Cormorant Releases First Song From New Album "Diaspora"

Slated to drop this August, "Diaspora" is the imminent new full-length album from progressive blackened death collective Cormorant. In advance of its release, today first single and opening track "Preserved In Ash" is offered up for public feasting.

Recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson (Vastum, Graves At Sea, Noothgrush, Brainoil) at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California, the expansive four-track, sixty-one-minute offering features the band's longest, most detail-oriented compositions to date.

"'Preserved In Ash' is the last song we wrote for the album," elaborates guitarist/vocalist Matt Solis, "but as it was coming together it became clear that it fit perfectly as a lead-off track. Lyrically, it's about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, which buried the city of Pompeii in volcanic ash. There's a lot of psychedelic black metal and funeral doom stuff going on in this song, and Greg Wilkinson's crushing production allowed us to establish a good balance between those two tonalities."
