The Gravity Of Impermanence, the grand, second full-length from avant-garde death metal entity AZURE EMOTE — the massive project fully envisioned and created by Mike Hrubovcak (Monstrosity, Vile, Divine Rapture, Abraxas) — is out now worldwide via Selfmadegod Records.
Under Mike Hrubovcak’s direction, songwriting and full-on participation in its creation, The Gravity Of Impermanence was executed utilizing musicians from Death, Fear Factory, Yakuza, Monstrosity, Tristania, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder and more. With over an hour of material displayed through fourteen tracks, the album is fueled by pummeling blast beats, electronic programming, a mixture of both guttural and haunting vocal styles, violins, saxophone, harmonica and a barrage of other instruments coalescing in a melting pot of misanthropic darkness that defines the AZURE EMOTE ethos, recorded, mixed and mastered by Ron Vento of Aurora Borealis at Nightsky Studios. The cover art was once again done by Hrubovcak, his Visual Darkness works well-known in the death/grind communities having illustrated album covers for Sinister, Grave, Cattle Decapitation, Hate Eternal, Mortician, and many others.
In proclamation of its release, Metal Underground has posted a meticulous interview with Hrubovcak including a detailed track-by-track breakdown of The Gravity Of Impermanence, alongside an exclusive stream of the entire new album.
