The Passenger, the debut full-length release from Vancouver, British Columbia-based progressive death metal outfit NECK OF THE WOODS is out now through Basick Records. The crushing record was issued in mid-September as the band stormed across Canada on tour in support of the album.
NECK OF THE WOODS' slick but brutalizing blend of progressive, groove-laden, technical death metal is delivered through nine crushing tracks on The Passenger, drawing comparisons to the likes of Misery Signals, Opeth, Darkest Hour, Between The Buried And Me, Gojira, and more. The album was recorded at Rain City Recorders by Stu McKillop, produced by Stu McKillop and NECK OF THE WOODS.
NECK OF THE WOODS is currently working on several new visual accompaniments to the album including playthrough videos and more, which will be issued over the weeks ahead. The band will continue to announce regional live performances throughout the next several months, with plans of touring heavily and internationally throughout 2018.
