Shakhtyor Announces North American Release For Self-Titled Album

Germany's Shakhtyor released a self-titled debut through Cyclone Empire Records in Europe, and has now confirmed August 20th as the release date for the album in North America via Metal Blade Records. Fans can listen to the opening track from the album, "E. Jasper" below. Metal Blade also comments on the band:

"Shakhtyor, the Russian miner, arises from the depths with pounding drums, massive bass and walls of guitars. Since 2009, these three guys from Hamburg have been working on their blend of doom, sludge, post metal and stoner rock. Beginning in 2011, they've regularly hit the stages to preview what was to come with their first full-length album, which was finally released in April 2012.

"Backed by positive feedback from various well known blogs, and with new songs up their sleeves, they began playing the clubs across Germany, broadening their fan base among fans of Neurosis, Omega Massif, Ufomammut or Entombed with every show."
