Well, I guess we picked a good day to talk about North Carolina’s Lorelei. Earlier today we included a skull-fucking new single from the band (“Masque”) in a round-up post — their third single since last year. And not long ago the band posted this welcome announcement on their Facebook page:
“We are excited to announce that our new track “Masque” was just a taste off of our debut FULL-LENGTH release titled Lore of Lies set to drop some time late 2013!
“The album will feature our two singles from last year “The Dunwich Horror” and “Godfather Death” completely re-tracked and re-mixed/mastered by Nick Scott, who handled all mixing/mastering in “Masque”, and four more full-length tracks with guest appearances from members of Conducting From The Grave, Ovid’s Withering, The Schoenberg Automaton, and Warforged!
“The album will be engineered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording NC (who has worked with Between the Buried and Me, Wretched, Scale the Summit, and more) and mixed/mastered by Nick Scott at The Foundation Recording Studio, who worked with The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, Miss May I, and more sweet bands!”
And one more thing that truly caught my eye: The band unveiled the album’s cover, by none other than one of our favorite metal artists, Ken Sarafin of Sarafin Concepts. Kick. Ass. Cover.
This is all welcome news.
Oh hell, might as well stream the three singles that have debuted so far — again:
This is solid stuff, looking forward to the release. The single hints at a bit of variety, so will be interesting to see what comes out on the album. It reminds me a lot of Slice the Cake from Aus (http://slicethecake.bandcamp.com/).
I clicked on “The Dunwich Horror” first because anything Lovecraft automatically gets a pass in my book. I was not disappointed. Kick ass stuff all around.
For some strange reason parts of it remind me of Strapping Young Lad.
Wait a minute.
“Debut full-length “Lore of Lies” coming late 2013!”
Aw damn it! I can’t wait that long!
