Official press release:
Occult black metal practitioners One Master will unsheathe their traumatic Lycanthropic Burrowing full-length next month via Eternal Death Records.
For the past fifteen years, One Master has been conjuring raw and aggressive black metal in the dark corners of the US underground. Following up their acclaimed Reclusive Blasphemy offering, which ranked among the best metal records of 2015 by Loudwire, Metal Sucks, and Metal Insider, their newest full-length Lycanthropic Burrowing delivers thirty-five minutes of cursed and dismal fury. From the militaristic oppression of “Will Of The Shadow” to the haunting ritualism of the closing title track, Lycanthropic Burrowing is an audio document of a band ascending towards the elite tier of US black metal occupied by bands such as Nightbringer and Leviathan.
Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air Studios, and accompanied by artwork from Dave Fogg of Fog Palace, Lycanthropic Burrowing is an expertly produced record that is sure to be one of the most highly rated underground black metal releases of 2017.
Lycanthropic Burrowing will see release on July 14th on CD, digital, and limited vinyl formats via Eternal Death. Pre-orders are currently available at the official Eternal Death Bandcamp page where you can also sample “Will Of The Shadow”:
