gets, plunging listeners into the band’s world of sonic despair. The album can be streamed now at No Clean Singing ahead of its official release on Friday, October 27th.
Peine Kapital’s self-titled effort is their most ferocious and punishing work yet, standing tall as a brutal, nihilistic magnum opus. Fans and music critics alike have lavished praise upon the band for their previous releases, with one review describing them as a “vital force in the current heavy landscape”. Peine Kapital is unafraid to trudge through the dark underbelly of the human psyche, bringing back their findings to display them in the cold light of day for all to see.
“It’s hard to be optimistic in such a fucked up world,” the band said of the pessimistic subject matter on their new album. “Because we witness violence and ugliness on a daily basis, we can’t help but make music that is aggressive and filthy.”

About Peine Kapital:
Hailing from the picturesque city of Strasbourg in eastern France, Peine Kapital emerges as a formidable force in the realm of sludge and doom metal. The three-piece powerhouse is comprised of Thibault Bru on drums, Benjamin Simon on bass, and Renaud Deschamps on guitars, with the latter two members performing double duty as vocalists. The band is a collective born from the ashes of their previous musical endeavor, The Pledge Of Cain, also known as T.P.O.C. During their time together, the band had an impressive run, sharing the stage with the likes of Electric Wizard, Suma, and Nadja. The year 2013 marked the end of an era as T.P.O.C. disbanded following an intense tour across the United States.
However, the three found the allure of heavy distortion and the thunderous cadence of slow pounding riffs proved too irresistible to ignore. In 2017, the trio reunited, their passion for the music they loved driving them to reconvene and create something new. Thus, Peine Kapital was born. The band continues to push the boundaries of their genre, crafting an auditory experience that immerses listeners in their world of darkness and gloom. The trio manages to offer music that is abrasive and dynamic in equal measure, setting them apart from their contemporaries. With lyrics about politics and the state of the world at large, Peine Kapital is a punch to the face, both sonically and psychologically.
