QILIN signs with Wormholedeath & announces “Petrichor” Album


Paris based instrumental stoner combo QILIN has signed a licensing deal with Wormholedeath for their album “Petrichor“.

“Like this creature from the Asian mythology from which the band takes its name, Qilin plays a hybrid music alternating between powerful, raw parts and soaring interludes.”

Petrichor is the culmination of 5 years of friendship and work for us. It does express our energy in its raw and true form as it is today. We are now looking forward to spreading its vibes to the most people and playing it onstage. Carlo has well understood and appreciated it, so we would like to thank Wormholedeath records for their trust and positive words about our music.” Qilin

From the end of 2019, Qilin has been focused on composing and recording its self-made debut album, Petrichor soon to be re-released via Wormholedeath.

The cover was designed by a known graphic designer of the Parisian Stoner / Doom scene, Jo Riou. The reaping was performed by Christophe Stenström (Slowbot) & Jérôme Richelme (Harps). The mixing and mastering were made by Jérôme Richelme.

The band wanted to transcribe through this album the energy deployed during their live performance as faithful as possible, and thus engrave the imprint of their hybrid and psychedelic music.
