Official press release:

New York City's Black Anvil returns with As Was, the staggering fifty-minute follow-up to 2014's Hail Death. Atmospheric and melodic without relenting on any of the ferocity Black Anvil has always been known for, As Was seamlessly weaves through eight monumental passages of extreme metal art. More diverse, complex, and thought-provoking than anything they've released previously, As Was is a stellar representation of modern black metal, and of Black Anvil's continuous progression and songcraft.

As Was was recorded at Menegroth by Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts, Panopticon) with mixing and mastering done by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio (Tribulation, Funeral Mist, Watain), and features cover art by Metastazis (Behemoth, Watain, Morbid Angel).

January 13th, 2017 marks the worldwide release of As Was via Relapse Records on CD, 2xLP, and digital formats. Stream the band's new song "May Her Wrath Be Just" via YouTube below.

As Was track listing:

1. On Forgotten Ways
2. May Her Wrath Be Just
3. As Was
4. Nothing
5. As An Elder Learned Anew
6. Two Keys-Heres The Lock
7. The Way Of All Flesh
8. Ultra
