DRUID LORD - Announce Their Second Album

Doom/death metallers Druid Lord have announced their second album, Grotesque Offerings, will be the first released via Hells Headbangers as a CD, on vinyl and as a cassette. Grotesque Offerings is a consolidation and intensification of Druid Lord's ever-considerable strengths. Eerie and utterly crushing doom/deathmetal, Druid Lord soak their molten creations in obscure, horror-inspired lyrics from beyond the grave. Across the 50 mysterious minutes comprising Grotesque Offerings, they evoke the haunts of old from where shadows conjure spells of gloom. Druid Lord are grounded in the darkest and most underground death metal, of course, but take considerable influence from old horror films, particularly the atmosphere cloaking the classic movies of Lucio Fulci, Mario Bava, Dario Argento, and John Carpenter. It's a deceptively simple formula, but one that's done with masterful subtlety and a graven sense of purpose: simply, they live, breathing deeply the true, timeless essence of supernatural horror. And that stark simplicity - the leads that linger like fog, the gutted low-end, the stunning sense of dread-inducing melody - is absolutely bewitching within these Grotesque OfferingsDruid Lord released their debut album, Hymns For The Wicked, in 2010. Second guitarist Ben Ross joined the band right after its release; his sick riffing added to the Druid Lord style. Since then, the band has put out countless split CDs and 7" EPs, which have gained them worldwide attention. Release date and preorder info to be announced shortly. In the meantime, the new track "House of Dripping Gore" can be heard below. Link
