Full Album Stream: Cormorant: Dwellings – new album


Careful not to have harmed any record labels, American blackened progressive metallers CORMORANT just self-released their second full-length, “100% self-funded labor of love”,  December 6th, 2011. Listen to ‘Dwellings’ here (BandCamp) or via that cute player I’m slowly growing accustomed to and which can be found below. ‘Dwellings’ is available for physical purchase directly from the band here: the 6-panel digipak CD features hand-drawn vertical panorama cover artwork by Alice Duke, full-color on-disk design, and a 12-page booklet containing extensive lyrics and liner notes. The music was tracked live to analog tape by producer Justin Weis at Trakworx Studios in San Francisco:

Formed in Bay Area in 2007 by vocalist and bassist Arthur von Nagel (who grew up on folk rock and classical music) guitarist Nick Cohon (who played acoustic as a member of old-time country band THE YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKERS), percussionist Brennan Kunkel (who spends his free time making hip-hop beats) and guitarist and vocalist Matt Solis (who was recruited by the other three at an ENSLAVED gig), CORMORANT released their debut EP, an exploration of the black, death, thrash, doom, and folk metal sub-genres, ‘The Last Tree’, in 2007 to overwhelmingly positive reviews. Listen to ‘The Last Tree’ here (BandCamp) or below. Make sure to purchase:
