Black Shape Of Nexus To Release New Album "Negative Black"

Hailing from the German city of Mannheim, sludge devastators Black Shape of Nexus, having recently signed with Exile On Mainstream, are preparing for the release of their upcoming third full-length "Negative Black." The following press release was issued about the album:

"Recorded in the Winter of 2011 and twisted into shape at the mighty Tonmeisterei Studio, Negative Black -- an album four years in the making -- marks a new step for Black Shape of Nexus, carving a path into their foreseeable future. The album has been eagerly awaited by BSON's diehard cult fanbase and underground doom/sludge aficionados since the release of their bruising 2008-released Microbarome Meetings 2xLP.

"While the outfit already bears the reputation for unfurling some of the most destructive but still coherently-flowing sludge metal available, incorporating outside elements of crust, black metal and ambient/soundscape persuasion at times, Negative Black surges to even deeper caverns of auditory obliteration, pummeling you with painfully slow doom and finishing you off with acrid, harsh drones, and giving down-tempo a whole new meaning."

Black Shape of Nexus will release the nearly eighty minute "Negative Black" in North America on June 5th, and it will be made available to fans on CD in a matte-varnished 6-panel digifile, a 2xLP format with inside/out printed gatefold cover, and deluxe digital download.
