Hear the Music Behind This Awesome Album Art
Posted by RiffRaff
This weeks full album stream goes out to Cormorant and their upcoming release Dwellings. Cormorant takes a mix of black metal, melodic death metal, and prog metal and combines it for a delightfully intoxicating cocktail. So far listening to this album(about half-way through at the time of writing) this album reminds me of early Opeth with cleaner production(especially in the composition and guitars). And for those that have listened to their 2009 release Metazoa, I can safely say that this is quite an improvement over an already excellent previous album(which is available for FREE(legaly 😉 ) here you can also contribute a few bucks too, hint hint hint).
While not yet released, this album is garnering lots of praise from journalists that have gotten themselves an early copy, and so far I may find myself joining in with that praise. This may be a late contender for a spot on the end of they year best of list(we’ll see how that goes after the second half of the album closes off for me). If anything, the artwork will be taking home a blue ribbon for Best Album Art. Dwellings will be available for purchase on Dec. 7, 2011, do yourself a favor and check this band out, especially if you are into prog metal and bands like Opeth. Click on the album art to go to the NPR sponsored official full album stream and enjoy. Let us know what you thought when you’re done listening. Peace Love and Metal!!!!
