CHRCH‘s most recent full-length, the monolithic Light Will Consume Us All, is out now via Neurot Recordings. Traversing life’s journey of loss, reclamation and, ultimately, finding hope within the darkness, the music of CHRCH calls the listener to inhabit it, allowing enough room for its transmutation into anything one desires of it. Light Will Consume Us All was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Patrick Hills (King Woman, Bog Oak, VRTRA) at Earthtone Studios in Sacramento.
Wrote Metal Hammer of the release, “Light Will Consume Us All is driven by the fearless self-examination and move-any-mountain heft you’d expect from their hosts. But given the space to unfurl throughout its three, lengthy tracks, this is doom/sludge as psychic potholing, roving from claustrophobic crunch to dazed wonder, poking at deeply buried recesses of the heart and waking sleeping giants that lurk within…” Added Metal Injection, “Their music has toed the line between this sludge-ridden doom and outright funeral doom in the past…Light Will Consume Us All, sees the quintet teeter even further into a realm of dirge and lament.”
CHRCH’s Light Will Consume Us All is available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats via Neurot Recordings. For physical order bundles visit THIS LOCATION. The digital edition can be purchased HERE where the record is also streaming in full.
