Preceding the self-titled Relapse debut from Portland, Oregon-based gloomy crust quintet NUX VOMICA, the massive album opening track is now streaming at Vice Magazine’s music channel, Noisey. Check out the opening track to Nux Vomica with Sanity Is For The Passive at Noisey here.
Relapse will issue the album on CD, LP and digital formats on March 28 in GAS, Benelux and Finland and on March 31 in the UK and rest of Europe; preorders are now available here. Regional and widespread NUX VOMICA tour actions will be announced in the coming weeks.
The first single from the album, Reeling, is also playing here.
Following their previously released LP’s – 2007’s A Civilized World and 2009’s Asleep in Ashes – among a plethora of splits and a 7″ release, NUX VOMICA’s first recording for the mighty Relapse and first full-length from the band in over five years was recorded throughout 2011-2012 at Haywire Studios. Blending the suffocating atmospherics of the doom/sludge with the raw ferocity of black metal, punk and d-beat, NUX VOMICA constructs an organic heaviness comparably hanging somewhere in the balance between Neurosis and His Hero Is Gone. Their self-titled delivers more than forty minutes of their torrid style through three massive works, creating an emotional odyssey into the depths of human darkness; a flawless combination of epic song structures with crushing melodies and colossal riffs with powerful dynamics.
Stated the band collectively on the upcoming release of Nux Vomica, “We are proud to release our new LP, Nux Vomica, on Relapse Records! It’s been a long time in the making, and is our third full length LP after a decade of being a band. We think it represents the pinnacle of our musical achievements so far; this is the best shit we’ve ever released and we are fucking stoked!”
