GNAW THEIR TONGUES - Announces New Album, Track Available For Streaming

Just over a year since the Abyss Of Longing Throats full-length was released, Dutch experimental/black metal act Gnaw Their Tongues - the work of frontman and demon channeler Maurice "Mories" De Jong, also of Aderlating, Cloak Of Altering, De Magia Veterum, among others - has declared the December release of the band's latest LP, Hymns For The Broken, Swollen And Silent.
Hymns For The Broken, Swollen And Silent shows Gnaw Their Tongues at the top of its game. The band started out as a studio project, but has recently started performing live, and it feels like this carefully found its way into the music. Yet, "oppressive", "bleak", and "claustrophobic" remain the key words when describing the unique output of this drone/noise/black metal infused miscreant of De Jong. Fully performed and recorded by Mories at the Bejaarde II, Drachten, the artist also mixing and mastering the album, Hymns For The Broken, Swollen And Silent also features guest vocals on "Our Mouths Ridden With Worms" by Hekte Zaren.
Hymns For The Broken, Swollen And Silent will hit the streets on 9th December on LP through Consouling Sounds, the cassette by Tartarus Records, and the digital through the Gnaw Their Tounges Bandcamp. In the player below you can give a listen to the tormented opening track "Hold High The Banners Of Truth Among The Swollen Dead". Link
