Profound Lore Records has issued the details for the impending third full-length album by Vancouver, British Columbia-based death metal faction, AUROCH. The most unfathomably devastating works to see release yet have been captured on the band's unrelenting Mute Books LP.
Enveloping shadow of dark death metal chaos looms with AUROCH's third full-length album, Mute Books, which will reveal itself as the band's darkest, most brutal, complex, and musically virulent release to date. Carrying the innovative Canadian death metal tradition laid down by the likes of early-'90s Gorguts, Cryptopsy and Kataklysm, and more recently through the likes of Mitochondrion and Chthe'ilist, the songwriting on Mute Books reaches a new plateau in technicality and over-the-top dynamics along with a new achievement in production and sound. Recorded at Raincity Recorders (Baptists, Japandroids, White Lung), Mute Books was mixed and mastered byArthur Rizk (Prurient, Inquisition, Pissgrave, Black Twilight Circle, Power Trip), AUROCH has cast their most ferocious undertaking yet; one of the darkest, most violent, whirlwind-like bizarre monuments of alchemic death metal of the year. Mute Books features expansive cover art by Cold Poison Design; each format of the album will feature the artwork in different aspects.
Profound Lore Records will release Mute Books on CD, LP, cassette, and digital formats on October 21st. A preview of the artwork, the track listing, and more have been issued, with audio samples and more to follow in the coming weeks.
