DESTRUCTION - Thrash Anthems II

Cover Art by Jordan Barlow (High On Fire, Ritual Killer)
Doom/sludge metal group Sourvein will release their very first Metal Blade Records offering, Aquatic Occult, this coming Friday, April 8th. The album features guest performances by Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe (vocals, organ), Amebix‘s Stig Miller (guitar), Corrosion of Conformity‘s Reed Mullin (drums) and many others, so listeners should undoubtedly expect a crushingly-heavy record of epic proportions – inspired by mysterious terrors of the deep ocean blue.

In celebration of this week’s release, Noisey.Vice.com is exclusively streaming Aquatic Occult in its entirety two days early. Listen here: http://noisey.vice.com/blog/sourvein-aquatic-occult-album

Aquatic Occult is produced by Mike Dean and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Yob). Pre-orders for Aquatic Occult are available now in CD, vinyl, and digital formats via metalblade.com/sourvein
