Berne, Switzerland, September 26, 2019: Elusive Sound is delighted to announce the repress of Glasir’s debut album “New Dark Age” on vinyl.
Mastered by Randy Cordner at Beast Mansion and featuring full artwork by renowned illustrator AlexCF “New Dark Age” is now repressed on 180g+ vinyl variant edition named Morning Decay, limited to 250 copies and never to be repressed.
Cut from 24-bit masters at 33RPM on special smoke with splatter vinyl, the edition features a 350gsm gatefold outer sleeve on reverse-board, dark red hot-foiled band name on gatefold front, flood black printing on the inside of the gatefold-sleeve, a 20x20cm sized artprint inlay with golden foil print on heavy weight black paper and an A7 inlay with golden foil print on heavy weight black paper with handwritten download code.
Recorded by Sam Striker at Native Darkness Productions, “New Dark Age” is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2015 EP “Unborn”, the very first Elusive Sound release. This incredible 3-piece from Dallas, Texas, have crafted a powerfully evocative album where their heavy siege cannon is unleashed and blasts us into a blackened world, where sound resonates in decayed city shells and life submerges in stagnant pools of death. We are one with the shadows hidden midst the smoke hung in a haze that ascends hollow towering walls of steel. It obscures a blood red sun we cannot see yet feel it’s oppressive heat searing down like the breath of hell. This is our tomorrow, a new dark age.
“Glasir does little to bait a larger audience with New Dark Age, but those dedicated to this brand of music should be enthralled by the push-and-pull of slow-burning, foreboding menace and hard-fought, scarred beauty waiting to be found within the dark passageways of their painstakingly rendered compositions”. – David Zeidler, Heavy Blog Is Heavy
“Some of the finest post-rock we’ve heard in a while which stands on the heavier end of the genre’s spectrum”. – Destroy//Exist
