ALEYNMORD - Announces Release Date Of Debut Album, New Video Released

Portland (USA) based duo Aleynmord, who recently signed a record deal with one of the most significant labels dealing with post black/dark metal, AOP Records, have announced that the international release date for their debut album, The Blinding Light, will be 28th of August. In lieu of this news, a brand-new video for the track "Wounded Monolith" has been revealed and you can watch it in the player below.

One of the most powerful things about the landscape of Oregon is the Columbia Gorge: enveloped on both sides by two major mountains, barred from each other by a mighty river and a vast expanse of virtually overgrown wilderness. Finding solace from this landscape away from the metropolitan world, Aleynmord set out to explain the many different feelings one can experience in a self-imposed isolation.

With a range of vocals from a shrill cry, yells, cleans, and even Americana-esque whistles enshrouded by a fog of thick guitars and a walking bass, The Blinding Light is a concise collection of tracks which convey this powerful emotion that can only be attempted to describe. Across its four-song/36-minute runtime, peaks of concentrated musicianship are then cut apart by various valleys of acoustic works resembling Death in June nostalgia and forest worship, culminating in a crescendo of domineering solos. The duo of Aleynmord know no boundaries in their enigmatic expression.
 
A contrast of pain and beauty, Aleynmord makes use of every way to describe the emotional poetry of isolation in the wilderness. What results is a plaintive, poignant journey ably bearing the title The Blinding Light, and beautifully adorned with cover art courtesy of the esteemed Jef Whitehead (Leviathan, Lurker Of Chalice).
