BLACK AWAKENING (ex-Goatwhore) Release New Track “Bones For Divination” & Announce New Bassist

BLACK AWAKENING Release Ritualistic Hymn “Bones For Divination” & Announce New Bassist

Sludge trio currently working on full-length debut


Indiana-based blackened sludge trio BLACK AWAKENING is pleased to present the official offering of the band’s latest single, “Bones For Divination,” which premiered last week via MetalSucks.

Listen and purchase “Bones For Divination” via Bandcamp here.

Recorded earlier this year at Devil’s Chord Studios, “Bones For Divination” is five-plus minutes of ritualistic sacrifice. MetalSucks called the single “an atmosphere-tinged blast of black metal mixed with molten, down-tempo sludge, at once sinfully evil and devestatingly depressing.”

Currently working on their debut full-length, BLACK AWAKENING was formed as a two-piece in the murky swamps of Louisiana before relocating to Fort Wayne, Indiana, eventually adding bassist Trevor Antonides to solidify the lineup. Featuring Tim Holsinger (ex-Goatwhore, ex-Suffer) and drummer Mandi Drunkenstein, the trio perform a visceral style of blackened sludge akin to many of the band’s southern contemporaries. After gaining a cult following after the release of a two-song demo and a 10″ EP entitled Intra nos Satanas, the Indiana trio of heathens is currently in production of their debut full-length. More information will be given when that time arrives.

If a voyage through crust-filled waters and snail-paced rhythms sound like your thing, dive into the cosmos and explore all that the macabre has to offer. Give your bones for divination, the black awakening awaits.
