Pitchfork has just premiered a brand new song from Boise doom duo Wolvserpent's upcoming Relapse debut, "Perigaea Antahkarana." Listen to "In Mirrors of Water" at this location.
"With layers of strings and fistfuls of patience, 'In Mirrors of Water,' the 22-minute centerpiece of the forthcoming Perigaea Antahkarana, builds from the saturated hum of Mono to the bleak evisceration of Mayhem," Pitchfork notes. "Even when Wolvserpent sounds plainly pretty, a hint of danger lurks steadfast in the background, foreshadowing the tumult that inevitably arrives."
The four song, 80-minute album will be released on September 17th, 2013 on 2CD, digital, and 2XLP formats. The band has unveiled an album preview video, available below.

Relapse Records is closing out 2012 with a special podcast curated by J.R. Hayes of Pig Destroyer. Mr. Hayes has picked 20 of his favorite tracks from the Relapse catalog in addition to answering an in-depth interview about the band's new album "Book Burner."

Pig Destroyer released fifth studio album "Book Burner" (reviewed here) this past October on Relapse Records.
The deluxe editions each contain a bonus disc of punk covers and a short story, titled The Atheist, penned by frontman JR Hayes. The Atheist is a post-apocalyptic tale about a decaying world taken over by the violence of religion that showcases the renowned lyricists' unsurpassed style for the first time as prose. The deluxe 2xLP also contains an etched b-side featuring artwork by Wormrot frontman Arif Rot.
The full "Book Burner" album can be heard in its entirety on Pig Destroyer's Bandcamp page here.
Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the signing of Boise, Idaho’s mysterious occult duo Wolvserpent. The label comments:
"Formed in 2010, Wolvserpent consist of Blake Green (guitar, vocals, keys) and Brittany McConnell (drums, percussion, violin) playing a masterful mix of apocalyptic doom, avant-orchestral drone and blackened, sepulchral ambiance. 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, EARTH) in Seattle and in Idaho at in their home studio.
"After a two year writing period, Wolvsperent first recorded the Perigaea 2012 demo (pronounced 'pear-a-guy-a') in Dec '11-January 2012. Choosing initially not to release it....but to hold onto it for another 9 months and re-write it, they are now offering it as a free stream at Bandcamp and download via their official site here. The upcoming full-length version of Perigaea will be an entirely different manifestation of the ideas heard on the demo."
Wolvserpent also commented on the recent signing and new material:
"We are very pleased to be working with Relapse Records on this upcoming album. We are excited to join forces and foster the potential of our best work to date. More...
