Shaman Recordings has issued the following announcement about Black Magician streaming a new song online:
"With a name like Black Magician you sure as Hell ain’t going to be getting glam rock or emo! No sir, these Liverpudlian retrogressive throwbacks are about to drop their debut album, ‘Nature Is the Devil’s Church’…5 tracks of expansive, ritualistic, soul stealing doom of the highest order in a little over 40 minutes. Huge, monolithic riffs entwine with swirling Hammond organ around unique throat burning vocals combine to create a sound that has been described by the living legend that is Doomlord as 'Atomic Rooster playing early Cathedral,' nuff said!
"And now, The Sleeping Shaman is thrilled to be streaming the 2nd track from the album ‘Full Plain I See, The Devil Knows How To Row,’ enter the world of fear and despair at this location.
"Shaman Recordings will be releasing just 300 copies of ‘Nature Is The Devil’s Church’ on appropriately sacrificial blood red vinyl that also comes with a digital download card, and for those of you who prefer things a little more compact, Burning World Records will be handling the CD version with a planned release date of September 2012."
