Decibel Magazine is today hosting the exclusive stream of Austin, Texas-based progressive death/black metal outfit HAUNTER’s third LP, Discarnate Ails, ahead of its official release this Friday through Profound Lore Records. The advance streaming comes as the band’s European tour kicks off today in Berlin.
The follow up to 2019’s Sacramental Death Qualia LP, Discarnate Ails showcases HAUNTER as one of the most enlightening and dynamic bands within the present-day progressive death/black metal movement and one of the pioneering prospects of the scene. HAUNTER has tapped into the next level unparalleled with their most complex, advanced, and their most furious and heaviest release to date. The three epic chapters that form the album weave through intricate, dissonant, and vitriolic passages that find the notable balance of challenging melodious movements and parts while maintaining the band’s sense of creating epochal songs of triumph and mastery.
Mixed by Arthur Rizk and mastered by Dan Lowndes, Discarnate Ails features cover artwork by Elijah Tamu, additional art by 47_N_74D0 and Saprophial, and design by Chimere Noire.
Alongside their early stream of the album, Decibel Magazine has published an extensive interview on the band, the feature stating in part, “Discarnate Ails dances with death, all right: throaty, witchy, intricate.”
Tune in and stream HAUNTER’s Discarnate Ails first only through Decibel now at THIS LOCATION.
