Official press release:

Calgary-based post-black metal outfit Numenorean have unveiled new album details. The band are slated to release their debut full-length titled Home via Season of Mist worldwide on July 22. Citing influences from genre stalwarts Agalloch, Lifelover, Hypothermia, and Lantlos, Numenorean twist post black metal into a melancholic and oppressive sound they can call their own.

Regarding the album, Numenorean comment: "The album (Home) is an exploration and journey into some of the deepest human emotions we have. While it does offer hope and solace along the way, it ultimately never recovers."

Home was recorded by Numenorean vocalist/guitarist Byron Lemley and Alex Kurth in Calgary, and mix/mastered by Josh Schroeder at Random Awesome studios (Battlecross, King 810) in Michigan.

About the album, engineer Schroeder comments: "Numenorean's sound reminds me of a dark, distant memory of falling from a great height. I'm always looking to challenge the way I approach records, and no better way than to work with artists like Numenorean who are challenging the definition of black metal."

More news regarding Numenorean's debut full-length will become available in the coming weeks.
