The Skinny: Wisconsin’s ever-progressing Orwell will see a release of their 2011 EP AVOHFASIH which is an acronym for “A View of Heaven From A Seat In Hell”. Originally released themselves last September, the 40-plus minute, 6-song EP will be released through newly formed specialty vinyl label, Threshold of Pain Records, who are also re-releasing efforts from Seamless and planning several splits and releases spanning the heavy music spectrum.

AVOHFASIH, produced and engineered by Steve Henningsgard of Iron Thrones at Signaturetone Recordings in La Crosse, Wisconsin, explores a much heavier, more emotionally-driven direction. From doom and sludge and acoustic meddling, to head-on metal riffing and spiraling guitar solos, AVOHFASIH marks a true evolution in Orwell’s sound. Listen for yourself and grab a digital copy of AVOHFASIH at a name-your-price offering via their Bandcamp – listen below!

The vinyl release will see new and expanded artwork from guitarist Tim Bradley, with the record itself being on high quality 180-gram wax and limited to 250 pieces. Expect AVOHFASIH to drop on special edition vinyl Spring of 2013. Specific details are to be announced soon.

01. In Tides I Wake
02. In Crude I Remain
03. In Depths I Sink
04. From Depths I Rise

06. A New Awakening
(final LP version may vary)
