Bloody Panda Completes Work On New Album

New York avant-doom metal enigma BLOODY PANDA have completed work on their sophomore opus, “Summon." The follow up to the acclaimed “Pheromone” release, “Summon” sees the nightmare Bloody Panda initially conceived (with their split LP with experimentalists Kayo Dot) taken further into the depths. “Summon” will officially be released on August 11th.

Fronted by Japanese siren Yoshiko Ohara (also an accomplished visual artist), it is through her rapturous vocal delivery that compliments the monolithic ritualistic dirge-like rhythm section that helps this beast take its form. Ohara is also responsible for the striking artwork that graces “Summon’s” canvas.

The tracklisting for “Summon” goes as follows:

1. Gold
2. Pusher
3. Saccades I
4. Saccades II
5. Miserere
6. Grey
7. Hashira

“Summon” will be presented as a two-disc, CD/DVD release, the DVD being an abstract visual interpretation of the 20-plus minute track “Miserere.” Filmed in various parts of Brooklyn, along with footage captured at Jaliluhur Dam, Indonesia, this visual interpretation is a very dark and mysterious offering featuring renowned butoh dancer Yuko Kaseki.

Bloody Panda is also planning on touring and playing shows to coincide with the release.
