Official press release:
New York City-based Geryon is finalizing the outfit’s new album, The Wound And The Bow, which will see release in early April under the banner of Profound Lore Records.
Geryon is a two-man NY-based avant-garde technical prog-death metal band comprised of one half of Krallice, namely bassist/vocalist Nicholas McMaster and drummer Lev Weinstein. Solely through bass guitar, drums, and vocals, through this band the members conjure a singular vision through complex layers and meticulously crafted tones where dissonance and melody maintain that equilibrium though the band’s chaotic sound, taking from the blueprint through the duo’s experience in Krallice, as well as Astomatous, the Chicago-based death metal band McMaster and Weinstein had prior to Krallice.
Following their self-titled independent album in 2013, Geryon now presents their sophomore full-length recording, The Wound And The Bow. While seemingly stripped down to the bare minimum without any electric guitars in the mix whatsoever, utilizing lyrics written by McMaster’s sister, Antonia, the sounds that pour forth from The Wound And The Bow present an enveloping and overwhelming sound picture; a bizarre, strange yet unforgettable and twisted sonic journey to behold. The Wound And The Bow was produced at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves in New York City by Colin Marston, who also performs in Krallice in addition to Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, and more, the record also featuring guest electronic music contributions from the likes of Jim Mroz (Lussuria), Nick Podgurski (New Firmament, Feast of the Epiphany), and Chris Latina (Private Archive, Article Collection), as well as Marston.
Profound Lore Records will release The Wound And The Bow on April 8th, 2016. The track listing and the cover artwork created by Nicholas McMaster have been released, with a plethora of additional updates, audio samples and further insight into the record to be leaked in the weeks ahead.
