Waiting for black metal records to come in the mail

I bring you good news and bad news.

First the bad news, our weekend tour with Funeral Procession has been postponed. That same weekend had the 30th-year anniversary of Death in June, and members of both bands really want to go there. We are looking at November now for new data.

In good news, we'll be returning to the Irish shores soon! We have been asked by Siege of Limerick to play their annual festival on the 30th of October, and so we will!
It's an alldayer, with loads of amazing bands (I do know that Guttrench is one of the filthiest death metal bands I ever heard, ripping stuff. Rites is class too)

We'll probably be playing a show the day before in Cork, the guys from FiveWillDie and Siorai Geimhreadh are working on that.

The lads of the former band will be sharing stages with us on their Dutch league of the tour at the end of September, with a bit of luck we'll have our records then! Somewhere next week we'll finish the recording of "A Chosen Hollow", as soon as that's done I'll try to upload some snippets of the song.

To Pluck Up The Night By Its Skin

You can pre-order our record now!

We've approved the test-pressings, Mell Dettmer at Sinister Kitchen did an amazing job in mastering our 12", the sound has improved immensely. She has done stuff for Earth, Trap Them, Sunn O)))), Altar of Plagues, Six Organs of Admittance and Fauna a.o., and you can hear her expertise in the end-result, more prominence for every instrument, a better balance and a broader, deeper sound.

We'll get our part of the deal around mid-September probably, with a bit of luck we'll have them for the mini-tour with FiveWillDie and Wizard's Beard, both of whom'll have a new record with them as well!

With this pre-order comes a contest, where you can win the original artwork for the shirts by mr. Eikenaar.

Somewhere along the next two weeks we'll finish recording the split with STARVE, more updates then!

Sick Transit Gloria Mundi

Today, the test-presses arrived. According to Richard and me, they sound AMAZING, but we have to wait what the judgement of the rest will be. Know that the sound, when compared with the EP, is far more expansive, the bass has more prominence and there are no FUCKING ANNOYING GAPS BETWEEN SONGS. As far as I'm concerned, we've got a definite improvement here.

As soon as we approve, this will be sent to press, and I think that we will be able to sell them around half September. We'll get a couple of golden vinyl records and somewhat more black, the rest of them will be sold via Shawn's amazing Antithetic Records. At the end of August, STARVE will record their half of the split while we finish up our song, so expect that one around October.

Since things are finally working out for us, we definitely feel an urge to write songs now, to complete the full-length. I really hope we can start this at the beginning of next year.

I leave you with the assignment to buy stuff from Heinali & Matt Finney, they are two amazing guys with an unrelenting musical eerieness that keeps you awake at night, clutching at straws.
