As ROZAMOV prepares to unveil their debut album, This Mortal Road, through a joint release by Battleground Records and Dullest Records on March 3rd, the LP’s crushing “Wind Scorpion” hymn has been unleashed upon the population through No Clean Singing.
The members of ROZAMOV collectively issue of the new song, “Wind Scorpions are horrifying looking insects indigenous to the Middle East. There are stories of swarms of them devouring entire camels, but they are pretty much harmless. The concept of something being frightening in spectacle but in reality, harmless was really interesting to us, but really doesn’t have much to do with the lyrics which are about internal struggle and loss.”
Offers No Clean Singing with the track premiere, “Composed of slow, craggy chords that come down with bone-cracking force and dissonant notes mixed with shrieks of feedback, the music really is a crusher, made all the more punishing by drum hits that sound like a piece of lumber shattering against the back of a skull. And to amplify the song’s wrenching atmosphere, the lyrics are voiced in high, piercing, vehement howls, accompanied by equally agonized cries of anguish from the guitar. As the drums begin to rumble, the cries become even more jugular-shredding.”
Experience the “Wind Scorpion” only at THIS LOCATION.

ROZAMOV‘s This Mortal Road will see release March 3rd on vinyl through Battleground Records, on CD and cassette through Dullest Records, and digitally through the band. Digital preorders are posted HERE, and physical preorders at Battleground HERE and Dullest HERE.
ROZAMOV will begin a US tour at a record release show in Allston, Massachusetts the day This Mortal Road is issued, from there carving a clockwise path around the country through all of March. Hush will join ROZAMOV on first three shows in Brooklyn, Baltimore, and Richmond, and the tour also includes a set at Austin Terror Fest.
ROZAMOV recorded This Mortal Road at New Alliance Audio in Cambridge, Massachusetts during the bleak and historic winter of 2014-15, the album recorded and mixed by Jon Taft, mastered by Nick Z at New Alliance East Mastering, and the final product enshrouded with psychedelic photography by Andrew Weiss and layout by Matt Martinez. Through five monolithic passages, the band delivers over forty minutes of textured, melody-laced, doom metal, infusing a wide array of both devastating and entrancing elements, collectively unified in a sonic catharsis featuring the most expansive tracks ROZAMOV has created to date. Low-end tonal destruction merges with progressive/cerebral melodies, making This Mortal Road a must-hear for fans of Yob, Electric Wizard, Pallbearer, Graves At Sea, and Sourvein.
