In 2013, Kardashev released “Excipio” with the minds of Nico Mirolla, Mark Garrett, Chris Gerlings, and James Hyatt.
Musically, these tracks were an achievement in blending Death Metal with Atmospheric Themes.
Lyrically, these songs were written about a Sci-Fi story during the second level of the Kardashev Scale.
Recorded by Nico Mirolla.

Ambiance washes in and out of these tracks, and atmospheric electronics compliment a pleasant listening experience. A sense of hope generated by synthesis lies underneath these songs otherwise filled with chunky, thick deathcore riffage. This gives Kardashev a refreshing uniqueness in a crowded genre. Keep an ear on them.Jerry Grannan, Aegaeon
Kardashev takes notes from some superior metal icons. I immediately hear influences from TesseracT, The Faceless, & Opeth. A great group of prog influences. This band however, instead of attempting to be those bands, has brought on their own sound. I hear a heavy lean towards the old school melodic death metal side of In Flames. I’m interested to see which road this up and coming metal band takes. Flawless production and an acute sense of all musical genres is making for an awesome new band….Kardashev!!Adam Cody, Wretched
