Hadal Maw release new single “White Elephant” from “Charlatan” EP – out Aug 3
Hadal Maw are today unleashing “White Elephant” – their brand new cut from forthcoming EP Charlatan. The crushing new single is the second cut from the EP, following the release of Idolatry a few weeks ago. The EP is available for pre-order now at www.hadalmaw.com and will be released into the world on Friday August 3. They will be out on tour alongside Psycroptic and Archspire from August 16.
Since their inception in 2010, Hadal Maw have fast procured a stature as a benchmark for creating new perspectives on heavy music.
Moving forward with their overwhelming, wall of sound approach, the band has imported elements from black metal, sludge and noise to engineer a considerably darker and denser approach than previously known. Teaming up this time with Troy McCosker (Ne Obliviscaris, Vipassi) the production is a swift departure from the tight, clean cut veneer of “Olm”, opting for a raw, livelier, unforgiving and sludgy morass, designed to pull the unwilling participant into an abyss.
Guitarist for the decimatingly heavy outfit, Ben Boyle said that “This release represents a breath of new life in the band – we approached Charlatan with a no holds barred passion and a new found aggression. In doing so, we captured an intensity that was almost cathartic in how it differed from the previous albums – in the process and in the aspired outcome. It’s raw, chaotic, and showcases the strongest points of the band and our individual styles. Each piece of the puzzle came together this time to form a unified and consistent vision, which demonstrates the strength of the current line-up. It is the purest representation of the band to date, and we couldn’t be more proud of what we accomplished.”
Hadal Maw have shared the stage with the likes of Decapitated, Suffocation, Ne Obliviscaris,Psycroptic, Beyond Creation, King Parrot, Aborted and many more.
Hadal Maw’s EP Charlatan will be released on Friday August 3 at all good online outlets and available now for physical pre-order at www.hadalmaw.com.
