Savannah, Georgia’s Vatican and Shenandoah Valley, VA’s Heavens Die have announced a string of spring U.S. tour dates. The trek will begin on April 12 in Charleston, South Carolina, and conclude on May 4 in Baltimore. Old Wounds and Vamachara will be providing support on select dates. Check out the full schedule below.
With roughly 18 minutes at their disposal, Georgia’s Vatican dish out blistering, rampaging metalcore on Ache of Eternity.
Lying at the sweet spot where early 2000s metalcore and metallic hardcore converge, Ache of Eternity delivers five tracks of flesh-ripping riffs, bashing grooves and breakdowns galore. Though the band have only been in existence since 2015, their push for sonic evolution and refinement is apparent within their handful of releases. Ache of Eternity sits at the apex of this evolution, offering something that is no doubt familiar, but also dynamic and destructive. If Trustkill and Ferret Music were still operating today, Vatican would be the type of band they would have bred.
Savannah, GA-based metallic hardcore band Vatican have premiered their new video for their track “Slit Of Creation” via New Noise. The anti-suicide song is off of their forthcoming five-track EP, titled Ache of Eternity, and the video depicts the mental battle of depression and suicidal thoughts. Check it out after the break.
Georgian metallic hardcore act Vatican have announced the release of a new EP. The forthcoming five-track effort will be titled Ache of Eternity and will be released on August 25 with Sorrow Carrier Records. Ache Of Eternity was recorded by Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business (Advent, Torch Runner, Red Death, Joy) in May of 2017, after which it was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Xibalba) and completed with artwork by Spencer Guerrero.
The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break along with the band’s upcoming touring schedule.
