Official press release:
New York City's Black Anvil
has shared a full stream of the As Was
full-length prior to release this Friday. Listen to over 50 minutes of thought-provoking, modern black metal, alongside an exclusive interview with Paul Delaney, via Noisey at this location
"I wanted it to have something to do with what comes after death," said vocalist/bassist Paul Delany about the album title meaning. "Raeph [drums] just busted it out: As Was. And I was like, "Sold." It made a lot of sense to me. Even though it sounds bigger than anything we've ever done, it sounds more organic and primal. It's a return to primordial chaos. So it's a very different approach and mindset and yet also a continuation of the last record."
