This is some extremely rad news right here.
A press release announced today that Relapse Records signed Boise, Idaho’s mysterious occult duo Wolvserpent.
The group formed in 2010 and consists of Blake Green and Brittany McConnell playing a masterful mix of apocalyptic doom, avant-orchestral drone and blackened, sepulchral ambience.
It’s really quite awesome.
The duo will enter the studio to record their sophomore full-length entitled Perigaea, a four song 80 minute opus, this November with producer/engineer Mell Dettmer (Sunn 0))), Boris, Asva) in Seattle and in Idaho at in their home studio.
“We are very pleased to be working with Relapse Records on this upcoming album,” the band says. “We are excited to join forces and foster the potential of our best work to date.
“We don’t want to say much about the concept now. But we will say this: Perigaea is inspired by the four stages of existence and with that, the phases of humanity within the Earth and the greater Universe. Perigaea explores and reinforces our qualities and struggles as humans in this life. Our relationship with the Earth and our place as spiritual beings in what some believe is the final phase of this cycle.
“There are many names for it, one of those names is ‘Kali Yuga,’ the age of Kali, the dark age. The serpent that eats it’s own tail will once again devour itself and give to itself a new birth and a fresh start.”
