The Skinny: Avant-garde death metal unit Azure Emote – envisioned and created by Mike Hrubovcak (Monstrosity, Vile, Divine Rapture, Abraxas) and executed utilizing musicians from Death, Fear Factory, Monstrosity, Tristania, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder and more – today announces the completion of their second studio album The Gravity Of Impermanence. View the cover art as well as stream the epic closing track to the album “Puppet Deities” below.

Confirmed for worldwide release through Selfmadegod Records on April 3rd, The Gravity Of Impermanence is fueled by pummeling blast beats, haunting female vocals, violins, saxophone, harmonica and a barrage of other eclectic surprises brought together into one melting pot of misanthropic darkness that defines the Azure Emote ethos. Possessing fourteen songs encompassing over an hour of devastatingly original extreme metal the album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Ron Vento of Aurora Borealis at Nightsky Studios. The cover art was once again done by Azure Emote’s creator and frontman Mike Hrubovcak, his Visual Darkness works well-known in the death/grind communities for illustrating covers for Sinister, Grave, Cattle Decapitation, Hate Eternal, Decrepit Birth, Mortician, and many others.
