The Sludgelord News: ABSTRACTER: Wound Empire LP Out Today; Band Added To Southwest Terror Fest And Deadfest

Oakland, California's ABSTRACTER proudly unveils the apocalyptic sounds of their second full-length album, Wound Empire, as it is officially now available worldwide on a variety of formats through a tight-knit web of underground labels and allies. Interjecting a wide array of decimating elements into their crust-toned sludge attack, WoundEmpire boasts ABSTRACTER's most demoralizing songs to date, its four massive movements consuming forty-two minutes of material recorded and mixed at Earhammer Studios by Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, Pallbearer, Noothgrush) and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Wolves In The Throne Room, Nails, Sunn O))), Sleep). The album is out today on 12" vinyl LP through Fragile Branch Recordings, Vendetta Records, 7 Degrees Records and Shove Records, on CD by COF Records, and on cassette tape co-released by An Out Recordings and ABSTRACTER's own Sentient Ruin Laboratories.

Wound Empire is streaming alongside orders for all digital and physical versions HERE, and internationally the LP can be ordered HERE and HERE.
