Massive post metal hybrids LLNN and WOVOKA will release the audio punishment of their Marks/Traces split release this June via Pelagic Records. Copenhagen-based LLNN released their crushing debut, Loss, last year via Pelagic. Terrorizer crowned it, “a bleak soundtrack to a cinematic, post-apocalyptic landscape,” which couldn’t be more accurate. Indeed, the massively heavy, tightly-woven sonic fabric that these four young Danes create has been critically acclaimed throughout the European press landscape.
“WOVOKA‘s musical volleys are both panoramically expansive and crushingly claustrophobic,” wrote LA Weekly in trying to describe the audio manifestations of these four dark souls from the West Coast. Emerging from a near two-year slumber since their critically-lauded Saros debut, WOVOKA are contributing one single eighteen-minute opus to the album, picking up right where LLNN leaves off.
LLNN‘s and WOVOK‘s Marks/Traces split will see release June 16th via Pelagic Records on CD, LP, and digital formats. Belgian artist Ammo was commissioned to create the stunning artwork, which perfectly reflects the music comprising this release. The vinyl edition comes with a hand-numbered, five-color screen-print. The limited edition comes on brass and black wax, which looks like an impact crater. Fans of Cult Of Luna, Neurosis, Amen Ra, Rosetta, and ISIS pay heed.
