Having just wrapped up a U.S. trek with UnKured, Midwest atmospheric metal outfit Lysura is now out with a new release simply titled "II."
Featuring 18 minutes of haunting black metal (True Detective fans keep an ear out for the voiceover at the beginning...), we are proud to premiere all of "II" today, which can be heard in the player below.
Formed by ex-Acheron guitarist Max Othworth, the band originally premiered in 2012 with the release of the EP "Malignancy". With "II" the band keeps to its Dissection/Unanimated-esque roots while bringing in different elements in the vein of Akercocke along with lush atmospheres similar to Evoken and Asva.
You can hear more from the band at Facebook here, and Lysura consists of:
Max Otworth - Guitars/Vocals
Sam Jackson - Bass
Jordan Smith - Guitars

Those new to the band can expect a mesmerizing live performance that will leave spectators locked in stimulatory equilibrium.
