German Black Metal / Hardcore Crossover ANCST never sleeps. With more than 15 releases, several smaller and bigger tours and appearances on festivals all over Europe under their belt, that band has long proven to be one of the most relentlessly working entities
coming out of Germany at the moment. With their new album “Ghosts of the timeless void” (Lifeforce Records) just a week away and a European headlining tour about to begin around the same time ANCST has decided that this cant be enough and has just dropped a new split release with longtime friends DEPRAVATION through their own label Yehonala Tapes and Black Omega Recordings.
DEPRAVATION from Gießen, Germany has been on the forefront of the German blackened hardcore scene for several years. While sporting a love for late 90s metallic hardcore DEPRAVATION is more about the grime and the hatred than their friends in ANCST and have made a name for themselves for their dark approach to the hardcore formula.
The split features two new songs from each band that bandhave been mastered for this vinyl release by Nikita Kamprad of Der Weg einer Freiheit.
In support of both their new releases, ANCST will be heading out for a lengthy European tour this march with the support of Doomstar Booking.
