Sacramento doom quintet CHRCH have announced the release of their sophomore full-length album. The forthcoming record, which follows 2015’s Unanswered Hymns and this year’s split with Fister, will be titled Light Will Consume Us All and will be released sometime this spring via Neurot Recordings. An official street date and other information regarding the release is slated to be unveiled in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out the group’s previous full-length and split after the break.
Prior to 2010, my knowledge of black metal had been rather limited and had dabbled in enough of the genre to think I had heard all of what it had to offer: tremolo picking, blast beats, Satan stuff and the occasional atmospheric meddling (ex: Wolves in the Throne Room) that seemed to pique my interest more than the “evil” sounding stuff. But, hey, I was a teenager still getting my feet wet in the realms of heavy music, so please spare me oh elitist ones. I came to the hasty conclusion that black metal was a genre of metal that just couldn’t do much for me.
Then later that year, I discovered Deathspell Omega’s Paracletus and was introduced to a whole side of black metal, and heavy music in general, that I didn’t know existed.
