Official press release:
Prophecy Productions has signed prolific experimental harsh noise/black metal crossover superstar, Crowhurst. A project headed by Jay Gambit, Crowhurst stands as a testament to his ability to weave ethereal, engaging soundscapes without falling into the trap which befalls so many prolific artists – predictability. Over 75 releases, and each album remains a dynamic, disorienting exploration unlike the last.
Beginning as a strictly experimental project, Crowhurst grew to encompass various collaborations with artists and producers such as Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker), who engineered & produced 2015’s I. The 2016 follow up, II was recorded in Manchester, England and produced at Machines With Magnets (The Body, Daughters). Crowhurst finalizes their trilogy with III, to be recorded with legendary producer & engineer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Full Of Hell) at GodCity Studios later this year, and will be Crowhurst’s Prophecy Productions debut. The effort features guest appearances from Tony Wakeford (Sol Invictus, Death In June), Ethan Lee McCarthy (Primitive Man), and Tara Vanflower (Lycia, Type O Negative) amongst a handful of other notables.
With notable appearances at SXSW, Northwest Terror Fest and Days of Darkness II, Crowhurst is pleased to announce an appearance at the upcoming inaugural edition of Prophecy Fest USA in Brooklyn, NY this November.
