Official press release:
Austin, TX metal band Eagle Claw will release its sophomore album Timing of the Void on October 30 via ECH Records. The follow up to the group's 2010 debut Poacher, Timing of the Void was recorded at Folkvang Studios and produced by Bryan Richie of fellow ATX metalheads The Sword. Featuring eight monolithic tracks of the quartet's fist-raising "InstruMetal", the record's title and overarching theme is based on The Book of Five Rings, a text on kenjutsu and the martial arts written by Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi circa 1645. In a recent news item published on Eagle Claw, the Austin Chronicle wrote, "Like Musashi, the local quartet's instrumentals are dually Zen and violent, and their timing and attack is martial. Not just a titular reference, the swordsman's lessons are the basis for the music on Timing of the Void."
"We are so proud of this album!" said Eagle Claw guitarist Matt Rade. "Everything about it turned out better than we expected (and we already knew it was gonna kick ass). Bryan Richie really helped bring this album together and captured our live spontaneity in the studio. We put the focus on getting to the point quicker, which has given us and the songs more energy than ever before."
