Locrian Finishes Recording New Album

The experimental, avant-drone artisans in Locrian have completed the recording of their latest full-length record and follow-up to 2013’s "Return to Annihilation."

The trio recorded the as-yet-untitled album earlier this month with producer Greg Norman at Electrical Audio (Pelican, Russian Circles), with an early 2015 release due via Relapse Records. Photos from the recording sessions can be viewed here.

The band is currently split between two cities, Baltimore and Chicago, forcing the project to collaborate on ideas via e-mail and phone conversations while sharing sound files over the web. Locrian comments on the forthcoming album:

"It will sound like a look back into the abyss. It is darker, more foreboding, epic and cinematic than anything in our catalog. There were a lot of things on our minds at the time. The impossibility of death in the minds of the living. Dark Shales. Aeromancy. The end of all things. The great dying. Attrition. In the Dust of this Planet. Absolute Indifference. The Beauty of Terror. Environmental issues. The dead and dying seas. The KXL pipeline. We were all reading Elizabeth Kolbert’s 'The Sixth Extinction,' and it became a touchstone for us, impacting the general feel of the record. This record will be a document, we hope you enjoy and relate to it. Thanks to all of you who listen and support.”
