The thundering war drums, the voices of the old ones, the monolithic rumble of the war charge; Coltsblood head unto the breach once more with a double LP of new war hymns, ‘Into The Unfathomable Abyss’.
Following on from 2013’s self-released (and Ulthar repressed) demo ‘Beyond The Lake Of Madness’ and their split with Crypt Lurker, the battle-charged trio from Liverpool present their latest offering of crushing, often suffocating, doom. The trio are primal, bleak, utterly devastating and dripping with tar-black sludge
‘Into The Unfathomable Abyss’ was recorded over the Autumnal Equinox of 2013 by Chris Fielding (Primordial, Winterfylleth, Napalm Death) at Skyhammer Studio and was mastered by James Plotkin, due to his extensive work with bands such as Khanate, Sunn O))) and Isis. The artwork was created by Grief bassist/vocalist and artist Eric C. Harrison.
Following a CD/Digital release on Candlelight Records, the seven-track album receives a much warranted vinyl pressing. The LP will be a co-release between Manchester’s DIY filth merchants Dry Cough Records and Dutch stalwarts Burning World Records. The battle-cries will be made available as a double LP in a gatefold sleeve, strictly limited to 300 copies. 100 of these will be pressed on Forest Green vinyl, with the remaining 200 pressed on Pitch Black vinyl.
