MAESTUS - Debut Full-Length From Blackened Doom Collective Streaming In Full

Pacific Northwestern blackened doom collective, Maestus, recently unveiled the forlorn fruit of their debut full-length, Voir Dire. Comprised of Stephen Parker (Arkhum) and Jarrod Hyam (Sophos), with Kenneth Parker (Grst) and Cordell Cline (Dimensionless) recently enlisted to fulfill rhythm duties, Voir Dire was engineered and mixed during the summer months of 2014 at Parker's own The Wilderness Studio and delivers seventy-four minutes of heart-blistering grimness, concluding with a four-part epic, "Opaque Shadows In Framed Stillness", the duration of which makes up nearly half the record's length. Mastered by Agalloch's Jason Walton at Earth In Sound in October 2014, Voir Dire integrates black metal, doom and ambient, resulting in a caustic yet lush confessional. Comments the band: "Our residence in the often bleak Pacific Northwest helped shape the sound that reflects the band's name, a Latin word meaning 'sorrowful'. Voir Dire leads listeners down a path which forces one to address their own inner turmoil." You can test it in the Bandcamp player below. Link
