Incomparable music portal Pitchfork has just premiered a brand-new song from Boise doom duo Wolvserpent‘s upcoming Relapse debut, Perigaea Antahkarana, praising the high drama and solemnity found over the course of “In Mirrors of Water.”
Listen to it here!
“With layers of strings and fistfuls of patience, “In Mirrors of Water,” the 22-minute centerpiece of the forthcoming Perigaea Antahkarana, builds from the saturated hum of Mono to the bleak evisceration of Mayhem,” Pitchfork notes. “Even when Wolvserpent sounds plainly pretty, a hint of danger lurks steadfast in the background, foreshadowing the tumult that inevitably arrives.”
The four song, 80-minute album will be released on September 17th, 2013 on 2CD, digital, and gorgeous 2XLP formats. The band has unveiled a beautifully rendered album preview video, available at this location. (See the track list and read more about the release here.)
Wolvserpent have also just announced a string of lives dates that will take them from their mountainous hometown down the West Coast to Los Angeles, then wrap up with a San Francisco gig with Sutekh Hexen. Along the way, they’ll share stages with Taurus, Ides of Gemini, Helen Money, A Story of Rats, and more! (See all the tour dates here.)
