Vancouver death metal outfit Auroch have released the first single to their forthcoming album, Mute Books. “He Wreaths the Cross” is a chaotic three minutes that shows Auroch have no intention of slowing down on their third album.
Auroch was handpicked by Decibel to be the regional openers for the Vancouver, British Columbia date of the 2015 Decibel Tour with At the Gates, Converge, Pallbearer and Vallenfyre.
Give “He Wreaths the Cross” a listen above. Mute Books is due out on Profound Lore October 21.
Guitarist/vocalist Sebastian Montesi had this to say about the new song: “‘He Wreaths The Cross’ is the second part of the initial movement of Mute Books, titled Trefoil Is The Grail Of Perdition. The first three songs comprise this movement, and borrow from each other thematically and musically. It has quickly become Zack’s (drums) favourite song to play live. One listen should indicate why.”
