Lycus Streaming New Single "Coma Burn"

As "Tempest," the debut LP from Bay Area funeral doom unit Lycus nears release this July 9th via Washington-based 20 Buck Spin, today the first single from the release is available. Check out "Coma Burn" via Pitchfork.com here. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"Having existed since 2008 in some form or another, Lyrucsentered hometown Earhammer Studios with Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Asunder, Pallbearer, Vastum, Samothrace, High On Fire), who captured and mixed the band’s immense Tempest LP. A mature, diverse and utterly monumental album, the three massive hymns on Tempest range between nine-and-a-half minutes to over twenty.

"The canvas of this masterwork is classic funeral doom in the territory of Mournful Congregation, Asunder and My Dying Bride, yet the template is varied as Lycus' palette includes shades of hysteric black metal, old-school death doom pummeling, and even a bit of pull from noise/drone realms. Featuring an incredible oil painting by the Italian madman Paolo Girardi as cover art and a regal layout by Kevin Gan Yuen of Sutekh Hexen (who also contributes musically to the album’s closing moments), Tempest is the most promising debut of 2013 in the doom genre.

"Lycus is planning U.S. Summer tour actions across the West Coast with dates to be announced shortly, and will traverse the continent to wash away the East Coast in the Autumn months."

The "Tempest" track listing is:

1. Coma Burn
2. Engravings
3. Tempest
