We’re proud to finally announce the release of Black Earth’s incredible debut LP A Cryptic Howl of Morbid Truth for the first time ever on vinyl. The limited edition black LP will be officially released on November 9 2018 in collaboration with cult extreme experimental Spanish label Bestiarie and is now pre-ordeable on our store and Bandcamp.
Spanish ritual black ambience/terror electronics sorcerers Black Earth originally released A Cryptic Howl of Morbid Truth in 2015 on tape through US underground tape label Graceless Recordings, long before Sentient Ruin issued their most recent second MLP Diagrams of a Hidden Order. Now this monstrous behemoth of sublime ritualistic aural cacophony finally assumes its ultimate form as a 12” LP of black vinyl housed in a single pocket jacket with printed inner sleeves. On a A Cryptic Howl of Morbid Truth Black Earth unravel over forty minutes of shapeshifting, ghastly, and colossal sound sculpting, constructing before the listener an hallucinatory and blood freezing chasm of slithering drones, spectral orchestrations and wretched electronics that ravage the senses. Weaving black metal, drone, dark ambient, harsh noise, and ritual atmospherics, with this monstrous debut album Black Earth have crossed thresholds unknown in ritual ambient invocations, laying the foundations for a new realm of sensorial sonic abuse and instantly proving themselves as being one of the most visionary and striking entities in modern dark metal and ritual ambience electronics.
Featuring a coalition of members both coming from the Spanish black/death underground, (specifically from bands like Suspiral and Sheidim) and from the Spanish noise/soundscaping and electronic ambient scene, Black Earth are perhaps the absolute leaders in Spain when it comes to metallic ambient noise electronics. Their backgrounds collide in black earth with the vigor and apocalyptic force of a collapsing star, birthing audial entities of a ghastly, inhuman, and otherworldly form. Deeply rooted both in ritual noise and in the most deformed and twisted strains of black metal, these Spanish audial terrorism shamans have unified the worlds of extreme metal and experimental electronics with unseen mastery and glorious perfectionism.
