New Brunswick innovative noise/grind trio Anthesis are set to release their new album, titled The Age of Self, this June. The LP follows several EP and split releases, and marks their first full-length in over seven years, since 2010’s Surface and the Sky.
In anticipation of the new release, the band are offering up a taste of the album right here on Svbterranean, with the punishing track “Empty Vessels.” The song comprises nearly four minutes of abrasive sludgy noise, featuring doom-laden rhythms and dissonant angular guitars, combined in an unorthodox structure and layered with harsh vocals and an overwhelmingly bleak atmosphere. Check it out after the break.
The Age of Self was recorded, mixed and mastered throughout 2016 by guitarist and recording engineer Scott Miller at his studio in Quispamsis, New Brunswick. The album features 11 tracks, which are set to be the band’s most ferocious and focused material to date.
