Official press release:

Black Market Activities presents the self-titled debut album by Stomach Earth, the solo project of The Red Chord guitarist and founder Mike "Gunface" McKenzie, set for a July 16th release. Massive, creeping death-doom of the underworld, Stomach Earth summons the vast void of early Godflesh and the morbid grandeur of early Cathedral, creating a new futuristic sound that is transfixing and heavy as hell.

Like a single wave swallowing a city, Stomach Earth wields maximum power through minimum means. Glacial tempos and minimal programmed drums allow for a clarity that absolutely devastates. McKenzie, known across the globe as a technical metal shredder, chooses instead with Stomach Earth to do his killing slowly and methodically. The results are awe-inspiring. Monolithic and glistening with cinematic sheen, Stomach Earth demands to be cranked to 11.

Surrender to the hypnotic trance and headbang in slow-motion to Stomach Earth's "Watchers", here!

The sole mastermind behind Stomach Earth, McKenzie wrote all the album's music and lyrics, sang and played all the instruments. The self-recorded, self-mixed album was mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East.

The album's tracklist is as follows:

1. Void Angel Ritual
2. Watchers
3. Haunted by the Living
4. Prolong the Death Watch
5. The One They Fear
6. Reaching the Threshold
7. Claimed
