Apocryphal Voice Releases Album Through Inverse

Originally self-released last year, Apocryphal Voice has now given an official label release for "Pain & Pleasure" today via Inverse Records. You can stream all the tracks below, and Inverse also comments:

"Stilltrapped" lies somewhere in the wide and hazy area between Burzum and Nick Cave."
