Published Feb 19, 2013Baptists' Bushcraft has been in the works for quite some time, but the Vancouver doomsayers are finally ready to let loose their positively devastating full-length debut. The LP hits stores today (February 19) via Southern Lord, and you can hear the 11-song crusher in full now via Exclaim.ca.
As previously reported, the song cycle was tracked with Converge guitarist/producer Kurt Ballou at his GodCity Studio in Salem, MA. This was the second time the band attempted to record the tracks, and the final results are furious.
Just check "Think Tank Breed," a whip-crack thrash attack against the working world, or the demonic riff-slinging of "Bullets" for proof. Stick around for the band to stomp your skull straight into a boggy depot on gloomy metal-blues number "Soiled Roots," while you're at it.
Baptists toast their LP with a record release party at Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret on February 28. Tour dates are expected later this year.
You can also learn more about the record by reading Exclaim!'s newly published interview with the band here.
