Haunted Shores (Periphery) to release debut album in March, new song online
Official press release:
Haunted Shores, the death-metal tinged offering from Periphery's Mark Holcomb and Misha Mansoor, return with the pair's eagerly-awaited, debut full-length, Void (March 11, 3DOT Recordings).
A preview of the eight-song collection, a follow-up to the duo's 2015 Viscera EP, arrives with today's release of "Hellfire," a 4:20 minute, rapid fire track that not only further cements the guitar players' prowess but simultaneously showcases the new exploration the combo take under the Haunted Shores banner.
"We're proud to announce the upcoming release of our new record, Void," says Holcomb of the outfit he founded prior to his role in the Grammy-nominated Periphery. "Misha and I have wanted to do another Haunted Shores album for quite some time, and we finally made the time necessary to focus on these songs. I have always loved writing Haunted Shores songs, but this one in particular feels special – a little crazier, a little more unhinged, and in my opinion, a step above what we've done in the past. 'Hellfire' was the first song we demo'd for the record, and in many ways it sets the table for the record in its intent and spirit. I can't wait for people to hear the rest of it."
Void pre-orders/pre-saves are available now with the album available on limited-edition black and gold vinyl via the 3DOT webstore. Void was co-produced by Holcomb and Mansoor, with Mansoor also tackling mixing duties. Norwegian jazz-meets-metal musician Jørgen Munkeby (Shining) guests on "Nocturnal Hours." The album cover features a Paoli Girardi painting.
