Nocturnal Poisoning To Release New Album "Doomgrass"

Nocturnal Poisoning is the project of Scott Conner, who formerly was the creative force and sole member of black metal outfit Xasthur. Nocturnal Poisoning will release "Doomgrass" this coming August 19th, 2014 via The End Records, with pre-orders available here. The label also comments:

"In 2010 Scott dissolved Xasthur to move on to more challenging musical endeavors, namely Nocturnal Poisoning. Using bluegrass guitar playing and American folk music as a starting point, Nocturnal Poisoning weave dark, complicated songs that are dissonant and melancholic as well as melodious.

"Finger-picked guitars are layered upon each other with sparse percussion to create a hypnotizing atmosphere of desolation. The vocals are delivered by Robert Nesslin, in a evocative, bluesy, chant-like style, adding yet another layer of despair to the already purgatorial mixture of sound.

"While there is no black metal to be found on this record, Scott Conner's wholly unique song writing style developed throughout his tenure as Xasthur can clearly be heard in Nocturnal Poisoning. 'Doomgrass' is a distinctive, demanding, and all-together rewarding listening experience for those seeking something new."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Slowly Passing Through
2. Prisoners Of Their Own Needs
3. Doomgrass
4. Starstruck By Garbage
5. Bet It All
6. Source Of Survival
7. Fight For Another Life
8. Illusion Of Worth
9. Old Light
10. Closure In Reach
11. Vagrant, Seeker Of Empty Treasures
12. Can't Find The Sky
13. Running Out Of Highways
14. Question The Screen
