Kardashev is a Progressive Death Metal group focusing on the advancement of the human race through themes of technology, selflessness, love, and altruism.
We continues to develop thematic studio albums around a universe all our own, following a mysterious traveler as they experience time, space, emotion, loss, and much more. Kardashev was inspired by three key bands: The Contortionist, Fallujah, and Aegaeon.
Our 2012 DEMO, "Progression" is a three track proof of concept around the hypothetical science of the Kardashev Scale where the majority of our future content is based.
In 2013, we released Excipio under Subliminal Groove Records which began the traveler's journey through time. The EP expands on the direct interactions of the traveler in a short story focusing on part of the Kardashev scale; Tier 2.
The end of 2014 was a new venture for us as we released a single song with 8 minutes play time that has no bearing on the Kardashev universe, but rather a more, "Human" take on our style in the song Iota. This is part I of III.
2015 was a seminal year for our first full album. Peripety. An endeavor again separate from the Kardashev universe, delving more into the emotional element of our music.
In 2017, we released another insight into our traveler's story titled The Almanac.
On May 12, 2020, Kardashev released The Baring of Shadows; an album about pain and loss. Nothing more. Pain does not choose sides.https://kardashevband.com
