Erie, Pennsylvania-based doom/death industrial hybrid Abjection Ritual is preparing will release the third album "Soul Of Ruin, Body Of Filth" on April 6th via Malignant Records. The band premiered the first single "Body of Filth" over at Decibel at this location, or you can just check it out in the player at the bottom.
With "Soul Of Ruin, Body Of Filth," Abjection Ritual emerges as a far different beast than on prior recordings, now fully untethered by genre constraints and conventions. Like a hybrid of Enemy Of The Sun-era Neurosis, early Swans, Godflesh, IRM, and Khanate, mixed with the caustic doom sludge of Halo and Indian, "Soul Of Ruin, Body Of Filth" is a far more diverse and eclectic journey than the band's previous works.
"Soul Of Ruin, Body Of Filth" features guest appearances by Rennie Resmini (Starkweather) and author Christopher Ropes, as will be released on a six-panel digipak CD featuring artwork by Jef Whitehead (Leviathan). Studio samples and pre-order links will be issued shortly.
