Profound Lore will deliver the introductory wrath from blackened hardcore outfit TOTALED in late March. The new outfit’s debut album Lament will see release on March 29th, and this week the label has issued the cover art, track listing, and initial single, “Transience.”
Exhaling the ashes from acrimony, TOTALED materialized in 2017 and recorded its ferociously blackened-hardcore debut album, Lament. While lyrically ruminating in the abstract emptiness of an impervious void and grappling with paradoxical duality, the auditory gloom of Lament conjures sorrowing burial strings that furiously discharge into an onslaught of punishing resonance wrought with crushing despair, depression, and scavenging hopelessness. Pummeling blasts and d-beats pound into peripherally orbiting shadows of the pixelated black, beneath the pulverizing density of nihilistic bass distortion in a mournful offering of somber funeral strains; the digested celestial nothingness of the eaten, frozen in dimensions of cyclical nooses and gnawing bacterial ether. Conceived incarnations of sorrowful mists from the harvest, bereaving the morbid light in which we suffer.
Lament‘s first single “Transience” is now playing HERE.
Dispatching eight tracks in less than thirty-seven minutes, Lament is completed with ominous cover artwork by Andrew Tremblay. Profound Lore will issue the album on LP, CD, and digital platforms on March 29th. Watch for preorders and additional audio previews in the bleak weeks ahead.
