THE RESURRECTION SORROW are preparing to digitally release their newest EP, dubbed The Scorpion Savior Sessions. The band has been streaming the songs on their website for the last few months, and are now prepared to sell the release digitally as well.
The band recorded and the tracks for the new EP over this past Winter. Once again they enlisted hometown NYC engineer Joe Hogan (Nebula, The Atomic Bitchwax), who recorded TRS‘ 2009 debut album, Hour Of The Wolf, and had the tracks mastered by Fred Kevorkian (Iggy Pop, Willie Nelson). The soulful and explosive tracks on the EP show THE RESURRECTION SORROW progressing in both more dynamic and aggressive directions on their latest material, while solidly showcasing the soulful, doom-influenced metallic crunch the band are popular with their fans for delivering. The release also once again bears cover art by Seldon Hunt (Nachtmystium, Neurosis, Sunn O))), Isis, etc.), who was also responsible for the art on Hour Of The Wolf.
