Portland doom quartet Usnea have released the track “Lathe of Heaven” from their third full-length album Portals Into Futility.
Usnea recently unveiled the full details of their second full-length LP (and Relapse Records debut), Random Cosmic Violence, a four-song sonic masterpiece that was recorded and mixed by Jared “Fester” See at Haywire Studios (Stoneburner, Rabbits, Drunk Dad) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Yob, High On Fire, Integrity). Recently we chatted with guitarist and vocalist Justin Cory who helped us to better understand how the band got their sludge-laden funeral doom sound on this new recording!
Usnea has unveiled the full details of their awaited second full-length LP, which now comes as their debut for Relapse Records, a four-song sonic masterpiece, entitled Random Cosmic Violence. Blending the sounds of the doom forefathers like Disembowelment and My Dying Bride with the gritty sludge of High On Fire, Usnea has created a classic of the new millennium. Recorded and mixed by Jared “Fester” See at Haywire Studios (Stoneburner, Rabbits, Drunk Dad) who supplies additional guitars to the title track, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Yob, High On Fire, Integrity), the artwork and design was handled by Justin Cory and Orion Landau.
