In the boundless quest to distinguish one’s band from metal’s ever-growing pack, comes another new sub-genre, given birth by Vancouver’s Auroch. Referring to themselves as “Lovecraftian death metal,” the trio is set to release their debut full-length From Forgotten Worlds via Poland’s Hellthrasher Productions. The band’s debut, which follows a spate of five demos that date back to 2008, was actually self-released earlier this year before being snatched up by the Polish label and contains eight songs of the aforementioned Lovecraftian metal. We’ve provided you with a couple of tracks from the album below with the hopes that you’ll give the tunes a whirl, crack your heads open and tell us, “Just what is Lovecraftian death metal?”
