Today, The Obelisk is hosting an exclusive premiere of TOTIMOSHI‘s “Waning Divine,” the final track off the California trio’s soon-to-be-released new full-length, Avenger. A tune about growing old, “Waning Divine” is an surefire epic featuring Brent Hinds (Mastodon) and Scott Kelly (Neurosis, Shrinebuilder).
Check out the track HERE.
Avenger is set for release on August 16, 2011 via At A Loss Recordings. The record was produced by Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Shrinebuilder, Tool), mastered by John Golden (Melvins, Mike Watt, OM) and includes appearances by HInds and Kelly as well as Dale Crover.

Founded in Oakland, CA in 1997 by Aguilar and Meg Castellanos (bass, vocals), TOTIMOSHI went through a slew of drummers before joining visions with Kansas City’s Chris Fugitt. Fugitt, a ferocious drummer who’s part John Bonham, part Keith Moon, part Elvin Jones, further ignited this volcanic trio into what it is today. Their albums are a journey into the soul. Their live sets are pure energy slowly smoldering into combustion. Past releases Mysterioso?, MonolÃ, LadrÃ³n, and Milagrosa have received countless rave reviews and new album, Avenger, will no doubt satisfy fans and critics alike once again.
