Canadian post-rock/doom four-piece LOVIATAR (pronounced low-vye-ah-tar) have posted a lyric video taken from their self-titled debut full-length, out worldwide on July 28, 2017 via Prosthetic Records. The track, "Nascent", is the first of their three-part "Stygian Wyrm" opus.
The band's new self-titled album features two monolithic tracks: the aforementioned "Stygian Wyrm" (broken down into three parts for the digital release) and "Blind Goddess of the Nine Plagues". It will be available on all digital platforms, digipack CD and a limited edition gold and black swirl LP. Pre-orders are available here: http://smarturl.it/Loviatar
Formed in 2010, LOVIATAR have independently released a series of singles and EPs, and have been tapped to support such acts as Red Fang, Skeletonwitch and Blood Ceremony. LOVIATAR borrow equally from the hazy gloom of My Bloody Valentine and the crushing riffs of Isis. With clearly sung vocals and equal parts somber and soaring, their thunderous elements of doom and post-metal contrast with hypnotic moments of atmospheric introspection to set them apart from others in the genre.
