Cursus Releasing Self-Titled Debut Album

Texan doom-duo Cursus will crush worlds on the band's colossal self-titled debut coming April 28th, 2017 via Artificial Head Records. Check out advance track "Waters Of Wrath" below.

Taken from the Latin word meaning “course” – specifically the mournful paths our ancestors once took to bury their dead – the San Antonio-based paring of guitarist/vocalist CJ Duron and drummer Sarah Roork first came into being in the winter of 2013.

The "Summer Solstice Sessions" demo quickly caught the ear of label boss and fellow Texan, Walter Carlos, who signed Cursus on the spot to his Houston-based label Artificial Head Records.

“I had toured with Cursus a few times over the years and I’ve always admired their massive sound. Their ability to crush bodies in the room with their songs is uncanny,” explains Carlos. “Initially, we were going to release a live cassette by the band from recordings they made while on tour. But as the project kept going, we decided that a full-length studio album would be better and we’re proud to have Cursus as part of our family.”

Three years on from the release of that demo, Duron and Roork have their debut album loaded. Produced in a basement-recording studio by close friend Chris Dillard, over the course of six devastating songs Cursus summons personal and spiritual pains and turns each into amplified dirges packed with riffs, hypnotic string arrangements and spellbinding percussion.
