Feel the slow, ominous rattle of your insides with an exclusive track premiere of EPHEMEROS’ “All Hail Corrosion,” courtesy of Pitchfork. The penetrating death march comes off the Oregon funeral doom miscreants’ soon-to-be unveiled debut full-length of the same name. A morose, three-track gloom fest of ill-omened brutality, All Hail Corrosion was tracked and mixed by Fester (Atriarch, Stoneburner) at Haywire Studios, mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, From Ashes Rise, Nails) at Audiosiege Engineering and bestows its listeners with forty traumatic minutes of measured depressive harmonies, soul-crushing growls and haunting chants centered around the imminent decay of humanity.
Notes Pitchfork, “The quality of musicianship and devilish attention to detail is outstanding, and what’s more, thanks to a heavy appreciation for sludge, death metal, and more traditional doom, EPHEMEROS manage to breathe new life into funeral doom’s staid pacing. The result is crushing.”

Formed in 2010, EPHEMEROS features members of Nux Vomica, Graves At Sea, Elitist, and Bastard Feast. EPHEMEROS will appeal to the black-souled enthusiasts of Mournful Congregation, Loss, and Asunder.
All Hail Corrosion will be released on CD and digitally via Seventh Rule on August 20, 2013 and on vinyl by Parasitic Records. In the meantime, West Coast dismal souls can experience the band’s hymns of misery live later this week, with more dates moving Eastward in the Fall.
