Full length album CD format c/o Lost Apparitions Records in 6-panel digi-pak case.
Massachusetts four-piece Conclave not only draw on the inspirations of bands such as Black Sabbath, EyeHateGod and Autopsy with their debut full-length, ”Sins of the Elders”, but combine their death and doom influences into a unique blend of heavy grooves, pounding sludge and melodic doom; all of which tantalize the listener to dig further. Their sound emerges difficult to categorize, but still pleasing to fans of all facets of metal.
With a musical resume that includes such acts as WarHorse, Grief, Disrupt, Desolate and Martyrvore, it would only make sense that this New England collective are no strangers to working with record labels such as Relapse, Southern Lord and Century Media. Through several bands and projects together, Conclave’s members have honed their approach to a bludgeoning impact, and their album is the culmination of everything they’ve experienced to this point, musically and personally.
”Sins of the Elders” was recorded with Eric Braunschweiger and Raven’s Head Studio in Allston, MA. Building off their 2014 self-released EP “Breaking Ground”, the band offers 9 tracks of staggeringly heavy and atmospheric oppression and continue to stamp out their own musical path. There will be no bowing down to trends or watering down the riffs with this band. It’s pure and honest metal in an uncompromised form. “Sins of the Elders” will be released on CD format through Lost Apparitions Records and on cassette tape format through PATAC Records on June 10, 2016.
