In the first week of this month, Embrace the Dawn released their debut album, The Effigist, and today we’re premiering a lyric video crafted by Scott Rudd for a turbocharged, mind-warping track from the album called “Putrefaction of God“.
The album is Embrace the Dawn’s second release overall, following their self-titled EP in 2015. Australian musician Ben Tinker remains the principal creative force behind the band, but for the debut album he enlisted the aid of a new line-up of performers who are scattered around the globe.
With Tinker as the composer, guitarist, and programmer, The Effigist features Canadian bassist Denis Landry, American drummer Kevin Talley (Feared, ex-Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Dååth, etc.), and Norwegian vocalist Roger Isaksen. In addition, the album was mixed by producer Eyal Levi (Levi/Werstler, Dååth).
