Cough Hacks Up New Song "Athame"

As "Reflection Of The Negative," the split album between Richmond, Virginia outfits Cough and Windhand draws near, today another massive slab of doom metal from the record has been made public.

Pitchfork today unleashes the album-opening “Athame," and while it is the sole track from Coughto be found on the split album, the beast bears over eighteen-and-a-half-minutes of disastrous riffage. Check out the song at this location.

"Reflection Of The Negative" acts as a precursor for the upcoming full-lengths from both Cough and Windhand, both slated for release via Relapse later this year. The split will see release on April 16th in North America, preceded by international street dates of April 12th (Germany/Benelux) and April 15th (UK/World).

Cough will embark on a brutal month-long European tour in just over two weeks in conjunction with the split album’s release. The majority of the dates will see the band joined by Witch Mountain, while several later dates will instead be with Grime, the entire trek leading up to Heavy Days in Doomtown.
