The Sludgeord News: POMBAGIRA SHARE A SURPRISING NEW TRACK FROM THEIR UPCOMING SIXTH ALBUM, FLESH THRONE PRESS, TO BE RELEASED VIA SVART RECORDS 23RD MARCH


    Pombagira reveal another new track, the swirling epic "Endless", taken from their upcoming sixth album, Flesh Throne Press, to be released on double CD, double LP and digital formats via Svart Records on 23rd March.

Noisey, who premiered the track last week, comment..."Endless" is chill incarnate; get lost in the endless groove and windswept wails, and let those fuzzy, distorted riffs knead the folds of your brain into putty."

LISTEN TO "ENDLESS"

   Musically, this album projects the band forward with a mind-expanding purpose for exposing the body to a varied compositional range. When it is heavy, it obliterates in an avalanche of riff making, and when in full tilt, it is only matched by the orchestral quality produced by tracking six amps and cabs for every guitar take.  

   More concise in its delivery than Maleficia Lamiah, the overall cerebral effect upon the listener is apocalyptic. It will not only rattle you to the very core of your being, but it also wills the listener to a plane where an inner meditative pose can be sustained. This is accomplished by way of the heaviest songs Pombagira have written to date, and by injecting stripped down undistorted constituents to the proceedings. Surfacing in standalone songs as well as being interspersed amongst those heavier tracts of progressive expansiveness, the band this time around present to the listener their most exact example of musical uniqueness. Coursing with the undulations of textural juxtaposition, Pombagira make firm their claim of being a truly original band without compare.

   Retentive themes regarding the dead and the necromantic discourse for conversing with ancestors both forgotten and the fallen is here enfleshed. In many ways this album solidifies a connection between the written word composed within Peter Hamilton-Giles’ soon to be published “Grimoire of the Baron Citadel” through Three Hands Press, and the ongoing ritual work to serve the forgotten and fallen. Flesh Throne Press actually refers to the visceral experience of the grave dirt which presses in on the flesh during the initiatory procedure. 

   Embodying both aspects of ingress and egress, this new album will present a more psych-o-delic side to Pombagira's music, as they find innovative ways to evolve their sound. In an attempt to bind the sorcerer to the spirit entourage that comes from taking every deviation, Flesh Throne Press explores the ‘nightside’ like no other.
