Scion A/V has announced the release of a new five-track digital EP and music video from Yonkers, New York-based death metal veterans IMMOLATION. "Scion A/V Presents: Immolation - Providence EP" will be available as a free download via www.scionav.com. The EP will also be distributed for free in CD and vinyl formats at shows during the IMMOLATION North American tour 2011 and at select Scion partner retail locations.
According to a press release, "Providence" "showcases [IMMOLATION's] trademark harmonic dissonance, along with their militaristic and complex rhythms while losing none of their signature menace."
"We're excited to be working with such a unique band such as IMMOLATION," says Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotions for Scion. "Their drive and diligence scream just as loud as their vocal, and we wouldn't have it any other way."
"Scion A/V Presents: Immolation - Providence EP" track listing:
01. What They Bring
03. Still Lost
05. Swallow The Fear
IMMOLATION's Tommy Jones-directed video for the song "A Glorious Epoch", can be viewed below. The track comes off the band's eighth album, "Majesty And Decay", which was released in March 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD sold around 1,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 29 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"Majesty And Decay" was recorded Millbrook Sound Studios in New York with longtime producer Paul Orofino. Mixing duties were handled by Zack Ohren, who has previously worked with DECREPIT BIRTH, SUFFOCATION and ALL SHALL PERISH, among others.
"Majesty And Decay" is the third consecutive release featuring IMMOLATION's current lineup:
Ross Dolan - Bass, Vocals
Robert Vigna - Guitars
Bill Taylor - Guitars
Steve Shalaty - Drums
