Taken By The Sun Lights The "Fuse"

With the release of a self-titled full-length now less than a week away, today the warlords at Cvlt Nation offer up a taste of "Fuse" from Chicago progressive post-metal doom enthusiasts, Taken By The Sun. Give it a listen below.

Tracked almost entirely live at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio Studio, engineered by Sanford Parker (Twilight, Voivod, Eyehategod, Yob etc.) and mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) at The Boiler Room, all in Chicago, "Taken By The Sun" is an eight-track, forty-two minute audio expedition that recalls the confounding atmospheres of veteran sound contortionists Neurosis, Isis, Pelican, Rosetta, Mouth Of the Architect, Red Sparowes, and The Ocean.

Comments the band of this newly released song: "In contrast to our prior pre-release track ['Ornaflux'] which showcased our capability for frenetic, atonal prog showmanship, 'Fuse' is a sprawling display of drama and melody. At once crushing and serene, the song shifts from soundscape to soundscape while held together by a few key themes and tones."

The previous song "Ornaflux" can be hear over at this location, and you can see the band live:
