Austere - Announce First Album Release In 14 Years

Austere are back with their first album announcement in 14 years. Entitled Corrosion Of Hearts, the Australian black metal duo will unleash the new offering on April 28th, 2023 via Prophecy Productions. For a preview, give a spin to the 12-minute-long opening trak "Sullen".

Statement from the band: "Sullen", being the first track written for Corrosion Of Hearts, has an interesting background. The main riff theme within the track was actually also the first track written for an album we started working on directly after To Lay Like Old Ashes was released, 13 years ago. For various reasons, that album never came to fruition yet the main riff, whilst slightly different at the time, survived. Whilst it carries a different feel to our previous work, It felt like a good starting point to pick up the pieces that were left behind so long ago when we decided to rebirth the band.

"Corrosion Of Hearts, as an album, feels like we had the opportunity to write additional melodies that wec didn’t have the time to do during the recording of our previous album. Allowing us to deliver a bigger soundscape carried by epic melodies within an atmospheric way. Now, being able to expand further and venture into new waters. ´Sullen´ is an important track for us as it was the catalyst for Austere reigniting the flames that essentially are burning within us."

Pretty good song, though maybe a bit too long. Really looking forward to this record.
