April 6, 2017

It's been about a year since we started recording our upcoming album "The Throes of Scourge" and about 8 months of promoting our single "Mother Pestilence", sending it to different magazines, zines and labels. Although we have been getting positive reviews, no label has picked us up and the one's that where interested, had their schedule for 2017 complete and couldn't sign us until 2018.

With that in mind, we have decided to release the album ourselves. 10 tracks of fast and brutal death/thrash metal, excluding the track "Ruins of Serenity" that was on the single, so be sure to pick up a copy of that too, before we run out.

The full length will come in a glossy six-panel digipak with a set of postcards of the artwork created by the talented Natalia Drepina. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered at Audiogrind Studio by Linus Nirbrant during the spring/early summer of 2016. We will also release this on various streaming platforms as well as on Bandcamp, so stay tuned.
