Sumac "Blight's Light Angel"
Published Jan 26, 2015Old Man Gloom mastermind Aaron Turner and Baptists drummer Nick Yacyshyn's Sumac project will reveal The Deal next week, but you can catch a skeleton- and psyche-shaking slab of gloom from the set right now via a stream of the oppressive yet atmospheric "Blight's Light Angel."
Turner takes control of the track early on with an echo-laden passage of haunted notes, but Yacyshyn comes in a couple minutes later with a steady thud. The two then proceed to bash things out via violent double kick work, gut-rumbling growls and discordant, damaged guitar lines.
The Deal lands February 3 through Profound Lore/SIGE Records. The band will also be out on a quick trip along the West Coast this March. You'll find both the song and the show info down below.
