The debut from Phoenix outfit, NAUGHT, will arise through Battleground Records this Fall, with a limited edition release of their self-titled debut album set to hit this month as the band raids the fourth annual installment of Southwest Terror Fest. In advance of the looming release, the crypt of Cvlt Nation is hosting the brand new track “Firmament; Alight” from the impending album as part of a Southwest Terror Fest mixtape.
NAUGHT was born into obscurity in 2013, formulating a morose and primal brew of metal with dark poetry infused into the music and artwork as the lyrical and thematic basis for each movement, inspired by nature, death, loss and suicide. The self-titled introductory release from the horde reveals no aspects of the members’ identities, rousing listeners to delve into the grim passages. Four extensive movements drag the listener through a caustic and punishing journey through the blackest abscesses of existence with hypnotic, droning expanses permeating from within the downtuned, suffocating, suffering insanity. The nearly eleven minutes of “Firmament; Alight” will attest to this, as proven through its public emergence via Cvlt Nation.
Let NAUGHT’s “Firmament; Alight” pull you under via Cvlt Nation’s Southwest Terror Fest mixtape RIGHT HERE.
Naught will see its birth through Battleground Records with limited pressings of 50 tapes and 100 CDs to be released at the band’s performance at Southwest Terror Fest Vol. 4 in Tucson, Arizona next Friday, October 16th, where they’ll play alongside Graves At Sea and Bongripper.
