OPIUM LORD - The Calendrical Cycle... / VINYL LP (Translucent Ice Blue vinyl)


Distributed Release

Dry Cough Recs. (UK import).
Limited edition of 300 copies worldwide on translucent icy blue vinyl.
Vinyl version of this album originally released through Candlelight Records.

Following a hugely well received (and long sold out) 7" on Witch Hunter Records and Speedowax Records, the Birmingham quintet finally released their much anticipated debut album on CD via UK extreme metal behemoth, Candlelight Records in February this year. Dry Cough now has the honour of issuing this beast vinyl.

The band's sound is undoubtedly rooted in doom and sludge, however they have managed to extract the bleakest aspects of both genres and blend them together with disturbing atmospherics to create their own unique and frankly depressing take on metal.
The fact the band have just completed their second tour with Primitive Man (and PM frontman ELM is a big fan) should give you a hint of the sort of vitriol you can expect on this record.
