Official press release:
For the better part of two decades, Leviathan has been at the forefront of American black metal with a constantly evolving approach but an unwavering dedication to a core of sheer negativity and darkness. Over the course of several full-lengths, sole member Wrest has continued to push boundaries within the genre but few were prepared for 2015’s Scar Sighted, possibly Wrest’s finest moment in a consistently challenging and surprising musical career.
Spread across ten tracks, Scar Sighted incorporates elements of harsh death metal into Leviathan’s already layered approach. This crawling monster of a record shows more focus and a deeper negative intent than any previous of Wrest’s musical children, showcasing possibly his strongest rhythmic approach and his finest vocal performance. Now Devout, the label manifestation of Wrest and partner Stevie Floyd, will be putting this terror to wax in a deluxe vinyl version worthy of the music it contains.
Set for release November 11th, 2015, the stunning Scar Sighted limited edition vinyl/art box finds the offering on double white vinyl within thick, white printed chip board sleeves, eleven double-sided, framable, 12″ x 12″ traditional off set press, lithograph art prints and lyrics on heavy weight 100lb textured felt, cover stock paper all housed within a white linen-wrapped thick chip board box with a die cut crescent moon & black foiled leviathan logo on the lid, all hand numbered.
This extensive music and art box set collection is how Wrest intended for this to be released: For each song to be accompanied by a high quality art print of the painting. This is not a modern laser printed booklet.
All orders include unlimited streaming of Scar Sighted via the free BandCamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. For preorder bundles point your browser to THIS LOCATION. Packages ship on or around November 11th, 2015.
