American black metal cult Shataan have premiered the new track “Stand Apart”. The track comes from the group’s highly anticipated debut album, Weigh of the Wolf, set for international vinyl release on June 27th via Iron Bonehead Productions.
Shataan belong to the Black Twilght Circle, one of the most important developments in American black metal since the dawn of the ’90s. This elite cadre of bands orbit around the Crepúsculo Negro label – who will release Weigh of the Wolf on cassette this year – and include the potent likes of Volahn, Kallathon, Arizmenda, Dolorvortre, Tukaaria, Kuxan Suum, Blue Hummingbird on the Left, Axeman, Muknal, and The Haunting Presence among many others. The Black Twilight Circle’s vision is an intensely personal and challenging one, and these myriad bands individually and collectively expand this vision whilst keeping it closely guarded, their incestuous nature a matter of aesthetics rather than necessity.
Shataan’s Weigh of the Wolf will be released in North America on CD and LP by Indifferent Nightmare, the label of vocalist/guitarist Shataan.
