Massachusetts-based doom collective – which unites Warhorse, Grief, Disrupt, Desolate, and Martyrvor alumni – will unleash their Sins Of The Elders full-length next month. Captured at Raven’s Head Studio in Allston, Massachusetts with Eric Braunschweiger at the recording helm, with Sins Of The Elders the members of CONCLAVE fuse their death and doom influences into a unique amalgam of heavy grooves, pounding sludge and melodic doom.

In celebration of the record’s impending unveiling, today Decibel Magazine unsheathes the visual accompaniment to CONCLAVE‘s “Cut It Off” for communal feasting. The performance video was filmed by a band friend in Worcester, Massachusetts the first time they performed the track live.

“Both musically and lyrically, ‘Cut It Off’ is punching yourself out of a box,” elaborates CONCLAVE of the latest Sins Of The Elders teaser. “When you’ve had enough of the shit and nothing seems to matter or hold value anymore, you reach the point where you’re willing and ready to destroy everything, starting with yourself. Scorched. Fucking. Earth.”

You can also bask in the doomy delights of “Aethereum” still streaming at Cvlt Nation at THIS LOCATION as well as “Black Lines,” courtesy of The Obelisk, at THIS LOCATION.

Building off CONCLAVE‘s 2014 self-released Breaking Ground EP, Sins Of The Elders boasts nine grisly tracks of staggeringly heavy and atmospheric oppression – pure and honest metal in an uncompromised form. In an advance investigation of the record, The Obelisk hails a record that, “expands both the command and the crush of that release [Breaking Ground] with an assured direction toward abysmal sludge, the metal of death, and consuming disaffection. In the slow, dense roll of ‘Cut It Off’ and the quiet acoustic closer ‘Kaltas’ alike, CONCLAVE maintain an oppressive feel that dares the listener to keep moving forward along its plotted course.” Sins Of The Elders will be released on CD through Lost Apparitions Records and on cassette via PATAC Records on June 10th, 2016.

Watch CONCLAVE crumble stages throughout Massachusetts on their upcoming live dates. Additional onstage decimations are in the plotting stages.
