Zero Tolerance on two LOD Tapes!

Pre-order Locrian "The Clearing/The Final Epoch" 2xCD at Relapse

Link here. 

Here's the press release: 

LOCRIAN:  The Clearing/The Final Epoch To See Release

Experimental, dark ambient / noise trio LOCRIAN are set to release their most recent recording (previously available only on vinyl) The Clearing as a 2CD/Digital deluxe album with a bonus disc re-titled as The Clearing/The Final Epoch via Relapse Records.  The second disc contains almost an hour of previously unreleased material containing the band’s signature sound of ominous crescendos mixed with powerful atmospherics and pulverizing tension.  This deluxe reissue, housed in a gorgeous mini “tip-on” gatefold package will see an August 14th release and is available for pre-order now at this location.  

LOCRIAN, located in Chicago, IL and Baltimore, MD has released over 20 recordings on an eclectic array of labels in their relatively short but prolific career, including a recent split with label-mates HORSEBACK.  Additionally, the group plan to enter the studio later this year for their full-length Relapse debut.  

    LOCRIAN is available for interviews upon request. To speak with the band, simply contact Updated LOCRIAN news / album information will be made available at the Relapse Records website: and the LOCRIAN Facebook page.

“Plenty of bands play music that sounds dark, but few can make every note bleed black and breathe smoke. Count Locrian as part of that select circle.” – Pitchfork

“Countless musicians have tried to imitate [Locrian’s] brand of dense, blackened experimentalism, but Locrian remains in a class all their own.” – OMG Vinyl

“They access the alienated moods and harsh outlook of metal’s blackest wings in distinct but complementary ways.” – MetalSucks

For Lee Jackson in Space: Out Now

Link here. There's an older unreleased Locrian jam on this. Lots of great artists on this. I believe that we recorded this during the same session that we recorded our remixes for Wilt and Formication. If my memory is correct, then this was shortly after we recorded Drenched Lands.
